NetherRealm studios will be holding another Mortal Kombat X stream this week and while we don't know too many details yet, Ed Boon did confirm that we will be able to finish our opponents in style. It seems that the next stream is going to be "brutal".
This is just speculation on my part but I think its all but confirmed at this point that Brutalities, a finishing move introduced in the home versions of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 may be returning in Mortal Kombat X.
The other bit of evidence which may have confirmed their inclusion was back at the beginning of the month, in the new trailer, there was a statistic in the online feature that said "Brutalities performed"
For those unfamiliar with Brutalities, basically you had to enter this ridiculous combination to pull it off. It wasnt something as simple as a back back forward HP like with fatalities, no this was a seemingly random combination to trigger it. For instance, this was Reptile's Brutality (HP, BL, HK, HK, BL, HP, LP, LK, LK, BL, LP) and this was Sonya's (HP, LK, BL, HP, LK, BL, HP, LP, BL, HK, LK). Yeah, try remembering those. Entering the combination would make you pull off a quick combination of attacks which would cause your opponent to explode into a million pieces.
No word yet on how, if at all, Brutalities will work in Mortal Kombat X but I am very interested in seeing how they turn out. If they are in that is.
The stream will be held on this Thursday on NetherRealms official Twitch stream at 3PM CT.
