UPDATE: Mortal Kombat X officially confirmed, first details & trailer inside

Mortal Kombat X is a thing, following extensive teasing from NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon. He's just confirmed it on Twitter.

UPDATE 3: The press release for the game has been sent out and with it some new details. The game will offer a new "fully-connected experience that launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy."
