Mortal Kombat 1 may be getting a lot of OG fighters.

The classic fighting game series’ co-creator Ed Boon sent out an exciting tweet earlier this week that has fans believing that we will see a lot of familiar faces in Mortal Kombat 1. This extremely gory fighting game is expected to come later this year, but not a lot is known about the game since it was confirmed in early May 2023.

That all changed when Boon decided to share some interesting hints on social media.

Who will be on the Mortal Kombat 1 roster?

There’s a small list of confirmed characters for Mortal Kombat 1:

  • Johnny Cage
  • Kitana
  • Kung Lao
  • Liu Kang
  • Mileena
  • Raiden
  • Scorpion
  • Shang Tsung (Pre-order exclusive)
  • Sub-Zero

But that’s not it for the mysterious roster. Recently, Boon tweeted a screenshot of Mortal Kombat 4’s character selection screen. He said: “Some making their way back into action.”

Of course, Boon didn’t tell us which Mortal Kombat 4 characters were going to return. This left the FGC in a frenzy. Many took to Twitter to ask about their favorites from the 1997 title. Names that popped up include Reiko, Kai, Fujin, Reptile, Tanya, and Sonya.

Some iconic characters were missing from more recent titles, including Reptile, which is why fans are hoping to see their triumphant return in Mortal Kombat 1. While they are hoping for some similarities — like Jarek’s iconic voice — others are hoping to see the characters transformed in Mortal Kombat 1, unlocking their full potential.
