Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have put up a new story trailer for Mortal Kombat X, which confirms that characters from the Mortal Kombat X comics will be in the game.
Netherrealm Studios will set Mortal Kombat X immediately after the events of the previous game, and then transition the story 25 years into the future, as a way to introduce a whole new generation of characters to the franchise. To that end, they’ll be bringing Jacqueline “Jacqui” Briggs, daughter of Jax Briggs and friend of Cassie Cage; Takashi Takeda, son of Kenshi and pupil of Hanzo; and Kung Jin, Kung Lao’s descendant, to the fighting game’s roster.
We glimpse Rain and Sindel in the video, too, although what this means is unknown.
Mortal Kombat X launches worldwide on April 14, on the PC, Playstation 4, Playstation 3, Xbox One, and Xbox 360.
