Mortal Kombat 11 Creator Teases Babalities’ Return (VIDEO)
NetherRealm Studios is seemingly throwing everything, including the kitchen sink, into their latest fighting title Mortal Kombat 11. The game currently sports a stunning roster of popular fighters, a lovely cinematic story, as well as the main attraction of exceedingly gory Fatalities. However, it looks like we may also be able to expect a more innocent version of the violent finishing move in the form of Babalities.
Taking to Twitter (as he tends to do), NetherRealm Creative Director Ed Boon engaged in a bit of teasing regarding Mortal Kombat 11. Through the guise of an animated baby Fred Flintstone as well as an accompanying “Konfirmation,” Boon’s post also featured a direct reference to Babalities, suggesting the klassic infant-transformation move may be making its return.

Since early on in the series, Babalities have presented an adorable spin on the end-match Fatality, where players transform their foe into a baby. Having last appeared in Mortal Kombat 2011, the hilarious move would almost surely be welcomed back with fans, especially considering how inspired each one has been in the past. However as this addition has yet to be officially confirmed, it’s still at least possible Ed Boon might be throwing fans through a loop. Waiting seems to be the only way to know for sure.
Mortal Kombat 11 releases for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One on April 23rd. A pre-order beta is scheduled to go live starting March 27th.
