Developed by studios NetherRealm which has in its catalog games such as “Batman: Arkham Origins” and “Injustice”, Shiver Entertainment exclusively for Nintendo Swift, and QLOC, for Steam and Epic Games Store, Mortal Kombat 1 seeks to improve the franchise’s well-known and classic combat tools, while delivering new story, villains, game modes and fatalities to players.
In history, Liu Kang, also called the “God of Fire”, created a New Era, where everyone can find their path of peace and harmony. However, a new villain will mean that Liu Kang will have to use all his wisdom and experience to save not only Planet Earth, but all of existence.
The “story mode” returns with a completely new, cinematic narrative, with unexpected twists, classic rivalries and original stories for the wide cast of legendary fighters. More details about online and offline modes will be released soon, according to information on the game’s website.
There is also “invasion mode”, a type of RPG where the character will move around a board to face fierce battles, with everything this type of game has to offer: skill points, special equipment, amulets and other items that the will become stronger and more prepared.

There will also be so-called “Kameos”, or “Partnership Fighters”, exclusive partner characters whose objective is to assist the player during matches, a great option for gamers who want to create and diversify their combos during matches.
These characters must be chosen separately from the main cast of fighters. On the list, there are established and feared names such as Sonya Blade, Goro, Jax, Stryker and Motaro.
Warner, responsible for publishing the game, revealed that there is a skin for the character “Tanya” that will pay homage to the Brazilian public, with colors, clothes, accessories and even Juliet glasses to characterize the fighter.
