Today, as promised, an extensive gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat 1 debuted during Summer Game Fest 2023. Not only did we get to see the new universe created by Fire God Liu Kang where rivals are now friends, but creative director Ed Boon also took to the stage to share more details on Kameo Fighters. With Kameo Fighters, they can be brought into the fight with a push of a button, even in the middle of a combo. You can’t continuously spam your Kameo Fighter, but it is balanced so that you can mostly use it freely based on the footage.

The designs of many Kameo Fighters are based on earlier entries in the Mortal Kombat franchise. Sonya Blade, for example, is wearing her outfit from the original game.

Set to release on September 19, 2023, on PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Switch, expect to hear a lot more about Mortal Kombat 1 over the next few days since the gaming media will be getting their hands on it as part of this week’s gaming festivities.
