The Mortal Kombat Storyline is Madness

There’s a new Mortal Kombat video game coming out in September and it looks wild. It’s going to be called Mortal Kombat 1, instead of Mortal Kombat 12. The reason for that is because, once again, the universe is starting over from scratch. Because the last game ended with the universe being destroyed and Liu Kang rising to become some sort of cosmic god. It was wild.

And by the nature of these games, they just gotta continue the story.

I think this is just always going to happen. The universe will get reset and they’ll need to start again from the very beginning. Either that, or they need to stop jumping into the future, where classic characters get old and have children. All we want are classic characters, right?

The top of my concerns, of course, is whether or not Smoke is in the game. He’s one of my all-time favorite video game characters, and he’s the only one that matters. I haven’t had a playable Smoke since Mortal Kombat 9. I doubt he’ll be in a game that revives the story at the very beginning, but the website for this new game said there will be something called Kameos, which are support characters who can be called upon in a fight. Maybe Smoke will be one of those? That could be fun.

Mortal Kombat 1 comes out on Sept. 19.
