Hot on the heels of yesterday’s live-action Mortal Kombat movie “pitch” comes the announcement of a new Mortal Kombat game, slated for a 2011 release on PS3 and 360. This trailer was included with the announcement, and shows fans what to expect from the game’s revamped 2D fighting engine.
The press release also trumpets the return to “mature presentation,” so we fully expect some serious blood and guts and skeletons to be flying across the screen. Mortal Kombat’s creator, Ed Boon is leading the development team and is promising a return to the series’ roots. Based on this trailer, the game looks pretty far along – we can only hope they’ll let us play it next week at E3!
