[Original] A listing on Amazon UK has prematurely outed the existence of Mortal Kombat X ahead of the expected official reveal by developer NetherRealm Studios next week at June's gaming expo in Los Angeles.
The store listing has since been removed, but not before MP1st managed to grab a screenshot. The description indicates a 2015 release for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4, PS3, and PC.
This isn't the first bit of evidence we've received regarding a new entry in the gory and gruesome fighting franchise, as a poster was leaked—teasing an E3 reveal—just last week.
