News by Matt S.

If there’s one fighting game that I’m looking forward to almost as much as Dead or Alive 6, its Mortal Kombat 11. They’re the perfect antidotes to one another, really; Dead or Alive 6 plays to sexuality, with its gorgeous characters, sweaty bodies, and body-hugging and/or skimpy costumes. Mortal Kombat takes violence to the extreme, with dismemberment, gore, and a brutal horror theme.

Fighting games are at their best when they’re extreme in some way, and as you can see from this latest trailer introducing the character of Kabal, Mortal Kombat 11 is taking the series further than ever before.

Of course, the violence is so over the top that it’s really quite satirical, rather than anything to get uncomfortable about. As long as the developers have continued to work on the (very solid) foundation for the fighting itself, this is going to be one of the highlights for the year.
