PS4 Brawler Mortal Kombat X Will KO Two New Kombatants Next Week

Finish him

If you were worried that Mortal Kombat X would be more of a retread than a revolution, then toss your doubts out of the ring: NetherRealm Studios’ head honcho Ed Boon has confirmed that a chunk of the PlayStation 4 and PlayStation 3 fighter’s roster will be revealed at E3 2014 next week – and two new warriors will be entering the blood thirsty fray.

In addition to the fresh challengers, the excitable executive also hinted that the big show will play host to plot details – which purportedly picks up directly after the previous game – as well as some gameplay footage. We’ve heard on the grapevine that this will be appearing during Sony’s press conference, but we’re not sure how accurate those rumours are.

It would make sense for the platform holder to partner with the fighter, though. In addition to its existing ties with Warner Bros, the firm was a big proponent of the previous Mortal Kombat – even working with the developer to include anti-hero Kratos in the roster. Moreover, Injustice: Gods Among Us launched as a next-gen exclusive on Sony’s machine, suggesting that the firms have some kind of deal in place.

Pretty damn excited for this game. Is it possible we might see batman in the roster? I'd like to see ryo hazuki and simon adebisi.

@SimonAdebisi I was wondering whether we'll get a guest character, too. Batman's definitely possible considering the publisher, but it depends whether they're happy to let him get decapitated, etc. I can't think of a better fit than Kratos if there's a Sony character in the game, but that's already been done.

Shinnok will definitely be in if the plot picks up right after. I can't remember if quan chi in the last game.

If they're doing juest charcter's than lets see.

DC: Aquaman or a magic based character
Sony: Kratos
Microsoft: Jago or Fulgore

Kratos was really good in the previous MK game. Hopefully they tone him down a bit to balance him out as he was extremely overpowered before.

I dunno, when the creator of the game tweets out "Sony E3 hype!" along with a video of Kaz Hirai's face photoshopped onto the guy from the new Tron movie being given a "Megaton disc" for E3 2014, it feels a little...confirmation-y.

Really looking forward to seeing what this game looks like in action.

Also hoping for a story mode like the 2011 MK game.

@SimonAdebisi batman would be awesome but it would go against his character to be killing opponents. Dead pool would fit the mortal kombat style or the joker. They are both happy to leave bodies littered around.

Got no guesses as to who the characters could be. Just looking forward to learning more about the game. If they could make it work though, the psychotic Sweet Tooth would be a cool character for the PS versions.
