Looks like Goro’s coming to Mortal Kombat X

1 min read

Forewarned is forearmed. Goro is fourarmed. Ergo, Goro is forewarned.

Some people were disappointed that the latest, PAX-centric build of the upcoming, terribly brutal fighting game from NetherRealms featured no new characters. That hasn’t stopped studio head and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon from teasing who the next character would be.

He first started with this little teasing picture – which not only hints at a particular character, but makes me rather jealous. I’d kill people to have an arcade.


Soon after, he tweeted out this bit. And everyone loves a bit of head.

I think we can all safely assume that Goro will be in the next Mortal Kombat. I’m interested in how his variations will work; with his four arms, he’d be a natural grappler – but that leaves two play styles to go.

Goro made his debut in the very first Mortal Kombat as an unplayable boss character – right before players had to square off against Shang Tsung.  It’s quite likely that Goro won’t be the only Shokan warrior in MKX either; there have been a few hints that Sheeva will make an appearance too.

If there’s any of the old Mk characters I’d love to be announced for this new game, it’d have to be Kung Lao. I think, according to the canon, that he’s dead at this point…but I love his hat too much too care.

    What’s his fatality going to be? A 200 km/h serve right to the FACE?

      a 200Km/h serve is kinda average, with the fastest serve recorded at over 260km/h. The fastest woman’s serve is 210km/h. So I think Goro will have to serve up something a bit quicker to get anything lethal.

      I wait, pointless facts that nobody cares about? I’ll show myself out now.

        Good thing I didn’t go with my original guess of 120km/h haha

    The boss in MK1 was Shang Tsung, not Shao Khan as you have written.

    Would be great if was a shokan playable character … are Goro and Kintaro alive after MK 9 ?

    Agree with Kung Lao, such a cool character… almost certain to be some Buddhist Monk type dude a la Kung Lao / Liu Kang


    • TheSneakyLizard

      September 4, 2014 at 22:37

      Yeah, Kintaro and Goro are alive. They were just knocked out by Cyber Sub-Zero.

      It would be great to have both Goro and Kintaro playable.
