Mortal Kombat 1: Keeping Fans Happy with Classic and New Fighters

Mortal Kombat 1

Over the last 31 years, the Mortal Kombat franchise has grown into a legendary collection of fighters. Each fan has their favorite character to play as, whether it’s a franchise staple like Scorpion or Sub-Zero, or a lesser-known fighter like Motaro or Havik. And now, with Mortal Kombat 1, it seems like the game is bringing characters from across the franchise’s long history, keeping both types of fans happy.

Currently, there are 15 fighters confirmed for Mortal Kombat 1, with an additional one available as a pre-order bonus. That’s already more than enough fighters to experiment with, but Mortal Kombat 1 is not stopping there. Every few weeks, a new handful of Kombatants are revealed, building up the excitement for the game’s release.

Recently, Mortal Kombat 1 announced its first DLC roster, and the reception has been great. In addition to comic book icons like Homelander, Peacemaker, and Omni-Man, the first Kombat Pack will also include fan-favorite characters like Takeda, Quan Chi, and Ermac. However, there’s one little hiccup – fans aren’t too thrilled with Ermac’s new appearance.

Ermac, a character with a mystical history and a loyal following, has always sported a bold red and black desGameTopic. But the newest version of Ermac in Mortal Kombat 1 doesn’t have any kind of mask. It may seem like a small change, but it’s a big disappointment for many fans. Without his signature mask, Ermac looks strangely different from what fans are used to, especially when compared to his appearances in Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 11.

Fortunately, there’s still time for NetherRealm, the studio behind Mortal Kombat 1, to address this issue before the game’s release. Ermac’s desGameTopic could be easily fixed by adding some bandages or a mask, and enhancing the vibrant red coloring on his outfit. These small changes could go a long way in bringing fans back around on his desGameTopic.

Alternatively, Mortal Kombat 1 offers a glimmer of hope for Ermac’s redemption. While the game may not have its own Krypt mode, it does feature an unlock system with alternate costumes. When Ermac joins the roster, he might come with one or two alternate outfits that could potentially give him a more favorable appearance. Fans can eagerly anticipate the possibilities.

So, whether NetherRealm addresses Ermac’s desGameTopic before release or offers alternate costumes as a redemption tool, Mortal Kombat 1 is shaping up to be an exciting game for fans of the franchise. Get ready for its launch on September 19th for PC, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series X/S.
