Take a stroll, Cole
There have been a ton of characters in the Mortal Kombat franchise over the years, and one of them is Cole Young. The thing is, Cole has never been in a Mortal Kombat game. Instead, he comes from the 2021 Mortal Kombat movie, and it sounds like that’s where he’s going to stay.
NetherRealm recently revealed Mortal Kombat 1, which is a restart for the iconic franchise. It’s going to bring back fan-favorite characters and fresh faces, but Cole Young won’t be joining the cast.
According to a Comicbook.com interview with NetherRealm’s Lead Systems Designer Derek Kirtzic, the dev team behind Mortal Kombat 1 is leaving the characters of the Mortal Kombat movie to the cinematic side of things. In other words, the only chance you’ll get of seeing more Cole is on the big screen.
