The epic saga continues! NetherRealm Studios announced today that Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will be launching on all systems, including the Nintendo Switch, on May 26th. Here is Nintendo’s tweet about the announcement;
The tweet also links the full trailer as well. You can check out the full reveal trailer below.
In the reveal, we have learned a lot of new details about the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath story expansion. This epilogue will follow Fire God Liu Kang, who has to forge a new timeline after the events of Mortal Kombat 11. It seems like the unpredictable Shang Tsung will be making his debut in the Mortal Kombat 11 story as an untrustworthy asset to help bring an end to the current tyranny and open up a new future for the universe.
The Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath expansion also includes three new characters, Sheeva and Fujin from previous games and RoboCop, who is joining the roster for the first time. All three characters look like a lot of fun, and it will be quite interesting to see how RoboCop blends in with the bizarre world that NetherRealm has created.
One of the cool details about RoboCop is that he is voiced by Peter Weller, the actor who actually played RoboCop in the original movies from 1987 and 1990. It is this kind of attention to detail that helps immerse these outside characters into the wacky and wild world of Mortal Kombat.
The expansion launches digitally on May 26th on the Nintendo Switch eShop, and it will cost a whopping $40US. For those who own the game but are not willing to shell up the cash, there is some good news! There will be some free konent for those who already own the game, including a couple old-school stages and Friendships, the nicer way to finish a bloody match without tearing your opponent apart.
That is it for this news announcement! What do you think of this Mortal Kombat 11 expansion? Are you interested in checking it out, or will you just try the free konent? Let us know in the comments below, and thank you always for visiting SwitchWatch.co.uk. Happy gaming, everyone.
