The Mortal Kombat series has actually had one of the better running stories in the fighting game genre. Characters fight, die, fall in love, etc. With the previous game doing a great job of reintroducing the world and its characters, its follow up has a lot to live up to in terms of story. Thankfully it looks to be hitting the mark with the Mortal Kombat X story trailer, which was released today. In it you get a look at some of the new characters, such as Jacqueline Briggs, and Takashi Takeda.
The description for the Mortal Kombat X story trailer reads “The Who’s Next? – Official Mortal Kombat X Story Trailer, showcases the new generation of characters as they join forces to fight against the power hungry clone Mileena and her Outworld rebel army.”
“Taking place 25 years after the events of Mortal Kombat (2011), the new generation of characters will discover that Outworld is not the only threat they face. Fans will get a first look at the newest fighters to join Cassie Cage, including Jacqueline Briggs, daughter of Jax, Takashi Takeda, son of Kenshi and Kung Jin, descendant of Kung Lao.”
Getting to play as the descendants of former Mortal Kombat fighters is a pretty cool idea, and should help fans accept the new characters as a part of the universe they have enjoyed for years. Mortal Kombat X will be released on April 14th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
