Killer Instinct gets a spooky ghost and a human torch

Hisako is a spooky ghost lady ripped straight from Japanese horror films with long black hair and creepy crawling intact, certainly a cool addition to Killer Instinct for Season 2. Also revealed in the trailer is t...

Fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter still looks amazing photo
Fan-made Dragon Ball Z fighter still looks amazing
by Steven Hansen

There is perhaps less urgency in the Hyper Dragon Ball Z fan fighter coming to fruition now that Arc System Works (Guilty Gear) is releasing a robust 2D Dragon Ball Z fighter.

That does not mean I do not want to play both games, however. Especially because Hyper Dragon Ball Z is still looking excellent, as you can see above. That Gohan speaks to me on an emotional level.

Senran Kagura brings exploding clothes to Dead or Alive 5: Last Round

Senran Kagura and Dead or Alive have started a new life together with costumes that, well... they explode. What else did you expect? This relationship between the two properties -- which is purely platonic -- has spawned 16 ...

First brief look at Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden

Please cut a longer trailer, Namco. Arc System Works' (Guilty Gear) upcoming Dragon Ball Z: Extreme Butoden is the best thing to hit DBZ videogames since this unsanctioned 2D fan fighter. But damn, I just want to see more of...

More Dissidia Final Fantasy arcade details coming April 10

Square Enix's Final Fantasy-filled PSP fighter is continuing not on Sony's subsequent handheld or, as fans have always wanted, on consoles. Rather, the next iteration is a three-on-three arcade fighter, the cabinet for which...

Yup, it's official, Predator will be in Mortal Kombat X

Earlier, we told you that Predator was likely to be included in Mortal Kombat X -- but only if you were willing to pay the extra price for the Kombat Pack. Now, confirmation has come that not only will Predator be included w...

Mortal Kombat X punishes quitters with head-exploding Quitalities

Mortal Kombat X recently showed off an Ermac fatality that is actually pretty dang icky. Do check it out if you're not the squeamish sort. Less visceral -- and, wow, isn't it great when a series is so over the top an explodin...

Xbox Store slip confirms Predator for Mortal Kombat X

I've watched Predator, Predator 2, and Predators in the last week at the behest of people who've felt these were good ideas (the first idea was a fine idea, the subsequent decisions less fine). Predator 2 is a mess and Preda...

Mortal Kombat X has a giant spider and nope nope nope nope nope

Mortal Kombat X has simply gone too far this time. Look, we've put up with Scorpions and Reptiles for decades because they aren't actual scorpions and reptiles. They're just bipedal dudes fixin' to rip someone's spine ou...

Uh, ew: Ermac's Mortal Kombat Fatality is disgusting and visceral

Congratulations, Mortal Kombat X. I didn't expect to be briefly surprised and grossed out by a Fatality this side of Y2K and JNCO jeans, but you've done it. This is pretty gnarly. Look at all that viscera. I'm calling PETIO (people for the ethical treatment of inner organs: let's keep our insides inside). It's even better in enormous GIF form.

Johnny Cage proves he can still do the splits in 7-minute slice of Mortal Kombat X's story mode

Jason Voorhees konfirmed for Mortal Kombat X

Warner Bros. Interactive has just confirmed that Jason Voorhees, classic Friday the 13th horror icon, is in Mortal Kombat X as DLC. You'll be able to buy the Kombat Pack at launch for $30, which allows access to four characters, including Jason.

The publisher hints that the rest of the pack will include two "classic" characters, as well as one other "guest" character.  The Predator, perhaps? Hey, that "Komplete Edition" down the line is sounding pretty sweet right about now.

Mortal Kombat X brings back some familiar faces for Story Mode photo
Mortal Kombat X brings back some familiar faces for Story Mode
by Alessandro Fillari

It's been less than a year since its reveal, and we're already rapidly approaching the release of Mortal Kombat X. After its predecessor essentially rebooted the franchise with a return to 2D-style combat, many fans got a newfound love for the series. And though Mortal Kombat (2011) took some liberties with the lore, as it was both a reboot and sequel simultaneously, it left off in a place that had fans anxious to see what could happen next. Lucky for you, Destructoid just got a taste of what's in store.

During GDC week, Warner Bros. Interactive held a special hands-on session with the first chapter of Story Mode, along with a sampling of the versus mode and upcoming mobile game app. Though I've played quite a bit of this series in my time, I knew I could use some help discussing the franchise's lore and history. So I decided to bring along Dtoid's resident Mortal Kombat expert Abel Girmay, who's already played quite a bit of MKX, for a back-and-forth discussion about the game and how Johnny Cage has still got the stuff.
