A new Mortal Kombat 1 character trailer dropped at Evo 2023, confirming the return of Reptile. In addition, Mortal Kombat: Deception fighters Ashrah and Havik will return. Rounding out the new reveals is Sareena, who appeared in games like Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero and will be a Kameo fighter here.
Things all start with Reptile in the Mortal Kombat 1 “Banished” character trailer. After meeting characters like Johnny Cage, Kung Lao, and Baraka, he explains how he can take both reptilian and human forms. After that, the group meets Kitana, and we see Reptile fight her.
After that, the Mortal Kombat 1 video shows Kung Lao, Johnny Cage, Reptile, and Kenshi Takahashi meeting Ashrah. She explains she’s a Netherrealm demon who “purged most evil” from herself. She and Reptile, whose true name is revealed to be Syzoth, then meet Liu Kang.
After that, the “Banished” video focuses on gameplay. We get to see matches between characters like Ashrah and Havik, Reptile and Mileena, and then Reptile and Havik.
The last Mortal Kombat 1 character trailer appeared in July 2023. It focused on the Lin Kuei, with Smoke and Rain showing up alongside Sub-Zero and Scorpion.
