NetherRealm Studios, formerly known as Midway Games recently released a video explaining the new gruesome X-ray mode in Mortal Kombat. This mode shows off the bone crunching damage your opponent will experience during a fight.
IGN sat down with the crew at NetherRealm Studios to discuss the details around this violent action mode. The X-ray mode reveals bones crunching, muscles ripping and even organs exploding moves from various fatal contacts during the fight.
In order to craft this mode, the developers had to create custom organs, muscles and bones underneath each character. Each player will have a different X-ray move depending on fighting style and personality.
Some of the moves will actually make you cringe a bit, especially the neck snapping ones.
Check out the video below: (warning: video contains violent scenes not for the faint of heart)
The X-ray moves may be the next best thing since the introduction of “Fatalities.” The game is set to release April 19 across the Xbox 360 and PS3.
Fans of God of War will be happy to find out that the PS3 version of the game will have Kratos as an exclusive playable character.
