Mortal Kombat 11 Adds Hogwarts Legacy Ads to Main Menu

Mortal Kombat 11 Features Hogwarts Legacy Ads in Main Menu in Surprising Move

Have you been having a blast with Mortal Kombat 11? If so, you might be interested in purchasing Hogwarts Legacy! This unexpected connection comes as NetherRealm Studios’ renowned fighting game’s main menu now features advertisements for another Warner Bros’ blockbuster title.

This is a unique situation, as evidenced by Reddit screenshots displaying large banners promoting Avalanche’s wizarding adventure right on the game’s home screen. There’s even a hyperlink that likely directs players straight to the PlayStation Store!


It’s understandable that the publisher would want to cross-promote its games, but in-game advertising has historically not been well-received by gaming enthusiasts. Remember when Sony attempted to include commercials in WipEout HD for the PlayStation 3?

It remains to be seen whether the backlash will be intense enough for Warner Bros to reconsider these ads. However, with the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat 12 seemingly just around the corner, we’re not too hopeful about any significant changes.
