Titled, “It’s in Our Blood,” the trailer harkens back to the iconic “Mortal Monday” TV commercial for the first Mortal Kombat game in 1993. However, this time WWE legend, turned Hollywood actor, Dave Bautista leads the charge through the city streets. You can watch the new Mortal Kombat 1 trailer for yourself below.
The trailer opens up with Bautista, playing the role of an unusually buff librarian, beginning a charge to awaken those with the spirit of Mortal Kombat. As the trailer progresses, Bautista’s army grows larger, with thousands of people swarming the streets chanting the title of the game.
If this sounds like a familiar premise, you aren’t having Deja vu. A very similar television spot ran in 1993 to promote the original Mortal Kombat’s console port. You can also check that video out for yourself below.
