It feels like just about every major fighting game has a mobile title out in the wild now (except for Guilty Gear), and some of them even have multiple now.
NetherRealm Studios finally announced that Mortal Kombat: Onslaught is releasing later this month.
After first getting revealed almost a year ago, MK Onslaught will be launching on Android and iOS devices starting October 17, 2023.

There’s a pre-registration campaign going on for the game now with more rewards as they approach 1 million signups, which sits at over 600,000 as of the time of reporting.
Instead of a fighting game, MK Onslaught will be a gacha team-building RPG using characters and designs from across the Mortal Kombat realms.

The other big draw of the game is what it’s calling the series’ “first mobile-exclusive cinematic story experience.”
Like Street Fighter: Duel, Onslaught finds itself in an odd spot considering it’s taking after Mortal Kombat 11’s designs and characters while the new game is now available.
MK Onslaught did actually briefly leak online last year too, but the official launch is right around the corner now.
