It’s pretty crazy that we live in a world where everything and it’s mother has its own trailer. Once reserved for cinematic radness on the big screen, trailers now cover everything the Interweb touches (read: fucking everything) – from TV shows and web series, to albums and yes, video games. It’s almost pointless to even mention, but do we really need that much advanced notice and footage from a video game coming out in a year? That’s like, forever away. It seems pretty ridiculous, right?
Unless it’s Mortal Kombat X. Because WHOA.
Following the grim tone of Mortal Kombat: Legacy, MKX reminds us of just how far we’ve come since the good ol’ days of A, B, A, C, A, B, B (that original blood code will be embedded into my brain forever).
According to IGN, the game “launches players into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy. For the first time, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. Players step into an original story showcasing some of the game’s most prolific characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil and tie the tale together.”
Speaking of Scorpion and Sub-Zero, check out the two of them kicking the shit out of each other:
The trailer features an original track by Wiz Khalifa titled “Can’t Be Stopped.” So, uh, there’s that, too.
I’ve been trying hard to convince myself to not buy a new video game system, but THE STRUGGLE IS REAL.
