Co-creator and Creative Director Ed Boon just <a href="http://twitter.com/noobde/status/473449233350406144">tweeted the announcement</a> that the next game's title is <a href="http://www.trmk.org/games/mortal_kombat_x/">Mortal Kombat X</a>.

<center><blockquote class="twitter-tweet" lang="en"><p>The name of the game is "Mortal Kombat X"</p>— Ed Boon (@noobde) <a href="https://twitter.com/noobde/statuses/473449233350406144">June 2, 2014</a></blockquote>

If we go along with <a href="http://www.trmk.org/news/30957/mortal_kombat_x_listed_by_amazon_uk_with_2015_release_date.html">yesterday's Amazon leak</a> it would imply that the game will be available on <b>PlayStation 3</b>, <b>PlayStation 4</b>, <b>Xbox 360</b>, <b>Xbox One</b> and <b>Windows PC</b>. But we've not yet received a press release confirming this.

And as promised, Ed had more. Here's the Announcement Trailer, which includes an original song "Can't Be Stopped" by <a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wiz_Khalifa">Wiz_Khalifa</a> and reveal's the game's release date of 2015.

This isn't gameplay yet, but it looks fairly close to in-engine graphics so it may give you a good idea what is in store. It's also possible it's teasing usable weapons in the stage, hopefully they take the old game's weapon systems with some Injustice style refinements.

There are many questions that remain.

<b>1.</b> Is the "X" pronounced as "Ten" or "Ecks"? I'm going with "Ecks" since it'd be silly to call this "Mortal Kombat Ten" after the last game was simply "Mortal Kombat". <a href="http://twitter.com/lover_of_tacos/status/473480913012002816">Confirmed via Twitter, it's "Ecks"</a>.

<b>2.</b> Why is Sub-Zero not a cyborg? He appears to have some cyborg features though, with the eyes glowing like that. Time will tell, we have a long way until 2015 and a lot of information yet to be revealed.

<b>3.</b> How much of that trailer is in-game assets? It looks glorious and hopefully indicative of what the game looks like but it's <a href="http://twitter.com/DgitalDimension/status/473476927958024192">all CG and not gameplay at all</a> according to <a href="http://www.digitaldimension.com/portfolio-items/mortal-kombat-x/"> Digital Dimension the company who did the CG work for the trailer</a>.

<b>4.</b> Will there actually be stage intractable weapons? Looks possible, time will tell on how much of that is part of the game.

Nice! Finally a confirmation. Was hoping something more than that though like a trailer, hopefully we get one later today.

LOL, he retweeted a guy saying he can't wait any longer after the "link coming" tweet. Boon's seriously teasing us too hard.

I wonder if the trailer will show Scorpion beating the crap out of Sub-Zero again, like most MK9 media did.
EDIT: My theory was correct!

As per usual, the under-dog gets killed by the NRS favorite, but SUB-ZERO is pretty much konfirmed, so I could give less than a shit if Scorpion wins again (as usual).

It's been a while since I've been excited for a game. Although, I'm not surprised to see Subz get shat on by Scorpion again, lel. So hype.

I was watching it at work, with no sound, Scorpion obviously says GET OVER HERE, correct? And is it the same soundbyte used for the last 10 years, or is it re-recorded?

AND THANK GOD FOR HUMAN SUB-ZERO!!!

Seriously though, love the outfits for both, makes them look more sinister and assassin like. Basically more Ninja overall.

Loving the design choices overall, Scorpion's double spear being an example can't wait to see more.

He says it when the MK logo shatters into an X like pattern. Not sure how to make out the difference, but it does sound like it used to in the earlier games.

I wonder seeing Scorpion and Sub Zero use their surroundings (Scorp swinging from the branch, and Subz using the branch) means we'll get to use our surroundings in this game like it was in injustice... im thinking so.
