Few phrases in gaming are as iconic as this one and is instantly identifiable with Mortal Kombat. I remember the first time I heard it echoing through the room, as I was walking through the arcade in the local mall. I wandered over to see what appeared to be real people fighting it out in true martial arts style. Then the guy playing pulled out a FATALITY and my jaw hit the floor! I couldn’t believe that something like that was in a video game, much less one that I could play myself!
While I was never much of a fighting game master and pulling out a FATALITY was a rare thing for me, Mortal Kombat has always been a game that I enjoy playing. With a constantly evolving story line and new characters appearing with each iteration, you can count on MK delivering new thrills with each new game.
Here we are, over 25 years later, and the franchise has spawned over 20+ games, two major motion pictures (Mortal Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Annihilation), comic books, music soundtracks, and other assorted video features. All of this leads us up to the latest installment in the franchise: Mortal Kombat 11!
In this iteration, you can count on a slew of returning characters, plus all new fighters to master those fatalities on. Customize your fighter down to the smallest detail, including multiple variations of attack for each character. A new graphics engine should showcase all the gory moments you’ve come to expect from Mortal Kombat, so much so, you may even forget you’re playing a game!
Pre-order now and take part in our early Mortal Kombat 11 release on Monday, April 22, right before 9pm. You can certainly walk in, but if you pre-order, you’ll also get access to an extra character, the always diabolical Shao Kahn! Details on our early release event can be found here.
