Game Informer Confirms Jade and Goro!

01/08/2011 :: Posted at 04:37 PM by ~Crow~

As promised recently, Game Informer did indeed reveal two new characters in the latest edition of the popular magazine. These two characters are original Mortal Kombat sub-boss Goro and hidden Mortal Kombat 2 fighter Jade!

Ed calls Goro a boss character and there isn't currently a plan to enact his playability and his appearance is the standard Goro fare. Along with this, he is shown firing a projectile and his signature Goro's Lair stage is shown along with him. The remake of this classic background is dark and grizzly, featuring bodies hanging from the ceiling along with a Throne for the Shokan warrior. Jade is a mix of her UMK3 and MKD outfits whilst sporting a new hairstyle and shows off her trademark boomerang projectile reminiscent of it's MKD variant.

In addition, Ed also remarks on their plans for a possible XBox 360 exclusive character to mirror the PS3's Kratos, saying that there is no character planned at the present time. He did however once again mention DLC when this topic was brought up, so it's possible more guest characters could wind up on the roster as DLC bonuses.

Alongside Krato's inclusion in the PS3 version comes an exclusive arena for him. Boon stated that the stage falality for his enviroment is probably the most elaborate stage fatality to ever emerge from the Mortal Kombat franchise. Finishing this statement by saying "it's gonna be something special".

The magazine is currently only available to subscribers. If you subscribe to Game Informer and have not received this issue you most likely will this coming Monday or Tuesday. The magazine will be available in stores at a later date. As we uncover more information about the feature we will update this story to be as thorough as possible.

Thanks to forum member daryui for word on this story and a summary of the magazine contents!
