Mortal Kombat 1: Reptile’s Return Teased by Ed Boon

Mortal Kombat 1

Hey there, Mortal Kombat enthusiasts! The rumor mill is churning, and it looks like our wishes might just come true. Ed Boon, the mischievous mastermind behind Mortal Kombat, has been dropping tantalizing hints about one of our favorite characters, Reptile, making his grand comeback in Mortal Kombat 1. It’s time to get hyped!

Ed Boon, notorious for playfully toying with fans on social media, has been slyly teasing the next installment in the Mortal Kombat series. From asking about classic gameplay modes to mysterious tweets, he’s definitely got us all digging for clues. His latest posts indicate that Mortal Kombat 1 might draw inspiration from the 3D-era of the 2000s, which has us excited for a roster packed with beloved characters like Reiko, Jarek, and the enigmatic Ashrah from Mortal Kombat Deception.

But hold up! It seems like Reptile might just have the spotlight this time. One Twitter user, thethiny, pointed out that Ed Boon posted a photo of the KFC parking lot where the green-scaled ninja first came to life in the minds of the Mortal Kombat creators. That’s a clear sign that Reptile could be slithering his way back into the game and into our hearts. From his humble beginnings as a hidden character in the very first Mortal Kombat to a fan-favorite fighter in subsequent titles, Reptile’s evolution as a character has been truly remarkable.

In the original Mortal Kombat timeline, Reptile was a fierce member of the Saurian race, serving Outworld and its formidable leaders. We last saw him in Mortal Kombat 10, lending a clawed hand in overthrowing Mileena and joining Outworld’s attack on Earthrealm. Now, there have been leaks suggesting Reptile’s return in Mortal Kombat 1, but nothing has been officially confirmed…yet. Fingers crossed that Ed Boon’s teases point us in the right direction!

The anticipation is building, my friends. Will the reptilian warrior grace the stage during the next mind-blowing Kombat Kast livestream? Only time will tell, but mark your calendars and keep your eyes peeled, as it’s happening next week! Let’s hope that Reptile finally emerges from the shadows, ready to dish out scaly justice like no other.

Mortal Kombat 1, the game we’ve all been eagerly waiting for, is set to release on September 19 for PC, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series X/S. Get ready to unleash your inner fighter and experience the thrill of a lifetime!

Stay tuned for more Mortal Kombat awesomeness. And remember, Flawless Victory is just around the corner!
