Reptile, the acid spitting ninja that quickly won favor (or not thanks to his confusing invisibility ability in MK II), will be joining the lineup in Mortal Kombat X. This latest iteration of the Mortal Kombat series has been building anticipation thanks to a series of tantalizing reveals, new characters, and some of our favorite faces. It’s about time too! Mortal Kombat fans (like yours truly) have been waiting since 2011 to get another taste of the funny and brutal combat that has made the series so unique. Want to see what kinds of carnage we can expect from Reptile in Mortal Kombat X? Check out the trailer below that includes some gameplay and even features Reptile executing one of his fatalities:
So who will Reptile be battling against in the forthcoming title? The roster currently features 13 characters (including Goro who’s slated to be a pre-order exclusive only) and is a mix of new and familiar faces. The four new fighters who are waiting to spill blood (or spill theirs) are Kotal Kahn, Cassie Cage, D’Vorah and the Ferra/Torr combination. Reptile will be reunited with some fan favorites that include Scorpion (obviously), Kitana, Raiden, and Kano. Reptile’s inclusion in the exciting line up of kombatants isn’t the only reason why Mortal Kombat fans are not so patiently waiting for Mortal Kombat X’s April release. Each character will have multiple playable variants with each one getting its own distinctive look. Every character variant will feature unique combat abilities which means that to survive in Mortal Kombat X, you will need to use a completely different strategy.
With so many things to look forward to in the new Mortal Kombat X, it makes waiting for the April release all the more agonizing. PC, Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3 and PlayStation 4 fans will be shouting “Toasty!” when its released on the aforementioned platforms on April 14th.
