Mortal Kombat 1 promises to provide a gaming experience that balances nostalgia with groundbreaking new features. While details about the game’s roster have been kept under wraps by Ed Boon, the series’ co-creator, a recent leak from a reliable source has provided intriguing insights into the eclectic mix of characters that players can expect.
In this article, we’ll explore the leaked Mortal Kombat 1 roster of characters and discuss the innovative gameplay system that it will introduce.
Mortal Kombat 1 Roster Leak Reveals an Exciting Mix of Characters
The Mortal Kombat 1 roster of characters has once again been revealed by r00000r, a GameFAQs message board user well renowned for reliably disclosing information regarding Mortal Kombat 11.
r00000r verified the following characters for the Mortal Kombat 1 roster after disproving a list of characters given by a fraudulent leaker:
- Shang Tsung
- Liu Kang
- Li Mei
- Kung Lao
- Johnny Cage
Some of these characters have already been confirmed through a recent gameplay showcase at the Summer Game Fest. The inclusion of fan-favorite characters like Johnny Cage and Sub-Zero, along with the exciting possibilities of Reptile and Havik joining the Mortal Kombat 1 roster, is sure to please both long-time fans and newcomers to the series.
Notable Absences from Mortal Kombat 1 Roster
Of the 24 characters, we are currently aware of 11 of them: Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Raiden, Mileena, Kitana, Johnny Cage, Jax, Kano, and Shang Tsung, who is a pre-order bonus. This indicates that there are 13 characters that we do not, at least officially, know about.
While the leaked Mortal Kombat 1 roster brings excitement, it also reveals the absence of certain beloved characters.
Cyrax, Sektor, and Jade won’t be returning to the roster, which may disappoint some fans. Cole Young, the protagonist of the recent Mortal Kombat film, will also not be featured in the Mortal Kombat 1 roster.
Additionally, Skarlet’s voice actress, Beata Pozniak, did not reprise her role for Mortal Kombat 1. Beata Pozniak, tweeted “Me too,” confirming she didn’t work on the game after a fan posted a photo of Skarlet with the remark “I’m really gonna miss her” on Twitter.

However, there is still hope for their return in later DLCs, offering the potential for surprises and additional content in the future. Whether this news is disappointing or a relief depends on individual preferences and opinions.
What to expect from the Mortal Kombat 1 Roster?
In an interview with VentureBeat, Ed Boon revealed that Mortal Kombat 1 will feature characters from various eras of the franchise. This means that characters from the arcade era all the way to the Deception, Deadly Alliance, Armageddon era, and possibly even the 9, X, and 11 eras will be included in the game.
Also, Ed Boon has previously mentioned that the game’s plot will determine which characters are part of the main Mortal Kombat 1 roster. However, he also hinted that the Kameo Fighter system will be used to include fan-favorite characters and even guest characters from outside the Mortal Kombat series.
This approach allows NetherRealm to focus on fighters relevant to the plot while still providing fan service and opening up the game for exciting crossovers and unexpected additions.
Well, as the release date in September draws near, anticipation for Mortal Kombat 1 is reaching a fever pitch among fans. With a dynamic character roster featuring a mix of familiar and new faces, as well as an innovative gameplay system, Mortal Kombat 1 promises to deliver a gaming experience that respects the franchise’s rich history while pushing boundaries and breaking new ground.
Fans of Mortal Kombat can look forward to an exciting reboot that aims to captivate both old and new players alike.
