"Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilise the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet," NetherRealm Studios creative director Ed Boon said upon its announcement.

The game is slated for a 2015 release on PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, Xbox One, Xbox 360 and PC.
