Mortal Kombat: Shang Tsung Story Trailer Released

NetherRealm Studios just released an all new character trailer detailing Shang Tsung’s backstory. This pretty much entails Shang Tsung opening a portal to Shao Kahn’s realm, only to basically become his bitch in exchange for enhanced magical abilities. He then hosts all the Mortal Kombat tournaments that are stacked in Shao Kahn’s favor in order to win him more souls or something of that matter. It’s not like the story was ever a selling point of Mortal Kombat anyway, but it’s good that they’re attempting. If only Shao Kahn himself was a playable character…

Check out the trailer for an epic narration of Shang Tsung’s backstory as well as some great footage of Shang Tsung busting Johnny Cage’s groin and otherwise dismembering him.

Mortal Kombat will be released on April 19th and is shaping up to be a fantastic game from the footage I’ve seen as well as my personal experience trying out the game.
