Have the details behind an upcoming MK11 trailer leaked? (SPOILER: Probably not)

    NRS games are no stranger to leaks. Or, more pertinently, Mortal Kombat is no stranger to leaks. While the NRS team manage to hold onto some secrets, the days of Reptile in MK1 are long gone and significant details leaked about MK9 and MKX.

    MK9 had the data-mining issue with the demo, which revealed everything about the game including the much vaunted story mode script and revealed Cyber Sub Zero in possibly the least underwhelming way possible (though equally possibly the best for the blood pressure of lore guys, like me), whereas MKX had the entire roster leak late in January.


    The source is very dubious but it may seem that leaks have already started on the MK11, with supposed details of an upcoming trailer, supposedly set for release at the beginning of E3 on June 12th, being shared here https://gamefaqs.gamespot.com/boards/191336-injustice-2/76382679

    The details are as follows:

    With the leaker claiming the following at the beginning of his 'leak':

    So, what do we make of that?

    For my part, I'm extremely doubtful.

    It's a safe bet that Cassie, Jacqui, Takeda and Kung Jin will all return to story mode at least (and it would be a surprise if at least 3, if not all 4, weren't playable), Kotal Kahn is embedded into the story of MK and the return of Raiden, Scorpion and Sub Zero is as predictable as clockwork (prove me wrong Ed).

    No predictions are made regarding updated designs, with every character suspiciously said to look exactly like their MKX design but more 'badass'. Ahem.

    The two new characters are described as plain in the extreme, and considering that the first new characters revealed in MKX were all extremely eye catching for various reasons (design-wise for Kotal, Ferra/Torr and D'Vorah and surname-wise for Cassie), it would represent a break in tradition for Netherrealm to step away from eye catching new characters.

    It's also worth noting that NRS precedent is not releasing a trailer at E3. It's actually releasing a trailer shortly before E3, with Ed presenting gameplay and a very rough demo at the showpiece event.

    It's also worth noting E3 is still the better part of two months away.

    My verdict:


    Bullshit until proven otherwise. It's almost certainly nonsense made up to sound believable because lying on the internet is how some people get their kicks. Takes all sorts I suppose, but I get mine from yachts, sports cars and supermodels.

    There is one positive thing we can definitely take from this, however.

    Even if the 'leak' is nonsense, as it certainly appears to be.....when supposed leaks about the trailers are starting to show up, you know we're getting close to showtime.


    As always check back to TYM every day for all the latest on whatever NRS have in the pipeline, Mortal Kombat, Injustice and everything NRS!

      This dude is almost certainly lying, but you absolutely do make a trailer 2 months before you're going to release it lmao. How long do you think that takes to model and render? A long time, is what.

      I believe this leak is fake for different reason. I expect the 1st ever trailer for mk11 to be similar to mkx's, Not giving anything away. Just a cinematic of two poster characters fighting with the release year at the end. Maybe this time it's gonna be Kotal Khan fighting Dark Raiden.

      Gamefaqs. Nuf said.
      The new Deadly Alliance of Raiden and Kotal would be dope though.

      NRS NEVER releases a trailer at E3 lol. We always get the trailer before E3. NRS shows gameplay at E3.

      Another thing that seems fishy to me is the mention of showing the PC logo.

      For those who recall, Mortal Kombat X launched on PC along with the console versions and it was a disaster. The PC port had continued issues for well over a year until Warner Brothers Interactive Entertainment hired a higher quality developer (QLOC) to clean up the port and bring the XL content to it.

      Injustice 2 did not launch on PC with the console versions, but was all but stealth released several months later. Apparently there was a quiet Steam announcement about a PC version beta, and the game launched a week later!

      I would suspect the next Mortal Kombat game to launch on PC in a similar fashion to Injustice 2; which would mean no PC logos in any early media if at all.

      Of course, we'll see in time.

      Sounds shady because Sub-Zero and Scorpion aren't fighting each other lol. But I do hope the trailer teaser soon before E3 rumor will happen.
    16. Darth-Nero
      Get out!

      I'm just throwing out unsubstantiated statements like they are facts. Isn't that what this thread is all about?

      I know but I mean for trailer purposes, they love to have Scorpion fighting Sub-Zero but I'm very happy they're allies now.
