I'm sure most of you were expecting to see the Mortal Kombat: Rebirth teaser that's been floating around the internet the past few days. Well, instead we have a trailer for the upcoming Mortal Kombat game that, I could only imagine, would have been announced at E3 next week. This year however, everyone seems to have wanted to let their cats out of their proverbial bags, so we're getting to see this stuff ahead of time — lucky us.
While the trailer certainly looks impressive, you have to wonder if the developer is taking its cues from Capcom — taking their classic 2D gameplay and giving it a shiny new 3D skin akin to Street Fighter 4. If you ask me though, that's probably a good thing. The recent entries into the series have done little in the way of innovate, and the concepts which seemed great in theory, ended up failing to impress in execution. Does this Mortal Kombat reboot have what it takes to bring the series back from the dead? That remains to be seen, but this trailer is definitely a start.
