Reptile returns in Mortal Kombat X

Reptile

The newest character announced for the ever-expanding Mortal Combat X roster is none other than your favourite fighting reptile well…um, Reptile. Back to being more reptilian than human, Mortal Kombat X’s Reptile is a scaly dude – with some of his favourite moves returning.

Tongue grabs, acid spitting and flying balls of goo are all here, as is a particularly gruesome fatality – all of which you can see in the trailer below. Reptile was originally a secret enemy in the very first Mortal Kombat – and was little more than a palette swop of the other Ninjas, Scorpion and Sub Zero. He returned in Mortal Kombat II as a playable character, and quickly became a fan favourite.

Mortal Kombat X is coming in April, and promises some series firsts – like a style variation system that allows kombatants to select their styles before a fight, each varying flow of combat. It’s decidedly faster and smoother than the last ones too, with perhaps just that little more focus on the competitive fighting scene this time around.

Recently revealed returning komabtants include hat-chucking monk Kung Lao and the fan-wielding princess of Edenia, Kitana. Mortal Kombat X hits PC, PS4 and Xbox One in April this year.

    Reptile will always have a special place in my memories solely because of MK 1
