Every Confirmed Character in Mortal Kombat 1

According to the game’s official FAQ page, Liu Kang, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kung Lao, Kitana, Mileena, Johnny Cage, Raiden, and Shang Tsung are confirmed to be part of the Mortal Kombat 1 roster.

Also according to the game’s FAQ, although the characters above are not set to be the only ones available as part of the game’s base roster, Mortal Kombat 1 will also receive at least 5 characters as part of post-launch updates.

Given the way Johnny Cage is confirmed to be part of the roster, as well as the fact that Mortal Kombat 1 will most likely be a sort of soft reboot of the franchise, it is no stretch to say that it is highly likely that both Sonya Blade and Jax will also be part of the game’s initial roster.
