With the release of the new Mortal Kombat game only two weeks away I couldn't be more excited! Wait, what's that? NeatherRealm Studios have released a video showing off the evil wizard Shang Tsung's moves and going into his backstory. Hmm, I guess I can get more excited!
The trailer charts Shang Tsung's discovery of Outworld, thanks to his magical abilities, where he quickly pledged his allegiance to Shao Kahn, and then proceeded to do everything in his power to make sure that Outworld would reign supreme whilst he was hosting the Mortal Kombat tournament.
It also shows his lust for victory at all costs and he's definitely not afraid to unleash his terrible tricks on an unsuspecting foe, like the unfortunate Johnny Cage, who takes a magnificent beating before being assaulted by conjured skulls, and eventually loses his soul thanks to Shang Tsung's signature move.
The scary sorcerer also seems to have regained his old shape shifting powers, which were missing from some of the previous MK games, and I'm assuming this means that he'll be able to mirror his opponents moves as well.
Finally, as if you didn't already know that Shang Tsung's a man you wouldn't want to mess with, you can observe one of his fatalities, where he takes control of his opponent and causes them to rip their own head off! Ouch!
