NetherRealm Studios has released a trailer for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath showcasing the power of Friendships, which are comedic finishers available in lieu of the game’s fatalities.
The clip clocks in at under two minutes and brings back a couple of classic Friendships from Mortal Kombat II. Set to Smash Mouth’s cover of “Why Can’t We Be Friends,” Liu Kang’s disco dancing finish makes an appearance, as well as Raiden’s Kidd Thunder. Other Friendships on display include old-school Scorpion harpooning a teddy bear, Sub-Zero with a lolly cart, Shao Kahn using his hammer for the High Striker carnival game and Jax playing the sax. There are also new faces showcased, such as Fujin flying a kite with his wind powers, Sindel sipping wine and Terminator performing tricks on a motorcycle and giving his iconic thumbs up from Terminator 2: Judgement Day.
In addition to Friendships and new characters like RoboCop, a free content update will include new Stages such as the Klassic Dead Pool and Soul Chamber arenas, and Stage Fatalities as well.
Developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows and Google Stadia. Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath goes on sale digitally May 26.
