Mortal Kombat X fans have uncovered a secret Alien movie Easter Egg hidden amongst the new characters' brutalities. The same fans also discovered a hidden Jason related Easter Egg – it will all make sense very soon.
Mortal Kombat X has very cleverly tapped into a source of unbridled entertainment. The concept of pitting your favorite movie villains against your favorite Mortal Kombat fighters is, simply, genius.
The team were very quick to discover that this diversification was responsible for millions more players coming to play Mortal Kombat X. So, to keep these new fans happy, NetherRealm invested a lot of time researching their villains and nailing down the pop culture details that revolve around their chosen kombatants.
Case in point - they did a brilliant job with Predator for example; when you apply the Carl Weathers skin to Jax you will see this awesome Predator homage/Bromage sequence.
And check out this insanely cool Predator Easter Egg hidden within gun-toting Erron Black's arsenal. Check out the bullet - “You‘re one ugly mother f*****”
Back To That Other Alien
If, like me, you just love recreating the eternal battle between the Xenomorph and the Predator - NetherRealm have made sure to keep your battles film accurate. If in the unfortunate event of an Alien win (I am a Predator fan, if you hadn’t guessed) and the Alien performs the facehugger brutality - wherein it summons a facehugger egg from within the ground. Only when against the Predator does the chestburster become a 'Predalien.' The rest of the time it reveals a normal Alien.
But the big news today comes from this same brutality being performed against Jason Voorhees of Friday the 13th. If the same brutality is used against this murderous brute the chestburster that emerges from his chest is actually wearing Jason’s iconic hockey mask – creating what I like to call an 'Alison.'
As a huge Predator/Alien fan, I do honestly appreciate these little touches that NetherRealm have included. I am sure that within days another excellent gem of movie magic will be found within the realms of Mortal Kombat X. With super villains like Leatherface included I wouldn’t be surprised if there are a few hidden Eggs just itching to be found.
