Mortal Kombat has a long tradition of introducing guest characters from across media to its roster of fighters, and the upcoming Mortal Kombat 1 will, of course, continue that tradition, with Invincible’s Omni-Man, The Boys’ Homelander, and DC’s Peacemarker having been officially announced as post-launch DLC characters for the fighter.
Interestingly enough, however, it seems that won’t be the extent of what the game will be doing with its guest characters. As per official promotional material for the game emerging from Brazil (shared on Twitter by @thethiny), Mortal Kombat 1 will seemingly also bring guest characters to its roster of Kameo fighters.
Whether that means we will get entirely new guest character announcements for the Kameo, or if the ones from the main roster will also receive Kameo versions, remains to be seen, though one would imagine the latter seems more likely. Currently, neither NetherRealm Studios nor WB Games has made any official announcements regarding the same.
It’s been confirmed that Mortal Kombat 1 will see John Cena and J.K. Simmons reprising their roles as Peacemaker and Omni-Man respectively. Meanwhile, NetherRealm has also assured that, in spite of their similar powers, Omni-Man and Homelander won’t be similar to each other in the game.
Mortal Kombat 1 launches on September 19 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Make sure to check out its recently-released live action trailer, which stars Dave Bautista.
