Alien Is Coming to Mortal Kombat X – Trailer

Alien is coming to Mortal Kombat X. Neatherrealm Studios are continuing to bring horror movie icons into the latest Mortal Kombat game and with the release of this latest trailer following the Video Game Awards, we have confirmation that the Alien will be joining the Predator and Jason:

It would appear that the Alien is intended to have taken on some of the trait of its game host, Tarkatan, giving it those armblades that you can see in the trailer.

The Alien is one of four characters to be included in this newest downloadable content pack. The other new characters include Texas Chainsaw Massacre’s Leatherface, Bo Rai Cho, and Tri-Borg. There is no specific news of a release date other than the first quarter of 2016.

The Predator saw its debut in Mortal Kombat X in July, where alongside alongside with Friday the 13th’s Jason, they added to the existing rota of Mortal Kombat X characters.

    Got super excited when I saw the chestburster come from Baraka, but then was a bit disappointed when I saw the design of the alien. I get it came from a tarkatan so it looks different but I was still hoping for the original design like what they did with the predator. :/ Here's hoping there will be a variation or skin that will give it the original look.

    Robocop could work if they use the new version since he is more smaller and faster then the original. The original Robocop would be too slow to work in MK.

    Depends on the continuity which Robocop is hailing from.. there are like.. three alternate Robocop 3 comics. Frank Miller's Robocop, Boom Studio's Robocop Last Stand, and Boom Studios Robocop series... all of which are hailed as an alternate Robocop 3. I know in the Boom Studios version, Robocop got an upgrade which allowed him to actually run.

    And even if he wasn't allowed to run in MKX... he's way too durable to fight in a hand to hand contest.

    And the Predator's design is like... ninety percent the 1987 original. The other five percent is the black armor with the Warrior variation has. The last five percent is the AVP reminiscent styled wristblades.

    Funny no one realises that each fighter has 3 variations so the takaran xenomorph may be just one of the 3 other 2 could be slightly more faithful to original designs.

    I don't play Mortal Kombat X so I don't care what the Alien looks like, however I will say that even though I understand what the game developers were aiming for with the whole DNA Reflex thing, I think it's a waste to not include the original design when it's clear that the original designs of all the other horror trademarks were used like for Predator, Leatherface, and Jason.

    Funny story. I met Ed Boon the night that the Kombat Pack 2 was announced. Unfortunately, I did not see the reveal for Kombat Pack 2. If i did, I probably would have asked him a couple questions regarding the Xenomorph.
  7. HEZ
    This is THE Alien, because THE Alien takes on the traits of its hosts :S
    The DNA reflex isn't used nearly enough by creators, I'm really glad they actually integrated it into the series rather than just throw a standard Alien in there.

    Guys...it's mortal kombat. This is the game where people have their necks broken, their spines crushed, and brains shot out in xray moves, just to get up after 2 seconds and keep on fighting. The Alien doesn't have to be super authentic and have it's blood melt the map/opposing player when it gets hit.
  9. RakaiThwei
    A normal Xeno will have trouble for x-rays and fatalities given how a xeno design would work.

    If you mean by the internal organs of a Xenomorph, which we practically know nothing about, then I would say that presents a lot of problems. Even if given the Tarkatan traits taken into account because this is still a Xenomorph.

    As cool as the Xenomorph is in Mortal Kombat X, I'm seeing a lot of... things which need to be considered. Such as Fatalities on the Xenomorph, and the X-Rays. I mean do we really expect Liu Kang to punch his fists through a Xenomorph's throat, ripping it out and shoving it into it's mouth and not expect the acid blood to be dissolving at his hand?

    With it Predator it's since their bodies are already humanoid and they are not much different from the humanoid fighters in the game expect for they have a different skull.

    Only the body shape is similar to a human. A head, body, two arms and legs-- that's where the similarities end. But the organ placement, the organs used, it's all human designed. So is even the tongue for the Predator in this game when Predator 2 established (but was largely overlooked) that they have small, forked tongues. Depending on your source of Predator lore... in the current EU, Predators have three hearts. This one has one.

    The Tarkatan Xeno was likely made so that his design can work. A normal Xeno will have trouble for x-rays and fatalities given how a xeno design would work. With it Predator it's since their bodies are already humanoid and they are not much different from the humanoid fighters in the game expect for they have a different skull.

    I'd laugh my ass off if that were the case. So the perfect organism can't survive the mk universe but Leatherface:  the backwoods retard can? It just doesn't pay to be an alien fan these days.

    I'm... well really, what did we all expect a Tarkatan-Alien to look like? I know a lot of Alien fans wanted the traditional Xenomorph, and I understand why because that's YOUR Alien. That's the creature you know and love. I mean had Boon given us Predator fans the Super Predators from PREDATORS, I would've surely been pissed off and foaming at the mouth. But we wound up with something new. A Tarkatan-Alien which... I think the concept in itself is cool but I'll admit, the design is something to be improved upon (lengthening the head would help) because it looks a little like Roger Corman's MUTANT. The head does need to look something more like an Alien but did any of us know before hand what a Tarkatan-Alien looked like or what it could?

    I dont get the hate. If you don't like the design, OK fine don't get the game or any figures relating to the design.

    It's not taking away from the original, its not breaking Into your house and replacing all your classic aliens. Chill out.

    No but it did take away our chance to actually play as THE ALIEN in a Mortal Kombat game. Predator fans got to play as a predator and of course alien fans get the developer's 12-year-old's fan-fiction. lucky us. ::)

    I'm hearing claims from some salty Alien fans (no offense to Alien fans but seriously, some of the hate is getting ridiculous) that Boon stated that the traditional Xenomorph wouldn't have been able to survive the MK universe. Can anyone prove or disprove this claim?

    The Alien looks like bastardised knock-off exploitation content rather than Official Licence material.  WBIE should do better than this.

    No wonder the 'AvP' licence has degenerated into the deepest pits of mediocrity only suitable for undiscriminating 13 year olds with no life experience.

    Meh and Fail.

    I'm happy we're getting the Alien but I agree that the design is disappointing. It would be clever if they incorporated a Facehugger Fatality that when performed successfully earned you new skins based on the DNA of the victim.

    I haven't played MKX yet but it's in my plans. I had to upgrade my TV to a 50" before getting a PS4, but it should just be another week or two. Is Motaro in the game? Imagine a Motaro hybrid, holy heck.

    Hopefully they'll improve the design before release & give us the traditional Alien...

    Well said Elemental-of-all,  just be grateful in this world thats it. Less complaining and more happiness spread around. I'm so excited for Alien as well! :D He looks so badass in the trailer and looks super cool with those blades coming out. :D
  18. elemental-of-all
    Some really picky people here.
    What if they give you the 1979 alien? Then you'll complain about the way it moves.

    Those blades coming out and the screech was awesome, more reason to get the game. More reason to get more NECA figs. I'm down with any xeno that actually looks different and isint just a cheap reskin or repaint.

    I'm liking these guest fighters, finally we're getting classic movie icons in a beat em up :)

    I actually wrote to Ocean many many years ago (90's) with a game idea for having a selection of movie characters in one fighter. Characters like Ripley, Predator, Snake Plissken, Robocop, Boba Fett etc...but I was told the rights issues would be impossible to overcome.

    So this is really cool, not sure about the Alien though. Personally, seeing as they already have Jason and now Leatherface, I would of thought the obvious choices would now be Ash, Pinhead, Michael Myers, Pumpkinhead, Pennywise, Candyman, Leprechaun and Chucky :D

    And bring back Freddy.
  20. Hellspawn28
    Guest fighters won't get skins. I think Ed said something that they would have to pay the license holders double the price. Leatherface is own by Lionsgate, Fox owns both Alien and Predator while Jason is in the hands of Paramount now.

    It is definitely not the final design, when KP1 was announced it showed early models as well. How much is it gonna change though is hard to tell. And don't expect anything soon, if it's anything like the first KP we will get a trailer about week before character release.
  22. Mike
    Some people are just never satisfied with ANYTHING. We got Alien which is so badass! But people will always cut the fun around the corners. Doesn't effect me one bit, but this is the honest truth. I can't wait to play as Alien! :D
  23. Perfect-Organism
    Is this really even licensed?  I mean wasn't there a game way back when called xenomorph that tried to imitate Aliens, without a license from 20th CF?

    Wait, really? I never heard of this. I gotta have a look at it.

    Are you talking about this one, Perfect Organism?



    Yes, I think so.  I vaguely recall seeing it in an arcade back in those days...

    As an Alien fan I feel cheated and insulted. why couldn't they just give us the original Alien: the one we all know and love? why give us this fan-fiction bullshit?

    Ask Ed Boon on Twitter.

    Seems like Predator fans got the better end of the deal. I mean.. the idea of a Tarkatan-Alien could've worked but the design seems to be quite off. Now I'm hearing rumors that this is just Baraka, re-labled as the Alien and given an Alien skin.. If that is the case... both sides do have every right to be pissed.
  25. predxeno
    I don't play Mortal Kombat but considering that this Alien design so closely matches a Tartaran, is it possible that this is just going to be a clone of another character already in the series rather than its own unique character?  I've played and seen games like Mortal Kombat before (Soul Calibur II, Godzilla: Unleashed) where new characters are just clones of old characters and most of their attacks are pretty much the same as their predecessors only with small, technical variations.
