Mortal Kombat 1 Reveals Returning Characters and Story Beats at EVO 2023

The highly-anticipated fighting game title, Mortal Kombat 1, is set to release this September. At EVO 2023, fans were treated to a big reveal, showcasing four returning characters and giving a glimpse into the game's story.

One of the fan-favorite characters making a comeback is Reptile, who was absent from MK 11. Reptile brings with him some gruesome tricks, including a Fatality where he literally eats his opponents. Another returning character is Ashrah, who first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Deception. She comes back with angelic glory, using her angel wings to sink feathers into her opponent's flesh as a Fatality move.

Havik, another fan favorite, also returns with a major redesign. He now possesses regenerative abilities that prove to be detrimental to his foes. Sareena makes an appearance as well, but as a kameo character.

In addition to the character reveals, the trailer also unveiled the Kombat Pack DLC, which includes guest characters like Omni-Man and Homelander. The Kombat Pack will be part of Mortal Kombat 1's Premium Edition.

Mortal Kombat is set to release on September 19, 2023. For more information about the game, visit their official website.
