Mortal Kombat 11 Announced

Mortal Kombat 11 is revealed at The Game Awards 2018 and it turns out to be an absolute gore fest between Dark Raiden and Scorpion!

Earlier this year, a Tweet from game director Ed Boon of NetherRealm Studios started speculation that he may have teased upcoming release of Mortal Kombat fighting game series, Mortal Kombat XI and it will be revealed on E3 2018 but never happened anyway.

A few weeks ago from today, voice actor Eduardo Garza blasts his frustration on Twitter for being removed from the project, which may or may not be MKXI but surely is the next installment and everyone believed the title will be announced at The Game Awards 2018.

So, here we are now to witness the world premiere trailer of Mortal Kombat 11 in its gory glory and intensity of the iconic franchise.




RELATED: Mortal Kombat XI May Be Announced at E3 2018

The trailer opens up on a destroyed Courtyard full of charred corpse of monks at night and then two fighters collide in air from both sides out of nowhere. We see Scorpion grabbing Raiden in mid-air and pinning down to the ground before stabbing him with a katana blade.

The God of Thunder stands up to return the favor and impales his opponent with a lightning spear after landing some serious blow of combos. On the background of this extreme beat down, a hip-hop track titled "Immortal" by 21 Savage is playing.

The resurrected ninja then gets up to his feet to apparently stab the Elder God on his face and then delivering his famous spear attack. Raiden fights back by crushing the hard-shell face of his enemy and then blasted his head with a concentrated electric charge.

He turns around to see another version of the undead assassin entering the arena and goes up in flame to fly straight through the protector of Earthrealm. Scorpion then beheaded Dark Raiden and throws his spear into the head, thus finishing him off for a flawless victory.

For curious minds, Raiden going to the dark side is a clear sign that the game picks up from the cliffhanger ending of Mortal Kombat X, where he warned to the new rulers of Netherrealm or to any invaders that he won't be as merciful as everyone knows him to be.

As for the two different iteration of Scorpion appearing, we believe the plot of MK11 either has some twist regarding Multiverse colliding or maybe the characters are going back and forth in time for some still undisclosed reason.

RELATED: Batman: Court of Owls Game Teased

Also, the ending of the trailer shows a glimpse of another female character, whose role in the story is yet to be revealed. Recurring antagonist Shao Kahn is returning to the game as a pre-order bonus character and will join the beta testing phase.

Developers have introduced a Custom Character Variation System that will grant players control to customize the fighters and some familiar face will come back too. A community event will take place on January 17 at 11 AM PST and more details on the title will come out eventually.

For more than decades, the series has been one of the most popular among fighting game genre and features some of the most iconic warriors that ever stepped into an arena. Seeing it all return with a strong follow-up definitely gives us the chills down the spine.

Mortal Kombat XI Revealed by Voice Actor

Anticipating NetherRealm Studios' title Mortal Kombat XI has been revealed ahead of time by former voice actor.

It has been three years since the last installment of legendary fighting game series Mortal Kombat was released back in 2015 as Mortal Kombat X from developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. but we got no news of a sequel yet.

Neither the studio nor series co-creator Ed Boon has said anything about it but yet the cat might get out of the bag finally as a former voice actor of the project may have revealed Mortal Kombat XI on Twitter recently.

Though there is no official confirmation against or on behalf of this claim, fans of the franchise knows how tight lipped the developers are about their projects. Besides, NetherRealm actually confirmed working on a new game indeed but the title was never disclosed.

Some even rumored for a sequel of the crossover fighting game Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe but Ed Boon himself has shot that claim down. Then it the remaining hints points only toward the development of MKXI.

RELATED: Injustice 2 Scrapped Character Concept Art Revealed

However, a clearly unhappy voice actor Eduardo Garza blasts off all rumors on Mortal Kombat XI over Twitter regarding an issue and revealed that the game is indeed in the making.



RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Turns out, MKXI very much exists and is in development Garza who was doing voice-over for Kung Lao and Reptile. He quickly took the social media to express his frustration, when he was removed from the project by Pink Noise and not directly by NetherRealm though.

Garza also worked on Krillin in Dragon Ball and Lucio in Overwatch in the past as dubbing actor. He also clarified later that he didn't know for sure whether it was MKXI, MK10.5 or MKXYZ, because they released Mortal Kombat XL as an extended version of MKX.

RELATED: Justice League Movie Skins For Injustice 2

Back in May 2018, Ed Boon actually dropped a potential tease replying a random Twitter user in response to a query regarding the newest DLC of Injustice 2, which made everyone believe that MKXI most probably be revealed at E3 2018.



RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Darkseid

Boon using the letter "K" instead of "C" had us believe that there was going to be a big reveal at E3 but nothing happened so far! Right now, we are very close to The Game Awards '18, which will kick start on December 7 and would be a perfect stage to announce the game then.

Whenever NetherRealm and Warner Bros. decide to bring back the franchise with Mortal Kombat XI, we expect to see some major gameplay renovation and their micro-transaction mechanics to be fixed. Hopefully they have learned a lot from making Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE Immortals.

Injustice 2 Scrapped Character Concept Art Revealed

New unused character designs of John Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin for the game revealed by Injustice 2 concept artist.

Following their immense success with 2013's fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us, NetherRealm Studios came up with a sequel, Injustice 2 for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One in 2017, that even surpassed its predecessor in many aspects.

The game has a roster full of iconic DC Comics characters as playable fighters as well as other heroes like Hellboy from Dark Horse Comics and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles from IDW Publishing. Recently, a number of unused concept arts have revealed a few characters that didn't make it to the final roster.

Shared on ArtStation by senior concept artist Justin Murray, these min-blowing artworks of the characters from Injustice comic books has Batman's protege Bluebird, Detective ChimpEtrigan the DemonJohn Constantine, Krypto the Superdog and Penguin.

During the story arc in comics, they have either sided with The Regime and The Insurgency or chose their own way but there was no apparent reason for excluding them from the game. However, we didn't wait for any official statement and have our own theory on it.

For one, neither Detective Chimp nor Penguin is a competitive fighter who can give other playable characters a tough time. Even occult detective John Constantine is no physical combatant despite him being a highly skilled sorcerer.

Young vigilante hero Bluebird on the other hand could've made it but considering other better-known costumed fighters like Batgirl and Zatanna didn't made it to the sequel, this electrical engineer from Batman comics introduced during the run of Scott Snyder (All-Star Batman – My Own Worst Enemy, Batman – Court of the Owls) had slim chances.

Another plausible reason for these characters not to show up in Injustice 2 maybe because many of them ended up dying in the Injustice: Gods Among Us comic-book series, thus their presence in the game could have been tricky for the storyline to connect.

Etrigan The Demon lost his connection to mortal realm when Jason Blood, his human host was killed in a battle against The Regime. Although John Constantine didn't die after his rebellion of magic community took a stand opposing Superman, he simply left the conflict.

The original publisher for the Mortal Kombat series, NetherRealm Studios may strongly consider another sequel to the Injustice franchise and these characters can even show up in that game if they are somehow brought back to the tie-in comic-books.

According to some recent rumor flying around, the studio is already working on a new project and it can either be a new installment for Mortal Kombat or Injustice 3, which we can only tell for sure once we get some more evidence on hand.

Mortal Kombat XI May Be Announced at E3 2018

A playful tease on Twitter by Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon suggests the upcoming announcement for Mortal Kombat XI at E3 2018.

Before working on fighting game series like Injustice: Gods Among Us and WWE Immortals, NetherRealm Studios came to be known as the house of the legendary Mortal Kombat series. From the '90s era this franchise has been known to all for dreadful violence and a tense gameplay.

It has changed and then evolved over time but still remains popular after two decades. Recently, a Tweet from game's director Ed Boon may have teased for Mortal Kombat XI, which probably is on its way.

RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Series creator Ed Boon has found immense success though the first Injustice game and its sequel, Injustice 2 but yet wants people to remember how important it is. Boon occasionally jokes around with his fans over social media every now and then.

This also supplies a lot of potential clues for upcoming games and additional contents. Most of the tie his Tweets are not just trolling and besides, since there is a hint of a tease, he probably isn't kidding and might really drop something.

RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Enchantress

Lately, when a random Twitter user was pointing out that it would really be cool if their studio introduces a fourth DLC pack of new characters this year for their critically acclaimed fighting game Injustice 2.

Though he didn't shut him down on the possibility of that ever happening but decided to counter asking him "You know what ELSE would be kool....?" If you know that his history of fondness for using the letter "K" instead of "C", then you will notice that it surely is a tease for Mortal Kombat!



RELATED: Justice League Movie Skins For Injustice 2

Also, it all makes sense because from 2013, NetherRealm Studios has been releasing Mortal Kombat titles and Injustice series one after another. Since DC Universe fighting game Injustice 2 came out almost a year ago, an E3 2018 reveal won't really be that surprising at all.

Maybe will all these recent leaks from Walmart for upcoming games are what inspired Boon to be a bit playful about their upcoming project. The good news is, we will not have to wait much longer to find out the truth as E3 is almost upon us.

RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Hellboy

The last game from the franchise was 2015's Mortal Kombat X, which was released on Android, iOS, PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. So, it is safe to assume that the alleged new installment will also be compatible with these platforms as well.

For years, the studio has been developing all these incredible fighting games, which keeps us well entertained and always wanting some more. Let's just wait and see what Ed Boon and his teams are working so hard on these days!

Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Just as the prequel Injustice: Gods Among Us took the gaming world by storm, developer NetherRealm Studios presents fighting game Injustice 2 repeated the history and created a new one. Back in November 2017, NetherRealm made announcement of introducing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles to the world of DC's most popular duel of heroes on February 2018 and that time is finally here.

From across the Multiverse, our beloved heroes in half-shell have finally made their way to Injustice 2 and they have just debuted in a gameplay trailer today. Watch them boys at work with their bo-staff, nunchakus, sai and sword.




Seeing Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo going up against the biggest and baddest there is from the DC Universe is truly a spectacle of a lifetime. However, bringing the fan favorite mutant heroes from another franchise makes a lot of eyebrows raise but this is not the first time Warner Bros. have done that. Previously, paranormal investigator and a demon from Hell, Hellboy of Dark Horse Comics along with Mortal Kombat's Raiden joined the Injustice 2 roster.

RELATED: Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Hellboy

Well, the Ninja Turtle brothers fight the warlord from Dimension X and their arch-nemesis Krang on a regular basis and he is from out of the world. So, obviously there is quite a lot of inter-dimensional travelling they do very often. One such trip has gone sore and they have ended up in a world not any less-crazier than theirs. Besides, DC Universe has their fair share of twisted plots regarding the Multiverse and that makes the explanation pretty legit.

Oh and in case, anyone was wondering, Ed Boon from NetherRealm Studios has posted on Twitter how to get your Ninja Turtles from the character selection screen of the game.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will join the fight this month and the date will actually depend on the players. Those who own the Ultimate Edition of Injustice 2 can get their hands of them from February 13. Otherwise, you can also buy the Ultimate Pack or Fighter Pack 3 for access to the characters on that same day. Rest of the players worldwide will have their turn from February 20 onwards and the stand-alone DLC purchase will cost them only $9.99.

Injustice 2 is a fighting video game based on the properties of DC Comics, which was released by NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive for PC, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One to begin with. A version of the game is also available to play on Android and iOS devices as well. We are still hoping that they feature a few popular characters from Watchmen franchise of DC Comics to the game someday.

Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Enchantress

NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have been pampering their fans by introducing new DLC characters every now and then for their insanely popular fighting game Injustice 2, a sequel to 2013's Injustice: Gods Among Us. The next fighter to be added to the game is Suicide Squad member Enchantress beginning from January 9. We all are introduced with a version her in the 2016's live-action DCEU film portrayed by actress Cara Delevingne.

Enchantress is joining the Injustice 2 roster next week and below is a gameplay trailer showcasing her moves and fighting skills that she will be bringing to the fight.




As Enchantress is a demonic entity who possessed June Moone, we are bound to witness her cast a bunch of magic spells against her opponents and that is what happened in the trailer above. She displays some of her deadly move sets on her Task Force X colleague Deadshot and Harley Quinn as they both fell under the hex of Enchantress. Her power sets mostly are trashing her opponents with blasts and sharp weapons constructed with dark magic. She can even summon demons from other dimensions to assist her and can even turn one’s soul onto their own.

Players who have access to Fighter Pack 3, Ultimate Edition or the Ultimate Pack can have their access to the character from January 9 and those who do not, can buy the DLC from onwards January 16. The news announced back in November 2017 regarding Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles joining Injustice 2 along with Atom and Enchantress for Fighter Pack 3, The Atom is already released and Enchantress is coming within a few days. NetherRealm and WB Games are probably meaning save up Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles for last.

Justice League Movie Skins For Injustice 2

Justice League perhaps was one of the most anticipated superhero-film of the year 2017 and it is out on theaters already. Warner Bros. has decided to celebrate the release of the movie by dropping Justice League skins to latest installment of Injustice; one of the most popular fighting game series DC has ever made. Yes, Injustice 2 now features costumes and gears from the new Justice League movie.

Players of Injustice 2 can now access the costumes of Batman, Wonder Woman, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg, based on the looks of their movie counterparts. Check out the following clip to get a good glimpse of how cool it would make your heroes look like in the game.




These amazing gears and skins will not just be handed to you when you run the game. You have to earn them through some playing and then you can have the costumes of your favorite Justice League characters from DC Cinematic Universe. Injustice 2’s Multiverse mode will lead you to six special events related to a member of Justice League. You have to fight your way out of each event to unlock each character's costume from the Justice League movie.

With the release of DCEU's Wonder Woman movie, there was a challenge akin to these in the Multiverse panel and players were allowed to customize the titular character from Injustice 2 to look like version that Gal Gadot has portrayed of the character in the film. The same Wonder Woman skin is back again but now there are skins for the five other teammates of her from the League. Then again, Injustice 2 doesn't deliver an exact iteration of the gears for every hero.

Batman and The Flash gear sets gives the characters similar look to Ben Affleck and Ezra Miller’s characters. Aquaman and Cyborg may appear slightly different even though their skins have taken inspiration from the film. However, Superman isn't getting his own set among the Justice League members. Possibly, this is because the Man of Steel was mostly out of all the promotional clips and his involvement in the movie's plot was kept a secret.

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles Joins Injustice 2

Developer NetherRealm Studios' ground-breaking fighting game Injustice 2 still awaits its PC release on November 14, 2017. We already know that a DC character; Atom will join the battle very soon like many fan-favorites before him and now, during the Injustice 2 World Championship event, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Enchantress is announced as part of Fighter Pack 3 characters to everyone's surprise.

Already adding non-DC Universe characters like Mike Mignola (Abe Sapien, Lobster Johnson)’s Hellboy and Mortal Kombat's Raiden to the roster of fighters, adding of Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will be quite a blast for the fans. Now, check out the reveal trailer for Fighter Pack 3 for Injustice 2 first as we are about to discuss what's coming for us.




We agree that adding Hellboy to the Injustice 2 playable character list was a bit oddly surprising but fans have loved the idea so far. However, introducing Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles; heroes in a half shell were something no one really saw coming and you can tell how surprised the entire fanboy nation was by the #TMNT trend on Twitter yesterday! Everyone just literally lost their mind over the reveal of Leonardo, Donatello, Raphael and Michelangelo.

This one surprise was actually kept under wraps for a long time and not only the reveal of it was surprising to the fans but the folks behind the games were astonished to see that they really made it. Even game's director Ed Boon expressed his awe in a Tweet.



The game Injustice 2 is a surprise itself by being an even improved version of its prequel Injustice: Gods Among Us. Plus, the huge array of popular character added to the fighter roster is a great achievement too. Rumor has it that, the game might even add some characters from the Watchmen franchise of DC Comics as well.

There is also some criticizing about NetherRealm Studios' constant adding of unnecessary or gimmick characters though but looks like the majority of the audience took their introduction with absolute optimism. How these characters will matter to the game is yet to be disclosed. We still don't know if each of the Ninja Turtles heroes will be solo heroes or are they part of a single tag-team.

Atom and Enchantress will have their own place with the former's shrinking abilities and the latter's malevolent magic. Rather than rocking her Suicide Squad movie look, Enchantress is designed mostly to look alike her comic-book counterpart. Atom's character will be available on December 12th's early access. Then Enchantress and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will join the fight in January and February respectively.

Injustice 2 Gameplay Trailer Features Hellboy

The immensely popular sequel to NetherRealm’s fighting game Injustice: Gods Among Us from 2013 has already taken over the minds of the fans worldwide. The storyline and the gameplay of the series are what keeping them on their toes. Plus, there is an ever-expanding roster of fan-favorite characters from DC Universe. Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Entertainment decided to introduce one more star to the lot.

Injustice 2 – Introducing Hellboy!

If you are not reading this wrong, then Hellboy is making his way to fight the players of Injustice 2 and a gameplay trailer showing his insanely raging moves against the opponents is right below for you to check out before we dive deep into the scoop.




Though comic-book creator Mike Mignola (Abe Sapien, Lobster Johnson)’s Hellboy character is a property of Dark Horse Comics, he found his place among the heavy hitters of DC Comics-based fighting game Injustice 2. Since Raiden's character from Mortal Kombat has already joined the race, Hellboy's addition to the game will surely bring a new edge on the already action-packed mode of the arena.

Fans of the character know that our Big Red hero is a paranormal detective for B.P.R.D. but also a demon by birth. Injustice 2 will add in the impact of both of his persona into his fighting style. For instance, if his opponents are in a mid-range, he will use his trusty pistol the Good Samaritan on them. If they gets close to him, then may God have mercy on them as the Right Hand of Doom is going to introduce them to a whole world of pain.

In the above shown gameplay trailer, Hellboy is pitted against Red Lantern Corps member Atrocitus, who takes a brutal punishment from the demon. Whereas Atrocitus keeps urging on giving in on his anger, Anung Un Rama effortlessly gives him a beat-down and then took to the depths of Hell itself to inflict some more brutality on him to justify his true form.

Hellboy joins the fighting ground on November 14 in the Fighter Pack 2 DLC of the game as a guest character. Available only for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, Injustice 2 is also confirmed for a PC version to release soon.
