Was also revealed there's going to be an assist system from "kameo" fighters, who aren't on the playable roster.

I was kind of hoping the ending of aftermath combined with the "1" indicated that this would be about the very first mortal kombat tournament with the great Kung Lao. Given the long lived nature of some characters you could have returning fighters while expanding on that oft referenced but little known era from the lore.

Isn't the case, but I'm still looking forward to where they take things.

Also lots of speculation that there will be tag mechanics, based on everyone in the trailer appearing in pairs.

Maybe a gameplay trailer at the upcoming sony show.

So is this new game meant to be the Mortal Kombat version of the Legend of Zelda split timeline for over-arching series storyline?

If its not another retelling of the first tournament or potentially related to it, then they should have called it something else besides MK 1.

It is a retelling of the first game, difference being its in the new timeline shaped by Liu Kang so things will play out differently.

Hopefully this time the retelling goes along a lot better than what happened with Mortal Kombat 9's story retelling that boiled down to Raiden being a giant dumbass over his continued mistakes and bad decisions throughout it.

If there was a video game version of Sideshow Bob continually stepping on rakes in a field, Raiden in MK9 would be it.

Will be interesting to see what Raiden plays like now, since he's been reborn as a mortal man, and isn't the God of thunder anymore.

I remember them pulling a similar idea off in Mortal Kombat 9 with the cyber-ninjas before they were cyber-ninjas. Because all the best ninjas wear flamethrowing equipment on them.

Apparently if the leaks are True, we are getting Peacemaker, Homelander and Omni-Man as DLC.

I don't want any more non-MK "guests". I had my fill of that already. If they just want to show off all the properties they have or can get, just do a different game.

Yeah it was cool to see them but I can't think of a guest character I played as much as the regular cast. Maybe Predator.

For those interested, pre-orders for the Premium and Kollector's Edition includes an alt costume Jean-Claude Van Damme skin for Johnny Cage among the goodies.

In regards to MK history, Van Damme was the original inspiration for the design and chatterer of Cage.

Following the exciting reveal of Mortal Kombat 1 this morning, Warner Bros. Interactive and NetherRealm Studios has released details of the three pre-order editions that will be made available for purchase from tomorrow, May 19.

Mortal Kombat 1 will be made available in three formats, as detailed below. All pre-orders include Shang Tsung as a playable kombatant.

Mortal Kombat 1 Standard Edition will be available physically and digitally for $69.99 (USD) on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC, including Steam and Epic Games Store.

Mortal Kombat 1 Premium Edition will be available physically and digitally for $109.99 on PS5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC (Steam/EGS) and will include the first Kombat Pack, early access to the game beginning Sept. 14, and 1,250 Dragon Krystals (in-game currency). The Kombat Pack will feature a Johnny Cage character skin with the likeness of famed actor and martial artist, Jean-Claude Van Damme (usable at launch), early access to six DLC characters (available post-launch), and five new Kameo Fighters (available post-launch).

Mortal Kombat 1 Kollector’s Edition will be available physically at select retailers for $249.99 on PS5 and Xbox Series X|S only and will include all Premium Edition content, and early access, along with a 16.5-inch Liu Kang sculpture designed by COARSE and a similarly inspired Liu Kang in-game character skin. Also included are three exclusive art prints, steel casing, and a total of 2,700 Dragon Krystals.

As dedicated MK fans will know, Jean Claude Van Damme was the original inspiration for Johnny Cage, given that Midway had initially imagined Mortal Kombat as a fighting game that would actually star the Muscles from Brussels (as we all called him back then). These listings all give our first confirmation of post-release DLC characters, additional Kamoe Fighters for MK1‘s assist system, and, of course, in-game currency.

Only if its a Kancer type.

Anything thing else, all it cures is a lighter wallet.

This idea has always intrigued me. For starters, it'd be nice to once again get a game that's about the actual God damn Mortal Kombat tournament, like the original and part of the reboot title. Second, that's an area of the lore that hasn't really been fleshed out and could be ripe for the picking. Who else did the Great Kung Lao fight alongside? How was the meeting between Shang Tsung and Shao Kahn like? How far back does something like the Black Dragon go, if at all? What did the realms look like in those days? You're talking about a 500 year difference so there's plenty of room for exploration. The only drawbacks I can see coming from this idea is that certain popular characters like Scorpion can't be part of it. MAYBE a version of Sub-Zero with the explanation that it's some kind of ancestor, seeing as how the powers are supposed to be part of a lineage?

It's an interesting concept. I know the Conquest television show was sort of doing this, but it was done during a time when a lot of knowns from today were, well, unknown. Thus you got shit like Noob Saibot popping up from ooze or whatever the fuck.

You couldn't have scorpion, but you could have a similar entity with fire powers. Similarly, you could have a shirai ryu clan member in the game to use the chain spear stuff.

For sure you could have these guys:

Shang Tsung
Great Kung Lao
Raiden
Reptile
Kitana (no Mileena, though, I think? It's kind of murky as to when she was created in the story. The reboot makes it seem like it just happened right then and there.)
Jade
Goro
Kintaro (Maybe? They don't really say how old he is)
Quan Chi
Tanya
Chameleon/Khameleon

Maybe Baraka? Again, they never make it clear how old he is or how long a lifespan Tarkatans have. The rest of the roster can be filled out with "new" characters, such as it is.

Instead of baraka maybe a female tarkatan.

Fuck, now I'm gonna go to fighter's generation and look up who could potentially appear in this nonexistent game.

They really need to be authentic about this and have both Kitana and Jade played by the same chick who did Mileena.

Oddly enough Kitana has a different actress from Mileena despite Mileena being a clone.

I honestly dont think these games compete with one another all that much. The reason MK is a sales juggernaut is because of the chracters, story, and gore. If it happens to be a good fighter thats just a plus. MK is off doing its own thing. If MK competes with any game in sales its Tekken.

In any case their previous sales are the real competition:

MK11 - 12 million +

Tekken 7 - 10 million +

SF 5 - 6 Million +

SF 6 i think will easily outsell its predecessor. 5 was a console exclusive and the others werent (although the xbone was a sales failure in its own right so its not much of a factor.) 5 was profitable due to post launch monetizing and i dont think 6 will need it (but it will do it.) All 3 though sold outrageously well and topping their last entries is gojng to be tough as they were all the best selling games of their franchises save SF5 that essentially tied SF2.

I love how the launch combos have forward pressure. Chasing down the opponent in the air looks visually satisfying

I haven't went down the reddit rabbit holes and such yet...but

I think Fire God Kang's perfect timeline cannot stop the inevitable. Some kind of timeline fusion (example: Mileena's "disease").

I'll just be happy with the break from the Kombat Kids.

This might be the best Johnny yet.
