Today, on the 27th of February, Google Developer Day 1 took place, and during it several companies developing apps for Android took to the stage to talk about what they're making, how Android dev tools have helped them and what they have allowed for the game/app. A senior producer at Netherrealm, Erin Piepergerdes, took to the stage to talk about Injustice 2 mobile, talking about the Gear system, upgraded mechanics from the first mobile game as well as showing a little more of Scarecrow than we've seen so far. The footage shows off a few new moves, including an interesting-looking special move as well as his super move. Check it out in this thread!

If ever you feel like taking a detour during Final Round, you might be interested in paying a visit to the Yomi Gaming HQ, where an FGC party called “Shenanigans 2K17” will take place on March 11th!

Last year's Hypespotting V in Glasgow, Scotland saw Warner Brothers and NRS provide a £10,000 pot bonus. We also saw competitors travel from across the world, with Honeybee and Biohazard heading over from Canada and Tekken Master coming over from Bahrain to Madzin heading over from Germany! Announcing MKXL at Hypespotting VI!

This is currently a side tournament as MKXL was not announced as one of the main games, however with enough interest it might make its way back onto the main stage for the second year!

See inside the thread for more details.

Folks, it's that time again... it seems we're getting another new character reveal next Thursday. The Injustice website has updated once again with a new date for a New Character Reveal. Among the latest character reveals are of Cyborg, Swamp Thing and Black Canary.

If the release times stay the same, you can expect to see a reveal trailer (likely released by IGN) between the hours of 8AM - 12NOON EST. Who do you want it to be?!?

IGN just posted a new gameplay video with Swamp Thing footage and he is looking AWESOME. He easily has the most creative move-list so far. He also has the most hilarious roll animation.

IGN recently conducted an interview w/ Ed Boon like no other. This interview is over 40 minutes long and covers areas of the Mortal Kombat history and Boon's initiation into the gaming industry.

Some key points and great information that is heard in the interview is that no one was laid off during the transition from Midway to Warner Bros, Mortal Kombat 9 & Injustice were being planned before Mortal Kombat vs

As teased two days ago, the InjusticeGame twitter account has dropped off a new story-trailer this morning; "Shattered Alliances Part 1: The Regime will rise - learn how #Superman became one of Earth’s greatest threats... #injustice2". The title is "Shattered Alliances: Part 1". The trailer features dialogue between Superman and Batman (a continuation from the first Injustice to where you're either w/ Superman or against him) along w/ gameplay, story and character reveal clips. A few times within this trailer, Cyborg makes an appearance.

To pair with the appearance of Cyborg, we are also expecting a "New Character Reveal" today as per the Injustice

UPDATED w/ Finals Results!

Tonight finished out yet another amazing week of the Kombat Cup provided to us by Stream.Me! We had a very impressive Top 8 w/ a lot of close matches, close sets, amazing comebacks and a great Grand Finals! Tonight's commentary featured @Mr Aquaman and @Kitana Prime as they deliver us the hype through the matches. They're commentary is especially great for newer players, as they call the matches by the second.

We'll look forward to seeing everyone

"MKX is dead."

Apparently, Warner Bros and Netherrealm Studios beg to differ with that statement! Hours ago, a post surfaced from the Final Round Twitter that sent the Mortal Kombat X scene into a wild frenzy. Courtesy of the developers, there is now a $5,000 pot bonus up for grabs at FR 20!

Harley Quinn and Wonder Woman breakdowns tomorrow at 4:00 EST / 3PM CST / 1PM PST via www.twitch.tv/netherrealm.

We've known for many months that these two characters are confirmed for the Injustice 2 roster, however, besides their reveal trailers we haven't seen a whole lot else. During the Watchtower stream we can expect to see upwards to an hour of gameplay split between the two characters.

Tonight, for the NetherRealm titles, Mortal Kombat X is the last top 8 to take place at Winter Brawl 11 hosted by Big E gaming in Essington, PA. Out of the competitors tonight, SonicFox and Dragon are the only two returning competitors from 2016's Winter Brawl. With that said, we have new and hungry competitors in this 2017 top 8 including Scar, Cossner, Dark, KevoDaMan, Forever Elite and SilverRye.

The event has great significance to our scene at this current time as Injustice 2 is right around the corner, so Mortal Kombat X having the prime Sunday stream time and proper exposure is

First off, HUGE Thank You to @BigE for making the Injustice: Gods Among Us tournament at Winter Brawl 11 a FREE entry tournament & throwing (I believe) a $500 pot bonus at the game. Injustice: GAU was said to be more pack-full than the Mortal Kombat XL tournament, which the final registrations would determine that.

Nevertheless, this Injustice tournament, just months before Injustice 2 hits the shelves (and during the very last few days of the beta) definitely rekindled the hype we once knew years ago. This tournament featured past Injustice EVO Champs KDZ and SonicFox, among others including

As we inch closer and closer to the release date for Injustice 2, I've been thinking back on the great rivalries we had during the first game's life, and thinking about what we can expect during the life of Injustice 2.

For those of you that were not around for the hype days of competitive IGAU, I've decided to compile some of the most compelling rivalries together with examples of matches from each rivalry.
