With the rebooted Mortal Kombat movie fast approaching its release on HBO Max, what better time than now to catch up on the surprisingly dense lore of the MK universe. This is Mortal Kombat’s story, explained in just 10 minutes.

This is an updated version of our previous Mortal Kombat in 7 Minutes video, which covered the events from the very first Mortal Kombat all the way to Mortal Kombat X. This update now includes the events of both Mortal Kombat 11 and the Aftermath expansion, along with some of the big sweeping changes made to the overall story introduced in those games. By the very nature of this video we skim over some events, but by and large, if you’re looking for a primer on Mortal Kombat’s story to prep you for the upcoming movie, this video will talk all about what the Mortal Kombat tournament is, how Liu Kang always seems to win it, and why you never want to mess with Raiden, Sub-Zero, Scorpion, or the rules of Mortal Kombat
