Seems like just about every major title these days has them.
Although it does stand to reason that the fighting genre would benefit greatly from microtransactions; extra outfits, arenas, characters, etc.
NetherRealm Studios marketing boss Brian Goodman told IGN that while they're not ready to discuss microtransactions, it's definitely implied that they will exist for the upcoming Mortal Kombat entry.
"We are not releasing any details on that yet. Nothing to say about microtransactions yet."
There's a decent chance the team might use them in conjunction with the Krypt feature but really, there's no way to tell just yet. Most gamers have voiced their dislike of microtransactions but they remain a big part of the industry…because people keep buying them, of course.
Mortal Kombat X is scheduled to release on April 14.
