Mortal Kombat is a game that has been running for literal decades with the first one controversially released in 1992. Since then the companies behind the project have been improving every detail. Mortal Kombat has always been one of the bloodiest fighting games, Mortal Kombat X being outrageously bloody, and this newest character doesn’t change that.
Jason Voorhees, Tanya, Predator, and now Tremor. Tremor made his debut in Mortal Kombat: Special Forces, but has now made his way to becoming a fully playable character in the Mortal Kombat X DLC, available July 21st as part of the Kombat Pack, and sold sepately on July 28th. Tremor dons the usual ninja attire, similar to that of Scorpion, Subzero, and Reptile, and just as they wear their own colors, Tremor wears his, brown. Tremor is what we expect from his looks and name put together. He’s an agile ninja who is able to control the earth around him and this is found in different ways with his different stances.
Tremor’s brute strength is matched only by the strongest warriors. However, he is still very quick with his movements, and even quicker with his attacks. The trailer reveals how his different stances could be used to combat his different opponents, and these stances seem to rely on his strength, agility, and unique powers. The first stance revealed for Tremor shows his ability to throw large boulders, roll a spike rock along the ground (similar to Kung Lao’s hat), quake the earth (Like Jax), and summon a boulder that launches straight up and lands on the opponents head. The second stance shows Tremor covered in green earth and summoning green rocks/gems. This seems to be a more defensive stance as in the trailer he uses them to block attacks from Jax. In this stance he is also able to summon a boulder and leap from it, allowing him to get behind an enemy and attack while their defense is down. The final stance seems to be a combination of the two, however this time each rock, or boulder, is leaking magma from it which we can hope causes a short damage over time.
Overall, I think Tremor looks like an insane addition to the character line-up. He looks like he’ll be fun and easy to use, and he even is dressed for the part. Tremor is associated with the Black Dragons, Kano’s faction of thugs, and will be the 2nd playable Black Dragon in Mortal Kombat X. This is great because now Kano has a partner, and even better has a new face for this generation of Kombatants (players). If you haven’t seen the trailer, I recommend you do so, and you can find it here This trailer has me really asking what Mortal Kombat X has always been asking, “Who’s Next?”
