As the release of highly-anticipated fighting game title Mortal Kombat X gets closer, NetherRealm Studios has just started kicking up the intensity of the popular fighting game that is all set to get into next generation of consoles before their eventual release into last generation.
At a recent live-stream presentation titled "MKX Kombat Kast" by NetherRealm on 13 March, the studio showed its fans footage of the story mode of the Mortal Kombat X. The gameplay footage starts form 13:38 and is titled as Johnny Cage. It is from Episode 1, reported ComingSoon.
Jason Voorhees in the Roster
The developer of Mortal Kombat X introduced the addition of Jason Voorhees, a character from the hit 1980 movie "Friday the 13th." His entry in the game is all set to raise the bar when it comes to the gore side of the game. This hockey-masked murderer from the game will be taking down other fighters daring to match him.
He will be part of the Kombat Pack, i.e the Season Pass for the game and his reveal came via official PlayStation YouTube page in a small teaser trailer.
Rumours have also surfaced suggesting characters like Predator and Spawn in the game. Since Jason is in the game will Freddy Krueger be the next in the roster? We can only wait for some hints from NetherRealm Studios.
Previously, Mortal Kombat X developer confirmed that the game will include Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade. Cage was seen in a new look. It was also revealed that the game will have their daughter Cassie, probably fighting alongside her parents, an older Kenshi, Shinnok and many others.

Last Gen Versions to be Delayed?
Rumours had been doing the rounds suggesting the game is likely to be cancelled on the last-generation versions. This was triggered due to a trailer from the game that did not announce the game will be available only in PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Steam, iOS App Store, and the Google Play Store.
However, it was later clarified via Videogamer that last-gen versions have been officially delayed until summer. NetherRealm Studios will not be the developer for the last-generation versions and it will be helmed by High Voltage Software.
Mortal Kombat X will be rolling out with its brutalities on 14 April for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC. It will be also be releasing for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 at a later date.
