Mortal Kombat X to revive long-missing 'ality
If there's been a murder-shaped hole in your heart since the heady days of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, your bloodlust may soon be sated. Series co-creator Ed Boon revealed at Gamescom this week that a lost Fatality type from earlier Mortal Kombat games is due to make a grand return in Mortal Kombat X.

"For those who are familiar with Mortal Kombat, we first had the Fatality and we added a Babality. We had the Friendship moves, Brutality moves and all of these crazy things over the years," Boon told IGN. "We are going to be reinstating an 'Ality' from a previous game into Mortal Kombat X. And I can't wait to be able to talk about it but at the moment I can't."

2011's Mortal Kombat featured Fatalities, Babalities, and Pit Fatalities, so by our estimation, Mortal Kombat X could feature Mortal Kombat 3's Brutality combo beatdowns, character-transforming Animalities, or the comically non-violent Friendship finishers introduced in Mortal Kombat 2.

Of the candidates, Brutalities are the most likely to return. Boon previously stated that a Brutality system was planned for 2011's Mortal Kombat, but the team at NetherRealm lacked the time to finish the feature before the game shipped.

Mortal Kombat X will launch in 2015 for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PS4, and PC platforms.
