‘Mortal Kombat X’ mobile game is coming to Android store tomorrow


By GR staff

NetherRealm announces that the long wait for ‘Mortal Kombat X’ on Android is almost over. The free card collector game will arrive on Android phones and tablets tomorrow.


It’s no secret that Mortal Kombat X got off to a good start in the sales charts. The console version for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is the best-selling game in the series. Corn MK Fans who own an iPad or iPhone probably know that the mobile version of the title is no slouch, either.

NetherRealm Studios’ free map collection version of Mortal Kombat X released on iOS six days before the main console game, and it’s been at or near the peak of App Store sales almost every day since. The only thing that has kept the app from completely dominating mobiles is the lack of an Android version, but that ends tomorrow. NetherRealm announced during its MK livestream today that the Android version is finally complete and will be released on Tuesday. In fact, some might be able to download it right now.

For those who do not know the mobile version, Mortal Kombat X on tablets and smartphones is very similar to a previous version of NetherRealm on mobile, Injustice: Gods Among Us. The game allows players to collect their favorite fighters as digital collectible cards, and then upgrade their characters’ strengths and abilities with additional support cards. Players can form a team of three different fighters and then battle each other in a traditional ladder-style mode, or fight other players online in a mode called Faction Wars, a feature similar to the console version.

But truth be told, Android gamers haven’t missed out on much when it comes to multiplayer, as Faction Wars has suffered from connection issues since the title’s release. Things seem to have stabilized recently, but NetherRealm said the popularity of the app caught them off guard, so hopefully they’re better prepared for the Android release.

The gameplay is much simpler than the console title, as the player only needs to repeatedly tap or swipe across the screen to trigger a variety of combos. There are some fatalities in the game, but only after certain battles in the main turn mode. The mobile version doesn’t quite hold the candle under the highly rated console title, but it’s still a great way to get a MK repair on the go.

At the very least, Android users will want to note that playing the mobile game will unlock certain skins and other rewards in the console title, and the mobile version will also give the player exclusive content if they have played on PlayStation 4 before. or Xbox One.

Mortal Kombat X is out now on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and iOS and releases tomorrow on Android. The game will be released for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 in June.
