Mortal Kombat X will have DLC and guest characters

2 min read


I don’t think we’ll ever see fighting games fully embrace the idea of unlockable fighters ever again. Hell, why do that when you can make some extra cash charging gamers for that content anyway? NetherRealm has done this twice already, with the recent Injustice: Gods Among Us having several DLC characters available. Expect Mortal Kombat X to have a few such brawlers as well.

Speaking to Madcatz (Via MP1st), Mortal Kombat co-creator explained that while Mortal Kombat X would feature DLC characters, at least one ‘guest’ fighter was in the pipeline as well. It’s not exactly a new idea this. Back in Mortal kombat 9 already, Sony players could grab God of War’s Kratos as an incentive for sticking to that platform, while Freddy Krueger made a debut not long after on all systems. Kiefer Sutherland recently said he was recording for Mortal Kombat – so we could see Big Boss make an appearance. Or, even cooler, we may see Jack Bauer himself.

Moving on, Injustice: Gods Among Us saw Scorpion drop in from the Mortal Kombat universe as a DLC fighter. So who could guest star in Mortal Kombat? As much as I’d like to imagine that it’d be Batman, seeing as Mortal Kombat X and Arkham Knight share a publishing parent in Warner Bros Interactive, even the dark knight isn’t brutal enough for that game.

But that doesn’t mean that someone from that universe can’t be in the game. Hell, throw Deathstroke in, and you’d have a pre-order bonus right there. He’s a merc, and has already popped up in Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe and the aforementioned Injustice, much to the delight of those damn bullet spammers in online play.

Who would you dig to see guest star in the game?

Something wrong gentlemen? You come here prepared to read the words of a madman, and instead found a lunatic obsessed with comics, Batman and Raul Julia's M Bison performance in the 1994 Street Fighter movie? Fine! Keep your bio! In fact, now might be a good time to pray to it!

  • Umar Fong Wong

    I dont like MK but if it featured Tingle I would buy it in a heartbeat

  • Alien Emperor Trevor

    What would Batman’s fatality be? Keep taking his opponent back to Arkham Asylum after he escapes until he dies of old age?

    • Rince&pop

      Careful, those are more than just fighting words for Darryn…

    • Admiral Chief Fairburne


    • Hammersteyn

      Batman would stage a fight on a tower or a high rise building. He and his opponent would trade blows and soon after his opponent slips and falls. Batman will feign some vain attempt to save him only to have his opponents hand slip out of his hand or he will throw a batarang that will not reach his opponent in time or the cable will break, Batman then returns to the Batcave remorsefully sitting in his chair contemplating his failure not to kill…..

      Now his second fatality……….

        “Batman then returns to the Batcave remorsefully sitting in his chair contemplating his failure not to kill… OR WAS IT FAILURE” 0_O

    • Kensei Seraph
    • Thats_how_I_Troll

      He summons Brenda, that babality’s off your head… by beating you with her baby hands

      • Alien Emperor Trevor

        Sounds more like a FUTILITY.

        • Thats_how_I_Troll

          Cause sometimes….

  • Hammersteyn

    If they had a crossover with Marvel I would bet my car it would have been Wolverine. I absolutely loathe this DLC bullshit. I don’t think I want to play anymore but I will probably buy this day one like the dumb ass I am.

    • Kensei Seraph

      If it was Capcom… I wonder how many versions would be released?

      • Hammersteyn

        LOL yeah

  • Rince&pop

    No no no! No more bloody ‘extra’ DLC characters. For the love of all things decent, make it a full game!

  • Viking Of Science

    How about they give us Ed Boon as a character…. that’d be sweet.

  • Jim Lenoir (Banana Jim)
    • Sir Rants A Lot Llew

      This dude is trying to sell something isn’t he?

  • Viking Of Science

    I Just read the Wiki of Mortal Kombat Kharakters. If they Give us Every Single Kharakter inkluding the 4 konfirmed new ones, there will be 69 Kombatants…. and that would Kick Ass!

  • Hammersteyn

    Hows about if Pudge was a DLC character? Or maybe Lich and Shadow Demon?

  • Dutch Matrix

    Much as I am not the greatest Gears of War fan out there, a while back I read that Cliffy B had some interest in getting Marcus Fenix into Mortal Kombat. Lancer fatalities MK style would be awesome.

  • Purple_Dragon


  • Great opportunity for a character like Spawn. Think he’d fit in rather well.

  • Dutch Matrix

    Ted Mosby from How I met your Mother. His fatality? After beating the snot out of you, he puts you on a couch and tells you How he met Your Mother and how many times he had sex with her, how many times he wanted to have sex with her but could not and how many times his wise cracking best friend had sex with her.
    It ends with you slitting your wrists with your front teeth you painfully retrieve from the floor.

  • Joe Nida

    Hate DLC and I’m not liking the fact the MK universe is crossing over with guests, BUT if it must happen, I think Predator, Spawn, or Slenderman would all be good fits

  • Thats_how_I_Troll

    I think Thor can actually fit into that game… And maybe Iron-man?

    • daniel.neron

      what about blade

  • Anon

    if harley quinn was DLC I would be so happy

  • daniel.neron

    If they could put Blade and Alex Mercer that would be cool
