Mortal Kombat X Mobile took the fight to the streets, and anywhere else you went, but with the impending April release of Mortal Kombat 11, the free-to-play card collecting fighter will adopt a new name to reflect its continued expansions. NetherRealm Studios announced the name change and future update in a message to players via Facebook and Twitter:

With Mortal Kombat 11: The Reveal right around the corner, we want to assure our players that Mortal Kombat X Mobile will continue to be the main game for all Mortal Kombat mobile experiences and content.

To better represent the game and its vast Mortal Kombat character roster, we will be officially updating the name to “Mortal Kombat” with our next release! The Mortal Kombat mobile game will continue to improve and expand in 2019 with lots of new content and new characters. Please stay tuned for more updates in the weeks to come!

MKX Mobile has already already gone beyond the final XL version of Mortal Kombat X, offering exclusive characters and content such as Baraka, Jade, and Freddy Krueger. The switch to a more broad is already befitting, and will no doubt grow moreso as new additions are made in 2019 to coincide with Mortal Kombat 11!

What do you hope to see from the expanded platform? Keep watching the Mortal Kombat 11 forum for updates and discussion about MK Mobile. MK11 arrives for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC on April 23rd.
