First footage of Kratos in Mortal Kombat leaked

Late last year, God of War star and all-around badass Kratos was confirmed as a character in the next iteration of Mortal Kombat, but we haven't seen what he'll actually look like in the game until now.

In an "Extended Trailer" posted on YouTube, we get only a few seconds of Kratos footage, but unlike the trailer released in December, this is actual in-game combat. Kratos appears at about 1:16 into the video:

Kratos' cinematic attack looks similar to his many quick-time event moves from God of War, complete, of course, with his signature blades.

The off-screen video isn't of the highest quality, but at least it provides an idea of what to expect when Kratos makes his cataclysmic debut in the fighting series later this year... and we're sure to get the proper version of the trailer soon.

    Kratos actually fits in with MK rather well, not only in terms of fighting and his brutal personality, but even his physical appearance. By contrast, Superman and Wonder Woman...? Ugh, I know I should get over it and just get excited for this, but the nightmares of MK Vs DC will live with me forever. Forget MK4, or even MK Special Forces - I think MK vs DC was the worst MK ever, based on its premise alone. Still, Kratos looks awesome and I can't wait to play him! The demo is brilliant, Johnny Cage turned out alot better than I first thought. So this, and Soul Calibur Broken Destiny.... Hm, I wonder what the next fighting game Kratos is going to make a playable cameo in??

    So all I think when I see the tree is om nom nom nom. And looks like when I play it will only be in the car stage oh noes a car.

    Any word on if the Xbox version will have their own exclusive character? I can't think of anyone who'd be appropriate...

    I'm just gonna go out and say, this Mortal Kombat will be the most violent game EVER.

    All right, you guys are right. I just didn't watch this one, because the first few seconds were the same, and i had seen the other one enough, and in better quality. Still, it appears to be an official video of some time. I don't know if I would call it leaked. I'll reserve judgement until I find out where the footage is from.

    This is almost the same trailer as the one you get from completing the demo but their is more too it. Raiden's fatality wasn't in the demo trailer, the 4 seconds from where it says challenge tower isn't in it, I don't know what the hell the upside down part was but I defiantly didn't see that in the demo trailer, the part between test your might and test your strike wasn't in the demo trailer, online king of the hill wasn't their and neither was the Kratos gameplay.
  • Doorstop - March 22, 2011 7:36 p.m.

    This is almost exactly like the demo trailer but it's definately different. The Challenge Tower, some extra mini-game footage and actual Kratos gameplay weren't in the demo trailer.
  • chrisat928 - March 22, 2011 7:11 p.m.

    Yeah, this is from the PS3 demo.
  • Link1983 - March 22, 2011 7:10 p.m.

    gamesradartylerwilde. It's there. I promise you. I have shown a couple of my friends already.
  • GamesRadarTylerWilde - March 22, 2011 7:02 p.m.

    @RedKirth Did not see Kratos in the post-demo video, if I recall correctly.
  • Sleepingdragon - March 22, 2011 6:13 p.m.

    Zelda will be in the wii version (as if)
  • RedKirth - March 22, 2011 6:12 p.m.

    Ummm, this isn't a leak. You get this video when you finish the demo. I've seen it at least 4 times all ready. Just download the demo off PSN and beat all 4 characters, and you'll see it, and in better quality. I'm sure someone has uploaded better quality by now anyway.
  • Scoob - March 22, 2011 5:56 p.m.

    Master Chief is going to be in the Xbox 360 version.
  • croatianmaniac232 - March 22, 2011 5:53 p.m.
