Goro indeed lives. Not only is the Shokan Prince back in Mortal Kombat X, he is playable as a main roster member for the first time in 8 years! AND, he can perform Fatalities and Brutalities, and have them performed on him! In the last article, I asked why anybody would not have pre-ordered Mortal Kombat X by now…watch this massive Twitch stream presented by Warner Bros. Games and Amazon Games, embedded below, and you’ll see why getting Goro for free is truly reason enough.
As for his variations, Kuatan Warrior adds the ability to Ground Pound (classic Goro) and Chest Charge, which is essentially a rush down throw that allows a juggle opportunity. Tigrar Fury calls upon the dragon blood in Goro as he gains the Flame Ball and Fire Breath. He can also shoot the former at the ground to bounce the opponent up for a juggle…Goro likes to juggle (heads), and you’d assume so having four arms! Lastly, there’s Dragon Fangs, which alters a couple of his specials to incorporate more damaging blades on his gauntlets: his Punch Walk turns into more of a punch slice and dice, and his command grapple, where he beats your heads like a drum, turns into a merciless barrage of stabs.
9 days kombatants. Mortal Kombat X will soon be upon us, for the Xbox One, PlayStation 4 and PC.
