And the odds of a little bit of April Fools stupidity spilling into it is incredibly high, but that doesn’t matter because it’s funny as hell. There’s also a ton of gameplay from the upcoming Mortal Kombat reboot that shows off quite a bit of Cage’s repertoire.
The trailer definitely lightens the mood of the game, which up until now has been pretty dark and gory. Now it’s just goofy and gory, which is why we’re inclined to believe there’s a reason this trailer has landed on 01 April. If not, well then Johnny Cage is definitely going to be the comic relief character during the Story Mode of Mortal Kombat, which would be six kinds of awesome.
