Mortal Kombat 1’s Launch Trailer Is A Four Minute Gore-Soaked Epic

It's in our blood.

It’s hard to believe it’s snuck up this fast, but Mortal Kombat 1 is nearly here. NetherRealms’ rebooted Mortal Kombat universe arrives next week on September 19th – or this week on September 14th if you’re lucky enough to be picking up the Premium Edition – for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Switch and PC and to mark the occasion the studio has dropped a massive launch trailer.

Clocking in at four minutes long, this trailer once again introduces us to this new story set in a world reborn by the Fire God Liu Kang, where any chance at peace is quickly torn in two by a new battle between Earthrealm and Outworld. It’s basically a huge amalgamation of all the of the trailer marketing that NetherRealm and WB Games have done to date, showing off its cast of characters (including Johnny Cage’s Jean-Claude Van Damme variant!), its new Invasion Mode, Kameo fighters and lots and lots of gore.
