After teasing a new entry in the Mortal Kombat series, NetheRealm Studios has pulled back the curtain on Mortal Kombat 1.

Warner Bros. reveals the series has sold over 80 million units since debuting over 30 years ago. Serving as yet another reboot, this time we see Fire God Liu Kang recreate the world, allowing us to see reimagined versions of the iconic roster of characters.

Story Mode returns with an immersive “cinematic narrative” which is said to include unexpected twists on classic rivalries and new backstories for the cast including Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Shang Tsung, Johnny Cage, and many others.

Additionally, Kameo Fighters will be added, featuring a unique roster of partner characters that assist in battle.

“Mortal Kombat 1 marks a new beginning for the franchise and we couldn’t be more excited to share this original storyline and fresh take on classic characters with our fans,” said Ed Boon, Chief Creative Officer, NetherRealm Studios and Co-Creator of Mortal Kombat. “We’re also introducing our Kameo Fighter system which brings a unique roster of partner characters into the mix, and we are looking forward to showing this feature as well as more new elements of the game very soon.”
