Mortal Kombat 1 Character Roster Details Are Starting To Leak Online
Details regarding the character roster featured in Warner Bros Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm’s Mortal Kombat 1 are beginning to leak online.
GameFAQs message boards member r00000r, who is known for their reliable leaks, corroborated the information shared by another leaker regarding a partial character roster leak for Mortal Kombat 1.
Mortal Kombat 1 Character Roster
The partial character roster leaked by GameFAQs user CaptainKashup, and corroborated by known leaker r00000r, can be seen below.
- Liu Kang
- Johnny Cage
- Sub Zero
- Sonya Blade
- Kung Lao
- Cassie Cage
- One of the Cyborg characters
- Shang Tsung
- Hsu Hao
Additionally, it was stated that characters in the base roster can be used as kameos (Mortal Kombat 1’s wordplay on cameos). Therefore, according to the leaked information, all of the characters in the reveal trailer are also usable as kameos. There are, however, characters that will only be kameo, such as new entrants Kira and Hsu Hao.
The leaker, r00000r, mentioned that they only had direct access to a major piece of production material, and their information is limited to it. For example, they knew kameos are a part of the game, but had no idea what they were meant to be until now. They know who’s playable in the story mode, but do not know about characters outside of it. There are two major characters who are present in the story mode that do not take part in fights.
Regarding the story, it was stated by CaptainKashup that both Aftermath endings are considered canon here. There will be some timeline overlap, and a tiny portion of the story will take place in the past. Much like Liu Kang, Shang Tsung comes from his own ending from Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, though he is not the main villain in Mortal Kombat 1. According to the source, the portal that he uses is the same type of time portals that were used in Aftermath.
