Ahead of the Kombat Kast scheduled to take place later today, March 6, NetherRealm Studios has released a new story mode trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 revealing more of the game's narrative elements and a number of playable characters.

The new trailer confirms many previously suspected characters as playable with new gameplay / Fatalities shown for Cassie Cage, Erron Black and Jacqui Briggs cementing them as returning fighters from MKX — though there's also a few currently unknown characters appearing in the cutscenes too.

Kronika appears to be recruiting the forces of Outworld and Netherrealm to take on Raiden and defend the flow of time by teaming up with Shao Kahn and his army while the god of thunder attempts to bring Kotal Kahn to Earthrealm's side.

We also get our first good chance to see some of the time travel shenanigans in action, as the trailer shows a scene of Johnny Cage talking to a younger version of himself rightfully confused as to what is going on.

Previously seen yet unconfirmed characters also make regular appearances throughout the trailer with Kronika, Liu Kang, Kitana and Kung Lao not receiving any gameplay nor did Kotal Kahn. D'Vorah, who has shown up in images, also appears in the trailer alongside Shao Kahn with all of the revealed new fighters joining Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, Kabal, Jade and Johnny Cage.

Kano is scheduled to have his gameplay officially revealed during the upcoming Kombat Kast starting at 1 p.m. PST though the folks at NRS will likely also be diving deeper into the footage we saw with the new story cinematics. You can find the new Mortal Kombat story trailer after the jump which obviously features some NSFW content along with a gallery below.
