Mortal Kombat 11 Officially Announced for Next April, Will be on Switch

The latest in the venerable fighting game series will be out sooner than you think.

Mortal Kombat 11 has been officially announced, and it will be out extremely soon. Just a few months, in fact.

Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon took the stage at The Game Awards to hand out the award for Best Sports/Racing Game. But before he could announce the nominations, the video cut to the trailer you see below.

In true Mortal Kombat style, it's crazy gory, with decapitations and all the rest. But it also has a cartoonier look that perhaps won't hit quite as hard as its gruesome predecessor.

Mortal Kombat's last foray was 2015's Mortal Kombat X, which we gave a 4 out of 5 in our review. The venerable fighting series just keeps trucking right along.

Expect Mortal Kombat 11 on all of the usual platforms, including Switch. A community event is January 17, with a release date set for April 23.
