Mortal Kombat

25 years ago, those of us old enough to remember, saw the introduction of the Mortal Kombat franchise. Since then we have been treated to a variety of movies, spin-offs, comics, video games and endless collectables.

To celebrate this massive milestone NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment have pulled together a variety of events and activities for you to get involved in.


Starting today, NetherRealm’s mobile games will have new in-game content added, these are:

  • Injustice 2 for mobile adds Mortal Kombat’s God of Thunder Raiden, allowing players to battle the deity in Challenge Mode.  Raiden can be won in premium chests or purchased directly in a special offer.
  • Mortal Kombat X for mobile adds Shao Kahn the Konqueror in full Diamond tier regalia. Players can also step up and battle against two new versions of Goro, the four-armed undefeated champion for 500 years.   In addition, fans can gear up for intense raid-style combat in the all new Relic Hunt feature.
  • Injustice: Gods Among Us for mobile adds the dangerous assassin Scorpion to its line-up.
  • WWE Immortals pays homage to Mortal Kombat as WWE Superstar Xavier Woods suits up as classic Mortal Kombat character Raiden.

For gamers who are playing Injustice 2, NetherRealms latest release in the fighting genre, Raiden, God of Thunder has been added as a playable character for those who own the Fighter Pack 2 (this also comes with a skin that allows you to play as Black Lighting).

Naturally Mortal Kombat X won’t be missing out on the action, with the towers taking on themes from previous instalments in the franchise. Everything from Mortal Kombat 1, 2, 3, & 4, Shaolin Monks and the 2011 Mortal Kombat will be represented.


Next up on October 8th, for those attending the Comic Con in New York, you can attend a presentation from panellists Ed Boon, Geoff Keighly, Dan Forden and John Vogel, who will be discussing the franchise and their experiences working on Mortal Kombat over the years.
