Mortal Kombat 11's story almost featured alternate realities, a Friday the 13th-inspired approach, and more

Some wild ideas were considered

Mortal Kombat 11 certainly had a fun and engaging story mode to play through, but things almost played out quite differently. Shawn Kittelsen, a writer at NetherRealm Studios revealed that the writing team once considered a story featuring alternate realities.

That's just the start of what was being considered, though. Kittelsen also reveals that they were considering reviving Onaga, along with a story involving Dark Raiden, who was going to try to destroy Netherrealm to protect Earthrealm. There was even consideration of a "Friday the 13th" theme where classic Mortal Kombat characters would be murdered along the way. Finally, another potential story involved Liu Kang and Kung Lao as a pair of street kids that were going up against a corporation headed by Shang Tsung.

The dev team decided to scratch all of those ideas and go with something that picked up more directly from the previous game. This move was made to please fans, as they didn't want to leave them hanging on what happened next.

G Fuel reveals two Mortal Kombat-inspired flavors

Blood and Guts, of course

In a rather odd tie-up, G Fuel and Warner Bros. have announced two Mortal Kombat-inspired flavors joining the G Fuel lineup. Fans can enjoy Scorpion Sting and Ice Shatter flavors, which hopefully taste nothing like anything you'd find in the Mortal Kombat universe. There's also some special bundles for these flavors being offered as well. You can get full details in the blurb below.

"We're honored to team up with Warner Bros. and be a part of the epic 28-year Mortal Kombat franchise that wrote the playbook on fighting games," said G FUEL Founder and CEO, Cliff Morgan. "G FUEL Scorpion Sting and Ice Shatter pay homage to these iconic special moves. We can't wait for our fans to fuel their 'Kombat' with these new game-changing flavors."

G FUEL Scorpion Sting and Ice Shatter will be available to buy for U.S. customers in powdered form in 40-serving tubs and limited-edition collectors boxes, which include one 40-serving tub and one 16 oz shaker cup, at GFUEL.com on January 13th, 2021. Both new flavors will also be available for sale to customers in the U.S. in 16 oz cans on G FUEL's website on February 10th and in select stores throughout the country in mid-February. The G FUEL Scorpion Sting and Ice Shatter tub energy formula is sugar-free and loaded with antioxidants from 18 different fruit extracts. A single serving has only 15 calories and contains 140 mg of caffeine. A single 16 oz can of G FUEL Scorpion Sting and Ice Shatter has zero calories and contains 300 mg of caffeine. Both the tub and can energy formulas contain proprietary energy and focus-enhancing complexes.

Mortal Kombat 11 getting original Mortal Kombat movie skins

An absolute klassic

Looks like the datamined info from Mortal Kombat 11 concerning original Mortal Kombat movie content was spot-on. Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has shared the above image on Twitter, which confirms that skins based on the original Mortal Kombat movie are heading to Mortal Kombat 11. It's likely that these costumes will include the voice samples that were dug up by dataminers, which were recorded by stars from the original movie. Hopefully we get full confirmation of this via a trailer in the near future.
