Evo 2014: Mortal Kombat X Guest Character Confirmed (Again)

The Dark Knight in MK vs DCA Polygon Evo interview with NetherRealm Studios' Ed Boon is again drawing attention toward the likelihood of guest character(s) in 2015's Mortal Kombat X.

The profitable return of crossover fighters hasn't been much of a secret. As well as various references on Twitter -- Boon made guest character considerations known to various outlets during last month's E3 launch [Related Article: E3 2014: Gamespot Full Match Videos & Demo Stream].

Answering questions about a possible return crossover between NetherRealm's two established fighting franchises - Boon leaned toward the negative, "I'd be hard-pressed to have a DC character as a downloadable character in Mortal Kombat X."

This, of course, goes against the grain of Scorpion making the leap to Injustice: Gods Among Us, but there's an explanation for that rooted in the differences between the two franchises. "The main reason is, I have no desire to cut Batman's head off. I have no desire to kill Superman."


No Rematch: Batman won't be evening the score with Scorpion in 2015.

2008's Mortal Kombat versus DC Universe infamously bumped up against the non-lethal traditions of DC superheroes. The solution: introducing "Heroic Brutality" as a survivable alternative to Fatality finishers, The compromise remains a contentious subject for the more bloodthirsty Mortal Kombat purists.

No such censorship was afforded to Kratos or Freddy Krueger -- 2011 guest characters who both faced the full force of Mortal Kombat's deadly violence. This compliance won't score either character a return visit, though. Boon scratched off the PS3-exclusive God of War on Twitter, where he's also discussed looking for something new [Related Article: Who's Next? Ed Boon's Mortal Kombat X Character Deadpool!].

Popular speculation ranges everywhere from near-misses like Sweet Tooth and Spawn -- to horror movie icons like Jason Voorhees and The Predator! While documenting references picked up by fans, Mortal Kombat Online threw an upcoming 2015 Warner film reboot that also poses interesting possibilities.

What's clear is that guest characters are here to stay. Ed Boon has frequently cited Freddy Krueger and Scorpion as the highest selling/most downloaded DLC of their respective games.

Guests are great. Really hoping Sony manages to leverage a sweet tooth appearance for this game.

There are bigger sacrifices one might be asked to make than going a little mad.

Hopefully only as DLC because not to waste development budget and time on the guest character.

Meh. Like the previous poster said, keep it DLC only instead of pissing away a main roster space.

This doesn't make any sense.

Even if the character wasn't DLC, time and effort still went into making that character. Characters don't just come from nowhere.

I would very much like to see the creature from Jeepers Creepers to be the guest character. You know...the one that eats organs to become human

My only hope is that whatever guests are being lined up are from franchises that MK hasn't crossed over with yet. The shared universe that surrounds Mortal Kombat is already gigantic and anything that makes it bigger and crazier is, in my book, not only welcome, but desirable.

Leatherface could be cool with some horrific chainsaw Fatalities! !!

I just want whoever it is to be DLC. No Playstation exclusive.

I'm buying the Season pass either way.

Generally I am against guest characters, but if comes to this, I hope this guest wouldn't be third-rate shitty serial killer from another mediocre movie franchise, like Voorhees or whathisname...

Mine always is. ;)

Anyways, Orchid from Killer Instinct would be my choice, though she would most likely just be Xbone exclusive.

Dante from DmC would be a nice choice too though, and he could easily fit into the whole Style Variations gameplay with his many different weapons and playstyles.

DLC is the only option I'm not irritated by.

I really wouldn't mind Streetfighters Vega tho, but they probably give us that overused Ryu instead, there isn't a more bland character ever created.

Long as they're DLC and I'll have the option not to buy them, I'm ok.

The original Dante is too anime to fit into MK.

Fuck it, just unveil Jason Voorhees and get it over with. That's what all the mouthbreathers have been clamoring for for three years, and they're gonna get it.

It's not even a fucking mystery.

So let's use the Dante everybody hates. Yup that makes perfect sense.
