Seven fighters from our world, Earthrealm, and the parallel world known as Outworld came together to participate in Mortal Kombat. Liu Kang, the hero of Earthrealm, defeated Shang Tsung and was crowned champion. But Shao Kahn, tyrannical ruler of Outworld, craved control of all worlds. Shao Kahn was defeated and Earthrealm saved. But Outworld was without a ruler and the civil war began …

Raiden explains that the dagger that Shirai Ryu had been protecting is one of the seven, the Kamidogu. Each dagger acts as a vessel, each filled with chaotic and evil blood magic. If the seven come together, then Shinnok’s Amulet, an artifact that traps the evil Old God, can be restored. Raiden had scattered the daggers across Earthrealm and Outworld, entrusting each to a veteran champion.

But as events begin to spin more and more out of control in both Earthrealm and Outworld, the daggers are slowly getting closer and closer. Kotal Kahn, the deadly but benevolent ruler of Outworld since Shao Kahn’s defeat, is engaged in a war against the half-human, half-dragon Shokan warriors. As the Red Dragon Clan helps the Shokan and Kotal Kahn reluctantly accepts the help of the Black Dragon Clan, the conflict ends in Kotal Kahn’s favor. But Cassie Cage and Jaqui Briggs are captured by the Red Dragon Clan. Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade are caught between helping Kotal Kahn and rescuing the two girls.

Soon, everyone involved travels to the same place: the island of Shang Tsung. Despite their best efforts, they are defeated by the warrior Reiko, some killed and some captured. Tied up, the champions are helpless as they stare at the mastermind behind the recovery of the daggers, the capture of Cassie and Jaqui, and the deployment of the Red Dragon Clan – the Cleric of Chaos, Havik. Manipulating events from the shadows, possessing countless warriors through the Kamidogu, and betraying his own acolytes, Havik reveals his true purpose for collecting the Kamidogu: the restoration of the Amulet of Shinnok.

With Havik in control of the Amulet and all hope seemingly lost, Scorpion appears from Netherrealm and rips Havik’s head off. The specter disappears as quickly as it appeared with Havik’s head in tow. Freed from the blood curse inflicted upon them, the remaining champions accept everything that has happened when Scorpion deposits Havik’s head in the Netherrealm. But as the heroes regroup and peace replaces the fury felt only moments before, deep within the Netherrealm, the necromancer Quan Chi begins to hatch a plan to resurrect Shinnok.

Mortal Kombat X does a fantastic job of using characters from across Mortal Kombat’s extensive history. A-Lister classics like Kano, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Mileena take the lead in the story with lesser-known characters like Jarek, Movado, Drahmin, and even Tasia seeing their share of the action. With lots of characters, locations and lines from the games in full screen, Mortal Kombat X is a carefully detailed adventure in one of the most beloved series in the fighting genre.
