The new Mortal Kombat is coming out next year. With that just around the corner Neather Realm are slowly revealing their aces hidden up their sleeves. Earlier on we were treated to a fantastic announcement trailer showcasing a fight to the death between ever lasting enemies SubZero and Scorpion in the presence of Shao Khan.
The battle is epic until Shao Khan decides it’s time for Scorpion to end it, “FINISH HIM”. Now here’s the surprise, out of no where we see Kratos the God Of War jump into the arena and charges at Scorpion just before the trailer ends.
So we got to know that Neather Realm’s surprise for the fans was in the announcement that each console version will have a character from their exclusives. The Sony version (PS3) got Kratos as we all saw from the trailer which I have no idea links how with the Mortal Kombat mythology. I mean he did die at the end of God of War 3 didn’t he? or at least it looked liked that. But even if he didn’t, how come he has decided to enter the Mortal Kombat tournament which is the survival battle for the earth realm? If you think that’s tough to accept keep on reading.
Cliff Blezinsky and Ed Boon teased via twitter that the Xbox 360 version will have a character from Gears of War and Call of Duty. Now, this really started a flame war every where but relax since its probably a joke on Cliff’s part.
However, let’s for a moment imagine if this isn’t a joke, how interesting things would be then. So Marcus Fenix from Gears of War makes it to the MK roster and I’m thinking Captain Price from Call of Duty. Now here’s some food for thought, we have Shang tsun who likes to devour souls of his victims, we have Goro a behemoth with four arms, Subzero who can turn everything to ice and then we have Captain Price with war experience and an awesome scoper.
Now let’s look at the fatalities for which Mortal Kombat is famous for; where everyone has to mutilate, decapitate or destroy their opponents what do we expect Captain Price to do? Throw a grenade and jump back yelling “GRANAADA!”.
Marcus Fenix might take out his lancer assault rifle to chainsaw his victims or make them explode with sheer awesomeness after they hear one of his badass quotes.
While we’re at it, let’s see what other Microsoft characters would be like in their match ups with the traditional MK members if they made it to the roster.
