Shang Tsung paired with Tremor can technically perform a touch of death sequence against Kung Lao in Mortal Kombat 1

Tremor is the new Kameo that's usable in Mortal Kombat 1. As such, the community has been exploring the capabilities of Kameo Tremor to see where he'll end up in the current meta.

One unique thing about Tremor is that there's a way to turn any of his assists into an ambush assist, though this will require an entire Kameo gauge to pull off. Considering that Tremor is capable of using lows and overheads, the community has already discovered some particularly nasty setups.

Just yesterday, we reported on a certain fan holding up a sign at a pay-per-view wrestling event, pleading with Ed Boon to add a Wi-Fi filter to Mortal Kombat 1. Though Boon has responded to these sort of stunts before, this particular situation was seemingly putting the NetherRealm Studios title in a negative light.

However, it seems that Ed Boon did end up responding to the fan's bold way of requesting a Wi-Fi filter. As it turns out, NRS has been working hard towards implementing some much needed features for the game.

Unsurprisingly, Mortal Kombat 1 appears to be performing quite well in North America at least, but just how many people are picking it up?

The NPD Group / Circana recently released its October 2023 video game sales charts for the United States that shows MK1 still ranking fairly high though seemingly behind where its predecessor was at the same time.

Player 2 being unable to customize their cosmetics as a guest is apparently intended within Mortal Kombat 1

Mortal Kombat 1 is a game that features a ton of unlockables, with more being added every so often. While a number of these unlockables can be accessed either by playing through Invasions or Kombat League, there are also plenty of others that are effectively locked behind a paywall.

Regardless, many of the unlockable cosmetics can only be accessed by player 1 when playing against an opponent in offline matches. Unfortunately, Warner Bros. recently commented how this is actually an intended feature of Mortal Kombat 1.

Nitara's original Deadly Alliance costume just hit the Mortal Kombat 1 store

Nitara made her Mortal Kombat debut all the way back in 2002's Deadly Alliance, and save for an appearance in 2006's "everyone is here" Armageddon, the vampiric beauty hasn't been around much.

Mortal Kombat 1 changed that as Nitara was brought on as part of the launch roster, and it seems developers at NetherRealm Studios are giving us a bit of a blast from past with this latest version as a brand new nostalgia costume just hit the in-game store.

Mortal Kombat 1's Seasonal Fatalities bundle is now available for purchase and provides a tiny glimpse at the upcoming Winter finisher

The most controversial Fatality bundle that ever existed is now available for purchase in Mortal Kombat 1. Fortunately, what we have today isn't quite as bad as what initially was — in fact it's quite a bit better — but if you're keen, you can now pick up the game's Seasonal Fatality bundle.

This 'History of Bosses in Mortal Kombat' video breaks down how many times all of the series' big baddies have been the main villain

When you think of main bosses in the Mortal Kombat series, I'm sure a few names come to mind. Shang Tsung being the original big baddie paved the way for the likes of series mainstay Shao Kahn, and there have been several others who have gotten the opportunity to raise hell over the last 30 years of Mortal Kombat.

A new video made by UncannyCarlos on X (formerly Twitter), that has gotten the attention of Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, provides a great breakdown of all of the bosses that we've seen in Mortal Kombat games over the years. When you look at the actual statistics, there are some interesting realizations to be made.

Upcoming Mortal Kombat 1 PC mod aims to make the Kameo Fighters into playable characters and there's already footage of it in action

Mortal Kombat 1's combat system revolves around 2v2 battles. You take control of a main playable character and choose one Kameo Fighter (assist) that contributes attacks to your fight with the press of a quick button.

While the system itself has been fairly well received by fans, there are undoubtedly some folks who aren't the happiest that their favorite characters have been relegated to just a Kameo Fighter and not an actual playable character. However, the PC mod community is now working on a way to make it so that you can actually select the Kameo characters and play them on point as main roster fighters instead.

Omni-Man brought an Easter egg referencing the movie Whiplash with him to Mortal Kombat 1

Mortal Kombat 1's first and latest DLC character, Invincible's Omni-Man, holds a lot of surprises that fans are still finding. Outside of the best combos and tech to use for the fighter — as well as a weird bug that allows Omni-Man to pull the screen and reposition his opponent using his air back dash — some of the best little Easter eggs have been found within the character's pre-fight dialogue with other kombatants.

We recently saw Sindel revisit her most iconic line from the Mortal Kombat movie when going up against Omni-Man, but she isn't the only one who uses movie lines in her intros. Omni-Man is voiced in the source material and in Mortal Kombat 1 by accomplished actor J.K. Simmons, and it has now been confirmed that the Superman-like villain actually tosses out one of Simmons' lines from his role in the movie Whiplash — and it's fantastic.

Another incredible classic skin is available in Mortal Kombat 1 right now and it brings Deadly Alliance's Sub-Zero back into the fray

The developers behind Mortal Kombat 1 have been under a bit of fire lately for their additional content pricing practices. Outside of costumes and gear being priced fairly high for a full retail title, a Halloween-themed Fatality that runs you about $10 USD for a single finisher has been the largest magnet for backlash over the last month or so — though Warner Bros. Games and NetherRealm Studios have taken steps to correct this and do right by fans.

All of that having been said, there are some really great bits of additional content in Mortal Kombat 1 that deserve praise. One of the latest costumes that you can buy right now in the Premium Shop sees classic contender Sub-Zero return to the 3D days with his Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance skin — and it looks great.
