Mortal Kombat 11’s Launch Trailer Brilliantly Uses Ikonik Music


Mortal Kombat 11

I should really stop writing about Mortal Kombat 11 and do other work, but NetherRealm Studios keep publishing more MK 11 news for me to write about, and today is no exception. MK 11’s launch trailer has been released, and it features a certain throwback track that fans of the series will absolutely love. You know the song. The “ikonik” one from the first few games, as my editor suggested I write. Check it out below.

Just hearing the old Mortal Kombat announcer say “TEST YOUR MIGHT!” once again is the hit to the nostalgia I didn’t even know I needed, but this trailer does contain some snippets of information about the game’s Story Mode, including the appearances of certain characters.

The trailer shows off characters like Cyrax and Sheeva, though Sheeva isn’t exactly front and center like Cyrax is. We also see what appears to be Liu Kang being given some kind of godly power. Not sure a character as powerful as Liu Kang needed to be given more power, but whatever. It’s an exciting trailer nonetheless.

MK 11 launches next week, on April 23rd, for PS4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch. Will you be picking it up on launch day, and will you also be screaming “TEST YOUR MIGHT!” at passers-by? Sound off in the comments.
