New MKX Kombat Pack 2 Trailer

Netherrealm Studios just put out the latest trailer for the upcoming second Kombat Pack for Mortal Kombat X, giving punters their first look at new additions Bo Rai Cho, Triborg, Leatherface and Alien. Also featured for the first time was the return of a classic Mortal Kombat staple; The Pit. Check out the trailer below.

In further news, Warner Bros. let slip some of the extra content to be expected in KP2: in addition to an all-new Apocalypse pack containing Takeda, D’Vorah and Erron Black, the bundle will also include access to Goro, the Kold War skin pack, and the Brazil skin pack, all of which have already been released as standalone DLC. Frustratingly, WB hasn’t said whether punters that have already bought these particular items can expect any special treatment, but we can hope that they’ll be looked after.

FF7 Remake Gameplay Footage From PSX

Turns out I woke up late and missed the first gameplay footage of Square Enix’ Final Fantasy VII Remake.

First of all, HOLY HELL it’s one pretty looking game.

Second of all, I’m sort of thankful they’ve decided to ditch the old gameplay for a more real-time FFXV- style game engine. It’s gonna be interesting seeing all the old locales remade to fit the new game. Barret’s revamped design looks badass, even Biggs, Wedge and Jessie look great. Even with the new gameplay direction, though, there’s still plenty there to cash in on the nostalgia FF7 generates.
