Over the weekend, Midway released a trailer for the Mortal Kombat reboot. Unfortunately it is not tied to the much darker and more violent minimovie that has been floating around online. Rumors surrounding this mini had it pegged as the newest reboot to the series but writers of the third Mortal Kombat film have denied this.
As mentioned in our E3 preview, the rebooted Mortal Kombat will have a presence on the show floor. As you will see below, the game will feature a retro look over much improved graphics. It almost looks as though the events of Mortal Kombat II and Mortal Kombat 3, as well as the characters, will be combined for Mortal Kombat.
Favorites Johnny Cage, Sub-Zero and Reptile have all returned while classics like Liu Kang, Scorpion and Sonya are all notably absent from the trailer. Old school levels like the Deadpool and the Pit II also make their return, hopefully with their respective fatalities as well. New to the series will be tag team fighting mode where four players enter Kombat together, switching back and forth and performing double team maneuvers. Midway has already boasted the game will feature the most brutal fatalities of any Mortal Kombat yet. With the preview of Kung Lao’s new fatality, we are inclined to agree.
Take a peek at the reboot trailer for Mortal Kombat after the jump and keep it here all week long for your up to date information on all things E3.
