Mortal Kombat 1 Jade: Is She in MK1?

Mortal Kombat 1 Jade: Is She in MK1?

A Mortal Kombat 1 Jade roster slot would appease many fans. She’s one of the handful of fighters who has a devoted fanbase, one that was riled up over her snub in Mortal Kombat X. So is Jade in MK1? And is she rumored to be in an upcoming batch of DLC?

Is Jade in MK1?

Jade is not currently in Mortal Kombat 1. While the game shipped with Kitana and Mileena, Jade did not make the cut. This is a pattern, as Mortal Kombat X and Mortal Kombat 11 only released with two of the main female ninjas. Mileena only made her way to Mortal Kombat 11 in its last DLC pack after a lot of fan demand (some of which went far past being “demands”). Series co-creator Ed Boon also joked on Twitter that he gets asked a lot about Jade in MK1.

However, it does seem like Jade is slated to come to Mortal Kombat 1 sometime in the future. Reliable Mortal Kombat dataminer thethiny has found evidence of Jade’s existence in the code. Jade is very clearly referenced in the game’s unfinished dialogue files, as it has her name alongside her lines. Many other future DLC characters past Kombat Pack 1 that are also in the code aren’t as overtly mentioned, meaning they have blank lines that only hint at who’s coming next.

More Mortal Kombat 1

Given thethiny’s track record and NetherRealm Studios’ ability to listen to fans regarding DLC, it seems inevitable that Jade will come to Mortal Kombat 1.

When she comes, however, is a vastly different story. NetherRealm has not outright confirmed when Kombat Pack 1’s last fighter will release. It only noted that Homelander would come out in spring 2024, but did not say if he would be the final fighter in that DLC pack. It’s also not clear if NetherRealm will release characters in batches or put one out every couple months, as it did both for Mortal Kombat 11.

MK1 Jade FAQ

A: Yes, there is evidence to suggest that Jade may be added to Mortal Kombat 1.

A: NetherRealm Studios has not confirmed the release date for Kombat Pack 1’s last fighter and has only mentioned that Homelander is set to release in spring 2024.
