Attendees received the best parting gift ever at the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event in Los Angeles

I never knew how much I wanted an hourglass until it was handed to me

The big Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event took place yesterday in Los Angeles and London. Fans around the world tuned in to the live streams to see what NetherRealm Studios had up their sleeves for the next big installment in the Mortal Kombat franchise, and the company certainly did not disappoint with their reveals.

Some fans were lucky enough to attend the event, and by the blessing of the Elder Gods, I was one of the fortunate souls chosen to attend the show in LA.

The large facility where the event took place housed numerous set ups with a playable build of Mortal Kombat 11 (naturally), a large stage where all of the main attractions were held, a marketplace setting featuring an art showcase, a Mortal Kombat tattoo spot, a bar, and much more. As if reveal day wasn't amazing enough, the folks who put it together had one last cherry on top for attendees as they left.

Walking back out of the main entrance after the day concluded, I was handed a duffel bag with a large, yellow Mortal Kombat logo on it. Inside was what felt like a large item, but I didn't know what it was until I got home.

To my surprise — and I'm sure to the surprise of everyone who received one — inside the bag was a large hourglass with the Mortal Kombat logo on one end and the date commemorating the event on the other. This gift, apparently, is presented by GameStop, and it is easily the best memento I have ever walked away from a gaming event with.

The hourglass is a significant item for Mortal Kombat 11 due to the game's story having a heavy focus on time and different timelines. You probably remember seeing two versions of Scorpion — one that looked like he did from back in the early Mortal Kombat days — in the initial Mortal Kombat 11 reveal trailer.

Anyway, here are some not so great photos of the gift from yours truly.
