Warner Bros. Games and NetherRealm Studios have shared another trailer for Rain in Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate, who will also be available as part of Kombat Pack 2 in the base game. Watch it below.

We posted the original gameplay trailer shared for Rain a few days ago, which can be seen here.

Scott Hawkins, head of the developer relations team at Nintendo of America, delivered a talk during BIG Digital 2020. His presentation was primarily aimed at studios potentially interested in bringing their games to Switch, but he also shared an interesting anecdote about Mortal Kombat 11.

We don’t know who exactly this person was, but they were “concerned because it’s a mature-rated title that it wouldn’t be Nintendo-friendly.” Mortal Kombat 11 was ultimately “a big success” on Switch, so Hawkins used this story to demonstrate that you can find “an audience for lots of different types of content on the platform”.

Hawkins’ full comments are as follows:

Mortal Kombat 11 recently received its Aftermath expansion. But this month, Warner Bros. will be distributing the Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection at retail, which includes everything released for the game so far. The thing is, it doesn’t look like you’ll actually be getting a cartridge.

That news comes straight from an Amazon listing. The game’s boxart has been updated with a label clearly stating that there’s no game card included. And if you needed any further confirmation, the listing on Amazon Canada states outright that you’ll only be getting a code in the box.

If you do want to pick up Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection, you’ll be able to do so on June 16.

Tying in with the new Aftermath expansion, Mortal Kombat 11 has received a free update for all players. Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios have now shared the full patch notes.
