It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to call Mortal Kombat 11 one of the most hotly anticipated releases of the year, and with just a few days to go till its launch, the excitement surrounding it is reaching a fever pitch. To crank that excitement up even more, NetherRealm Studios have released a launch trailer for the game, which is about as bloody brilliant as you’d expect it to be.
Best of all is the fact that it uses the original soundtrack from the movie, which any fan of the series will be giddily jumping with joy listening to. The trailer itself is characteristically bombastic, and there’s a lot to gawk at, from character interactions to setup for the narrative to some gameplay scenes, and more. Take a look below.
Developers NetherRealm Studios are promising that Mortal Kombat 11 is “the biggest story mode” they’ve ever done, so the game has a lot to live up to. It launches on April 23 for the PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. The game finally received its first Switch gameplay trailer, which is worth checking out if you’re interested in getting that version. Meanwhile, all those who’ve pre-ordered will receive Shao Kahn as an exclusive character- take a look at him in action through here.
