Mortal Kombat X
The fatalities in this game sound like goo, apparently?!
Mortal Kombat X has some horrifying fatalities, I think we can all agree there, but the sound effects behind them seem to be just as grizzly! NetherRealm, the developer of the game, held a LIVE broadcast which was aptly named “Kombatcast”. This broadcast shed light on some new information about the game, as well as a look behind the scenes of the much anticipated fighting game.
In the video, which you can watch below, you can see exactly what went into the foley work (the process of recording sound effects). NetherRealm appear to be using green goo and a toilet plunger in the video, to aid those grim fatality scenes. Other sound effects include destroying nuts and vegetables with a hammer. These guys clearly know no bounds!
NetherRealm also discusses how it created the game’s music and other improvements it’s introducing to Mortal Kombat X, so the video is definitely worth watching if you’re a fan of the series. If you’re an avid fan of the series then this video is definitely something you should watch… Or just if you’re a fan of smashing food with hammers and messing about with slime!
The game is set to release on 14th April 2015 for the PS4, Xbox One and PC, and you can watch the sound effects video HERE.
