Being one of the most popular fighting games of all time, fans always contemplate what new characters and old will be included in the next Mortal Kombat. Ed Boon, Creative Director, of Mortal Kombat X has lent some new information during an interview with Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb’s on his latest podcast episode. Details including what fans can expect in the game.

In the interview, Boon explains their new approach when selecting what characters will make it in the game. He went on to say that fans of Mortal Kombat can expect more new characters in the roster then any Mortal Kombat before it.

Boon was of course silent on the details of what exactly to expect, and he hopes to share more information throughout the months.

  1. That’s good to see. I hope they have a DC guest character like Deathstroke or Lobo.

    1. Really dude? Are you on drugs or something?

      1. :/

        1. Hmph. I thought so.

    2. if they do, I figure it might be someone more popular, let’s say batman… I mean they only had scorpion from mk universe in injustice cuz he’s really emblematic

    3. They put Scorpion on a leash with Injustice, his Super Move became his Fatality.
      Spectre, Superman, Sinestro, etc. Batman would be acceptable if it was Blaskest Night Batman, because the only good Batman is a dead Batman.

    4. It would have to be a villain because whoever they choose will have to have a fatality.. DC Universe doesn’t want any of its heroes killing. That’s why DC vs Mortal Kombat sucked even more along with the limited gameplay provided… Mortal Kombat = Bloody deaths

      1. That’s why I chose Deathstroke and Lobo. Lobo once kicked a guy so hard in the nuts his spine flew out. Wouldn’t that be a cool fatality?

    5. No, let’s not please. No need to be ruining the game with shitty DC characters.

      1. Why not? “Shitty DC characters” is a little bit of an overstatement.

        1. Sorry, I’m just sick of cross over characters that’s all. I’ve grown up playing Fighting Games and I really hate seeing them. Just my personal opinion/

          1. It doesn’t need to be a story-based crossover. Just a bonus character to nod at Injustice. Or maybe DLC. I liked having Scorpion in Injustice, so I think that a similar thing would work here.

          2. Ed Boon said there won’t be any DC characters on his twitter.

          3. DC will not allow gory fatalities to be done on their characters so therefore Boon can’t put them in the game.

          4. It doesn’t need to be a story-based crossover. Just a bonus character to nod at Injustice. Or maybe DLC. I liked having Scorpion in Injustice, so I think that a similar thing would work here.

          5. t doesn’t need to be a story-based crossover. Just a bonus character to nod at Injustice. Or maybe DLC. I liked having Scorpion in Injustice, so I think that a similar thing would work here.

            NO!!!! IT FUCKIN WONT!

          6. any reason, or….?

  2. Bigger than Mortal Kombat Armageddon? Didn’t that game have like 50 characters!
    And no no no please no DC characters they would absolutely ruin the game!

  3. The person who wrote this article is a dumbass, What Ed boon meant was there’s going to be more new characters (as in newly created, not from previous games) than any of the older mortal kombat games. Characters like cassie cage, kotal kahn are new characters, characters like reptile, subzero are old characters

  4. The title of this article is misleading. The title states that there will be more characters and any previous MK game in the series, but the article states that there will only be more new characters than any previous games in the series, not that there will be more characters overall.

    1. ^ fact

  5. Mortal Kombat has so many characters as it is that I don’t want any more added. My favourite characters are Kano, Kung Lao and Hsu Hao so I’ll be happy with the character selection as long as those three are in it. As for the overall game, I expect big things from this game judging by how awesome the trailer was… although I am getting a little sick of the trailers centering around Scorpion and Sub-Zero. I get that Scorpion is the most popular Mortal Kombat character for some reason but it would be good to see others take the center stage from time to time.

  6. All Ninjas, Sub, Reptile, Scorpion, Cyrax, Sector, Robot Smoke, Noob Saibot, Ermac, Rain, Chameleon was a missed favourite. Put them in and Ill be good.
