Gameplay Trailer for Mortal Kombat 1 Reveals Incoming Characters

NetherRealm is turning the clock backwards on Mortal Kombat by having Liu Kang reset the timeline, and this year will see the release of Mortal Kombat 1.

Just in, we have a new gameplay trailer for the game, and it reveals even more returning characters from the klassic titles in the franchise including Jax, Johnny Cage, Kano, and Kenshi. Check this out:

I’ll admit, the marketing does seem kind of confused, with the white tranquillity theme being mixed together with all the blood and gore, but I guess it’s an interesting, different direction as previous MK games have always had shifting tones of dark fantasy.

Other characters that appear, but don’t get the spotlight include Sonya Blade, Goro, and Stryker. While the characters have changed throughout the years, it looks like the game will be embracing their original appearance from the first games.

I guess it’s also worth mentioning that the game will now be taking a leaf out of Marvel vs. Capcom’s book and will be allowing players to call in assists from other characters. I guess it adds to the theme of ‘friendship’ that Liu Kang seems to be fostering, what with the pairings of Raiden and Kung Lao, Scorpion and Sub-Zero, as well as Kitana and Mileena.

It’s In Our Blood. Discover a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe created by Fire God Liu Kang. Mortal Kombat 1 ushers in a new era of the iconic franchise with a new fighting system, game modes, and Fatalities!

Mortal Kombat 1 launches on Sept. 19 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
