Evo 2023: Ed Boon Teases Reptile Reveal in Next Mortal Kombat Game
It appears that a new Mortal Kombat game is in the works from series creator Ed Boon. Boon teased the upcoming game’s inclusion of the classic kombo fighter Reptile in a tweet yesterday, marking what appears to be the first tease of the highly anticipated Evo 2023 title.
The tweet, which included a silhouetted image of Reptile, follows slightly cryptic tweets from Boon earlier this week, including one that said “See You at Evo 2023”. These messages have left fans scrambling to figure out what it all means, with many speculating that a new Mortal Kombat game is in the works for the popular fighting game tournament.
Speculation is high, with many fans pointing to the possibility of an official announcement of the game during the Evo 2023 tournament. Boon has remained tight-lipped about the project, other than to say that Reptile is “coming back in a big way.”
While fans anxiously wait for more details to emerge, one thing’s for sure: the classic Mortal Kombat fighter is undoubtedly going to be a part of the next installment. We’ve seen why Reptile deserves his spot in the tournament, and we’re sure that there will be plenty of surprises in store when the title is eventually released.
Until then, all we can do is speculate about what’s in store, and wait impatiently for Boon’s next tweet.
