WB Games just unveiled Mortal Kombat: Onslaught, a “cinematic story experience” coming to mobile devices sometime in 2023.

This doesn’t mark Mortal Kombat’s first outing in the mobile space; Mortal Kombat Mobile launched as an MKX tie-in for Android and iOS devices in early 2015.

NetherRealm Studios developed the title, which featured many of the series’ core tenets – Fatalities, X-Ray moves, and Towers.

Since its release, users have installed MK Mobile more than 150 million times, an impressive feat WB Games is likely hoping to replicate with its next on-the-go endeavor.

NetherRealm Studios serves as the project’s developer and co-publisher; thus, fans can expect the game to maintain the core essence of MK.

According to series Co-Creator and NetherRealm CCO Ed Boon, Onslaught represents a “strategic team-based collection RPG with fast-paced, group melee combat.”

Presently, there’s no word on content specifics; however, the teaser image above suggests fan-favorites like Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden, Kitana, and Jade will feature.
