Test your might: Here's Mortal Kombat 11's launch story trailer featuring the classic theme

Is this a look into the future DLC?

Although we just got to see Shao Kahn and the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 11 in action for the first time yesterday, we have another new trailer for the upcoming game on our hands.

NetherRealm Studios has released the official launch trailer featuring more of the game's story mode set to the tune of the classic Mortal Kombat theme associated with the film along with looks at some potentially new and returning characters who currently aren't on the playable roster.

While the first half of the new trailer is largely made up of scenes we've already seen in previous videos like the Kahn vs. Kahn section, the latter part shows us classic fighters like Cyrax and Sektor, whose move sets were at least present in MKX thanks to Triborg.

A character that appears to be Sheeva can also be seen standing behind Kitana at around the 40-second mark of the video you can see below. It is still unknown if these fighters will show up for actual matches or if they'll be relegated to cutscene battles like Fujin was in Mortal Kombat X's story.

The previous Mortal Kombat title did feature future DLC characters as playable fights in the story like with Tanya, but it's far from a guarantee since others like Rain and Baraka were around that never became playable when all was said and done.

Mortal Kombat 11's official release is only five days away now on April 23 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch and PC though be wary of spoilers because some copies have leaked early. Shang Tsung is set to be the game's first DLC character in the Kombat Pack that will contain six new fighters in total.

You can check out the full launch trailer below, and as per usual it features a plethora of NSFW violent imagery.
