After a premiere on iOS around a month ago, Mortal Kombat X’s X-Ray shots and colourful fatalities are now available on Android via the Google Play Store. This comes about a month after the game’s debut on iOS.
Mortal Kombat X for Android demands at least 1 GB of RAM and a minimum of 1.5 GB of available storage space.
The mobile version of NetherRealm’s bloody fighting game offers many of the same components as the PC and console versions of the title, but shrunk down for mobile and equipped with gesture controllers instead of traditional controls.
According to the description of the game, “Bring the power of next-gen gaming to your mobile and tablet device with this graphically innovative fighting and card collecting game,” and “Bring the power of next-gen gaming to your mobile and tablet device.”
“Build yourself an unbeatable squad of Mortal Kombat fighters and compete in the most prestigious fighting tournament in the history of the world.”
Each player will begin at the bottom of a series of challenge towers and work their way up, selecting tag team squads of three to compete against other groups along the way. In addition, gamers may take their tag teams online to compete against the tag teams of other players in the Faction Wars.
A card system is used in the mobile version of Mortal Kombat X, just like it was used in the mobile version of NetherRealm’s Injustice: Gods Among Us. Players have the opportunity to unlock new versions of classic fighters as well as items that can be used during matches, such as a poison knife.
Play the game to earn exclusive rewards for the console version of Mortal Kombat X, including extremely rare characters such as Klassic Kitana and Injustice Scorpion, according to the description on the Play store.
“Play the game and unlock exclusive rewards for the console version of Mortal Kombat X.” When you play the console version, you will unlock rewards in the mobile version as well.
Microtransactions are present throughout the free-to-play mobile version of Mortal Kombat X because the game is not paid for. The game’s “mature” rating should prevent young minors from playing it and using their parents’ checking and credit accounts to make in-app purchases, which require real money.
It’s possible that those in-app purchases will end up being pretty pricey. According to estimates provided by Pocketgamer, the amount of money required to unlock all of the game’s characters, including unusual variants of Kombatants like Stunt Double Johnny Cage, would be approximately $300.
To purchase the base versions of each character, players will have to spend about $70. That’s $10 more than the console version of the game, although even the core version of the game requires a season pass to unlock all of its Kombatants.
