The first trailer for the game is completely cinematic, but it tells us quite a bit about its story, and more importantly, it confirms its release date.
Mortal Kombat 1 is both a continuation of the last game and a reboot of the sagajust as it happened with Mortal Kombat 9 in 2011: Liu Kang has taken Raiden’s place as Earth’s protector god, and in the trailer he shares a message of unity and hope, followed shortly by a bloodthirsty Shang Tsung seeking to break this peace, which leads us to the most loved among fans of Mortal Kombat: blood, brutality and gore in extreme amounts.
