The world’s most viscerally “fatalistic” franchise just got a major mobile upgrade:
NeatherRealm Studios today announced its 2.0 update for Mortal Kombat X Mobile, officially renaming the game to Mortal Kombat to better reflect its vast content and character roster. The game will also be the primary platform for all of Mortal Kombat’s mobile experiences moving forward.
With the release of Mortal Kombat 11 approaching, those who can’t wait to sink their teeth (or kunai) into their enemies can now play as featured MK11 gold characters in a new timed game mode, Trial Challenges.
All MK11 characters will have the same Crushing Blows and Fatal Blows as their console versions. These include:
MK11 Raiden and MK11 Jade are powerful Gold characters that provide a unique synergy when paired together. Players can add them to their roster by completing tiers in the new Trials mode.MK11 Scorpion can be earned through Faction War rewards. As one of the most powerful characters in the game, Scorpion boasts high base stats and the ability to provide a Lethal Blow chance to his MK11 teammates.
An additional 23 existing Gold characters have also ascended to Diamond Tier with updated passive skills, stat increases and increased team synergy, allowing even more creative and strategic gameplay.
Along with a fresh UI design, a new Quest Map and a slew of different store items, the Mortal Kombat mobile has also been upgraded to Unreal Engine 4, so players can enjoy all the bone-crunching savagery with improved graphics and performance.
