Mortal Kombat: Onslaught cinematic leaks ahead of 2023 launch
A couple of weeks back, Netherrealm Studios dropped some Mortal Kombat news in the form of a mobile game. Titled Mortal Kombat: Onslaught, the studio promised to bring the series to new heights. There was some promise of a more cinematic experience with this MK mobile game, and a little leak may prove that right. Earlier in the week, Mortal Kombat’s early access version of the game leaked and was quickly taken down.

So far, so good, I’d say! Mobile games aren’t at the top of my list, but I’ll definitely play this one. I’m a big fan of MK lore, and this game’s focus on story is intriguing. Onslaught is still scheduled for a 2023 release date; you can sign up here for more updates on the game.
