With the release of Mortal Kombat 11 only weeks away WB Games has dropped a fresh TV spot bringing brutality into reality.
This brand spanking new trailer is low on gameplay but chock full of live action actors representing the diverse audience of Mortal Kombat players entering the fray. Each actor has hints of different classic MK characters; Sub-Zero’s frozen footstep, Raiden’s Lightening coursing through his arms, before, finally, signs of the welcome return of another classic character, the 10,000-year-old Princess Kitana.
Although we are only given the briefest of prerendered glimpses, it is confirmation that the rightful heir to Edenia has returned. You can watch the TV spot below.
Alongside the new TV spot, we have been treated to another debuting character in Mortal Kombat 11‘s expanding roster with Kollector’s debut trailer. Kollector’s unique selling point is his six-armed fighting style and covetous personality.
Although it may seem he only has four (yawn the Shoa Khan have been mercilessly tearing warriors apart for decades now with four-armed ferocity) keen-eyed Kombat fans will have noticed he has a third set of arms on his back. These arms are permanently in use holding his tiny back-pack which contains the riches he has appropriated in the name of Shoa Khan and the Outworld Empire. Willing to kill anyone that stands between him and his treasure.
The unhinged design and character of Mr. Kollector immediately reminded me of Larfleeze the Orange Lantern of Avarice, so watch out Injustice 3. Check out the trailer below for a first look at Netherelm’s latest star of your next nightmare.
Kollector’s arrival in Mortal Kombat 11 will be the first playable six-armed kombatant in Mortal Kombat games but not the first six-armed character in MK history. That honor goes to the six-armed Shokan warrior Grum (basically MK’s Poochy), who was featured and immediately defeated by Subb-Zero in seven panels of the 1994 comic book Mortal Kombat: Blood & Thunder issue 2.
What is less intimidating than one Nunchuk? Six Nunchuks, that’s what. Check out a bit of MK history below:
