According to the latest leaks, it appears that Mortal Kombat 12 will actually be named Mortal Kombat 1. The leaks also suggest that the game will feature guest characters such as Homelander from The Boys and Peacemaker from DC Comics. The initial announcement for Mortal Kombat 12 took place a few months ago, and official teasers have been released to build anticipation for the upcoming fighting game.
The first teaser for Mortal Kombat 12 revealed very little, showing an exploding grain of sand, hinting at a continuation of the timeline shake-up seen in Mortal Kombat 11. The second teaser offered more clues, featuring a ticking clock that transitioned from 11 to 1, indicating that Mortal Kombat 12 might actually be a reboot for the franchise. Recent leaks from credible sources support this notion, suggesting that the new game, potentially titled Mortal Kombat 1, is indeed a reboot.
According to a reliable leaker named billbil-kun, whose information was corroborated by Windows Central, Mortal Kombat 1 will be fully unveiled within the next few weeks and is expected to launch in September of this year. At launch, fans can reportedly choose from a Standard Edition priced at $69.99, a Premium Edition at $109.99, and a Kollector’s Edition at $249.99. The Nintendo Switch version will be priced at $59.99. No information regarding versions for the PS4 or Xbox One was mentioned.
The leaks did not provide extensive details about the roster for Mortal Kombat 1. However, fans can anticipate the inclusion of staple characters as well as some new additions. As for guest characters, the leaks mention a Character Pass that will introduce new fighters as downloadable content (DLC), with Peacemaker and Homelander from The Boys being suggested as potential options, although this information remains unconfirmed. It is important to approach all leaked information with caution until an official announcement is made.
There has been speculation for some time that the reveal for the next Mortal Kombat game would occur later this month, which aligns with the teasers and leaks. However, no official announcement has been made regarding a potential Mortal Kombat reveal. Fans of the franchise will need to stay tuned for further updates. If the leaks turn out to be accurate, the next Mortal Kombat game seems poised to take the series in unforeseen directions.
Rumors indicate that Mortal Kombat 1 is currently in development for PC, PS5, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X.
