We’re just over one week away from a new Mortal Kombat game so it’s a good time Mortal Kombat X reminded us what the series is all about.


The Mortal Kombat X launch trailer is here to celebrate the upcoming release of the game.

The trailer is directed by System of A Down bassist Shavo Odadjian, and just like this live-action trailer, it features the band’s song, Chop Suey.

It’s mostly showing story beats though, so you can avoid it if you’re sensitive about spoilers.

Mortal Kombat X is out on PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One April 14. The PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 versions will release later in the summer.
