Mortal Kombat is obviously known for its blood and gore, but it's no stranger to some lighthearted levity either. Friendships have been included in various games in the franchise's past, and are an alternative to fatalities that swap out the carnage for cuteness. Mortal Kombat 11 is bringing them back in an impending content update, and you can see a few of them in the above trailer.

These are obviously very silly, but seeing Scorpion hug a giant teddy bear, Sub Zero serving up ice cream, or Liu Kang busting out his disco dance moves is joyous. These friendships are part of a free update coming to the game on 26th May, when premium expansion pack Aftermath is also scheduled to release.
