Barely a week after Mortal Kombat celebrated its 30th anniversary, NetherRealm Studios have announced Mortal Kombat: Onslaught, a new collection role-playing game featuring the series’ first mobile-exclusive cinematic story experience.
While the studio are currently believed to be working on a number of projects concurrently (including Mortal Kombat 12 and possibly Injustice 3), today’s announcement is sure to whet the appetites of die-hard fans keen to sink their teeth into some fresh content.
Along with news of Mortal Kombat: Onslaught comes an incredible piece of key art, featuring Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden, Shinnok, Kitana, Shao Kahn, Quan Chi and Jade doing battle in what looks like the far reaches of the Netherrealm.
Mortal Kombat is no stranger to portable devices, with a rather lacklustre port of Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 released for iOS in 2010 by Electronic Arts. It was later pulled; a fresh and entirely new app was developed by NetherRealm Studios and released in 2015 for both iOS and Android devices. Although various kombatants, features and updates in general have been plentiful over the years, Mortal Kombat Mobile has largely been a simplified experience when compared to its console counterparts. While details are scarce at the moment, it certainly seems that this game will be an exception and is likely to be much grander in scale.
Mortal Kombat: Onslaught is set to launch in 2023. What do you think of today’s announcement, and who would you love to see join the roster? Be sure to let us know across our various social media channels, including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
