The most recent rumors claim that Mortal Kombat 12 will go by the name Mortal Kombat 1 and include special guests, including Homelander from The Boys and Peacemaker from DC Comics. Following the first announcement of Mortal Kombat 12 a few months ago, the official teasers are increasing interest in the upcoming fighting game.
The first Mortal Kombat 12 teaser featured little more than a grain of sand exploding, giving away the fact that the game would continue the chronology shake-up introduced in Mortal Kombat 11.
A ticking clock at 11 before leaping to 1 in the second Mortal Kombat 12 teaser gave some more information, indicating that the game would be a relaunch of the Mortal Kombat series. According to recent leaks from reliable sources, the new game, allegedly called Mortal Kombat 1, is, in fact, a reboot.
Mortal Kombat 1 will be fully exposed within the next few weeks, according to leaker Billbil-kun, whose information was confirmed by Windows Central, and is planned to go on sale sometime in September.
Mortal Kombat fans will reportedly have three editions to pick from when it launches: a $69.99 Standard Edition, a $109.99 Premium Edition, and a $249.99 Kollector’s Edition. The Nintendo Switch version will cost $59.99. Versions for the PS4 or Xbox One were not announced.
Billbil-kun shares a tweet:

The Mortal Kombat 1 roster wasn’t revealed much in the leaks, but players may anticipate seeing some familiar faces and brand-new ones in the game. The new Mortal Kombat game will reportedly have a Character Pass to add new fighters as DLC.
Peacemaker and Homelander from The Boys have been suggested as potential but unverified alternatives. However, until the formal announcement, whenever that may be, fans should treat all this leaked information with a massive grain of salt.

Long-standing rumors suggested that the reveal of the upcoming Mortal Kombat game will take place later this month, and the teasers and leaks also seem to support that theory.
However, no official announcement on a potential Mortal Kombat reveal has been made as of yet, so fans of the fighting game franchise will need to keep checking back for further details. However, if the leaks are reliable, the upcoming Mortal Kombat game will take the franchise to some unexpected places.
