Mortal Kombat has always had a shock value to it's visuals. From the outset we have been granted the ability to see blood that feels perfectly at home in the realms of a fighting game. However the gore aspect was something altogether different it was imaginative but until recently wqs always more of a gimmick.
From the trailer below you can see the leaps that have been made brining the game to the new generation of gaming. The visceral nature of the battle can make you wince on more than occasion but the real triumph looks to be the characters physics.
The flow of moves look smooth and organic hopefully improving the realism of the experience. I am waiting with baited breath to see what E3 brings but for now feast your eyes on the trailer and further details below.
