Kratos Confirmed For Mortal Kombat at VGAs!

After months of rumors and this last week's revelations, Kratos from God of War fame has finally been officially confirmed to appear in the first quarter 2011 game! As previously announced, a new playable character would be revealed on Spike TV's annual VGA show.

In a new trailer featuring a fight between icons Scorpion and Sub-Zero, Shao Kahn oversees the combat in a fiery new arena also debuting in this trailer. Kahn issues his trademark "Finish Him!" after Scorpion defeats his rival, but before he can Sub-Zero is yanked off screen. Scorpion stands puzzled as Kratos steps onto the field, flaming swords in hand. Scorpion regains his composure and fires a spear towards Kratos, which he blocks with his weapons. We will undoubtedly see more of Kratos's in game fighting style, special moves and fatalities at a later date, but this confirmation seals his appearance in the Mortal Kombat world.

Click here to check out the trailer on GameTrailers!

Update: We have added the Extended trailer for stream and download, click and enjoy!

I hope the Xbox 360 version is guest character free.

Trailer was cool but the reveal is a major disappointment. In this case no reveal at all would have actually been better. Sad.

Whats even worse is that they don't seem to listen to the fans' wants cause it is painfully obvious that the majority didn't want Kratos in.

Lame.

I would have rather seen Stryker beating the crap out of Scorpion than seeing Kratos ruin the trailer.

The trailer itself was cool, but, only thanks to Kahn and the cinematic direction.

Another big YAWN for the silly boring ninjas.

So, is this the reason there was no "fatality friday" and the reason why it was postponed for an extra day?....You have to be kidding me.

Anyway, does anyone know if there is more MK stuff coming up in the awards show? Or was that it?

This! If there's ONE topic NRS should read, then it's this one!

NO XBOX 360 GUEST CHARACTERS... from outside the MK universe.

When I first saw Sub-Zero get dragged of screen, I thought it was Shang Tsung using Scorpion's form. Then Kratos jumps out of the ground and my hopes are shattered.

Turn on your light and they'll see you. Make a sound and they'll hear you. If you think it's scary being lost... Just wait till you're found

RE: Kratos Confirmed For Mortal Kombat at Spike TV VGAs!

i can no longer take this game serously. i know it wasnt the MK teams idea to put him in WB prob made them do it, but still its never been done in an MK game before and im not a fan. at least i have a 360 and wont have to deal with that bull, but im sure we will have an xbox exclusive as well.

RE: Kratos Confirmed For Mortal Kombat at Spike TV VGAs!

Begining of the trailer was good. Up until "Finsh Him!!" moment and "oh so" anticipated reveal. Oh, well.
Quite sad, that NRS / WB decided to pull out gimmickery. At least it not at the level of MKvsDC, but still annoying and completely unnecessary. Especially with all this talk about bringing MK to it's roots and making it tournament worthy game
Seems they don't believe that MK could live without outside support.
I hope that they at least will have enough sense to not put Kratos's face on the box with the game like Soul Calibur 4 did it.

Anyway the question is: will be there any exclusive characters in the Xbox version or not? Though at this point it really doesn't matter...

That trailer was so fucking cool,though.

Oh and another thing: the Shao Kahn with hair ridges on his helmet? You know,the design everybody hated? Maybe it's just me,but for some reason this trailer made it look fucking awesome.

Look its not like its going to break the game, i mean soul caliber did this and the game sold well. There just doing this to make all the fanboys happy thats all, You don't like him don't play him simple.

Also hes probley going to be a DLC filler and not in the spot in the lineup.

It matters to me. I can still take the game seriously so long as MY version is pure, guest-free MK.

That said, a thought occurs. When the trailer aired on TV, the end had an ad promoting preordering at Gamestop. I wonder if that means Kratos will be a preorder exclusive and that way, all you have to do to not deal with him is not preorder.

Why is everyone bitching so much. If you don't like him don't use him. He is not in the story.

I see it as a plus

1. New Fighter
2. New Fatalities
3. New Stage to fight on( was that it in the trailor?) it didn't look like Hell
4. New Stage Fatality (possible)
5. Not Cannon to the story

ONLY NEGATIVE

NOT IN THE XBOX 360 Version

Haha! Kratos fit excellently in the trailer. Bitch all you guys want, MK did a good thing bringing in Kratos. I've been a fan since I was like 9 and MK could use some characters as interesting as Kratos. I just hope the 360 gets someone who fits as well as the God of War.

MK is great, but there are other games out there. True story. Get some perspective, guys.

The trailer was crap in my opinion, I was only happy to know Kratos was in but the trailer was the same Scorpion shitting on Sub-Zero they always show to us, should've been Shao Kahn vs Raiden and then Kratos appearing in the middle of the fight prepared to slay both of them.

Funny, and here I thought this game was supposed to make the Mortal Kombat fanboys happy, not the God of War ones.

RE: Kratos Confirmed For Mortal Kombat at Spike TV VGAs!

This is just so disappointing.

I just don't even know what to say. After all the talk about returning to roots and delivering a classic MK experience. I honestly thought this was a joke up until now. Guess I'll just have to accept that Mortal Kombat's sold out, they're beyond redemption for me.

They split the fan base, promoted console wars, and disregarded the tournament scene. Just kills my enthusiasm for this game.

Let me translate.

1. A character that doesn't belong in MK that could have been another REAL character for the entire fan base, instead of half.
2. Comes with any character....?
3. Waste of a stage.
4. Waste of a stage fatality.
5. Waste of a character that could have been part of the story.

ONLY POSITIVE.

NOT IN THE XBOX 360 VERSION.
