The Mortal Kombat franchise is finally getting a mobile game and honestly it is about damn time too. Warner Bros has officially unveiled a Mortal Kombat game for mobile devices called Mortal Kombat X and while it may not be 100% what we would hope would come in a Mortal Kombat game for mobile devices, it isn’t completely not want we want either.
UPDATE: May 4th, 3:39 PM, PST: Based on our recent poll, it looks as if a lot of people are still looking forward to downloading Mortal Kombat X. Your wait is finally over. The game is now available to download in the Google Play Store. Let’s see if it has been worth the wait. After you have downloaded it, let us know what you think. The game can be downloaded for free. However, there are in-app purchases in the game, should you choose to take advantage of them. The link to download the game is at the end of this article. “Get over here!”
Mortal Kombat X is a free-to-play fighting/card-battler hybrid title that is being developed by NetherRealm Studios and will be published by Warner Bros on Google Play when it is done. The gameplay will be a head-to-head brawler, like most Mortal Kombat games, but will feature card battler mechanics meshed into a brawler. It seems like a bit of a weird hybrid to do but it might actually work out well. All of the main Mortal Kombat characters will be a part of this game as well, so you can expect Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Raiden to name a few. There will also be some ‘next generation’ characters as well.
If you are worried about the blood and fatalities not being there, which is a large part of what makes the Mortal Kombat franchise what it is, Warner Bros has mentioned that those will be in the game as well. We are guessing that there might be an option to turn them on/off in order to keep the gore away from the little kids. There will also be multiplayer but there hasn’t been a lot of details released about that just yet. As for the card collecting aspect, we are guessing it will be for characters because the fighting looks like it is all action-based.
The PC and console version of Mortal Kombat X will be released on April 14th, 2015 and if you own a copy of that game, you will be able to unlock additional content in the mobile version and vise versa. You will need a Warner Bros Play account to have access to that feature though. As for when the mobile version will be released, Warner Bros is stating that we can expect the game to land on Google Play sometime in April 2015 as well.
