Following the reveal of longtime fan-favorite Reptile, NetherRealm Studios has also announced another returning veteran in the upcoming fighting game, Mortal Kombat X.
Ermac and his psychokinetic abilities enjoy a similar origin story to Reptile. Just as our green friend was once seen as a color-swap of Scorpion and Sub-Zero, Ermac joined the fray as the “red” ninja when he first showed up in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3. Time also granted him the opportunity to move beyond this tag, and different designs over the years have led to him becoming his own unique character.
Now, he practically looks like a zombie or a villain straight from Dark Souls.
NetherRealm’s Tyler Lansdown, Derek Kirtzic and Paulo Garcia all showed off the character for the first time in a livestreaming event on the company’s official Twitch page, and many of his telekinetic powers and teleportation moves have been confirmed to return.
Mortal Kombat X will be released for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4 and PC on April 14.
