Now that Mortal Kombat X has released for all fighting game fans to enjoy, most figured that the NetherRealm Studios hype train would die down. However, that couldn’t be further from the truth. The MK X developer has a robust DLC schedule planned, and that includes new character reveals, gameplay trailers, and fighting game variation breakdowns.
Up next for Mortal Kombat X is the release of the Tanya DLC bundle and Klassic Pack 1 costume add-on, both of which will hit for Kombat Pack owners tomorrow, June 2nd. In celebration of Tanya’s release, NetherRealm have unveiled a new trailer that provides a brief overview of the fighter’s move set and concludes with a gruesome fatality. Check it out above.
By and large, Tanya looks to be an agile fighter capable of stringing together fast-paced combos and weapon attacks. It’s unclear which moves are specific to Tanya’s three variations, but it appears at least one of them will feature teleports and one will focus on a staff weapon.
Since there is no HUD during the Mortal Kombat X trailer it’s hard to glean just how damaging Tanya’s move set might be. Unlike Jason Voorhees, the first DLC character added to Mortal Kombat X, we expect Tanya to be focused on delivering less damage per hit, but higher hit combos.
It also wouldn’t be a character reveal trailer without a look at Tanya’s fatality for Mortal Kombat X. Only rather than leaving players hanging, NetherRealm Studios has decided to let the full scene play out, and boy is it gruesome. Essentially, Tanya swings her way completely through Cassie Cage’s torso, coming out with her heart and intestines on the other side. Gross.
While the Mortal Kombat X trailer does a great job of teasing Tanya it’s only a set-up for the larger reveal. As we’ve previously detailed, NetherRealm has a Kombat Kast scheduled for later today, June 1st, that will focus exclusively on Tanya’s move set and her three variations.
During the stream players should be able to get a better idea as to how Tanya plays and whether or not she’s worth picking up for $4.99. We also wouldn’t be surprised to see the new Klassic Pack 1 skins make an appearance, offering closer looks at the new costume add-ons for Kano, Liu Kang, and Sonya Blade.
Any who do tune in for the stream should also keep their eyes peeled for potential Mortal Kombat X teases for future characters. The Jason livestream, for example, featured a brief look at Predator’s Mortal Kombat X design, despite him not being the next DLC character in line. Perhaps we might see more of the ‘80s action antagonist later today.
What do you think of Tanya in Mortal Kombat X? Will you be buying the DLC character?
Mortal Kombat X adds Tanya for June 2nd for Kombat Pack owners and June 9th for everyone else. Tanya costs $4.99 by herself and the Klassic Pack 1 costs $3.99, or you can pick up the bundle for $7.99.
