A steady campaign of action-packed trailers built Mortal Kombat 11 hype to nuclear levels with a succession of teasers and previews, but what if they revealed more than characters? Honest Trailers turns the parody up to 11 to drop comedy truth bombs in their latest look at the fighting franchise. Watch:

They already covered some of MK11's commercially driven pressure points with the Mortal Kombat X Honest Game Trailer, but there are plenty of other tried and true ribs to tickle.

Series tropes like callously implausible violence, multiple in-game currencies, and gratuitous Ks are served up easy. Time travel plots and the gratuitous omnipresence of nostalgic callbacks are also mortally mocked. Of course, it's all in good fun. The video has already got a laugh out of all-powerful Ed Boon, who shared the joke while tweeting: "Gotta admit... this one kracked me up."

The next official trailer will be released in the coming days to preview downloadable DC Comics guest fighter The Joker. Revisit the Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Pack Trailer and discuss all these clips on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!
