Fighting fans will be happy to hear that the Mortal Kombat story trailer for Liu Kang was released today and he is looking as brutal as ever! The trailer shows us a look into the fighter’s storyline, as well as demonstrating his fighting technique and showcasing his musical theme.
Interestingly enough, the character has undergone a few subtle changes. These include a new teleport move and most importantly, his signature bicycle kick now now longer defies gravity, but now looks much more realistic, more like a move used by Keanu Reeves in the first ‘The Matrix’ movie. The trailer also has cameos from characters such as Raiden and Kano, as well as two other noteworthy fighters. First of all, it appears Shang Stung’s appearance which changes in almost every game now is more like how he appeared in MK2 and at the end of MK Shoulin Monks, and takes the form of Reptile at one stage. The cameo that caught my attention most however is the inclusion of Bo’ Rai Cho from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. Nothing is confirmed or announced if he will appear as a playable character in the game, but so far he seems to be the only new character from the MK universe related to this title from a game outside the original trilogy.
The trailer also includes the song “Liu Kang’s Theme” by DJ and producer Congorock. Liu Kang’s Theme will also appear the album “Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired by the Warriors” and will be released in April 2011, and the track is now currently downloadable on Amazon here and iTunes here. This is the second theme to be released, first of which was Mileena’s which you can read about here. The trailer also includes shots of goodies included in the kollector’s edition, which is also worth checking out.
Get as excited as you Kan! Mortal Kombat for the PS3 and Xbox 360 is shaping up to be a really Krazy looking game!
