Mortal Kombat 11: Old Skool vs New Skool Trailer
Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have revealed the latest trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, showing off the past and present versions of various characters fighting each other. Check it out in the player below!
In addition, the developer revealed the return of three fan favorite characters including:
• Liu Kang, the greatest of the Shaolin monks, was an orphan adopted and trained in the arts of combat by the Shaolin order. He was handpicked by Raiden to be Earthrealm’s Mortal Kombat champion and chief defender.
• Kung Lao joined the Shaolin monks in a quest to become Earthrealm’s new Mortal Kombat champion. Reckless and rebellious, but courageous and indomitable, Kung Lao fights to prove worthy of his glorious ancestors.
• Major Jackson “Jax” Briggs was a decorated veteran of the Special Forces whose life changed forever when he fought in the Mortal Kombat tournament. His duty was now clear—he would defend Earthrealm against Outworld and the Netherrealm.
In the next evolution of the franchise, Mortal Kombat 11 introduces a new Custom Character Variations, giving you unprecedented control to customize the fighters and make them your own. The new graphics engine showcasing every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment, brings you so close to the fight you can feel it. And featuring a roster of new and returning Klassic Fighters, Mortal Kombat’s best in class cinematic story mode continues the epic saga over 25 years in the making.
The last game in the series, Mortal Kombat X, was released in 2015 to critical acclaim and high sales. The game even won Best Fighting Game at The Game Awards 2015, but the series has remained dormant since then.
The Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios game will arrive on April 23, 2019, on the Nintendo Switch, PS4, PC, and Xbox One. You can pre-order the game to receive access to the beta, available March 28, as well as the in-game, playable character Shao Kahn.
