NetherRealm Studios has confirmed that Casey Edwards will serve as the composer for the soundtrack of Mortal Kombat 1. Edwards, a renowned video game composer known for his work on titles such as The Division and Devil May Cry 5, will lend his musical talents to the highly anticipated fighting game.
Mortal Kombat 1 marks a soft reboot of the Mortal Kombat series, offering players an alternate universe storyline created by Liu Kang. The game introduces a new gameplay mechanic called Kameo Fighters, where NPC Kombatants can appear to assist players. These Kameo Fighters can be chosen from a secondary roster and allow players to mix and match the skills of different characters.
