Mortal Kombat X Dev Discusses Goro, Quan Chi’s Resurrected Characters

Mortal Kombat X has a tendency to introduce a superlative degree to gore; and we love it for that. the game is still a couple of months away and so here are a few new details that would keep you interested for a while.

Executive producer for the game, Shaun Himmerick was recently discussing different aspects of the game when he discussed resurrection and role of dead characters in the game.

You might or might not remember the setting of Mortal Kombat 9, but let me refresh one thing for you. The game featured characters that Quan Chi, the sorcerer had resurrected to fight you.

Now, Mortal Kombat X also has Quan Chi, and according to Himmerick, that create the possibility of the same thing in this game as well. he explained these ‘revenants’ in detail:

They looked a little zombie-esque, revenants as we call them, so that is a possibility in the game. Now, in the lore of Mortal Kombat, Quan Chi has resurrected various people from the dead and they’ve returned in various forms that don’t always work, because his technology isn’t the greatest, right? So, there are ways to bring back people.

Moving on, he also discussed what would be the impact of Goro being a preorder only character on tournaments. In his opinion he might also get disallowed like Kratos in Mortal Kombat 9.

However he did say that players ‘will have a version of the game where they can put it on the machines to have him.’ So yes, you will at least be able to practice against Goro even if you didn’t preorder the game.

Mortal Kombat X is slated for a release on April 14, 2015.
