With Street Fighter 6 out now, Mortal Kombat 1 is the next big thing for fighting game fans worldwide. The gory cinematic trailer came out two weeks ago and took the internet by storm. The pre-order window opened on May 19 and since then, it has risen to the top of the pre-order charts at PS Store in both the US and the UK. With fans worldwide anticipating for gameplay reveal, it is expected that the pre-order numbers will see a further boost after Summer Game Fest.

Mortal Kombat 1 is simultaneously a reboot and a sequel of the franchise. The announcement trailer introduced a reimagined version of the universe that had unfolded in prior games. MK1 is promised to include a “new fighting system, game modes, and fatalities”, along with a system that grants you a roster of Kameo fighting partners, who will aid you in fights. The inclusion of a distinct Kameo Fighters roster also opens up the possibility for beloved legacy characters to make a comeback in the new game.
Mortal Kombat 1 is slated to launch on September 19 for PC, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series X.
