NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. on Monday released the launch trailer for upcoming fighting game Mortal Kombat X. The developer went the extra mile with the video, enlisting the help of System of a Down's Shavo Odadjian, who directed the trailer. It also features the band's iconic "Chop Suey" song.

No Caption Provided

The video highlights Mortal Kombat's numerous returning and new characters, and ends with a particularly brutal Fatality. Make sure to watch through to the end.

A special TV trailer for Mortal Kombat X, which features live-action footage and gameplay, also uses "Chop Suey" to great effect.

The Mortal Kombat X release date is April 14 for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and PC. The Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 editions, however, have been delayed.

ohh **** yes!! ive been waiting for this song to be paired up with a mk trailer. and I like how they fit together so well, not a random heavy metal song thrown in to pump you up, the lyrics and the trailer hint at some probable spoilers in story mode.

I've been an MK fan since MK1. They've had some flops in the series but this one definitely looks promising. Plus I've already had a chance to play MKX at the Sony Playstation Experience. It'll def be worth the buy and I'm glad MK continues to break new ground. My pre-order is set and I'm ready to kick some virtual a$$

MKX might win an Oscar next year for Best Picture, but this is a shitty ass trailer. System of A Down is garbage.

Am I the only one that thinks that Kung Jin would look 10 times better with the black hooded outfit? (i believe it's him watching the portraits of the old champions)


Takeda still looks like an interesting Mavado redesign... i just wish he looked better :(

I think it wasn't cool to bring on the rap intro to the game when it was announced if I'm correct, then this music to continue the action. Good finish

Far from the best trailer I've ever seen but I gotta love System.

Some nicely timed punches with the music but overall is doesn't really sell the game. I don't think anyone buys MK for the story & cinematics.

ROFL at the music. SOaD, bunch of posers. May as well pick an Avril Lavigne song and go with it. At least the game looks good.

I was going to pass on this game, but this trailer just made me reconsider. I also think that "Chop Suey" fits perfectly.

First, I don't see why it's noteworthy to mention that they used a 14 year old song in a trailer.


Second, although I do like SOAD and this song, I don't really feel like it meshes well with the trailer.
