Mortal Kombat 1 introduces new Kameo Fighter feature

Mortal Kombat's take on assists will be introduced in the next installment in the venerable gore-filled franchise.

The Kameo Fighter feature could play an important role in the competitive future of Mortal Kombat.

Mortal Kombat has been dominating the gaming headlines these past few days, and it's for a good reason. After the initial reveal of NetherRealm Studios, it has started to unveil several crunchy details about the upcoming pseudo-reboot of the Mortal Kombat universe. We've just found out that Jean Claude Van Damme is going to be a playable skin for Johnny Cage in the game while early access is possible for a select few. But, the biggest surprise of all has to be the addition of a new feature: the Kameo Fighter.

Kameo Fighters play a crucial role in Mortal Kombat 1. They're not playable characters nor part of the main roster but they can assist players n the heat of the battle. They jump in to help you, the player, to land powerful blows and combos, taking the game to a whole new level of exhilaration.

The Kameo Fighters of Mortal Kombat 1 will likely feature a list of characters handpicked from the history of the franchise. These are fan favourite characters, which help bring a sense of nostalgia along with them. Their added presence in the game should make it more enjoyable, reminding fans of the classic Mortal Kombat 1 experience while adding a fresh twist.

We're hoping NetherRealm finds a way to integrate the Kameo Fighter feature of Mortal Kombat 1 into its lore.

Unfortunately, we've got no idea who will join Mortal Kombat 1 as Kameo Fighters. But, we do know NetherRealm will add some to the game post-launch, which is a sign that they'll play a major role, at least combat-wise.

The strategic element Kameo Fighters bring to the game is difficult to quantify. Using them wisely can turn the tide of a battle in a heartbeat. They aren't just characters to pop up randomly; you need to know when to call them and how best to use their abilities. It's a fresh challenge that enhances the fun of playing Mortal Kombat 1.

Mortal Kombat 1 will be out on September 19 but early access starts on September 14.

NetherRealm could use the Kameo Fighter system to introduce (or bring back) obscure characters. The long-rumored third-party additions like Conan the Barbarian as well as Homelander and Peacemaker could be a part of the Kameo Fighter roster for Mortal Kombat 1.
