Mortal Kombat 1 Narrates Its Gruesome Fatalities To You With New Accessibility Option

This accessibility option is both extremely helpful and funny.


The Mortal Kombat 1 preorder beta ran this past weekend, and one player has discovered that the game has an accessibility option that narrates fatalities to you, and it's both helpful and hilarious.

The news comes from X user (Twitter) Edmond Tran. In the post, it reads:

Now Playing: Mortal Kombat 1 Beta All X-Rays, Fatalities, Kameo Fatalities and Brutalities So Far

"Also, HOLY S--T #MortalKombat1 has a descriptive audio option for Fatalities and it is ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE."

In the video, we're shown two Li Mei, with one of them about to perform a fatality on the other. As soon as the animation begins, a narrator begins to describe what Le Mei is doing to her opponent, and the narration sounds like something you'd hear in an animal documentary when a lion is about to eat its prey. What makes it even more funnier is how calmly the narrator describes these horrific actions.

If you want to see even more videos like this and have a few minutes to spare, head over to the GamesHubDotCom TikTok account, where they captured footage of a handful of other fatalities with the same narrator describing what's happening.

Mortal Kombat 1 is scheduled to come out later this year on September 14 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
