Mortal Kombat is a game created by NovaBomb123 (Nova) in conjunction with Ed Boon and NetherRealm studios. It was developed for current gen consoles and was released on April 29th, 2018.
Mortal Kombat features many returning elements to the series. It features the return of the X-Ray system in which a cinematic super move plays once you use it after reaching three bars of meter. The Variation system has returned with slight changes, while maintaining the three variation system, each variation focuses on one important factor of said character's moveset (such as a variation focusing on enhancing Sub-Zero's ice based attacks). Alongside this, each variation along with having specific brutalities per variation, each Variation has a Variation X-Ray and one Variation Fatality,
The Super meter allows for a multitude of things, with one bar you can "Enhance" or "Meter Burn" a special move. Upon meter burning a special move it can add extra hits, add an extra effect, do more damage, etc. etc, With two bars you can "Break" which upon use, stops a combo and starts right back into the battle. With three bars you can pull of the aforementioned "X-Ray". The game also brings back the Interactables system, although stages can change during battle, changing the interactables in the background.
With this new developmental staff, the entire story has been reworked, starting from the original Mortal Kombat Trilogy storyline, showing Bi-Han's apparent murder of the Shirai Ryu clan as well as explaining the backstories of each fighter. After the defeat of Shao Kahn at the hands of Raiden and the death of most of Raiden's Earthrealm team the world is soon attacked by Shinnok. After the death of Shinnok, Dark Raiden, Liu Kang and Kitana join together to try and destroy earthrealm, Fujin with the help of Bo Rai Cho and multiple others join together to finish off the reign of Raiden.
