So, it looks as though Ermac is the latest classic character to join the Mortal Kombat X roster. Who’s Ermac you say? Well, he started out as one of the lesser-known color-swapped ninja characters in that grand Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile tradition. Ermac was the red one, and was actually added to the series as a joke after fans misunderstood an error message in the original arcade game, thinking Ermac (an abbreviation of “Error Macro”) was the name of a secret character.
Well, it seems as though Ermac has undergone a pretty major makeover – he fights Sub-Zero in his debut trailer, and the two certainly don’t look like clones any more. He still has his telekinetic powers though, and uses them to inflict a pretty nasty Fatality on poor ol’ frosty pants. Here’s hoping all seven fun fruit flavors of Mortal Kombat ninjas show up in Mortal Kombat X – if I can play as Ermac, I’d better be able to play as Rain and Noob Saibot too.
