Additional Mortal Kombat 1 information has been supplied by Jez Corden of Windows Central based on his sources. The game will be a reboot, and Corden claims that Peacemaker will be included in the Character Pass. September is the presently set goal for the release month.
The title of the upcoming fighting game from NetherRealm is Mortal Kombat 1, according to renowned leaker billbil-kun, who recently made the announcement on Twitter.
Additionally, the leaker disclosed pricing details and supported platforms. Old gaming platforms like the PlayStation 4 and Xbox One are being abandoned by Mortal Kombat 1, however the Nintendo Switch is still supported. As with other games before, this most likely suggests that it will be supported through the cloud; if it were a native version, there would have been no justification for not also releasing the game for PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
The following are the pricing details:
- Standard: 69.99$ (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X) / 59.99$ (Nintendo Switch)
- Premium: 109.99$
- Kollector’s: 249.99$ (PlayStation 5, Xbox Series S|X)
The Kollector’s Edition is only available in physical form; it is not compatible with the Nintendo Switch.
- Kollector’s Edition (Physical only, not available for Nintendo Switch)
Given that Warner Bros. Discovery previously referred to the game as Mortal Kombat 12 in an earnings call, the rumoured title change is intriguing. Was that an error, or did the designers have a change of heart?
The devs have been hinting at a forthcoming revelation, so we should learn a lot more shortly. The new game is reportedly going to be showcased by NetherRealm and Warner Bros. Games during the forthcoming PlayStation Showcase, which is reportedly going to happen the week of May 25th, according to Jeff Grubb’s sources.
Except for the fact that Mortal Kombat 1 will be supported even longer than Mortal Kombat 11 and that its release is scheduled for 2023, not much is known about it at this time.
Because the previous installment sold more than 15 million units worldwide, NetherRealm delayed starting work on the next Injustice game. In Nathan Birch’s review for Wccftech, Mortal Kombat 11 received an 8.5 out of 10 rating.
Mortal Kombat 11 is a top-notch fighting game experience with dependable core mechanics, eye-catching production qualities, and a plot that fits right in with the season’s greatest blockbusters. Of course, the game also has some shortcomings associated with high-budget game development, such as tedious customisation and tacked-on microtransactions, but most of that stuff is unnecessary. Mortal Kombat’s bloody heart is still beating strongly beneath the triple-A fat.
It’s undoubtedly never been a better moment to be a fighting game enthusiast with the release of Street Fighter 6, Mortal Kombat 1, and Tekken 8 in the near future.
