So that’s why Jax has two artificial arms:
Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Sonya and all the other characters are part of it. New is MMA fighter Cole Young, who is also on because of his birthmark, which looks like the Mortal Kombat logo great tournament for the fate of the universe may participate. The antagonist is Sub-Zero, who is allowed to put a lot of people on hold in the trailer. So the story, well, is there.
The fans can expect gallons of CGI blood and, as you can already hear in the trailer, famous one-liners of the individual characters. Also a few of the fatalaties should not be missing. The special moves are a specialty of the series and could serve as highlights of the fights.
