The excitement for Mortal Kombat 1 reached new heights during the San Diego Comic-Con 2023, where a thrilling panel unveiled an electrifying new trailer and shed light on additional characters set to join the game’s roster post-launch.
The latest trailer showcases three major new characters: Baraka, Li Mei, and Tanya. Baraka, a beloved series regular known for his fearsome arm blades and menacing grin, has been a part of Mortal Kombat since its second installment. His martial prowess and Tarkatan heritage have consistently made him a prominent figure in the game’s story modes, even appearing in spin-offs like Puzzle Kombat and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks.
Tanya, a minor antagonist introduced in Mortal Kombat 4, emerged as a significant character during the 3D era. Although her appearances were limited in recent games, she made a notable return as a DLC fighter in Mortal Kombat X, continuing to showcase her agility and pyrokinetic abilities in the new trailer.
