This story trailer is pretty much everything you want out of Mortal Kombat. It’s over the top, poorly acted, and makes absolutely no sense whatsoever. I’m pretty much at full Krieger right now.
Joking aside, we are introduced to a few new fighters, or at least their names, although we’re sure that between now and April 10, they’ll get their own trailers. What’s really interesting here is seeing the old crew. Like, for example, Scorpion, who appears to no longer have a skull for a face. That may be a function of the plot: The game apparently skips around in time because, you know, the backstory of the Mortal Kombat games isn’t convoluted enough, so we might meet Scorpion before he lost a face-off.
Oh, and there’s also, naturally, a fatality:
We’ll see what the rest of the cast has to offer in April.
