Someone old, someone new, someone licensed, and someone who kinda blew
I’ve been playing Mortal Kombat off and on since the early 90s, and while I have a good grasp of the breadth of the cast, there are still names and faces that slip through the cracks. Names like Li Mei. I don’t remember her from any of the games, so I shot over to the awful Mortal Kombat Fandom wiki to get a refresher on this fighter I’d completely forgotten.
Even after reading her bio, I still don’t remember her. But I guess we’ll be reacquainted later this year as a new trailer from NetherRealm today confirmed she’s coming to Mortal Kombat 1 alongside Tanya, who I do remember from Mortal Kombat X. Both fighters feature heavily in the spot, as does Baraka, who is back as a playable character.
With the game still several weeks from launch, NetherRealm decided now is as good a time as any to confirm all the DLC rumors that have been swirling since it was revealed. In a second trailer released on Friday, the developer confirmed the kombatants of what will likely be the first Kombat Pack. Included are:
- Omni-Man (Invincible)
- Homelander (The Boys)
- Peacemaker (Peacemaker, Suicide Squad)
- Quan Chi (Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm)
- Ermac (Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3)
- Takeda (Mortal Kombat X)
Mortal Kombat 1 releases on September 14 for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Switch. Pricing and a release schedule for the Kombat Pack haven’t been revealed yet, but you can secure the six fighters above if you purchase the Premium or Kollector’s Edition.
