Ed Boon, figurehead of Netherealm Studios and the father of the Mortal Kombat fighting game series, was invited to The Game Awards to present the award for the best sports/racing title of 2018. Of course, just before he was set to announce the nominees, a new trailer demonstrated more than just a backdrop of dead monks, a broken gate, and an Asian/Outworld motif to set the stage before pulling the camera back to reveal a fight of two of the more iconic characters
Mortal Kombat 11 isn’t afraid to shed a little blood in its cinematic reveal. Gallons of blood are spilled in a brief back and forth tussle between Raiden and Scorpion. At first glance, Raiden stands out from his usual blue-eyed appearance, bearing a pair of red eyes as dark as his blood that fans might recognize from his design in Mortal Kombat Deception and Armageddon. Just about everything short of an X-ray attack was teased in the CGI fight, which can hopefully be one mechanic to be dropped from Mortal Kombat X.
