With Reptile’s return to Mortal Kombat only a few days behind us, fans have been patiently awaiting the next character reveal on the upcoming Kombat Kast stream that just concluded just moments ago.
So, who exactly was revealed in today’s stream? None other than the collection of souls known as Ermac, whom the co-creator of the Mortal Kombat franchise, Ed Boon, has been hinting at using clues like pictures of the late and great comedian, Bernie Mac.
You can catch the entirety of the stream here, or you can simply check out a gameplay excerpt below. There’s also Ermac’s official gameplay reveal trailer which you can check out above.
Much like the rest of the characters in Mortal Kombat X, Ermac features three different variations, which are:
- Spectral – Enaables Ermac to fly and use unique aerial attacks.
- Mystic – Gains Tele-lift and Tele-push abilities.
- Master Of Souls – Ermac gain’s Soul Ball and the ability to disappear to avoid damage.
In addition to Ermac’s reveal, NetherRealm Studios developers also confirmed that fans can also look forward to alternative costumes. In fact, they alluded to the fact that we may already have seen some of them. The news should make fans extremely happy, especially to those who grew fond of the concept art of Ermac that has been making its way around the web ever since Mortal Kombat X was officially revealed.
Elsewhere, it also appears that the latest build for Mortal Kombat X that was showcased has some pretty interesting small details in the character select screen. Both fighters now seem to interact with one another before the loading screen, for example. Additionally, it seems that NetherRealm Studios has added an extra slot in the character selection screen, though that may just be for any DLC characters such as Goro.
Unfortunately for you Kitana and Reptile fans out there, NetherRealm Studios didn’t show any in-gameplay footage of either of them, but did mention that they will be showcased in an upcoming Kombat Kast stream which will take place in the upcoming month.

Mortal Kombat X is set to release on April 14 for the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms.
