Reptile could possibly be in Mortal Komabt 11. This hasn’t been confirmed as of yet, but reading between the lines it could be possible. This all happened when the art director of NetherRealm Studios Steve Beran used Reptile as an example by saying ” then there’s certain things like you can activate Reptile’s Acid Ball…” Of course, that is not a very solid confirmation, but since Reptile had been a part of the roster for so long, we kind of expect it already.

The game is able to hit 60 FPS at 1440p using a RTX 2080Ti.
