The Story Mode Trailer gave us a taste of original trilogy fighters meeting their aged selves. Now the Mortal Kombat 11 Old Skool trailer goes full tilt as klassic kombatants are officially revealed in battle with themselves! Watch:
Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax, and Kitana step out of the nineties and into the Mortal Kombat 11 spotlight! They're joining the fight for the future, but the greatest opponents they'll face in their future may just prove to be themselves!
Liu Kang is fly kicking his way through story mode and gameplay, with a revamped version of his klassic dragon fatality a stand-out. Kung Lao's bladed hat is as deadly as ever, slicing through the corrupt version of himself that dwells in the Netherrealm after the events of Mortal Kombat X. It's the first gameplay we've seen from Kung Lao, and a significant elaboration of the blink-and-you-missed it appearance of corrupt Liu kang in the first gameplay reveal trailer!
If the traditional heroes think that'll be enough to stop automaton emissary Geras -- they're clearly mistaken. Their exploits in story mode have shown us the full extent of Geras's ability to suffer a fatal wound, only to wind back the sands of time and learn from his demise! You can see more of Geras in his own spotlight reveal trailer!
Watch the swirling sands closely in the trailer and you'll spot a brief glimpse of klassic Kitana. The big reveal of this trailer, after an inadvertent reveal of his bio last week, is Jackson Briggs! Jax officially returns with klassic and kontemporary gameplay and story appearances. His younger self will apparently meet daughter Jacqui Briggs, and may even help her rebel against the steel will of the grizzled, bearded, and armor-plated present day Jax! We can see him unleashing an unrelenting chain of punches from the "gotcha" stance. Apparently he'll also be battling zombie Shaolin Monks in a scene that may remind you of a similar skeletal skirmish in the intro video from Mortal Kombat: Armageddon.
The trailer also shows us even Johnny Cage has his limits when it comes to meeting his own arrogant younger-self. Will you embrace MK's past or double down on the future? With mere days until the Closed Beta begins - join the discussion on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!
