We are less than a week away from the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event: the event where they will reveal things about Mortal Kombat 11. And if you missed the news, @Charybdis and @HellblazerHawkman will be at the London and LA events respectively to do that live coverage thing we've heard so much about. Continue...

So here it is! The official cover art for Mortal Kombat 11. Some of you may be looking at this and saying "this looks familiar". And you are right, this was part of an earlier leak that many of us thought was malarky. But with this final design, it appears that we may finally have confirmation on one of these many leaks.

With Shao Kahn's full look being the story of the day yesterday, it was only fitting for the Defender of Earthrealm (now the Aggressor?) to get his look revealed. So yeah. Here it is. Check that out.

Dragons are a mysterious and powerful species, possessed of many extraordinary powers. There appears to be at least two species of dragons, as we have evidence of the most powerful of the kind being referred to as ‘great’ dragons. Though it is unknown if they exist in all realms or what commonalities species, or individuals, may share, the Gold and Red Dragons, Orin and Caro, had great power, including the ability to open portals, breathe fire and seemed functionally immortal. The seal of the Elder Gods themselves, used as the sigil of the Mortal Kombat tournament, is itself a dragon, and dragons appear in the mythology and lore of many races throughout the realms.

The most impactful ‘dragon’ in the history of the realms was no myth, however. He was the legendary Onaga, the Dragon King of Outworld who ruled long after the creation of the realms (though many thousands of years before our current time). It is unknown if Onaga himself was truly a dragon or if that was merely an... Continue......

As the community eagerly looks towards MK11 like the insatiable fanboys we all are, a lot of people are looking back on MKX, myself included. Having played a hundred or so Ranked games over the holidays, it was hard to come to the conclusion that the game will live on as a true classic of MK.

It feels so lacking. The gameplay just doesn't compare to the heavy footsies based style of MK9 but more importantly the game doesn't pop, it doesn't feel alive and vibrant the way MK2, UMK3 or MK9 do. And the roster sucks. Even having a main who suits you and a character you like, shout out Cybernetic Kano's zoning and corner combos, it just isn't fun to play nor fun to immerse yourself in.

And, happily enough, this revisiting of the latest iteration in the MK franchise is the theme of the most recent Netherkast podcasts, just in time to help you on the return to the drudgery of life after the holidays!... Continue......

Another day, another amazing piece of content brought to you by the two and only, Ketchup and Mustard!

This time, everyone's tied-favourite-Englishmen, with Ketchup representing the inferior condiment but the superior cyborg (and one of the two to be personally excused of responsibility for the whole British-Empire-in-Ireland thing by me) return to MKX, discussing the place of variationless characters in the game.

It's that time of the year: Kumite in Tennessee 2019. Well, it was 2 days ago anyway. If, like me, you missed the details on who won what and whose mom popped off on Kitana Prime because she was happy her son won, have I got the thread for you! Continue...

We have a new, in-game look at Shao Kahn for his upcoming release in Mortal Kombat 11. It looks like that fancy Samurai looking gear might be part of his new outfit, with the Emperor of Outworld looking to mix things up for his first playable debut in the modern MK era. Continue...

Just a little something I threw together on a slow Friday night,thought I'd throw it up for y'all

EARTHREALM
Earthrealm has become a centre for inter-realm warfare in recent years but has historically been divorced from the affairs of other realms. In fact, Earthrealm seems unique among realms in that for the vast majority of the history of the current inhabitants of Earthrealm, the majority of those inhabitants have had no knowledge of other realms. Exceptions to this include the Shaolin Order of Light, the White Lotus Society, the Lin Kuei and the Shirai Ryu and the Black and Red Dragons, all of whom frequently interact with beings from other realms. It is a realm of much beauty, with natural forests and oceans and grasslands among a variety of terrain on a largely temperate, extremely habitable realm. This, as well as the great power said to be found in Jinsei of Earthrealm, has led to it being the object of many conqueror’s desires, most famously Shinnok and... Continue......

If you've been under a rock, Netherealm Studios is hosting two events on January 17th showing off Mortal Kombat 11 and all those sweet details they are ready to give to the public. One is an invite-only event located in Los Angeles, the other is open to the public in London. Well, it was until they sold out of tickets. BUT ALL IS NOT LOST! The crew at East London Fighters is giving away two tickets to the event, so if you can make it to London, this is your chance. Continue...

So, I was playing some MKX and thinking "Omg, the voices of Mileena and Kitana are so freaking good I wonder who did them. I found out it's the amazing Karen Strassman who does both and I was curious to see if she'd given any hints or liked anything on Twitter in terms of her returning to Mortal Kombat 11. Continue...

Combo Breaker: Chicago's big major. Also happens to be the biggest major for the NRS scene, with Netherrealm Studios based out of that other American city that cares a lot about their pizza. Combo Breaker 2019 also happens to be the first major featuring Mortal Kombat 11, which is set to release the month before. The excitement around this year's event has seen the biggest early registration numbers they've ever had and has brought a few players out of retirement. Continue...

In the final article in this series, I’m going to discuss those characters that burn brightest when we think of who could return for MK11. Not characters who we know will be there and are always there, like Scorpion or Raiden or Sub Zero, not characters we need this game to rework, not even necessarily characters who can advance the story or massively alter the direction of the game, but characters who are just beloved and whose absence was felt in MKX

Honourable mentions: Stryker (who just doesn’t have the groundswell of support), Cyrax (who can sit out a game for Sektor for once in his goddamn life), Kabal (who can sit out indefinitely until NRS prove he can be in a game without being S tier) and Rain (who just didn’t make it onto the list. I’m sure his notoriously calm fanbase won’t throw a tantrum at this.)

BACKGROUND
Sindel was the queen of Edenia before the conquest of that realm by Shao Kahn and wife of King Jerrod. Following the conquest of Edenia and it being... Continue......

First off, hello. I don't frequent forums often, but I thought I should share what I've been working on for a bit. It's an MK2 hack based on revision 3.1 and my goal was to create a revision for my personal machine and add the content that I felt was missing but at the same time preserve the core game play experience.
