With only a few days to go before it’s official release, Nether Realms has released both a launch trailer for Mortal Kombat XI and a trailer featuring Shao Khan, the master of Outworld and Mortal Kombat XI’s pre-order exclusive character. The launch trailer gives us another overview of the title’s story mode, where the “Keeper of Time” Kronika aims to reset time to fix all of Raiden’s meddling in Mortal Kombat IX and X. Aside from giving us a good idea of the full roster in the game, there’s also a showdown between Scorpion and Sub Zero and the Cyber Initiative ninja, as well as a meeting between Kuai Liang (current Sub-Zero) and Bi-Han (original Sub-Zero and current Noob Saibot). And all of the action is set to a remixed version of the classic “Techno Syndrome” theme most consistently associated with Mortal Kombat.
They also released a trailer for Shao Kahn to show off his techniques. Alternating between his signature hammer and a spear weapon, Kahn tears through Raiden, Liu Kang, and Kotal Kahn before delivering a pounding fatality to his mortal enemy Raiden.
Mortal Kombat XI is available for PlayStation 4, PC, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on April 23rd.
