Dance music has always had a close relationship with video games, after all, electronic music provides the soundtrack, and many games have iconic scores. Few games in history are as iconic as Mortal Kombat. This past Thursday, the first game play trailer was revealed for the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 11, out on April 23.
Mortal Kombat has been in gamers’ lives for more than 25 years, revolutionizing fighting games forever, and becoming one of the most iconic and venerable franchises in the industry. The 1997 film also has a classic dance music soundtrack — dance music is in Mortal Kombat’s DNA. This time the Mortal Kombat team enlisted the help of Dimitri Vegas & Like Mike and Bassjackers who made a new track “You’re Next” for an epic preview of the game.
First off, wow, this game looks AMAZING!! Classic characters like Raiden, Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Baraka unleash absolute carnage upon each other. The fatalities look absolutely brutal (Baraka rips Scorpions face off his skull!), all of the iconic moves are there (Scorpion’s “Get Over Here”, Raiden’s flying bullet) and what better way to unleash some vicious combos on fools than to the trapped out tune from DVLM and Bassjackers. The livestream event that unveiled the gameplay featured a bunch of celebrities and youtubers, as well as a highly anticipated matchup between Dimitri Vegas and Don Diablo. Dimitri got the best of Don and made it all the way to the finals.
