NetherRealm Studios and WB Games have officially unveiled the highly anticipated new installment of Mortal Kombat titled Mortal Kombat 1, set to release worldwide on September 19th for PC, PS5, Xbox Series X|S, and Nintendo Switch. The announcement comes after months of speculation and hints, confirming the long-standing rumors that NetherRealm Studios’ next game would be another Mortal Kombat entry rather than Injustice 3.
True to its roots, the new Mortal Kombat 1 game retains the brutal and visceral gameplay the series is known for. Alongside the game’s debut trailer, the first batch of confirmed characters has been revealed, providing fans with a glimpse of the intense battles that await.

This upcoming Mortal Kombat 1 release marks the 12th mainline installment in the Mortal Kombat series, which originated in 1992. However, when considering spin-offs and other releases, it becomes the 28th title overall. Remarkably, the core gameplay experience has remained relatively consistent throughout the franchise’s long history, with the arcade debut of the first game still capturing the essence of the new installment.
