Sure, you may have the skills to pay the bills in fighting games. But can your juggles and ultra-combos make you stand out from the usual rabble of brawlers? Are you just another Sektor in plain sight, or are you runway fatality just waiting to happen? That’s the beauty of alternate costumes in fighting games, as they give players the chance to stick out a tad bit more than usual. Mortal Kombat has a history of providing fashion for fighters. And the upcoming Mortal Kombat X will have a ton more costumes available.
In fact, the NetherRealm developed game will have even more costumes per fighter, than the previous Mortal Kombat game from that studio. That’s according to executive senior producer Shaun Himmerick, who confirmed the winter line of new kombat klothing on Twitter, via MP1st:

So more than Mortal Kombat 9 but less than Injustice: Gods Among Us, a superhero brawler which had enough digital leather available for their various characters, that cattle almost went extinct. The caveat here of course, will be that all this gear will most likely wind up costing players a few dollars more in the long run, before it gets bundled up into the pbligatory GOTY version.
Still, I am determined to make my Scorpion look damn good as he bashes your face in, so there is that to consider. And no, I’m not overconfident in my skills. I’m just that good, and this statement will in no way whatsoever come back to bite me in my oversized ass.
