Past and Present Clash in the Mortal Kombat 11 Story Trailer

When NetherRealm held their Mortal Kombat 11 reveal, late last year, among all the characters and fatalities they showed, there was a Story Prologue trailer that introduced us to Kronika, The Keeper of Time.  Now, a new Story trailer has been released and we find that this Keeper of Time intends on bringing back characters from the past to collide with the present timeline to wage war against Raiden and the chaos he has caused.

This is the Story Trailer for Mortal Kombat 11…

Utilizing Kronika’s ability to bring back and introduce characters for Mortal Kombat 11’s story is a brilliant move by NetherRealm Studios.  It allows for gamers to interact with characters from every timeline and finally fulfill years of playing what-if games.  Plus, it’ll be intriguing to see the two dynamics between past, good Raiden and present-day god-killer Raiden.

In addition to revealing the outline for the impending story, the trailer also gave us an introduction to 3 new characters:

  • Cassie Cage, the commander of an elite Special Forces unit and daughter of the iconic duo, Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage, employs her lethal fighting skills to win every battle, with a relentless drive to measure up to her parents’ legacy. Additional gameplay featuring Cassie Cage will be showcased today, March 6, at 3:00 p.m. CST, during this week’s Kombat Kast on the NetherRealm Twitch channel.
  • Jacqui Briggs, a competitive fighter trained in kickboxing and martial arts, follows in the footsteps of her father, Jax Briggs, as a member of the Special Forces. She believes her duty is to protect Earthrealm and her family, no matter the risk.
  • Erron Black is a thrill-seeking outlaw hooked on the adrenaline of chasing his own pursuits. Black is a skilled crack shot selling his services to the highest bidder while dressed in classic western Outworld attire.
