The thing is, no matter who the character is in MKX that is exlusive, it will never be a better fit than Kratos did.

Blood, Brutality, button mashing and over the type violence are all things that could be used both to describe God of War and Mortal Kombat.

How could they possibly top Kratos.

Freddy and Jason? They already did one of those.
BiggerBoss  +   352d ago
Kratos definitely should be in there. I was pretty dissapointed when they confirmed he wasn't:(

Nariko (Heavenly Sword)
Galahad from The Order: 1886
Blood Bournes protagonist
Dante from DMC
Dante from Dante's Inferno
Cole or Delsin from Infamous
Lara Croft
Rayne(?) BloodRayne
Snake from Metal Gear Solid
Big Daddy from Bioshock

Yeah I agree, Kratos was the best fit ever for a guest character, I can't think of anyone else who would just fit...then again Freddy didn't really fit the mold for MK either, but they did well to make it seem like it...maybe they'll surprise us with something. I guess after the last Twisted Metal Game's storyline Sweet Tooth would be a good fit.

Hm.. Marcus Fenix is more of a gun guy, I wonder how his move sets would work, as for Playstation I could totally see Sweet Tooth being a character, I'd actually prefer him over the likes of Kratos.
The Meerkat  +   352d ago
Scourge (Gear 2 bad guy) would be a perfect fit for MK
Sayai jin  +   352d ago
"Frag Out" finishing move! Kratos or Sweet Tooth is a toss up for me.
vallencer  +   352d ago
They could do some cool stuff with Marcus Fenix. He could easily be more of a grapple guy with how big he is. Plus Stryker had guns as part of his move set so it isn't far fetched. However I don't think they'll add them in the game just because you're right, he is more of a gun guy. If anything I think they'd add characters from killer instinct in the game.
TwoMinTy  +   352d ago
I love the idea of Sweet Tooth for the PS character! I think it could also be (potentially) awesome if for the DLC they added a couple of DBZ characters imo, since the two franchises would probably have a largely overlapping fanbase.

and i'm not even gonna pretend i didn't get that idea from your screen name/avi lol
CernaML  +   352d ago
Do you even know what Mortal Kombat is all about? lol
TenSteps  +   352d ago
I just hope that whoever they end up being they're given the Scorpion Injustice treatment and at least have an alternate skin that would fit better with the MK world.
sinspirit  +   352d ago
What if they had new forms of robot/cyborg characters like they have done before but imbued them with the consoles themselves.

But, we all know Sackboy is the ultimate brawler. He will just use his Sackboy slap the whole time and that is all he needs. /s

If it's console based, I would like to see Radec from Killzone. If it's a random pick, PS4 needs Ash from Evil Dead/Army of Darkness.
Accountclosed  +   352d ago
It would be more likely that on Xbox the guest character is from killer instinct, but sweet tooth seems likely for PlayStation.
mafiahajeri  +   352d ago
Nathan drake... That would be so beyond amazing. Except my heart would be broken if I do a fatality on him...
robtion  +   352d ago
Ellie from TLOU. Pocket knife fatality!
sinspirit  +   352d ago
Not sure how he fits in to the style of the game though.

I think another fit would be Nariko from Heavenly Sword. Clearly, a lot like Kratos who was positively received in MK before.
nX  +   352d ago
I want Kratos with new moves and the Helios Fatality... he said Kratos won't come back though :( I could cry
TwoMinTy  +   352d ago
As a HUGE God of War fan, i was kinda disappointed with Kratos in the previous game. It didn't stop me from using him more than anybody else, but i feel like they made him way too slow and his move set could have been a lot better imo. I was hoping to see him return in X, new and improved
nX  +   352d ago
Haha same for me, I used him more than anybody else but I found that they could've made him so much better... I still hope we'll see him again, I could care less for Sweet Tooth or Nathan Drake tbh.
DarkBlood  +   352d ago
Even though im getting the xbox one im hoping the ps4 version gets this supposed arnold character as well lol even if it was just trolling
Tedakin  +   352d ago
Xbone - Fulgore. Would make too much sense.
SteamPowered  +   352d ago
Why would they put a Fighter from a current franchise on a new franchise? I would understand if it was a nostalgia character or whatnot, but KI season 2 is around the corner so I don't see why they need the same character on 2 current games.
christocolus  +   352d ago

Marcus would be ok but it would be so cool if a character from KI ended up in MK .any one of these would do - cinder, spinal or orchid .

There's an actual possibility this could happen cos just after E3 this year Ed boon and Ken lobb joked about doing a KI vs MK game together..would be awesome.
SteamPowered  +   352d ago
PS4 will get the Predator and Arny/Dutch, the Xbox will get.....Marcus Phoenix?

I hope both consoles get Predator.

I hope the exlcusives only relate to first-party characters for their respective consoles.
SteamPowered  +   352d ago
I would love to be Dutch. His "GET TO DA CHOPPA" finisher will be epic.
Barnaby-Jones  +   352d ago
I bet the X1 exclusive character will be from Killer Instinct. I wonder who they will pick?
MrSwankSinatra  +   352d ago
Cinder would be dope.
Mikefizzled  +   352d ago
Unlikely as Cinder has yet to return to Killer Instinct. I hope he is in season 2 but as of now I dont think Warner Bros will use a 20 year old character will no selling power to his name.
Tedakin  +   352d ago
Hey, how about Lara Croft on Xbone? Seriously. They killed her horribly over and over again in that last game, so I doubt they'd have an issue with her dying in MK a bunch of times.
Plasticgearsolid  +   352d ago
She would just make terrible moans whenever she got hit, plus I couldn't see her brawl at the pace of MCX
MrSwankSinatra  +   352d ago
Killer Instinct characters in MK sounds about right.
WeAreLegion  +   352d ago
I'd love to see:

PlayStation - Kratos, Joel, Sweet Tooth, or even Sackboy

Xbox - Master Chief, Marcus, or...Forza car?
SteamPowered  +   352d ago
I wonder if Pc is getting any exclusivity?
BiggerBoss  +   352d ago
Omg sackboy would be hilarious
Taz X14  +   352d ago
Well since they're including clickers and bloaters in Diablo 3 ultimate edition, I wouldn't be terribly surprised if one or both made it into MkX.
DarXyde  +   352d ago
I say get the guy from Bloodborne, assuming you don't make him.

For Xbox, I would probably go with Marcus Fenix or the guy from Ryse (Marius, I believe).
Plasticgearsolid  +   352d ago
The bloodborne guy would be amazing, but its probably not since I think MCX is farther into development
Twiggy  +   352d ago
Never thought of that.. man that actually sounds so freaking cool!!
Vladplaya  +   352d ago
And that's why I will not buy it.
Rivitur  +   352d ago
This can't end well... What about the competitive play and one person is only good with ps4 character but at evo they only use x1?

(Don't just say learn someone else say that person has played other tournaments and has gotten first place with an account exclusive character what then?)

I'm not sure they had competitive gaming in mind. Pretty sure they are focused on sales right now.
Artemidorus  +   352d ago
Funny, I was thinking this when I saw the first video that they would provide this.

Be good to get console type characters abit like Soul Calibur
GenericNameHere  +   352d ago
David or Joel as PS exclusive for Mortal Kombat X! If Joel, have Quan Chi kidnap Ellie, and make that Joel's reason to fight. If David, mmm huuuumans!
Revengeance  +   352d ago
If Soul Calibur 4 is anything to go by, later down the road they'll eventually appear on both consoles unless they come from the PS and Xbox brand.
PrinceOfAllSaiyans  +   352d ago
Sackboy, Sweet tooth, Bloodborne guy, Nariko, or Delsin Rowe for PS.

As for Xbox I don't really know any fighting characters on their end.

Nicominoru  +   352d ago
I think Sweet Tooth especially based off the storyline from the last Twisted Metal or Nariko from Heavenly Sword would both be good choices, I'd love to see NetherRealms take on her design and even though she is similar to Kratos they don't fight the same at all.

Lol...what if it was Delsin though? Part of me thinks that would be awesome, but the MK fan in me is like "Fuck No!" lol.
Tzuno  +   351d ago
X1 Marius ps4 Joel
Max-Zorin  +   351d ago
The Xbox version should get Scourge from Gears 2.
