Mortal Kombat X reveal video - five bone breaks, one decapitation and counting

Out in 2015, still astonishingly violent

In the interests of full disclosure, imagine that I'm a TV anchorman screaming a news report from the middle of a raging hurricane. The news report is about Mortal Kombat X, which has just been announced for 2015 release, and the hurricane is Aoife's reaction. I'm sure she'll be able to tell you more, once she's stopped throwing chairs at me from the top of that filing cabinet.

The game's first trailer is below. Is it too early in the day for a wee Mortal Kombat-themed drinking game? Of course it isn't. Here's a suggestion: down a shot every time a bone is broken, or somebody gets stabbed/mutilated. You should be far too sozzled by the end to enquire about supporting platforms, which have yet to be confirmed. [Update: it's coming to PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One and PC.]

"Fuelled by next-gen technology, Mortal Kombat X combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with dynamic gameplay to create an unprecedented Kombat experience," reads the blurb. As CVG notes, there's plenty of environment interaction in the trailer. A hint, perhaps?
