Mortal Kombat X features a total of 29 fighters including four DLC characters such as Jason, Predator etc.  Each fighter in the game will have different fighting variations and a set of Fatalities, Brutalities.

The game is slated for an April 14 release on PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. However, a delay has hit the game’s PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 version.

Both versions are expected sometime this summer. Developers haven’t yet announced a release date but according to a listing on GameStop, Mortal Kombat X will release on June 2 for last-gen systems.
