NetherRealm has released a story trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, confirming a bunch of characters and a perplexing multi-dimensional narrative.

The developer has slowly been confirming playable characters in the run up to the game’s release next month, although a recent leak may have punctured some of the marketing excitement.

The latest trailer officially announces a number of new characters which fall in line with the leak, including Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, and Kotal Kahn.

Mortal Kombat 11’s story mode also appears to be as needlessly complicated as ever, with new bad guy and the ‘keeper of time’ Kronika hoping to rewrite history after Raiden’s crackdown against evil in Earthrealm.

Keen to restore balance for those who ‘disdain the current course of history’, Kronika has opened dimensions from the past – meaning a number of past selves now encounter their present selves, including a funky shades-wearing Johnny Cage.

It’s essentially an excuse for the same characters to fight each other, but we’ll take it if it means more throwback costumes from Mortal Kombat’s origins.

Mortal Kombat 11 releases on 23 April on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
