Ed Boon has given strong hints over an Xbox 360 exclusive character for Mortal Kombat.
Kratos was a great pick for the PS3 version, I still have a hard time thinking what the Xbox 360 character could be. Maybe it will just be some exclusive characters/skins or levels.
It's Alan Wake of course, he can brutally blind people with his flashlight! In all seriousness, the only one I can think of is Marcus Fenix really, he could have an awesome fatality with the chainsaw.
I highly doubt they have an exclusive character for x360. Even the box art showed the Ps3 copy mentioning kratos but nothing for xbox. It is possible down the line as a DLC though if they really want to do it.
I saw the Sai and thought Raphael, lol.
LOL, when I said this in a previous article, I got mass disagrees. Boon hinted this about a month ago. Watch the MK episode of Gamespot's "On the Spot" Anyways, this is good news, sad that bitter fanboys on the Internet's won't like this.
when namco made soul calibur 2 for ps2, xbox and gamecube. The ps2 ver had Heihachi (sp??), the cube had link and the xbox had spawn. Link is understandable for the cube as that is a nintendo only character. Heihachi for the PS2 seemed only right as it is a namco game and tekken popularity was built from the ps brand. Spawn...WTH??? Oh well, I guess it was better than a spartan (like in DOA). As for mortal kombat, I can only think of......Spawn. He worked as an exclusive character for the original xbox in a fighting game. He could work again for the 360. Different game but the character fits better this way.
I would think Marcus but wouldn't a generic Locust or even Carmine be a better fit? Locust can have a chainsaw rifle also Carmine always dies Plus they're both Unreal Engine games. I dunno, PS3 version it is for me. Haven't decided on TEw/stick or regular version though.
sorry people but this is the man for the job
Brutus from Brute Force would be a good character IMO.
It will be Jago from Killer Instinct! Edit: Damit Redpawn... you stole my answer! Lol...
@Active reload the sais in the pic are mileena's weapons, but lol xD
Maybe the dude from BulletStorm
No matter what it is, it cannot be better than Kratos. This is an impossible feat.
Doesn't Stryker have a gun? I don't see why Dom or Marcus couldn't be in if their guns are similar to his. They could also use a Killer Instinct character or Arbiter with the energy sword. Xbox has more characters to use than Spawn if you look into it.
@ef-u-2 Jack of Blades(fable) would be Awesome! Garth would be cool too.
THAT WAS MY JOKE!!! LOL! I said that a long time ago, when they announced Kratos. I said hat I see Alan Wake blinding Goro with his flashlight, and then runing like a little bitch.. LMAO!!
A killer instinct character would be awesome.
That would be awesome. Do it. Fulgore approves.
i'm pretty sure its gonna be master chief with the sword and hammer or marcus fenix with the chainsaw !!!
Glacius Ultra!!! Ultra!!! Ultra!!!
Since there was never a Killer Instinct on an Xbox system, in my opinion, Killer Instinct is more associated with Rare during the Nintendo era. However, if they threw in a KI character, that would be cool.
You know what I was thinking? listen out The most obvious choice would be from the gears of war universe, for the fact that it's the only exclusive game with enough blood and gore to fit in the MK universe, but choosing one of the cogs would not make sense because they are slow as hell, and by the looks of it, the new MK game is fast as hell (compared to past MK at least), so I was thinking, why not pick the locust that is a boss battle in Gears of War 2? I don't know the name but I believe he was the right hand man of the queen? where you and dom are in a building fighting him? he moves insanely fast and has like a javelin thing (and guns too) EDIT: His name is Skorge http://www.youtube.com/watc...
Looks like he'd made a good addition to MK, but I have to say, that boss fight you linked to was lame.
From Too Human Spawn would be welcomed. or Ninja Blade / Ninja Gaiden
mantisimo, i lol'd
Meh if 360 gets anything exclusive i reckon it will be like a level or something.. To be honest they have no characters that would fit in, yes a gears guy or locust could have cool fatalities but appearance wise they just wouldn't fit.. Kratos however just fits if god of war 3 didn't exist he could easily have been an MK character by his looks, not the same with any 360 characters, a level could still be cool though.
meh... maybe a character from Halo series? Gear of Wars? or Killer Instinct or blue dragon or Fable ... my bet it's from Killer Instinct and the character looks like B.Orchid.
Have not MK vs DC but I hope this guy makes an appearance in the new MK
I'm going to go with Raphael from TMNT.
What a joke news. He didn't even mention anything about characters. POS news on the main page.
if this game had a helghast character, i would probably buy it
i rememeber reading some where that it was some bonus level or something like that
it will be your xbox live avatar!
LOL.. that would actually be pretty cool.
At least they would finally have a worth while purpose. They are not quite as bad as the Wii avatars, but I still don't like them that much. I would love to see the fatalities that you could do on other avatars. I would buy the game just for that reason alone, even if I wasn't already getting it.
with the ammount of likes that you have got i think they should have your avatar as a playable character and online would be funny and cool at the same time and just image the fatalities
best idea so far
... @Clizzz awesome Idea.
I don't get it, why is an xbox 360 character so important for this game? And if there really is one, why not an Elite? More like the Arbiter from Halo Wars. Dude was vicious and huge?
They know that by releasing Kratos for the pS3 that version of the game will sell more. They want money from both console ownners not just one.
I mentioned it above but namco did something like this with soul calibur 2. I ended up getting the cube version because link just felt like he fit the scope of that game. Spawn and heihachi just didnt seem right. Spawn could work for this game though. If given the choice between the two, I would go with kratos and hope that whatever character they reveal for the 360 would be available for dlc to the ps3 ver. So long as it isnt an exclusive character (ex: spawn).
Yeah, its really starting to annoy the shit out of me. Listen guys there are like 30 fucking characters in street fighter and like 40 in tekken. Do any of you even know how to play with half the characters in either of those games? My god most of you have probably never even picked cody or zefina in your lives! So WHY is getting some gimmicky broken extra character important. And to top it all off his combos actually look reallly bad. My advice to you LOSERS who are dying to see stiff meathead nobody: marcus phoenix in the game JUST so you can have bragging rights: get real. It should never and probably WILL never happen. Get over it.
Same with kratos. It's pointless.
I would love to see Marcus. All they have to do is speed him up a bit. He doesn't have to move slow all the time.
ninja gaiden maybe
that would me great for the xbox fans
"Ninja Gaiden" has to be it, i could see that character fits perfectly in game
Ryu vs Kratos. Definitely a dream match
Na, unfortunately it won't be Ryu from Ninja Gaiden, because he's also part of a competing franchise from Tecmo (Dead or Alive). It also won't be Master Chief, because Microsoft wants to keep the Halo universe Canon in video games (some unrelated Spartan might be possible, just like they did with Dead or Alive). Something from the Gears universe is most likely: 1) the Cogs just fit perfectly into Mortal Kombat gore-wise. Lancer fatalities are a no brainer. 2) MK is also running on the unreal engine so importing the character is pretty much effortless. 3) We already saw Marcus making an appearance in Lost Planet 2, so we know that Epic doesn't have any problem with whoring him out :)
Why would it be ninja gaiden.. when the games on PS3.. pretty sure if they were going to use a character from 360 franchises it would be an exclusive one to counter Kratos.. However it's probably an already known character from the MK universe they'll get, if its even a character.. if they even get anything
idk about this.....Didn't they specifically say there wasn't going to be?
Lol. I think that we can all agree there is noone that they can choose that would be better than Kratos. Alan Wake....lmao
Unless it's an exclusive Mortal Kombat character. There are plenty who could be better if that's the case.
Ohh yeah for sure, that I agree with. I was thinking of MS Characters.
Don't say that.. if they announce Kenshi and then make him excluive to 360 i'll actually cancel my pre-order :( lol I reckon you could be right though, maybe an old MK character rather than a 360 exclusive's character, none of them really have the 'look'
I have a feeling it's gonna be an exclusive Mortal Kombat character like Bo Rai Cho, or something. Not so much a character from another game.
considering the style of which Mortal Kombat is, i don't think there is video game character greater than Kratos. but if there was going to be an Xbox exclusive character, it's gotta be COLE TRAIN! but wasn't this game hacked with all characters, endings revealed a few weeks ago? if something was hidden - it wouldn't be now.
Said character would have to be from a MS franchise (or Warner Bros, who owns Mortal Kombat), for licensing reasons. The character would likely have to be from Halo, Fable, or Gears (or Banjo Kazooie heh). It won't be Ryu, or any other 3rd party character. Honestly, if Banjo was in MK, I would buy it DAY 1. The laughs I would get from destroying my opponents as Banjo would be unrivaled.
Carmine brothers from gears would be perfect.
You'd have to make them really underpowered so they die often, otherwise it just wouldn't be right.
Who is it? Ryu from Ninja Gaiden?
that would be cool but i dont think so because ninja gaiden isnt a exclusive any more not that it has to be but i am sure if there was going to be any character i am sure it would be a exclusive one like Kratos for the PS3
Cliffy B. You heard it here first.
Haha, I love it.
Nobody on the xbox fits with the mk formula surely not as much as kratos fits...
That's why im assuming it's Ryu from Ninja Gaiden. Who else could it be, who in the Xbox universe matches the brutalness of Kratos and fits with the Mortal Kombat formula?
Ryu can be found on the ps3 too so that really wouldnt be exclusive.
In my opinion Master Chief from Halo and Marcus from Gears do not fit the Mortal Kombat formula. Mortal Kombat is not about shooting people with guns its about fighting and brutally destroying your opponent. Who is someone in the xbox universe who does that, all I can think of is Ryu from Ninja Gaiden, unless they really take one of them from Gears or Halo which I don't think they should cuz theyre shooting games, which Mortal Kombat is not about. Unless they take the main character from that ninja game the 360 exclusive, Ninja Blade, I think it was
How in the world does Kratos fit this game any more than any other random character that they could have thrown in the game? A Gears character would fit fine. Wouldn't be any more rediculous than some of the MK characters already available that were introduced after MK2.
