Today during Sony Interactive Entertainment's State of Play livestream, developer NetherRealm Studios and publisher Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment revealed a brand-new Mortal Kombat 11 trailer featuring classic Mortal Kombat gameplay and cut-scenes, as well as music from Vince Staples and Ice Cube.

More specifically, the trailer reveals multiple new characters, as well as reveals the younger versions of many characters in the game. For those that don't know: time travel is at the heart of Mortal Kombat 11's story, and it looks like as a result current, older versions of characters will come across, and sometimes fight, their younger versions.
