The Fatalities are better. More blood and more graphics.
Characters have personalities now. No more dry talking, they have feelings and have more dialog.
Two Word: KRYPT BIGGER. It is 3D and you are able to walk around.
The story mode is longer and better. (Probably because the characters have personalities)
Can play previous boss character (Shao Khan) if you pre-order.
Tired of someone using their X-Ray in every round? Well, say goodbye to X-Ray and hello to “Fatal Blows”. You can use fatal blows ONCE per fight and only when your life is at 30%.
New higher boss is a…. female.
Ronda Rousey plays Sonya.
There are new characters and some old characters make a return. (Yes, even Liu Kang)
Sub-Zero and Scorpion are besties! Ok, maybe not besties but they are not at each other’s throats anymore. (Reality it was Noob ‘Old Sub-Zero’ and Scorpion battling it out. Younger brother Sub-Zero and Scorpion are cool now.)
