Here’s the new trailer. It initially focuses on both Sub-Zero and Scorpion, who are working together to assist the Lin Kuei in its mission. Both story scenes and gameplay appear. However, at the 50 second mark, we get to see Smoke in Mortal Kombat 1 for the first time. After seeing him interact with Sub-Zero and Scorpion, we also get to see him in action for a bit. At just about the two minute mark is when Rain comes up in the Mortal Kombat 1 trailer, and we see him meet the group of ninjas.

People already had a chance to go hands-on with some of the Mortal Kombat 1 cast. A stress test appeared in June 2023. There will also be a beta in August 2023. Exact dates for it haven’t been revealed yet.

Mortal Kombat 1 will release on September 19, 2023 on the PS5, Switch Xbox Series X, and PC. People who get the Kollector’s Edition get early access on September 14, 2023.
