Mortal Kombat X probably has the strongest cast of brand new characters in any Mortal Kombat game. Instead of just a couple good ones, nearly the entire new cast is excellent. Netherrealm took a huge risk by making a new generation of current characters as they could feel exactly the same and stale. Cassie is a mix between Sonya and Johnny Cage, but it actually makes sense. Instead of being a cheap rip-off she feels like an evolution over those two. Her personality is fantastic, she’s sexy, and she’s a great character to fight with. She is probably one of my favorite new character in the entire series.
Another amazing character. D’Vorah is a completely new species for the series as she’s an insect type character. Her voice acting and phenomonal and her she is just cutthroat and ruthless in the game. All she cares about is her own gain and you wind up loving her and hating her at the same time. Her fighting style is awesome with her pincer arms that come out of her back and she has quick jabbing combos that are good for mid-range.
Erron is another wildly new character. He’s a cowboy which can seem out of place in the MK universe but he fits right in as a rogue outlaw type character that only cares about himself. He’s ruthless, deadly, and just doesn’t give a shit at all. His fighting style is all about quick close to mid-range attacks and he’s deadly with his pistols. He also has one awesome X-Ray move.
MK was never successful with the dual fighters in the past. Noob-Smoke didn’t quite work out like everyone thought, so Ferra/Tor was a tough call. They are actually one of my top 5 most favorite new characters to come to MK. They’re personalities are great (mainly Ferra who is a blast to listen to) and they’re fighting style is so unique and stands out from the rest of the entire MK cast.
