Mortal Kombat X News: Characters Include Goro, Storyline Details, Fatalities
Prince Goro, general of the subterranean armies of Shokan, will be in Mortal Kombat X, at least if Ed Boon's twitter has anything to say about it.
Netherealm Studios creative director Ed Boon's Twitter remains one of the premier sources of Mortal Kombat X news, and today he tweeted out a particularly juicy bit of teasing. In the past he's confirmed and denied rumors about storylines, characters and technical features of the game.
Today, he really drops a giant Shokan bomb on us. What do you make of these:

Seems pretty straightforward, huh? Goro will return. Let's add it to the list of stuff we already know!
- Sub Zero
- Kitana uncertain (a fan tweeted to Ed Boon she was dead and therefore couldn't return, to which he said "you know this is Mortal Kombat, right?")
- D'Vorah, a woman who controls insects.
- Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade.
- Kotal Kahn, an Aztec-inspired blood god.
- Ferra and Torr, a Master-Blaster like duo of a little person woman riding an armored giant dude.
Every character will have three outfits, emphasizing different fighting styles. Wear a different outfit? You'll be playing a different character almost.
Master Of Storms: set electricity based traps on the battlefield
Displacer: various teleportation and mobility powers.
Thunder God: increases hits to some normal attacks and adds Enhanced Lightning.
Kotal Kahn's variants
Blood God: you can plant boosting totems
War God: macuahuitl based special moves
Hellfire, Ninjitsu, Inferno
Sub Zero's variants:
Cryomancer, Grandmaster, Unbreakable
Cutthroat, Commando, (third unknown)
There will be NO DC characters as bonus downloads, nor will Kiefer Sutherland have any involvement in the game. Freddy Krueger, a popular MK9 bonus character, is still up for debate. There will be no Street Fighter cross-over.
The game uses the Unreal 3 engine, highly customized. 60 fps, 1080p is promised even on last-gen consoles.
