Time really doesn’t fly. This year marks 30 years since Sub Zero, Scorpion and the iconic words “Finish Him” ​​were introduced to gamers with the launch of the first Mortal Kombat. This influential and iconic Midway fighter debuted in arcades in October 1992 before being ported to home consoles — and was like nothing gamers had ever seen before.

The gory, more mature style of gaming and its distinctive digitized graphics caused a stir, as well as controversy among conservative adults — with Mortal Kombat, along with other games like Night Trap, appearing during the US Senate hearings on video games in 1993.

Mortal Kombat has undoubtedly changed the shape of gaming forever, spawning countless sequels, comic books, movies, along with a hit 90s techno anthem when it became one of the most iconic gaming franchises of all time.

And fans of the series may have figured out how the historic 30th anniversary will be celebrated in 2022.

As marked in a message Rumors have been swirling on Reddit about what Warner Bros Games and NetherRealm Studios have in store for MK’s 30th anniversary.

A remaster of the original trilogy – Mortal Kombat, Mortal Kombat 2, and Mortal Kombat 3 – is rumored to be coming in 2022.

While a new Mortal Kombat spin-off title will also be reportedly launched in 2023 or 2024.

The alleged leak, which was originally shared on the infamous internet message board 4chan, claims that the remaster of the Mortal Kombat trilogy is being handled by a studio other than NetherRealm.

But – most interestingly – NetherRealm is said not to handle the remaster itself, as the studio is busy working on a brand new IP address.

This is reportedly a new franchise that is not a fighting game.

As always with rumours, make sure to take these claims with a grain of salt until official confirmation.

Especially in the case of 4chan, which has hosted numerous fake leaks that never came out.

Every once in a while, though, a legitimate leak pops up on 4chan – such as details about Pokemon Let’s Go before Nintendo officially announced the Switch game in 2018.
