Mortal Kombat 1 is set to be released in a few months, and fans are eager for a closer look at what NetherRealm Studios has in store. The reboot of the series is already generating excitement with its new world, directed by Liu Kang, and the unique lives of the fighters in this new era.
The studio has hinted that Kombat Kast may soon be returning online, providing regular updates on the game’s development. Given the hints dropped on social media, it seems to be a matter of when, not if, the show will return.

The 12th installment in the long-standing fighting game series, Mortal Kombat 1, serves as a second narrative reboot for the universe, following 2011’s Mortal Kombat. The story continues after Mortal Kombat 11, with the defeat of Kronika and Fire God Liu Kang shaping a new timeline.
Regular characters like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, and Johnny Cage are set to return, while others will appear as Kameo Fighters, selected before the start of a match to assist players.
The Return of Kombat Kast
Hints about the return of Kombat Kast have been dropped on Twitter, with fans of the series asking the official Mortal Kombat account about the possibility of the show’s comeback. While the studio hasn’t provided any specific details, some posts have received responses indicating that the weekly show will be back in the near future.
This news has sparked excitement among fans on platforms like Reddit, who are eager to learn more about the game ahead of its September 2023 release.
The History of Kombat Kast
Kombat Kast was initially launched to promote the release of Mortal Kombat X. It showcased gameplay and revealed new roster members consistently in the months leading up to its April 2015 release. The show continued for several months after, highlighting community matches and debuting DLC fighters such as Predator and Jason Voorhees.
NetherRealm revived the show in the lead-up to Mortal Kombat 11’s 2019 release, using it once again to showcase the game and its characters.
The Timing of Kombat Kast’s Return
The return of Kombat Kast seems to be perfectly timed, given the potential leak of Mortal Kombat 1’s roster.
While there has been no direct confirmation about the accuracy of the leaked roster, it could provide the studio with the incentive to get ahead of any further leaks, especially considering the game’s title and trailer were leaked shortly before being revealed.
