As sure as day follows night, a new Mortal Kombat game was always on the cards. Mortal Kombat 11 was announced last night at the Game Awards, showcasing the next evolution of this ultra-violent fighting franchise.

Due to arrive on April 23rd, 2019, Mortal Kombat 11 is a direct continuation of the series’ long-running and convoluted story. The big change that NetherRealm Studios’ is keen to shout about is the new Customer Character Variation System, allowing players to have total control over building their very own fights.

In the MK11 reveal trailer we see Dark Raiden and Scorpion face off in a bloody battle, which as far as fighting rosters go doesn’t really get much more iconic.

“It’s exciting to finally announce Mortal Kombat 11 and showcase what the team has been working on,” said Ed Boon, creative director, NetherRealm Studios. “Our Custom Character Variation System opens up an infinite amount of options for players to personalize their favorite fighters. We can’t wait until January when we’ll be showing more of the game.”

“By giving players more creative control, Mortal Kombat 11 is a testament to why this iconic franchise is so strong and increasingly relevant after more than 25 years,” said David Haddad, President, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “This game showcases NetherRealm Studios’ extensive talent to innovate and create epic experiences for the Mortal Kombat fans and new players alike.”

Mortal Kombat 11 is out on April 23, 2019, for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and, yes, PC!

It's where you realize that you clap much faster to old school MORTAL KOMBAT!!! and not that crap which was shown on awards. Seriously, what a wtf generation. Both versions are good but original always takes the cake.

Trailer was good, It's MK after all. But what the hell was with the music?
The dude sounds like he's half asleep and is forced to sing, if you can call it singing. I don't understand how people find this kind of rap interesting in any way whatsoever. It's just mumbling with a beat.

This is definitely not mumble rap even I can here words, but it might be a case of just bad rapping/bad song.

Whatever it is, it's bad and doesn't fit MK in the slightest... It's probably the devs going "Hello, children! Look at this hip and cool thing!" xD

I don't mind it, it's better than those god-awful slow covers they put on every game trailer for a 5-year period

I feel inclined to say that I'd prefer the Spongebob Squarepants themesong to this. Personal tastes and all that. Don't need to listen to (c)rap to feel "cool", you know xD


In reality it just needs a bangin tune. Dubstep would work, so would something in the metal variety. Just not...whatever this is...

This "music" is terrible... Just read the youtube comments, 90% of them, if not more, are about the poor choice of (c)rap for this trailer... xD


Seriously.. why would you mention a Glock 19 in an "original song" for this Mortal Kombat trailer???

I have no idea why anyone would pay someone for this, let alone have it made for this particular trailer... I really hope the game won't have this sort of "music". Otherwise modders will have a lot of work to do to make the game good again xD
