Mortal Kombat 1 Teases Next Kombat Kast

Highlights

  • NetherRealm Studios’ popular Kombat Kast returns next week, likely revealing long-awaited characters for Mortal Kombat 1.
  • The Kombat Kast is a beloved source of information for fans of the fighting franchise, giving a detailed breakdown of each character’s moveset.
  • Fans are excited about the return of the web show and hopeful for the inclusion of their favorite characters from past games in Mortal Kombat 1.


After an extended absence following the release of Mortal Kombat 11, NetherRealm Studios’ popular Kombat Kast returns next week ahead of the launch of Mortal Kombat 1. With several characters from Mortal Kombat 1’s launch roster still yet to be named, the online show is likely to play home to some long-awaited character reveals.

Making its debut in the lead-up to the launch of 2015’s Mortal Kombat X, NetherRealm’s Kombat Kast has become a popular source of information about upcoming games for fans of the fighting franchise. With previous games, each episode of the Kombat Kast would focus on a single character and give players a rundown of that combatant’s move set from basic attacks to fatalities. Many in the Mortal Kombat community have been asking for the studio to bring back the popular web show in recent months, with a Reddit post from NetherRealm earlier this summer hinting at the return of the Kombat Kast sending some fans into a frenzy of excitement.

In a new post on social media from the official Mortal Kombat 1 account ahead of this weekend’s Evo 2023 fighting game tournament, it’s been revealed that the Kombat Kast will be returning next week. The return of the popular web show, and the promise of more information about as-yet unannounced combatants, is sure to be welcome news for fans of the franchise. As the latest entry in the long-running fighting franchise nears its September 19 release date, speculation over who the next Mortal Kombat 1 character reveals will be has run wild, with long-time fans hoping to see their favorite characters from past games make the cut.

Fans responded positively to the long-awaited return of the Kombat Kast, with several replies including a list of their dream team of characters they hope to see added to Mortal Kombat 1. Multiple responses to the post called on NetherRealm to reveal more about Mileena, clearly eager to see what role the masked, misshapen series mainstay will play in Mortal Kombat 1’s rebooted timeline. Not everyone was excited, though. One franchise fan chimed in to share their view on what they see as underwhelming marketing for Mortal Kombat 1 so far, expressing disappointment that most of the pre-release information has been focused on the game’s story rather than its fighters.

With the Kombat Kast set to return next week, it’s probably safe to assume that gamers are in store for a deluge of information about NetherRealm’s latest entry in its long-running fighting franchise. And with the Mortal Kombat 1 beta test set to start on August 18 for those who pre-ordered the game, it won’t be long until fans can finally get their hands on some of their favorite fighters.

Mortal Kombat 1 launches September 19 for PC, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series X.
