That 7-minute live-action video may not have been for a new Mortal Kombat game, but that doesn’t mean there’s not one coming. In fact, there very much is. And it’s got a trailer of its own, as seen above, which doesn’t pull any first date tricks and shows the “all new graphics engine” in action right away.
Said to be the most brutal game in the series yet, this one’s simply called Mortal Kombat, and is headed to Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 sometime next year.
Promised are the deepest story mode and the ‘most extensive’ online experience seen in any fighting game, along with new gameplay features and modes.
Perhaps most delightfully though, Fatalities are back and “presented in more gory detail than ever before”.
According to original creator Ed Boon, the new game “really is a response to what players have been demanding: mature presentation, reinvented 2D fighting mechanic and the best, most gruesome fatalities ever!”
