Storm Collectibles Display MK Klassics at Toy Fair
Injustice figures also present.

New York's Toy Fair is the place to be for the latest in collectible merchandse and Storm Collectibles have shown they've still got some klassic Mortal Kombat offerings up their sleeve!

Toyark was in NYC to take extensive photos from the Storm display, where 1:12 scale figures of Baraka, Cyrax and a netted Smoke are joined by classic fighting game characters from Street Fighter and King of Fighters. Behind the MK offerings can also be seen Injustice versions of Darkseid, Bane and Lobo.


The MKII and MK3 characters are faithfully rendered, with Cyrax demonstrating his cyber assassin net and open chest cavity in Smoke's general direction. Baraka strikes an impressive pose, brandishing his deadly blades with a sculpt that captures the original design -- right down to the deeply shadowed eyes created by the digitized mask!

Some fans may remember earlier versions of these characters. Prototype sculpts, including the Lin Kuei cyborg model and Baraka, were displayed during the 2017 San Diego Comic-Con alongside Shao Kahn & klassic palette swaps.

Do these toys live-up to the klassic reputation of their source? Share your thoughts & feedback in the Media & Merchandise forum, or jump back to Mortal Kombat's arcade past in the 2D Kombat Klassics forum!

Ronda Rousey Brings Sonya to WWE Elimination Chamber
Life imitates art at WWE live event!

In World Wrestling Entertainment the only air support comes from the top rope, but that didn't stop Ronda Rousey bringing a touch of Mortal Kombat 11 to tonight's Elimination Chamber event! The Raw Women's Champion defended the title dressed as the character she voices in the upcoming game: Sonya Blade!


WWE released the above image via Twitter as the action unfolded live in Houston. It shows Rousey making her entrance on the stage, wearing a cap and two-tone fighting gear fans will recognize as inspired by Sonya's MK11 customizable attire [pictured below], and her 2011 vested design.


Rousey was a much anticipated guest at last month's live The Reveal event, where the former UFC and Olympic champion took to the stage as the new voice of Sonya Blade. She also discussed her history as a fan in the Sonya Blade Reveal Trailer.

The promotional partnership was mentioned during Elimination Commentary commentary -- not the first time the two brands have crossed over! Johnny Cage crashed NetherRealm Studios' mobile game WWE Immortals in 2015. Ten years earlier, WWE was promoting Shaolin Monks!

Nintendo Direct Spotlights MK11 Switch Release
Nintendo of America puts out April date for Switch.

Mortal Kombat 11 will be the first installment in the series since 2007's Armageddon to feature on a Nintendo home console, but details of the Switch release have been scarce, with some outlets indicating delays. The latest Nintendo Direct update appears to address domestic concerns, promoting a standard release via Nintendo of America. Watch:

Mortal Kombat 11 features at the 30 mins 1 sec mark, promoted with a small, bloodless clip advertising the game's release for April 23rd. That's consistent with official dates provided by Warner Bros, and widely advertised for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.

Across the pond the story isn't so positive, with online retailers Amazon UK and GAME still listing the Switch version for a delayed release of May 10th. MK Online user SlickRick82 first called attention to the impending delay, posting to the forums late last year: "I work for GAME in the uk and can confirm the Switch version will launch 2 weeks later on May 10th."

Around the world, release dates remain inconsistent. Amazon Spain mirrors the British May 10th date, while Amazon Germany is listing availability for all versions starting April 19th. Australian retailers, including Amazon and JB Hifi, offer no release date at this time.

MK Online will continue to follow this story as it develops. International fans are encouraged to seek further information from local retailers when purchasing or pre-ordering the game.

Official Mortal Kombat 11 Jade Trailer
Jade lives!... Sort of...

After disappearing almost entirely into obscurity in the last game: Jade makes a deadly return in Mortal Kombat 11, stepping back into the spotlight in the latest character reveal gameplay trailer! Watch:

She may be a revenant, but death hasn't dulled her deadly set of moves! Jade plays with a klassic sensibility, bringing back an array of her best known moves from her earliest playable appearance. Her extendable bo staff features heavily in her style, but you'll also be able to run through projectiles, deliver her version of a shadow kick, and reclaim the glaive for a variety of deadly projectiles and stabbing moves! It all comes together for another visceral fatality!

Mortal Kombat 11 Render Reveals Revenant Jade
Mourned but not forgotten!

She was nowhere to be seen during NetherRealm's incursion of Earthrealm, but the revenant Jade is finally accounted for in the newest character reveal render from Mortal Kombat 11!

Jade fell victim to Sindel during the Mortal Kombat reboot story mode, but when Quan Chi's undead revenant army attacked in Mortal Kombat X, Jade was curiously absent! Her glaive weapon passed to a mournful Kitana, but still the question of her fate remained.

At last Jade gets the full revenant treatment, revealing cracked, ashen skin beneath a newly designed assassin's garb in her trademark green. This newly featured design answers some questions, while raising many others -- but it won't be her only look in MK11! Time bending plot and a rich customization system means Jade will live again when Mortal Kombat 11 hits the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 23rd!

What do you think of Jade's new design and what does it mean for her mysterious journey? Share your feedback and join the discussion on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!
