NetherRealm Studios has been building the hype for Mortal Kombat 1, the latest installment in the 30-year-old fighting game franchise, with a steady flow of information since announcing the title last month. Continuing the trend, Warner Bros. Games invited a select group of players to check out the game first-hand directly after unveiling its first gameplay trailer. So far, the first impressions have been overwhelmingly positive, but don’t just take our word for it, hear it from the community!

And last but not least, a surprise Kameo Fighter appearance from TEKKEN’s Katsuhiro Harada…

It won’t be long until more players can check out Mortal Kombat 1 for themselves. Evo 2023 attendees can play the first publicly available preview of MK1 on the show floor. We can’t wait to share this experience with you in Las Vegas. 

Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate has had a phenomenal run, but it still has one more Evo left before MK1 takes us into a new era for the franchise! Do you have what it takes to be the final MK11 Evo champion? Sign up for Evo 2023, compete in our epic lineup, and experience the future of fighting games with us on August 4-6, 2023.
