Mortal Kombat X is the latest instalment from NetherRealm Studios in the hyper-violent fighting game series Mortal Kombat, created by Ed Boon and John Tobias in the early 1990s. For the first time in the series, Mortal Kombat X allows players to choose from different variations of characters. This in turn affects both strategy and playing style. An original story drops players into the world of Mortal Kombat, showcasing notable characters from the series and bringing forth new challengers.
The series spawned several spin-off games, films, and television series. It's high levels of violence, more specifically the extremely graphic Fatality system, helped lead to the creation of the modern-day ESRB rating system.
