Mortal Kombat Epic New Trailer Fuels Pure Nostalgia

Those of us old enough to remember the original, and now iconic, 1993 Mortal Kombat advert got a pleasant surprise today as Warner Bros. Games debuted a new live-action trailer for Mortal Kombat 1, featuring Actor and producer Dave Bautista.

Titled, It’s In Our Blood, the new trailer pays homage to the “Mortal Monday” commercial that appeared on TV screens 30 years ago. Video-games at the time were still very much a fringe hobby, so seeing Mortal Kombat advertised on TV was pretty awesome.

In the trailer players see Dave Bautista reaching out to everyday average folk, empowering them to bring the fight to the world of Mortal Kombat.

I vividly remember the original Mortal Monday commercial, especially the iconic scream, That’s what started my journey as a fan of Mortal Kombat, which continues to this day 30 years later. I’m very thrilled and honored to be a part of the game’s legacy.Dave Bautista

The original Mortal Monday commercial earmarked the beginning of our journey into making games for home gaming systems. It’s amazing to pay homage to such a memorable moment in Mortal Kombat history as we get ready to launch our newest game, Mortal Kombat 1.Ed Boon, Chief Creative Officer, NetherRealm Studios and Co-Creator of Mortal Kombat
