Mortal Kombat 1 Leaks as a Reboot of The Franchise

Popular dataminer and leaker @billbil_kun has revealed that the next Mortal Kombat is a reboot of the series and will be called Mortal Kombat 1. Insider Gaming was also able to independently verify the claims.

The leak reveals that the next Mortal Kombat game will be called Mortal Kombat 1 and will release in three different editions.
  • Standard Edition: $69.99 (PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC)
  • Premium Edition: $109.99 (PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC)
  • Collector’s Edition: $249.99 (PS5, Xbox Series X/S, PC)

Rumors began to circulate that the next Mortal Kombat game will be a reboot of the series following official teasers. Yesterday, a cryptic teaser showed a clock slowly ticking from 9. However, once the clock reaches 11, the clock begins to stutter and skips over 12 entirely to land on one.

As of yet, it’s not entirely clear on what the reboot means for the series, but if information has started to be datamined, it means an announcement is imminent. In fact, it’s entirely plausible that the game could be announced at this months rumoured PlayStation Showcase.

Billbil_kun also revealed that despite the game seemingly only releasing on current generation consoles, the game will also release on the Nintendo Switch. The standard edition will be priced at $59.99.

What do you think of Mortal Kombat being rebooted?

  1. Nope, not a reboot. Continuation. Will be seeing the FIRST Mortal Kombat. In the storyline we have, everything so far has been about the LAST Mortal Kombat.

  2. Not sure how they’ll spin the story yet again since MK9 to 11 was already a reboot to the series. Hopefully this time around they’ll scrap ‘guest’ characters though.

  3. I mean if you played MK11 this pretty much a given. Never gave thought to the game simply being called Mortal Kombat and not MK12. Makes sense though. I’m just ready to fight again. Lol.

  4. I wish MK 11 Aftermath Shang Tsung ending was canon and we had him as the main villain in MK 12 with Kronika and Liu Kan’s power and Kung Lao be the main hero to defeat him and then restart the time line. It would have been better.
