Mortal Kombat X will see the return of a long lost "'-ality" finishing move, though exactly which one will be making a return hasn't been revealed.
“For those who are familiar with the Mortal Kombat, we’ve first had the Fatality and we added a Babality. We had the Friendship moves, Brutality moves and all of these crazy things over the years,” series creator Ed Boon told IGN. “We are going to be reinstating an ‘Ality’ from a previous game into Mortal Kombat X. And I can’t wait to be able to talk about it but at the moment I can’t.”
2011's Mortal Kombat reboot included Fatalities (particularly violent, character-specific finishing moves), stage-specific Pit Fatalities, and Babalities (pictured above), in which the winner turns the loser into a baby. Other -alities seen in earlier Mortal Kombat games include Brutalities, which see the winner beating the loser to a pulp with a long series of blows, Animalities, in which the victor turns into an animal to maul their opponent, and Friendship, comically non-violent peace offerings.
Brutalities seem like the most likely finisher to be making a comeback, as they were in development for 2011's Mortal Kombat but couldn't be finished in time.
Mortal Kombat X was announced earlier this year, after a progressively less cryptic countdown on Twitter by Boon. It's being developed for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 3, and PC, and is planned for a 2015 release.
