Warner Bros has today announced Mortal Kombat X for both current and previous generation platforms. The announcement came via a trailer which features a typically brutal battle between Scorpion and Sub-Zero in an atmospheric forest. The trailer shows the return of X-Ray attacks from the 2011 iteration of the game. Players can also interact with the environment, for example pulling branches off trees to use as weapons.

The official description of the game reads:

Fueled by next-gen technology, Mortal Kombat X combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with all new gameplay to deliver the most brutal Kombat experience ever. For the first time ever, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. And with a new fully-connected gameplay experience, players are launched into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy.

Nintendo has announced a new peripheral for the Wii U – the Gamecube controller adapter. The adapter will allow players to plug in up to four Gamecube  controllers into the Wii U. Presumably Nintendo will also be producing new Gamecube controllers if the Super Smash Bros. logo embossed controller shown above is anything to go by.

The revelation of this desirable peripheral came at the end of a new trailer for the Super Smash Bros. invitational event to be held live at E3. This will come as great news to those who prefer the classic control scheme for Nintendo’s fighting series. It also opens up the possibility of Gamecube games coming to Wii U’s Virtual Console.
