Although it’s hard to imagine, three weeks have passed since the Mortal Kombat 1 Gameplay Reveal Trailer dominated the Summer Game Fest. The Mortal Kombat 1 Stress Test, which just finished, was a huge success.
Ed Boon has been appearing in Mortal Kombat 1 interview, but as is customary for him, he has been circumspect and evasive in his remarks. He’s given us lots of hints, but we haven’t heard anything fresh and specific regarding Mortal Kombat 1 in a while.
Character profiles have recently been added by Netherrealm to the Mortal Kombat 1 website, providing a little more insight into the history of the game’s characters. The backstories of a few people have undergone some noticeable alterations, and it will be intriguing to see what else has changed under Liu Kang’s New Era. It’s the ideal opportunity to review each Main roster and Kameo roster character since the first Mortal Kombat 1 Kombat Kast will air on July 6. As more kombatants are introduced by Netherrealm, we’ll keep you informed.
Main Game Roasters
Liu Kang, formerly the Chosen One and now the God of Fire Protector of Earthrealm, utilized Kronika’s Hourglass to rewrite history so that everyone would have a brighter future. He now guards Earthrealm with vigilance while enabling individuals who live in the realms to determine their own futures. In the part, Matthew Yang King is coming back.
It’s interesting to note that in the final scene of Aftermath, Liu Kang referred to himself as the God of Fire and Thunder to a Kung Lao. He now uses the title “God of Fire” exclusively.
Since Bi-Han is once again playing the part of Sub-Zero, it seems unnecessary to introduce Elder before Sub-Zero (more on this later). New Age Given that he is currently the Grandmaster of the Lin Kuei, Bi-Han is doing better than he was previously.
Bi-Han appears to have borrowed some strategies from Sektor, based on his bio, a few intros, and parts of his kombat language. Prior to his father’s passing, Bi-Han assumed the position of Grandmaster. Bi-Han, on the other hand, seems to be committing patricide in a similar way to how Sektor killed his father in order to seize control of the Lin Kuei.
The information that Sub-Zero and Scorpion are brothers in the New Era was one of the most stunning alterations to Mortal Kombat 1 that has been released thus far. He and Bi-Han are now friendly, despite the initial misunderstanding over whether Kuai Liang is now Scorpion or if it’s still Hanzo.
The latter is absurd because Bi-Han and Kuai Liang are Chinese and White, while Hanzo is Japanese. However, it is safe to believe Kuai Liang is Scorpion given the bio for the character, Kenshi’s reference of Kuai Liang in an introduction with Liu Kang, and the fact that Sub-Zero and Scorpion appear so similar.
Naturally, Kitana is returning in the New Era. She is being portrayed once more by Kari Wahlgren. Their relationship seems much less likely now that Liu Kang is known as the Keeper of Time and the eternal Protector of Earthrealm.
Not everything is different in her situation with Liu Kang. With Netherrealm’s confirmation that Mileena in the New Era is Kitana’s actual older twin sister, Kitana’s family has expanded by one in the New Era. Kitana acts as Mileena’s dependable bodyguard in the New period, similar to what Jade did for her in the previous period.
Johnny Cage, the surprising protagonist of the NRS reboot trilogy, is back. As Johnny’s renowned voice actor, Andrew Bowen is coming back.
When these well-known kombatants were born has altered significantly over Liu Kang’s New Era. Instead of a man in his mid-50s, Johnny Cage is a man in his prime today. We may anticipate a lot of social media allusions from Johnny Cage, a modern-day millennial.
Fans of the 3D period favorite Kenshi Takahashi will undoubtedly thrilled to see him back because it appears like Kenshi will finally get a chapter in an NRS era Mortal Kombat game.
The new backstory of Kenshi in the New Era seems intriguing. Kenshi is now a Yakuza member, as those who observed his severely tattooed hands in the Gameplayer Reveal trailer undoubtedly already knew. Long ago, the Takahashi family lineage saw a decline. The majority of the Takahashi clan, once among Japan’s most prestigious families, were murdered or dispersed during battle. The surviving members joined the Bakuto, an early incarnation of the Yakuza of today.
Kung Lao, Liu Kang’s closest buddy, has undergone significant change in the New Era. He isn’t a Shaolin anymore. instead, he leads a straightforward farming life in the village of Fengjian. That is, until Earthrealm’s chosen champion, Fire God Liu Kang, hunts out Kung.
Kung Lao isn’t entirely unique. Kung Lao, played by Sunil Malhotra, is back, but he doesn’t look quite as arrogant as his Mortal Kombat 11 counterpart. His biography suggests that he is still seeking honor and a life that is more meaningful than merely surviving.
There is a ton of room for fresh characterization and experimentation with smoke. He was hardly present during the initial NRS era and spent virtually all of the Midway era as the brainwashed Cyber/Noob Smoke. Hopefully Smoke will fare better in the New Era.
After the Lin Kuei massacred his family after they unintentionally trespassed into Lin Kuei territory, New Era Smoke was left an orphan. The Grandmaster reared Smoke alongside his trueborn sons, Sub-Zero and Scorpion, out of embarrassment.
The demigod son of Argus (Rain) makes his fourth straight appearance in Mortal Kombat video games from the NRS era. In the trailer for Lin Kuei, Rain engages Lin Kuei in combat while showcasing his signature water power.
The most intriguing aspect of Rain is his biography. It doesn’t mention Rain’s original ancestry as an Edenian half-god; instead, it labels him as a student of the Imperial School of Sorcery of Outworld. Rain, the High Mage of Outworld, is currently engaging in his regular antics and desiring more power.
The Main Roster and the Kameo Roster are distinct rosters. After choosing their primary fighter, players choose a Kameo fighter.
Some information concerning the Kameo system has already been made public by Netherrealm, including the knowledge that some Main Roster characters, such as Sub-Zero and Scorpion, also serve as Kameo characters and that some Kameo characters would only be available in Story Mode. Characters created by Kameo have a tendency to reference earlier Mortal Kombat iterations, at least so far.
