NetherRealm Studios has released a new video teasing the next entry in the legendary Mortal Kombat series, and many fans are speculating that the video could hint at a reboot.
NetherRealm shared a first sneak peek earlier this month, which is a video celebrating the 30th anniversary of Mortal Kombat’s release. The video shows grains of sand constantly flowing in an hourglass before the image suddenly focuses on the last grain as it explodes.
It’s been four years since Mortal Kombat 11 was released, and fans of the fighting game franchise immediately began speculating about the content of the mysterious video from the publisher leading up to a Mortal Kombat 12 reveal, theorizing that the hourglass changes time. and the space in the video belongs to Kronika, the final boss in MK11 has somehow reset the universe.
The above theory provides a good reason to update the 30-year series, and NetherRealm’s latest teaser makes this possibility even more likely. In the new video, viewers are followed by the movement of the clock’s second hand towards the number 12. However, at the last moment, the clock hands jump over the number 12 and turn on the number 1, causing speculations. about reboot.
The next Mortal Kombat game doesn’t have an official release time yet, but fans won’t have to wait too long to experience the next blockbuster from NetherRealm Studios. The title “About About Time” accompanies the trailer and prior confirmation from publisher Warner Bros. that the game will be landing this year.
