It may be March, but it's not getting any warmer out there despite what that groundhog said last month. Who cares? There is plenty of stuff you can do inside, and so many gaming goodies to read about before they come out. This week we have the return of an awesome female character in Mortal Kombat 11 and a look at the story, as well as some info on the Nintendo Labo VR Kit. Who needs sunshine and vitamin D? Here is your Gamegrrl news for the week ending March 9.

This week, we got not only a story trailer for Mortal Kombat 11, but we saw Cassie Cage’s reveal trailer as well. If you don’t know her, she’s the daughter of Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage. She kicks some serious ass, and her fatality is, well, not good for those with delicate parts between their legs. So far we’ve learned about Sonya, Johnny, new fighter Geras, Kronika, the woman running the show, Baraka, Raiden, Skarlet, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kano, Kabal, D’Vorah and Jade.

“Tonight marks the beginning of the cleansing.” Today we have a new trailer for Rage 2 — Wasteland Superhero and it’s crazy. Here are the details for the Bethesda game, which will be out on May 14, 2019. “You’re not just Walker, the last Ranger. You’re a Wasteland Superhero! Using your arsenal of powerful weapons and hi-tech nanotrite abilities, you’re going to wreak havoc on the baddies lurking throughout RAGE 2. While they are super powerful on their own, you’ll get maximum damage by pairing those weapons and abilities for crazy combos that will knock the socks off* (*absolutely obliterate) anyone that stands in your way. The Authority doesn’t stand a chance!”

This week we also got a look at the making of Cyberpunk 2077, an open-world RPG from CD Projekt Red. You can check it out above. 

Here is the info for you. “Night City, California. Year 2077. The world is broken. MegaCorps manage every aspect of life from the top floors of their sky-scraping fortresses. Down below, the streets are run by drug pushing gangs, tech hustlers, and illegal braindance slingers. The in-between is where decadence, sex and pop culture mix with violent crime, extreme poverty and the unattainable promise of the American Dream.

“You are V, a cyberpunk. In a world of cyberenhanced street warriors, tech-savvy netrunners and corporate life-hackers, today is your first step to becoming an urban legend.
