Get over here, wherever you are: Mortal Kombat X will also be mobile

Mortal Kombat X is coming to mobile devices as a fighting game/card battle hybrid for mobile devices, publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment confirms. Developer NetherRealm Studios is working on the mobile version in addition to the larger release, which is coming to PlayStation, Windows, and Xbox platforms on April 14, 2015.

“NetherRealm Studios has created a Mortal Kombat X mobile experience that allows more players than ever before to play this over-the-top fighting game through their ever-present smartphones, tablets, or other devices,” series co-creator and NetherRealm creative director Ed Boon said. “What’s more, we’ve expanded the unique cross-connectivity feature that links the mobile and console versions of Mortal Kombat X, delivering unique rewards to all players for simply playing the mobile game.”

The mobile version, which will be available for Android and iOS devices, can be used to unlock content in the console/Windows version and vice versa through a WB Play account, but the nature of these unlockable bonuses is unknown at present. Gameplay combines fighting, card collection, and multiplayer team combat. The mobile release features an extensive roster of characters, including series favorites like Sub-Zero and Raiden, alongside newcomers. It is not clear whether both versions share the same complete roster.

Mortal Kombat rocked the video gaming world in 1992 with its lifelike (for the time) character models and extreme use of gore. NetherRealm, founded by the series’ creators, has taken over the franchise since 2011 under the aegis of Warner Brothers.

Mortal Kombat X for iOS and Android is free-to-play, so expect it to feature microtransactions of some kind. WB hasn’t yet shared any details on how that might work.
