No less than an hour ago we got a new trailer for the XL Edition to Mortal Kombat X. If you did not see the trailer, you can watch it here. Suffice it to say, this is the single-biggest piece of info for MKX yet, as we see everything that will be in KP2 as well as likely coming in.
The format of this analysis will be a bit different; as the trailer was very rapid-fire, we'll focus on certain snapshots Dirtbag Daryl was kind enough to help me capture. They will be linked instead of shown like in past analyses, but please understand; it's the best way to quickly get this analysis out.
It's not even five seconds in before we get our first new skin; Ferra/Torr will be getting a new skin, and it looks fantastic; big blades on Torr, Ferra's hooded, and it just looks great! Can't wait to revisit these two with this skin.
Then, we get D'Vorah's Apocalypse Skin, and it's clear they were going a 'Mad Max' approach to this bug's skin. Where it gets interesting is not long after that, Ermac's 'steel' skin, like Blue Steel Sub Zerobut for Ermac with one of the Cosplay skins for Jacqui Briggs. Worth noting is that you will see images saying it's 'Pre-Order Exclusive ' to get the Cosplay Skins for Cassie and Jacqui, but this is likely going to be changed; for Injustice on PS4, Black Adam's New 52 skin was originally pre-order exclusive, and was later patched in. As such, if you don't get these skins right away, expect them to come in a patch. Speaking of which, we also see their alternate colors; starting with Cassie's 'Bubble Gum Sub Zero skin.
Kotal Kahn will also be getting a skin , although the theme is unknown. We also get another taste of the Apocalypse pack with Erron Black, and it's looking to be one of the best skins out there. But wait, there's more! Takeda and Alien each get a bit of the spotlight with a new skin and a tease at the Alien's second Fatality; it's probably incomplete given the surroundings being a black background. Either way, let's not split ninjas over it and move on.
