Created by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, the Mortal Kombat X trailer is currently being developed for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3 and PC. It is set to be available sometime in 2015. Two new characters were featured in the trailer: a female fighter with bugs swarming around her and a large brute with a small girl riding on her shoulders.
