Since the events of Mortal Kombat X, Raiden is no longer Earth’s protector and just might become the most dangerous opponent our colorful cast of fighters has ever faced. The reveal trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 pits Raiden against MK poster child Scorpion. The two warriors fight to the beat of “Immortal” by 21 Savage. From this battle we get hints at potential new combo moves in a fight system that combines the new with the classic.
As with any good fighting game, a big selling point is the character roster. I hope to see the return of breakout characters from MKX like Cassie Cage, Erron Black, and D’Vorah. These new characters were a great surprise in the last game and I hope to see more new characters in MK 11. MKX also featured iconic horror characters like Jason Voorhees, Alien, and Predator. I don’t know who they will choose as bonus characters for this game but Pennywise would work and Spawn might be a good pick if timed with the movie.
Mortal Kombat 11 will launch globally on April 23 with a community reveal event on January 17.
Players can pre-order Mortal Kombat 11 to access beta content now.
