Many had expected the first PS5 gameplay of Mortal Kombat 1 to debut during this week’s PS Showcase, as Sony is a big player in the fighting game community and has been a long-running partner on Mortal Kombat 11. But no – the world gameplay premiere will instead air during Geoff Keighley’s Summer Game Fest broadcast on 8th June, where it’ll be presented by series creator Ed Boon.
It’s possible PlayStation may still show some kind of Mortal Kombat 1 cinematic trailer during its event later this week, but seeing as the game has already received one of those, it seems unlikely. This also suggests Sony may not have marketing rights to the release, which was expected after it snapped up the likes of Street Fighter 6.
Either way, this gameplay reveal is likely to be one of the highlights of Summer Game Fest, as new Mortal Kombat games always look incredible. We’re excited to get our first glimpse in a little over two weeks’ time.
Atleast we know one game so far not at PlayStation showcase
I was kind of thinking the same thing regarding Death Stranding 2.
Likely get a trailer in tomorrow's showcase but gameplay won't be revealed until the Summer Fest. I know Kojima is buddies with Keighley so he'll definitely have something for his show.
Wish I had known this before answering the question in the other article.
The only reason I had to think MK was going to be there is the business relationship WB games and Sony have right now and how it proved to be successful in hogwarts legacy. Also the fact Bandai didn't care about SF6 and gave Tekken 8 rights to Sony, but it looks like WB cares LOL.
Good, I want to see that gameplay but if it isn't in tomorrow's show more time for other games.
Thank god! I'd hate for a second of Sonys showcase to be wasted on a fighting game.
@Deadlyblack more like Doritos man is Kojima's holster iykwim LOL
I'm happy we're getting a new SF game and a new MK game in the same year like it's 1992.
Well, At least I already got one right on that prediction quiz
Yes got one right in the quiz. MK felt like an odd fit to me. Street Fighter 6 or Tekken 8 always felt way more likely to me.
Even more time for the Last of Us multiplayer!!
Damn, now I'll never know what kind of game Mortal Kombat will be!
I was expecting a MK1 trailer in the PS showcase since Sony loves to show fighting games. Even if this won't be in the showcase, there's going to be a fighting game related trailer there. Since this is already very unlikely, my money will go to another Tekken character reveal (possibly Yoshimitsu).
Totally fine with that choice.
@Uncharted2007 same lmao
Good, one less game to take up time for the PS Showcase, same good news with P3R being at the Xbox showcase instead
Good! Nothing against it, but who needs a "reveal" of the 12th, er, 1st game in a fighting series?
@nofriendo No offense, but what a dumb take.
Thanks for sharing, glad to know this won't be eating up time at the Showcase.
