Shao Kahn Reigns Supreme In The Latest Mortal Kombat 11 Character Trailer

The Outworld’s brutal overlord Shao Kahn stomps loudly and carries a big hammer


With the release of Mortal Kombat 11 just days away, NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have released a new trailer showcasing Outworld Emperor Shao Kahn in all of his glory.

In the latest footage, the mighty tyrant, who first appeared in Mortal Kombat II, is seen pummeling his opponents with his signature war hammer and spear. Attacking with relentless ferocity, his fierce blows pack a serious punch. For his Fatal Blow, Shao Kahn furiously slashes into the God of Thunder Raiden with his spear before launching into the air and skewering him like a shish kebab. As gruesome as that sounds, it’s nothing compared to the big guy’s fatality, where he swings his massive hammer like a comically large golf club into the top of a downed opponent’s head so hard that their skull launches from their rear end. Fore!

Watch Shaoh Kahn in action in the trailer below:

Just a friendly heads up, Shao Kahn is available as a pre-order bonus for Mortal Kombat 11. That said, if you want to add this iconic villain to the game’s roster, you might want to secure your copy ahead of the game’s April 23rd release on the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Switch, and PC.

So, what do you think of the look of Shao Kahn? Do you look forward to beating your adversaries to a pulp with that giant hammer when Mortal Kombat 11 releases next week? Sound off in the comments and let us know.
