In 2023, Games Warner Bros. go outside Mortal Kombat: Assaulta mobile role-playing game with a cinematic story.
Mortal Kombat: Onslaught, a spin-off developed by Nether Realm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Games, is presented as a “collectible role play” for mobile devices. Its release is scheduled for 2023.
Mortal Kombat: Onslaught players will be able to form teams of fighters and engage in “massive group battles in real time“, according to a press release. Spinoffs are a natural way to capitalize on the Mortal Kombat franchise’s rich roster of playable characters, which includes a large main cast and a large number of supporting characters.
Given what we know about the game so far, Onslaught should take inspiration from The King of All-Star Fighters, SNK mobile version that transformed KoF in a successful role play; nonetheless, the game’s approach to group combat will push it beyond what SNK has achieved.
Chairman of Warner Bros. Games, David Haddad, reaffirmed the studio’s commitment to expanding its horizons. “Mortal Kombat is a legendary franchise and pop culture phenomenon, and it continues to engage players and advance the fighting genre across multiple platforms.” he said.
Since the release of Mortal Kombat Mobile, there has not been a new mobile entry in the Mortal Kombat franchise. This game is one of the most successful on the mobile platform. As Mortal Kombat approaches its 30th anniversary, this first mobile-exclusive cinematic experience will test the limits of what gamers expect from the series.
We’re pushing the boundaries of Mortal Kombat to allow players to experience the franchise in new ways, while staying true to its core visceral nature.”
Additionally, a new website has increased, however, all it has to offer at the moment is a newsletter sign-up for anyone interested in learning more about the game.
