Mortal Kombat X was easily one of the best best sequels of the year, as it unleashed a gruesome new installment that was heavy on the gore and even heavier on the eSports scene.

And thanks to the retooled characters who boasted a trio of deadly variations, Mortal Kombat X is going to be a tournament favourite for many years to come. Of course, a fighting game is only as good as its roster, and Mortal Kombat X does have plenty of kombatants to choose from.

Since launch, it got four more warriors added to its ranks: Jason Voorhees, the Predator, Tanya and Tremor. Normally, that would be it for post-launch content, but it seems that there may be some more fighters on the way.

That’s according to Mortal Kombat X head honcho Ed Boon, who tweeted the following:

 

Awesome! Hopefully this new roster will see one or two crossover characters like the Predator or Jason, because that kind of content is always welcome in my book. Although I’d also bet easy money that we may finally see Rain and Baraka in Mortal Kombat X.

Even though I wasn’t supposed to announce it, I can konfirm that after my recent victory against those guys at the Mortal Kombat X tournament, that I’m probably being included in that roster. I’m breaking embargo here, so here’s a list of my variations that can be used in the game:

Mortal-D

  • Hit with stick – HIT WITH STICK! HIT WITH STICK! HIT WITH STICK!
  • Photoshop punisher – Watch it bro, I’ll like totally shop your head onto an ostrich body or something if you lay a hand on me. THE STYLUS IS MIGHTIER THAN THE SWORD!
  • Comic Book Chaos – Zone-control combos as I bore opponents to death about the one time that Mr Mxypytlyk and Bat-Mite teamed up in an issue of World’s Finest in order to save the day from a sixth-dimensional threat.

Try not to get the digital version of me killed, if you don’t mind.

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!
