“A Matter of Time.”
To coincide with the recent release of Mortal Kombat 11, a behind-the-scenes video of the fighting game’s main theme has been uploaded to the official Mortal Kombat YouTube channel.
As composer Will Roget leads his orchestra through a recording session of Mortal Kombat 11′s main theme, performers also include percussionist Doug Perry and cellist Sebastian Freji.
Speaking back in December not long after the announcement that Roget would be writing the game’s cinematic soundtrack, the composer took to Twitter to express his joy and how the project was a “dream come true”.
He said: “… the [Mortal Kombat] franchise has been a huge part of my life since I was 10 and introduced me to arcade games, game music, and the martial arts.”
In a separate tweet, Roget clarified that all the main themes, UI music, and the story mode score were written by himself, with dynamic in-round fight music written by Nathan Grigg.
In case you missed it, Mortal Kombat 11′s launch trailer featured the iconic “Techno Syndrome” track by Dimitri Vegas and 2WEI which should be recognisable to fans of the franchise.
Developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment, Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Windows.
