New Mortal Kombat Trailer is Disturbed

Continuing the increasingly popular trend of video game and music cross promotion, Warner Bros. and NetherRealm Studios have unveiled a new “Shadow” trailer for their upcoming PS3 and Xbox 360 Mortal Kombat reboot. A trailer promoting the single “Another Way to Die” from rock band Disturbed’s new album, Asylum.

Don’t care much for the song myself, but the title and lyrics certainly fit the Mortal Kombat motif, and the whole “shadow boxing” style of the trailer is pretty damn cool. How do you feel about the sudden rise of game companies getting bands and rappers to hock their albums in trailers?
