Mortal Kombat 1’s new trailer brings familiar faces rejoining the game's roster

Let the kombat begin!

Get ready to enter the arena of bone-crushing battles and outrageous fatalities, as NetherRealm Studios drops a brand-new trailer for Mortal Kombat 1, revealing a bunch of characters that will be throwing punches and spilling blood in the game.

The spotlight shines on Smoke and Rain, two familiar faces from the Mortal Kombat series. Smoke, known for his elusive nature and affinity for smoke (shocking, right?), finally steps into the limelight after a history of being an unlockable secret character. Meanwhile, Rain originally pulled a prank on players in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 by pretending to be unlockable before actually becoming a playable character. As a half-god with water and lightning powers, he gives Scorpion a taste of his watery wrath in the trailer.

But wait, there's more! The trailer also introduces four new Kameo Fighters: Sektor, Cyrax, Frost, and even the iconic Scorpion himself, reimagined in a powerful form. These fighters bring a fresh twist to the gameplay, adding support moves that will undoubtedly spice up the already intense battles.

In the trailer, we witness a thrilling escapade with Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Smoke infiltrating a compound. Of course, being Mortal Kombat, there's no shortage of gore, with Smoke delivering a particularly gruesome fatality that will make you cringe and giggle simultaneously.

The release of Mortal Kombat 1 is set for September 19, gracing PC, PS5, Xbox Series X/S, and Nintendo Switch. So mark your calendars, sharpen your fatalities, and brace yourself for a wild ride in the revamped Mortal Kombat Universe. It's going to be a blood-soaked, bone-crunching extravaganza that will leave you wanting more.
