Netherrealm designer spoke about the creation of Omni-Men for Mortal Kombat 1

A few days later, the first guest character will appear in the brutal fighting game Mortal Kombat 1. The upcoming addition to the game will add to Roster Omni-Men fighters from the animated series and comic book "Invulnerable". As the Netherrealm studios managed to realize the image of such a powerful character was told by one of the leading designers Nick Nicstro, who worked on the Mortal Kombat series for more than 10 years.

As Nick Nicasto notes, Omni-Men for Netherrealm was far from the first guest character, but this does not mean that the developers are approaching this dismissive. On the contrary, the team sets itself a difficult task – to give the players a unique game character, while preserving his recognizable image in external design and fighting mechanics.

Netherrealm included many fans of the Omni-Men version from the animated series "Invulnerable", Therefore, the developers decided to recreate in the game all his movements and techniques that were in the original show.

For the most part, all the special techniques that we created for Omni-Men in Mortal Kombat 1 are associated with what we saw in the series, up to subtle nuances. In the process of development, we collected tons of links to movements, poses, fx and sounds to use them as a basis for the formation. After that, we went to the engine capture studio, where with great attention we took place to convey movements, which in some cases exactly correspond to the existing references.

From the point of view of the gameplay omni -men is a powerful character, which is based on speed and strength. That is why its mechanics are built around a special wilt rack. From this pose, he can carry out four unique attacks, each of which serves a certain purpose. In addition, in the Viltrumist rack, Omni-Men avoids shells, practically not paying attention to them, which makes him strong in matches, where opponents rely on shells.

Omni-Men will be available at Mortal Kombat 1 since November 9 as part of the early access period for all Kombat Pack owners, after which it will be available to the general public on November 16.
