Mortal Kombat X announced, first trailer shown

Update: Warner Bros has now officially announced the platforms: PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360, and Xbox One.

After plenty of teasing, Mortal Kombat X has officially been officially announced. NetherRealm creative director Ed Boon gave the name this morning, followed promptly by the first trailer. Also, be sure to check out what we think the new Mortal Kombat game should include.

The trailer shows off one of the most classic MK match-ups possible: Sub-Zero vs Scorpion. We see both fighters brawling despite broken limbs, use of environmental weapons, and a particularly nasty-looking fatality. It's slated for release in 2015. Check out the trailer below.
