GameSpot just posted Warner Bros's first official Mortal Kombat (2011) TV commercial. It includes the first time seeing the older Shang Tsung in-battle as well as a new Reptile theme from the Mortal Kombat: Songs Inspired By Warriors album. You can see it embedded below:



Then there is also this GameStop TV spot that started making the rounds this morning to promote gamers to pre-order the game from them. This is their second promotional video for the game, the first was the hilarious Gamestop WE KARE video.



Since the game is due out soon, I have a feeling these wont be the last of the ads we'll be seeing for the game. Thanks to Kilmansky for the heads up on the new commercial.

Anyone noticed that, when Dan Forden said "Toasty", the video showed a woman silhouete in shadows ? Maybe Skarlet ? and maybe Toasty is the trick to make her appear in the game ?

Wow! they're not including Jax's big foot fatality, but insead he kicks the oponent's head off. Kool!

....Sigh..... Anyway. That was AMAZING. Especially the music. Maybe Scorpion's theme? An old Shang Tsung looks great. He could have been a little scarier, though. He was terrifying in MK1.

DAMN! Jax's fatality looks CRAZY! Old Shang Tsung looks crazy, I am totally psyched.

Its already been announced that that theme is reptile's by Skrillex

Notice how the Gamestop Pre-Order bonus commercial said UNLOCK the Skin and Fatality. This means its all gonna be on the disc for sure.

It could actually .

How about if the elderly Shang Tsung is just a win pose he turns old? but hope its an alternative costume..

Ah shit. I thought it was different. Couldn't tell. When I heard Reptile's it was super poor quality.

I love the Gamestop commerical. The ending is funny, "Gets them everytime".

That's way Jax is going to be my star player can't wait to kick fools heads off. Old shang was moving like a young man from the quick glimpse I saw. This game is going to be sweet.

Is it wrong that the part of these commercials that made me the happiest was finally hearing Reptile's Theme in higher quality? That's the greatest song ever, no joke.
March 22nd, 2011 10:06 PM CST - MS3
Skrillex !!
March 22nd, 2011 10:37 PM CST - Glamador
Hey hey HEY HEY! Scorpion's eyes are supposed to be WHITE. WHITE! Dammit NRS...these are the kinds of details I expected you to get right.... His eyes were white in the renders!
March 22nd, 2011 10:41 PM CST - AlistairWonderland
Toasty!
March 22nd, 2011 10:52 PM CST - Nasty_Freak
Nice! I'd want to play the actual game soon! I'm glad I have the demo.
March 22nd, 2011 11:06 PM CST - GEO9875
MMM... In Scorp Video Millena's clothes look a little odd, she's wearing more clothes down in this vid that on the renders . Problably a little censored? Check at 0:07 PS: YYYYYYEEEAAAHHH!!! OLD SHANG TSUNG IS BAACKK!!!

"a gamestop exclusive when you pre order"?? I don't plan on pre ordering from gamestop, does that mean I don't get to see his classic skin or fatality?
March 22nd, 2011 11:15 PM CST - MAPS
Oh man, Jax's second fatality looks like it's gonna be nice. But the name for it sucks balls though (You're Soccer). Would've been better if it was named after American Football, because he could have done the field goal motion after it.

That's the music for it? In that case Reptile's and Mileena's theme sound the best so far.
March 23rd, 2011 12:00 AM CST - Korlay
was that The Tower stage at 0:03 ?

I don't like the fact that his neck is just bare vertebrae; makes him look weak.

I have to agree. Reptile's Theme is a jam. I think it might just be better than Mileena's Theme.

Oh god Reptiles Theme is absolutley BANGING! Skrillex did a great job on that one, congrats NRS you know your stuff when it comes to Electronica! Advertisement is sick, man If they get Prime Time slots then Mortal Kombat's just going to go through the roof, I've seen alot of video game advertisements and there's a few that actually would make me want to go out and buy a game, this ad does it justice.
March 23rd, 2011 8:47 AM CST - VictorMefer
Now that we've seen old Shang's face closely, I think he looks awesome! Glad his old version is an alt costume, I'm certainly gonna wear it. And Reptile's theme is sick! In a good way. I loved the first video, finally a look at the Tower, one of my favorite stages. Turned out it really is that leaked Evil Monastery, I was thinking it could be just the place we first see Kitana in MKSM. And Shao Kahn's Throne Room is also very nice!

Reptile's theme is one badass piece of music. WOW.

I'm still watching that ad like twenty times a day just for that little piece of music. I'm a sad case, I am.

This thread has slowly morphed into the "Reptile's Theme is the Greatest Song EVAR!!!!!!1!!11one" thread.

im pre-ordering from gamestop but im hoping the ones like subzero and ermac will be available via dlc later. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8IcafH3PWU0 and in that link you can see a challenge in the challenge tower where you play as both sub zero and scorpion in their classic costumes.
March 30th, 2011 8:48 PM CST - Bruzzrad
Gamestop has the good ones. I got the Kollectors Edition as well, so I've got Ermac and Scorpion. I don't know who my first tag team will be, Klassic Ermac/Scorpion or Noob/Ermac. SO HARD TO CHOOSE! (And the Gamestop trailer was hilarious.)
