Mortal Kombat is celebrating 30 years of brutality, and while fans had been hoping for a new game announcement – or, perhaps, a compilation of old ones – this montage trailer will have to suffice. To be fair, it’s impressive: it segues between classic retro footage of the old arcade Mortal Kombat games and modern ones, and even layers in scenes from the various films and animated shows.
Obviously, things can get a bit gnarly – it wouldn’t be Mortal Kombat if they didn’t, would it? – but this is well worth a watch if you can stomach the impalements and severed body parts before dinner. What are your fondest memories of Midway’s legendary beat-‘em-up? Finish them in the comments section below.
