Square Enix Annual Report Talks Sales, Games, and 2015

Square Enix has released its end of year report, and with it, its annual earnings and information about how Square games are performing.

Kung Lao Returns in Mortal Kombat X

Kung Lao, a classic Mortal Kombat character, has been revealed as part of Mortal Kombat X’s roster, according Finnish magazine Pelaaja.

Test Your Might forum user AeroGrunt provided a translation in a post that includes images of a much older looking Kung Lao, and details about his various gameplay styles—Tempest, Buzz Saw and Hat Trick. Players can use Kung Lao’s hat as a shield spinning around him or throw it and call it back anytime the player wants.

Online features will play a larger role in Mortal Kombat X. Players will be able to choose from five factions–Lin Kuei, White Lotus, Brotherhood of Shadows, Special Force and Black Dragon–and earn battle points for the chosen faction. This will determine how a player’s in-game single player or multiplayer menus will look, among other things.
