Five Exclusive Characters Ideal For Mortal Kombat On Xbox 360 (Gameplaybook)

Kratos is joining the MK party on PlayStation 3, but Xbox 360 owners have yet to get an exclusive character of their own. Gameplaybook has a few suggestions. (Crackdown 2, Dishwasher: Dead Samurai 2, Gears of War 3, God of War 3, Halo: Reach, Mortal Kombat, Perfect Dark XBLA, Xbox 360)

i don't know but The 360 doesn't have any EXCLUSIVE characters to fit into Mortal Kombat. You can't use a character from a shooter game because they have no hand combat skills.

I just don't see Master chief or Marcus doing Kung-Fu.
So I guess they will have to insert a Steroid-up Alan Wake into the 360 MK.

I have to agree, I can't think of one.

Kratos fits because of his genre. We could also add other characters from other beat-em up games

i agree about shoot characters they wouldnt make much sense for a martial arts game. ms owns killer instincts i believe so mabye one of there characters could show up.

Master Chief, Marcus Fenix, Joanna Dark? How would a gun-slinger fit into a fighter?

"The Dishwasher: Dead Samurai" is the only one I can really see happening, so long as he leaves his guns at home.

You havnt imagined an epic energy sword battle? on the other hand we will always have dante inferno, Google him, he would be sweet, its a shame this article didnt mention him.

Don't see Blinx...Blinx is like the coolest Half man half cat ever...just saying

Then were is Jiao Feng? certainly he wouldn't get his ass torn apart right?

Blinx would get torn apart. That's why I left him and Voodoo Vince out.

not marcus fenix...should be RAAM
DarkFalcon  +   1813d ago
Again with RAAM? lol
SixZeroFour  +   1813d ago
well raam is much more suited for the mk series than marcus fenix is, and since he put marcus fenix i was just telling him that it should have been raam

gears berserker or scorge,but then who in Mk is strong enough to hurt a berserker let alone kill it? If you played gears you know what I'm talking about

meh, people are forcing it.. none of the 360 characters scream fighting game characters... maybe the agent from crackdown, ninja gaiden character definitely

but all these other xbox characters are stupid for MK.. thats like sony adding nathan hale, malikov, nathan drake, sully.. might as well throw in one of the Pain characters too..

its just a case of me too status for ms... now if it were something like smash bros. then yeah add whoever and everyone

ryu hyabusa? thats not a bad idea...
bacrec1  +   1812d ago
General Raam
JonahFalcon  +   1812d ago
It can only be Marcus Fenix. His fatality: chainsaw lancer.
Johnny Jiron  +   1811d ago
Why not the 'Hero' from Fable? Has his/her spell abilities (fire,ice,vortex,chaos,etcetc) to dip into. And since every character has 2 fatalities, maybe get creative with the morality system. Use a wickedly evil twisted fatality or ...mercy?

Tho I guess there is the Aesthetic problem. With fables fantasy stylized art to MKs more gritty looks.

But fighting wise I guess Fable Hero is MS' only hand to hand choice...visually they have plenty.
