The newest trailer for Mortal Kombat tells the story of one of the series’ most well known characters, Shang Tsung.

The trailer, which you can check out below, talks about how the evil sorcerer discovered the extra-dimensional realm of Outworld. He became obsessed with power and pledged himself over to Outworld’s leader Shao Khan to obtain more power.

Also highlighted in the trailer are some of Shang Tsung’s powers and abilities while in combat with opponents, including shape shifting to look like his enemies.

Developed by NetherRealm Studios, the reboot of the Mortal Kombat franchise is still scheduled for release on PS3 and Xbox 360 April 19 in the US and April 21 in the UK.
