NetherRealm has unveiled the first gore-drenched gameplay footage of its upcoming fighter Mortal Kombat 11, which launches on Xbox One, PS4, Switch, and PC later this year.
Mortal Kombat 11’s first proper airing occurred during a relatively brisk reveal event, held in Los Angeles and livestreamed across the internet earlier today. Alongside a whole bunch of typically gruesome gameplay (which has now been released as a separate video, below), it offered glimpses at a handful of new features for the long-running fighting series, plus several other miscellaneous unveilings.
Much of the event’s run-time was spent shining a light on Mortal Kombat 11’s character roster. Joining the iconic likes of Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, and Sonya Blade (who, it was announced, will be voiced by WWE fighter Ronda Rousey), are new faces – including time-controlling Geras – and a few fan-favourites that haven’t been seen in a while. Mortal Kombat 2’s flesh-munching Baraka is back, for instance, as is Mortal Kombat 9’s blood-manipulating Skarlet.
