Mortal Kombat: X-ray moves are disturbing

February 1, 2011

Mortal Kombat: X-ray moves are disturbingNetherRealm 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.

  6. The Future of Sega:

    Ha and I have Quan Chi as my avatar. :D Liu Kang owns!!!!!!!

  7. twilight:

    Ps3 RULEZ so wimpy.
    I can not wait for this game. They are going back to the oldschool Mortal Kombat. This game is looking great and Kratos being in this game is just icing on the cake.

  8. The Future of Sega:

    I’m currently listening to the Mortal Kombat Annihilation Soundtrack and getting ready to watch Mortal Kombat Conquest. :D

  9. The Future of Sega:

    Anyone who is a fan of the oldschool Mortal Kombat is an automatic friend of mine. :D I absolutely LOVED the old school Mortal Kombat!!! I bought all of the sundtracks, movies, magazines, memorized all the fatalities, brutalities, animalities, etc. Sorry guys I’m a HARDCORE Mortal Kombat nerd. ;)

  10. PS3 RULEZ890:

    some of us ain’t big fans of extrame gore and so you now I’ll happy watch gory films to prove I’m not wimpy but I’ll draw the line at binge drinking and drugs because only idiots do that sort of thing.

  11. PS3 RULEZ890:

    watched both films and I’ve still got fond memories of the Mortal Kombat Cartoon TV series and I have MK VS DC Universe.

    Does that make me your friend TFOS

  12. The Future of Sega:

    PS3 Rulez,

    Absolutely man! Absolutely. :D Oh btw for those interested in video game “appeal” read this article on

  13. ncaissie:

    I’ll watch it when I get home.

  14. The Future of Sega:

    Surf Ninjas=good movie. ;)

  15. The Future of Sega:

    I just hope they don’t ruin it like Soul Calibur 4 with excessive sex appeal. I enjoy fighting games to fight not to point my boner at the tv screen. Don’t get me wrong I’m all for that but hentaism has it’s place…in my bedroom, on the labtop, after midnight when everyone is alseep. ;)

    Hey I asked you guys to check out Swollen Members. They’re NOT heavy metal for fuck’s sake. Just DO it…NOW lol.

    Goodnight ladies and gents. :D it’s 8:52am and I have yet to go to sleep. Sweet dreams…”We wiilll we wiillll ROOOOCK YOOOUUU!!!!”

  16. phranctoast:

    Who’s the ‘Sub-zero like’ female?

  17. zman901:

    that’s Frost and from that picture up there it looks like they upgraded here BOOOOOOOOOOOOOBS!!! lol but seriously aren’t they a bit too big i mean it will become a bit distrackting in a middle of a fight :P

  18. PS3 RULEZ890:

    hey TFOS have you thought about joining forces with me when I start making my own console?

  19. phranctoast:

    Thanks. I must of missed a couple of MK’s.

  20. CaptBirdman:

    “Who’s the ‘Sub-zero like’ female?”

    *Snatches Phranctoast’s gaming licence*

  21. Rhino:

    On a side note, the sequel to Demons Souls has be announced, and for those of you of the 360 persuasion, it will available for you as well.

  22. ncaissie:

    I don’t see any video.

  23. Rhino:

    If your talking about MK NC, then your out of luck, it’s been removed from here.

  24. dans303:

    ““Who’s the ‘Sub-zero like’ female?”

    *Snatches Phranctoast’s gaming licence*”

    LMAO! I couldn’t name you one character from MK. :)

  25. PS3 RULEZ890:

    Whens the game coming out and at what price? plus no one answered my question, what would Kratios inside look like?

  26. Godless:

    He’s made from slugs & snails & puppy dogs tails :^ )

  27. CaptBirdman:

    Danny, you’re kidding right?

    Sub-Zero, Frost (girl Phranc was asking about), Mileena, Reptile, Scorpion, Kintaro, Liu Kang, Goro, Raiden, Sheeva, Kung Lao, Smoke, Noob-Saibot, Johnny Cage, Stryker, Meat, Quan-Chi, Onaga, Shang Tsung, Shujinko, Ermac, Taven, Jax, Sonya Blade, Nightwolf, Khameleon, Daegon, Kano, Tanya, Baraka, Jade, Kitana, Chameleon, Cyrax, Kabal, Rain, Sektor, Fujin, Sindel, Shinnok, Sareena, Blaze, Bo’ Rai Cho, Drahmin, Li Mei, Hsu Hao, Kenshi, Mokap, Nitara, Moloch, Ahsrah, Darrius, Havik, Hotaru, Kobra, Kira, Motaro, and Shao fucking Khan.

    Yes that was from memory. 8)

  28. dans303:

    And I thought Raiden was from MGS. ;)

    It’s just tastes. I’ve never been a fan of this genre. You know more about what you like and I know more about what I like. Shao Khan does sound familiar though.

  29. CaptBirdman:

    You don’t like this?

  30. phranctoast:

    Lol. I looked her up. She’s from deadly alliance. That’s way after the franchise hit the shitter and people no longer cared.

    There’s a reason this next one is going back to MK2.

  31. CaptBirdman:

    Actually, MK was hugely popular, DA and moving forward.

    DCvsMK was rubbish…

  32. CaptBirdman:

    And technically, they aren’t going back to MKII because Stryker, Sindel, and Ermac are in this one. It’s more of a “reboot”

    And I use that term LOOSELY lol

  33. FahKinSuPah:

    I thought MK2 was one of the best. I prefer the old school 2D MK games.

  34. ncaissie:

    “DCvsMK was rubbish…”
    Hey that is the only one I liked!
    Just because of the DC part.

  35. phranctoast:

    I stopped caring at MK3. I got MK vs DC for a gift, but like most fighters I barely play it.

    MK2 for me was MK in it’s prime. It was the one I played in the arcades and on Genesis the most with friends.

  36. phranctoast:

    The new one, from what I read appears to be Raiden sending a message back to himself in the past, warning him of the impending apocalypse.

    kinda cool concept.

    The locations and it reminding me of my favorite MK game will likely make it a purchase. Of course like most fighting games, I think I’ll wait on it, because they see the bargain bin in under three months.

  37. Roca.:

    “I stopped caring at MK3″

    same here….the series was getting stupid.
    How many Sub-zeros do we really need? they were 3 of them by the time I stop caring.

  38. CaptBirdman:

    2 Roca.

    Bi Han (original) and Kuai (current). They are brothers.

    The 1st was killed by Scorpion, and the current Sub-Zero is seeking revenge. The 1st is now Noob Saibot.

  39. ncaissie:

    Wish I seen the video.
    I like how they do that on the CSI shows.
    I would buy it for that reason for sure.
    I’m not good at remembering the combos.

  40. phranctoast:

    New Infamous screens

    the new girl looks like a twilek.

  41. phranctoast:

    Worst new trends this generation.

    I know me and ncaissie banged heads about at least one of these.

  42. twilight:

    Ps3 Rulez,
    Game dates change but the last time I heard this game was due out was around March/April at the standard game price.
    Mortal Kombat is probably my favorite fighting game of all time.

  43. PS3 RULEZ890:

    Me want to know what Kratos Fatalities are gonig to look like?

  44. Roca.:

    Those Infamous 2 screens look good

    Sucker Punch said they’re aiming to beat Uncharted 2 as the king in graphics.

  45. PS3 RULEZ890:

    Why hasn’t TFOS replied to my offer of building a games console together?

  46. Roca.:

    it’s coming out same day as Socom 4..April 19

  47. ncaissie:

    LOL Yeah we can agree to disagree on the store stuff.

  48. ncaissie:

    “Me want to know what Kratos Fatalities are gonig to look like?”

  49. twilight:

    How are you doing? Did you get your cast off?

  50. ncaissie:

    yeah but it still kills. lol I can barely move my wrist still.

  51. twilight:

    Of course, it is not helping that there are so many games out that you want to play. Hope you get better soon.
    I am at the car shop now waiting for them to finish the repairs to my car. This is not a fun way to spend the day off. Hopefully, it want take too long so I can get home and enjoy the rest of the day. It is pretty cold here today. It is about 20 degrees outside here which is pretty cold for most Southern people.

  52. ncaissie:

    We are getting a big storm here.
    I can still play games when I have time.

  53. twilight:

    It is good that you can still play some games then Ncaissie.

  54. CaptBirdman:

    Feels pretty good in Los Angeles 8)

  55. phranctoast:

    Bionic Commando Rearmed 2 requires PSN connection (not for co-op, for DRM!)

    Capcom appears to be combating the sharing that happens with PSN games. Good for Capcom…bad for gamers.
    XBL doesn’t share the same fate, as they don’t allow sharing..

  56. Roca.:

    I’m not getting this game.. Capcom makes bad games with shitty DRM now, can they go any lower?

  57. FahKinSuPah:


    “Capcom makes bad games with shitty DRM now, can they go any lower?”

    Well you can just add that to the list of recent Capcom achievements, like pretty much ruining Devil May Cry and stealing games from small independent developers.

  58. ncaissie:

    To hell with Capcom anyway.

  59. Barnabe Jones:

    Yeah this new DMC is the straw that broke the camel’s back.

    RE5 and SFIV were good, but they’ve out a ton of shit also.

  60. ncaissie:

    So if you want to play BC2 without being distracted from the online offline popups you can’t do it? Stupid.
    That is what bugs me about being logged in for Netflix.

  61. Roca.:

    You can turn notifications off ncaissie.

    BC2′s issue is that you have to be online to play the game, which is a offline game. It by requiring you to logged in it means you won’t be able to share it with you daughter’s profile or console.

    this is a $15…can Capcom be so cheap?

  62. ncaissie:

    I don’t pay for many DD games anyway. I will buy a rare one. Wish I could get my money back for Hustle Kings. Which is why I want a disc.

  63. FahKinSuPah:

    I just beat Alan Wake.

    It was definately a great game, but like any other game it did have its faults. Not enough to prevent me from enjoying it though.

    The environments were amazing looking.

    Enemy types were definately repetetive though, but its understandable given the storyline behind it all.

    What I find hilarious is that Alan Wake is a friggin writer and he cant do any melee attacks, however he can shoot like a friggin life-long hunter, even though he never held a gun before the events that take place in the game. He even mentions that in game too.

  64. FahKinSuPah:

    ^ That would be like Kratos baking a cake. He just doesn’t have the experience for it.

    If the cake called for “the blood of his enemies” as an ingredient though, just maybe he could pull it off.

  65. FahKinSuPah:

    Fucking assholes!

    I’m playing the first DLC for Alan Wake now, The Signal, and at one point you get a cell phone, a Verizon VZ Navigator (you see it REALLY clearly) and the phone rings and you pick it up and the person on the other end says “Can you hear me? Can you hear me now?”

    friggin product placement lol

  66. The Future of Sega:

    PS3 Rulez860,

    Sure, we just need the funds for it ;) lol.

  67. The Future of Sega:

    It’s so cold over here :(…it’s like the Artic pole done shitted its ass out over here. Last night the tress and trash cans were blowing all over the place. ;) Global Warming is HAPPENING! lol.

  68. The Future of Sega:

    Lol sorry 890 ;)

  69. Barnabe Jones:

    This looks amazing! Project Dark, is now Dark Souls… and it’s basically Demon’s Souls 2.

    Honestly, I’ll be getting this over Skyrim. Skyrim looks great, but I’ll wait to Bethesda gets some patches together first ;)

  70. Barnabe Jones:

    ^GOTY contender for sure.

    Cad, if you buy some shitty Kinect game instead of this, you should be banned from Blorge indefinitely.

  71. Rhino:

    Woohoo….Just got off the phone from the insurance company, they’re going to just give me a cash settlement, so shopping spree here I come!!!!

  72. dans303:

    PS3 top of your list, Rhino?

  73. Rhino:

    Absobloodyfuckenlutely mate.

    Those fuckers ran off with $2,500AU worth of my PS3 and games.

    As soon as the cash hits my account, I’m off to replace it all.

    The wife has no say in the matter lol.

  74. Roca.:

    “The wife has no say in the matter lol”

    That’s how I keep things w/my gf..

  75. FahKinSuPah:

    I’d be the same way.

    For one it was Rhino’s PS3 and games that got stolen, not his GFs. When he gets that settlement from the Ins company his GF should have no say in how that money is spent.

  76. Roca.:

    and they were complaining about Heavenly Sword sales lmao. They’re probably wishing for similar sales by now.

    That’s what happen when you run your mouth too much..

  77. phranctoast:

    Thats a shame as it was a pretty good game. Probably didn’t even make enough to pay Andy Serkis.

  78. FahKinSuPah:

    I didn’t even really like the demo that much for enslaved.

  79. Barnabe Jones:

    I liked the demo, but I’m not paying more than $10 for a 6 hour game.

  80. ncaissie:

    “I liked the demo, but I’m not paying more than $10 for a 6 hour game.”

    Same here. I may pay $15-$20
