Mortal Kombat 11 launch trailer is a high dose of nostalgia

Get a massive hit of nostalgic fun in the new Mortal Kombat 11 launch trailer

NetherRealm Studios has decided to reveal the launch trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 early, taking old school players of the previously releases games back to the times of the original Mortal Kombat.

Right off the bat, we can hear the original Mortal Kombat theme starting up, and as I can imagine players that were there for the release of the original Mortal Kombat begin to get goosebumps. Instead of the typical rap song that we heard in the cinematic trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, we have the classic song "Test Your Might".

While the trailer doesn't really reveal anything new for the game, it certainly does continue that hype train pushing on until the release of the title on April 23rd. Yesterday, we got a gameplay reveal trailer for the Nintendo Switch version of the game, as expected there is some considerable downscales graphically, check that trailer out here. Mortal Kombat 11 is planned for launch on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC and Nintendo Switch on April 23rd.
