The match will be the ‘WAP’ rapper’s second recent collaboration with the Mortal Kombat franchise. As a longtime fan of the series, Megan The Stallion cosplayed as her favourite character Mileena for a Mortal Kombat 11 ad in November, ahead of the Kombat Pack 2 release. The Kombat Pack included three characters – Mileena, John Rambo and Rain.

The franchise has also collaborated with other musicians in the past. Floridian metal band Trivium premiered their 2020 track ‘Scattering The Ashes’ via a Spawn trailer for the game. In 2018, Mortal Kombat also premiered rapper 21 Savage’s ‘Immortal’ through another trailer.

Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate released in November last year. The game is a bundle comprising of the base game, the first Kombat pack and the Aftermath DLC. It also features graphical improvements to take advantage of next-gen systems’ increased capabilities such as 4K resolution, enhanced visuals, improved loading times and cross-gen features for select modes.

In late November, a player cracked Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon’s easter egg. Boon had previously suggested that a flying meteor that can be spotted inside the Towers Of Times mode held an intriguing secret. A YouTuber, known as TheThiny, released a video cracking the code, unveiling a new Tower.
