Publisher Warner Bros. Games and developer NetherRealm Studios have announced more characters for Mortal Kombat 1.
The reboot (or whatever it is) is adding Smoke and Rain as playable characters alongside Kameo Fighters Sektor, Cyrax, Frost, and Scorpion.
Here’s a rundown on the characters, plus the new trailer:
Revealed in a new trailer focused on Scorpion and Sub-Zero’s struggle to establish the Lin Kuei’s purpose in Liu Kang’s new Mortal Kombat Universe, the video introduces Smoke, a fellow member of the ancient warrior clan with a mastery of stealth and practical magic. With deep ties to Scorpion and Sub-Zero, Smoke has made the clan’s mission his own and joins his Lin Kuei brethren in defense of Earthrealm. The trailer also provides a first look at Rain, the High Mage of Outworld who has honed his craft of water magic into a fierce weapon and now hopes to learn the realms’ darkest and most powerful sorcery.
Mortal Kombat 1 is the latest installment in the acclaimed Mortal Kombat videogame franchise developed by award-winning NetherRealm Studios and introduces a reborn Mortal Kombat Universe set in a new story with iconic heroes and villains reimagined as they’ve never been seen before. The game features a wide-ranging cast of legendary fighters with all-new backstories, including Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Shang Tsung, Johnny Cage, Kenshi, Smoke, Rain, and more, along with a separate roster of Kameo Fighters who can assist during matches.
