Mortal Kombat trailer: Ah, the ol’ fall-on-a-spike trick

Until we build up to the obligatory Fatality montage video, I suppose NetherRealm Studios wants to kick off the Mortal Kombat marketing machine with word of mouth from old fans who have since dropped off and some subtle — for MK, anyway — trailers.

Holy crap, that dude just got impaled! Oh, but don’t worry, the gore was all shadow-like and mysterious so it’s safe for your children to watch. The game doesn’t even come out until next year, so I’ll happily put up with a slow burn if need be.

And for those wondering about the song featured in this video, it’s Disturbed’s “Another Way to Die.”
