The game, made by NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Games, will be some familiar characters from the iconic franchise, much to long-time fans' excitement.
If you are wondering if your favorite characters will be in this upcoming mobile game, you are in luck. Here are all the characters we are sure will be included in Mortal Kombat: Onslaught.
Mortal Kombat: Onslaught Characters
While NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. have not formally announced a full list of which characters will join the 'Mortal Kombat: Onslaught' roster, they have provided us with a few hints.
The following characters are currently available in the early access version of the game for Android:
- Erron Black
- Johnny Cage
- Kung Lao
- Liu Kang
- Noob Saibot
- Quan Chi
- Shao Kahn
- Sonya Blade
Players will be able to collect "over 30" Mortal Kombat characters upon the game's full release, suggesting that the characters in the game already are just a sampling of the final roster.
Mortal Kombat: Onslaught Promotional Art Characters
The promotional art for the game featured a total of eight characters, all of which are also likely to be included in the game at some point. Some of them - but not all - are already a part of the game's roster.
The fighters included in the promotional art of Mortal Kombat: Onslaught are:
- Quan Chi
- Shao Kahn
These are the best guesses we can make of which characters will be included based on the promotional art provided by NetherRealm Studios.
Of course, it is highly likely that even more characters will be featured in Mortal Kombat: Onslaught. After all, the game's premise is collecting as many strong characters as possible and assembling a battle team.
There are 77 playable fighters in the Mortal Kombat franchise, more than enough for developers to choose from.
It is also possible that more characters could be added after the game's release in the form of DLC, if it is particularly successful. Mortal Kombat is a popular and iconic series, after all, and fans will likely want to see their favorite characters in the game as well as regular post-launch updates.
That is all we know now about which characters will be featured in Mortal Kombat: Onslaught. As the 2023 release of the game nears, developers and publishers will release more information about the game and its roster. We will be the first to let you know when they do.
