Taking the spotlight in this bloody new trailer for Mortal Kombat X is the butt-kicking, staff-wielding and stylish hat-wearing Shaolin clan. Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Kung Jin spend much of its nearly two-minute-long running time finding creative ways to break bones while optimizing them to achieve a maximum cringe factor. If that was the goal, I do believe they were successful.
It looks gruesome, but if you’re perusing this site, I imagine gruesome is your middle name. It’s a pleasure to meet you, Finley Gruesome Macabre (aka “Bonecrunch”).
Mortal Kombat X releases on April 14 for PC, PS4 and Xbox One.
