Watch this: Mortal Kombat X launch trailer


We’ve got a week to go until our screens become spattered with blood and chunky bits; Mortal Kombat X is out on 14 April and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment has released the game’s official launch trailer.

The trailer doesn’t show much gameplay (it doesn’t really need to at this point) but instead shows heaps of what we can assume is the game’s story mode content. It looks fantastically over-the-top and cheesy. Also, they’ve thrown in some System of a Down for the trailer’s soundtrack, which works kind of well.

Check it out after the jump and keep an eye open for Liu Kang’s ridiculous double-leg-chest-kick-split-in-half-finisher, because it’s just bonkers and I can’t wait to try it out.
