Mortal Kombat is blessed a good, however utterly ludicrous, story, with the newest entry victimization time jaunt pit combatants from past and gift against one another during a big brawl to decide the fate of reality.
In an interview with the Terra Federative Republic of Brazil, Boon teased the future of the fighter, including more characters and something to look forward to next year.
We are pretty much calling this one the end of the story, but we are certainly not through with Mortal Kombat.
“You know, there are more characters that are going to come, and we have a big surprise coming next year for Mortal Kombat.”
Some of the Kombat Pack characters still haven’t free, so we’re still waiting on Sindel, The Joker, and Spawn. That will keep the United States going till well into next year, but other characters, including The Evil Dead’s Ash, have been teased.
This new timeline would see Raiden erased and balance restored, which would mean endless war between the realms.
The protagonists spend most of Mortal Kombat 11 trying to foil this plan, with younger versions of well-known characters either teaming up with their older selves or fighting against them depending on various circumstances thanks to Kronika’s manipulation of the timeline bringing the past and present characters together.
Mortal Kombat’s story has also ended before, and the last three games have all been part of a rebooted universe.
It’s not precisely a restrained series, so I expect there are lots of places that it can still go.
The canon ending will desire an honest place to go away this specific plotline, but Netherrealm has multiple dimensions to mine for new arcs.
There’s conjointly another Mortal Kombat pic on the horizon. It’s due to come in 2021 and is already in pre-production. My expectations are low, but I’m still looking forward to some nauseating big screen fatalities.
