Mortal Kombat 1 Release Date: Officially Announced for September 2023!

The Mortal Kombat 1 game has finally been announced after weeks of official teases and unauthorized rumors, and a brand-new video illuminates its relaunched world.

This upcoming installment of the Mortal Kombat series, featuring well-known characters in a world created by the ascending Fire God Liu Kang, will entirely rework the venerable genre, as implied by Mortal Kombat 11’s narrative climax.

This is a new Mortal Kombat chapter with unique backstories, motivations, designs, and powers for characters including Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Shang Tsung, Johnny Cage, and more. The franchise’s dedication to bloody, gory battles and grisly deths won’t change, as the game’s cinematic trailer makes very obvious.

See the official tweet below:

Favorite fighters will still be able to smoosh villains’ heads, slit their throats, and knife-punch through meat and tissue, despite the tiny change in appearance. More ‘Story Mode’ content will be included in Mortal Kombat 1’s regular gameplay, including an immersive cinematic storyline containing unexpected twists on traditional rivalries and creative backstories for a wide-ranging cast of renowned fighters.
