Mortal Kombat is back. NetherRealm’s great franchise returns with an installment that aims to reboot its immortal legacy. Mortal Kombat 1 takes its first steps under the spotlight with an absolutely spectacular trailer. You can check it out at the bottom of this news. Mark your calendars for September 19, 2023.
The studio is aiming for a soft reboot in which they will reimagine the classic characters of the saga. This “reborn,” as they call it, “ushers in a new era of the iconic franchise with a new fighting system, game modes, and fatalities.” The stakes are high.
The game is being developed in-house by NetherRealms for PS5 and Xbox Series X|S. The PC port (Steam and Epic Games Store) is led by QLOC, while the Nintendo Switch version will come from Shiver Entertainment and Saber Interactive. They are preparing an exclusive beta for the first two systems for all those who reserve the game; they point to August this year, that is, one month before the official release. It is expected to come in three editions, the Standard, Premium, and Kombat Edition, of which there are no images yet.
Mortal Kombat, where did we come from?
Last July 2021, the studio gave a clear warning: they would not be working on any more content for Mortal Kombat 11. The reason was that they wanted to focus on their next project, which we have already looked at today. If you want to make the wait easier, you have the Aftermath Edition of the eleventh installment at your fingertips, a complete revision of the title that takes advantage of the capabilities of the new generation.
Compared to the Basic Edition, Aftermath includes “a few more hours of story and three new characters” in addition to the “friendly friendships” and “four new stages”. As expected, the addition of new fighters is accompanied by a new tower. Sheeva, Fujin, and Robocop all have their own fighting spiral to test their skills in the virtual ring.
