Injustice 2 has a ton of impressive stages complete with opportunities for you to use your environment to punish your opponent. But knocking your opponent over the head with an alligator or running over them with the Batcycle still isn’t as rewarding as sending them flying to an entirely new portion of the stage. Unfortunately, that joy isn’t available in the Mortal Kombat series. Believe it or not, Mortal Kombat X almost featured stage transitions but they ultimately didn’t make their way to the final game. Back in 2015, a player asked Creative Director Ed Boon why Mortal Kombat X didn’t feature stage transitions. Boon revealed that the team had plans for such a feature but ultimately decided to nix the idea.
After seeing another Injustice title that features incredibly entertaining stage transitions that also offer a solid damage boost, it seems like now is the time to finally bring the same feature to the Mortal Kombat series.
