New Mortal Kombat Game Trailer Debuts

Mortal Kombat is coming back, and it will be returning to a simpler, cleaner, bloodier game than its predecessors. The trailer looks like the game harkens back to the early days of Mortal Kombat, where blood and gore were supposed to keep the kids away (but served to attract them like… well, kids to violent video games), rather than the last few more family friendly outings of the series, like Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe.new mortal kombat game trailer debuts logo

Both critically and financially, the last few installments for the fighting series have been met with thunderous indifference. Even anti-video game crusader Jack Thompson hardly raised an objection. And if a Mortal Kombat game can’t piss off Jack Thompson, then it might be time to reboot the franchise.

Other than the trailer below, details are scarce. It is expected in 2011 for the Xbox 360 and PS3, and will be developed by NetherRealm Studios (formerly Midway), but beyond that very little is known. Even the name is up in the air, but with E3 just days away, odds are you can expect to hear more about this game very soon.

It seems like Mortal Kombat has received more press in the last few days than it has in years. The new game trailer follows another trailer that recently hit the internet and took gaming fans by storm.

Earlier this week saw the release of a seven and a half minute movie trailer for a possible realistic based Mortal Kombat movie. The trailer was filmed in just two days by director Kevin Tancharoen (Fame). The trailer was made in the hopes of convincing Warner Bros.- who own the MK movie rights- to finance a new movie that would be an R rated look at a semi-realistic and ultra-gory Mortal Kombat world. No word yet from Warner Bros. on whether or not they were impressed. You can find the trailer on YouTube here, but be warned, it is gruesome and definitely not safe for most work places.

Warning: This trailer may not be suitable for all ages.
