Une fuite de Mortal Kombat 1 révèle des détails choquants

Mortal Kombat 1 marks the start of a new era for the fighting game franchise. With a redefined universe led by the Fire God Liu Kang, this new era promises a refreshed cast of characters, including fan favorites like Scorpion and Sub-Zero. While Ed Boon has teased some Mortal Kombat 4 callbacks, we still have to find out who will appear in the upcoming game besides the usual characters. However, a leak may have just changed the situation by revealing 19 characters who would be part of the Mortal Kombat 1 roster.

RELIEF: Confirmed! Mortal Kombat 1 will not feature an important character from the film

Over on r/GamingLeaksAndRumours, Reddit user Youngstown_Mafia recently shared the rumored playable character roster with 19 confirmed characters. These characters are a mix of already confirmed Fighters and newly revealed names from the franchise's illustrious history.

Fresh meat for the meat grinder

The leak claims that the following fighters make up most of the roster:

  • Havik
  • Reiko
  • Nitara
  • Li Mei
  • Ashra
  • Sub-Zero
  • Scorpio
  • Smoke
  • Reptile
  • Liu Kang
  • Kung Lao
  • Raiden
  • Shang Tsung
  • Kitana
  • Mileena
  • Tanya
  • Sindel
  • Johnny Cage
  • Kenshi

Fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise are eagerly awaiting the release of the latest installment, and if the leaked list is anything to go by, they won't be disappointed. Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon recently hinted that MK4 fighters like Reptile and Reiko would appear in the upcoming game, and both of these fan favorites are featured in the leak.

Surprisingly, the leak excludes confirmed characters Jax and Kano, while hinting that long-running characters like Smoke and Sindel will be returning.

Other notable characters include Nitara, the blood-sucking vampire from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance; Havik, the Cleric of Chaos from Mortal Kombat: Deception; and Outworld warrior Lin Mei, last seen in Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. Ashrah (a demon from the Netherrealm) is also expected to return in the final installment.

As you probably already know, it's always best to take information leaks with a grain of salt. This is not official information and does not come from verifiable sources. However, recent revelations from Ed Boon, as well as the reboot of the MK universe, suggest that there might be room for the return of some characters from the early 3D era.

The leaked roster is also incomplete, as only 19 of the game's 24 characters have been confirmed. This suggests that NetherRealm could still have more surprises in store when the ultra-violent game releases in September.

Old and new favorites

It's always exciting to see old favorites return, and with the promise of new stories, new designs, and new skills for the characters, it will be interesting to see how they have evolved since their last appearance. With Mortal Kombat 1 boasting such a diverse cast of characters, it's clear that the developers are committed to delivering an experience that will satisfy both new and old fans. We can say that Mortal Kombat 1 is shaping up to be one of the most exciting games in the series.

Mortal Kombat 1 will be released for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X/S on September 19, 2023.
