These days, when when you think of Unreal Engine games, Unreal Engine 4 comes to mind. However, that isn’t the case with Mortal Kombat 11.

According to NetherRealm Studios graphics programming lead Jon Greenberg, Mortal Kombat 11 is built on a custom version of Unreal Engine 3. Greenberg added that the company’s version of the tech “is radically different from Epic’s at this point.”

Switch works well with Unreal Engine 4, but it isn’t often that we seen Unreal Engine 3-developed titles on the system. Rocket League is one example of this, which required custom work to make possible.


During today’s Mortal Kombat 11 broadcast, a new trailer was shown for Cassie Cage. On top of that, fans were treated to some Kano gameplay. We have the character trailer below in addition to a full recording of the presentation.

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios have readied a brand new story trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. We have that below, along with plenty of footage from the fighter.

The next Mortal Kombat character has been revealed. Johnny Cage, who has been appearing since the series first began, is joining the roster.

Here’s the trailer for Johnny Cage:

Mortal Kombat 11 will be getting another live stream later today where even more news about the game is expected.

Mortal Kombat 11 revealed its latest character during a live stream today. Jade, who first appeared in the series’ second entry, is now confirmed.

And today’s live stream event:

It didn’t take long for Mortal Kombat 11 to reveal its next character. Just shortly after the announcement of Kabal, we now know that D’Vorah will also be included.

Thus far we haven’t really seen much of D’Vorah in Mortal Kombat 11. When we have her character trailer, we’ll share it on the site.

Warner Bros. and NetherRealm have pulled back the curtain on another character for Mortal Kombat 11. Kabal has joined the roster, and we have his trailer below. The character first appeared in Mortal Kombat 3.

Other playable characters in Mortal Kombat 11 include Baraka, Geras, Kano, Kabal, Raiden, Scorpion, Shao Kahn, Skarlet, Sonya Blade, and Sub-Zero.


Kano is joining the Mortal Kombat 11 roster, Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios have announced. He has appeared since the series’ first entry in 1992.

Baraka, Geras, Raiden, Scorpion, Shao Kahn, Skarlet, Sonya Blade, and Sub-Zero were previously revealed for Mortal Kombat 11. More characters will be shared before launch on April 23.


Mortal Kombat 11 launches on April 23. If you’re in Europe, however, that might be a different story.

There’s been a lot of speculation surrounding Mortal Kombat 11’s Switch launch in Europe. We’ve been trying to hold off on posting about it until Warner Bros. comments on the situation, but thus far, they haven’t done so. In the meantime, a number of retailers have come forward listing a May 10 release date – including the Nintendo UK store. The Switch version of Mortal Kombat 11 is still on track for April 23 in the states, though for whatever reason, that doesn’t appear to be the case for PAL regions.

Pre-orders are open for Mortal Kombat 11 on the Nintendo UK store here. Bundles with Pixel Pals Lamps are also available.

Mortal Kombat 11 might be one of the more surprising third-party Switch announcements in recent memory. The series has been absent on Nintendo platforms for well over a decade, as Armageddon came to Wii back in 2007.

Mortal Kombat 11 producer Trevor Traub was recently asked about the Switch version, to which he stated:
