NetherRealm Studios have posted a video on their favourite Mortal Kombat 11 fatalities, which shows a few hilarious, albeit traditionally gruesome, ways to end your opponents. There's even one with Johnny Cage's love for ventriloquism.
Let's face it, if you were given one word to describe the game you're playing, Mortal Kombat would be one of the easiest - just say fatality. For added panache, say it in a really low voice.
Being such a staple of the franchise, Mortal Kombat 11's fatalities have evolved in just about every aspect. Well, except perhaps for brutality, which has always been as graphic, although you could argue that NetherRealm have outdone themselves in terms of complexity.
In fact, Scorpion's fatality in the trailer has quite a few steps to it, each seemingly more brutal than the next, but Skarlet isn't far behind with her blood spike fatality dubbed Bloody Mess.
Geras' fatality on the trailer is aptly named Peeling Back, and it does exactly what it suggests, except it peels back the victims innards from whatever's left inside that wall. Not a bad way to introduce yourself to the franchise, and his story is pretty cleverly tailored to support his coming back.
As we've come to expect from Mortal Kombat's resident show off, Johnny Cage seems to be rocking the most outrageous, yet hilarious one of 'em all, and it's about him, the opponent's torso and ventriloquism.
There's no need to question why it's one of the devs' favourites as it packs everything we've come to expect from Mortal Kombat 11's actorly fighter - showmanship, theatricality and an incredible amount of cockiness, which helps make Cage digestible even when at its most annoying.
Which of course is going to be double this time around, as Mortal Kombat 11's storyline features not one, but two Johnny Cages. You know, in case one Johnny Cage wasn't enough.
