Mortal Kombat 9 Bosses are Non-Playable Characters

Save and Quit write: "Hector Sanchez from NeatherRealm Studios has come out to say that the Mortal Kombat bosses will not be able to be unlocked as playable characters. Sanchez said they are just sticking to “the main heroes of the game” to be the playable characters..." (Mortal Kombat, PS3, Xbox 360)

I only disagreed because I'd love to see a Goro fatality.
lociefer  +   1398d ago
IF they release a dlc to unlock playing as them it would be a really bad move , but its a good thing for those idiots who like to play as overpowered bosses online ( seth anyone ? )

I'm personally okay with this. If Goro was a playable character, I could see him being overpowered.
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1398d ago
Im sure the bosses will be playable eventually
in the form of a new edition or a DLC. If not, I will be really surprised.

I was really hoping we could play with Goro!!!!!!!!!!
Rumor  +   1398d ago
i hate fighting non playable characters in fighting games. it's such a tease

i think its safe to say that we all would have wanted to own as$ with Tabuu in Super smash bros brawl....
Kahvipannu  +   1397d ago
He might still have fatality, when the player lose... (?)
oricon  +   1397d ago
Loool @ Lociefer seth overpowered? do you seriously play Street Fighter?
ATiElite  +   1398d ago
Who cares?
When are we gonna get Mortal Kombat vs. Street Fighter? That's what we all want.
fryday  +   1398d ago
you mean Mortal Kombat vs Killer Instinct

THAT's what we all want.
Brash_Attack  +   1398d ago
If they keep fighting all these other games, when will they have time to fight Dead or Alive? C'MON!
Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1398d ago
when will we have
Mortal kombat vs Street fighter vs Killer instinct vs Teken vs DOA vs KOF vs Marvel vs DC vs UFC vs WWE vs Nintendo?

Ill buy that game.

Tekken 6 is the best fighting game and we all know it :)
ZombieAssassin  +   1398d ago
For me it's a toss up of the Tekken series and Mortal Kombat series for best fighters. I haven't played Tekken 6 though just all the rest and have Tekken 2 and Tekken DR Online on my Ps3. I personally think Tekken Tag might be one of the most fun fighters of all time if not the most fun I can't wait till we get Tekken Tag 2 and the fact the new MK includes a tag mode that allows 4 players just makes it all the better.
Nate-Dog  +   1398d ago
Tekken 6 is rubbish compared to Tekken 2 or 3!
Focker420  +   1398d ago
They ruined Tekken 6 with the 'bound' capability...
dkgshiz  +   1397d ago
Yeah right. If you like boring combat then Tekken is the fighting series for you.
Kahvipannu  +   1397d ago
For me Tekken 6 was little let-down.. The "campaign" was addicting tought.
mcsm  +   1397d ago
i wonder how much they will charge later for these "non-playable characters"
ATiElite  +   1397d ago
$9.99 each.
Visari  +   1398d ago
Yet another reason why I won't buy this garbage.
TrevorPhillips  +   1398d ago
because you can't afford it.
sdtarm  +   1398d ago
warrior9988  +   1398d ago
well said bro troll deserved it
ChristianGamer  +   1397d ago
Dude, seriously, L O L
belal  +   1398d ago
dude STFU, mommy didn't have more money to give you ;)
unicron7  +   1398d ago
lol Oh man. This is the best MK to release since MK3. I've played the demo countless times, which is more than I can say for any other fighting game this generation. Soul Calibur sucks now. Tekken sucks now. Street Fighter, is actually great. This however, is superb. Going back to the meat and potatoes of what made MK great will work out for them immensely I do believe.
MASTER_RAIDEN  +   1398d ago
You must really have your panties in a bunch for some reason. A boss character is to be feared and mysterious. Putting them in as playable characters would break the flow of the games combo system too. These bosses don't deliver 10 hit combos..mks boss characters have always been slow moving extremely powerful characters.

Anyway, it doesn't sound like you're much of an Mk fan to begin w. Why are you pretending to give a shit about who is and isn't in the game.

Also, if this is only "yet another" reason you choose not to buy the game, please enlighten us: what other reasoning do you have? Hmmmmmmm??
the_best_player  +   1398d ago
sluggish controls, with low number move list also no side step and no good defence moves.
warrior9988  +   1398d ago
its a 2D fighting game how do you think side stepping is possible ?
ERMAC_  +   1398d ago
No good defense moves? Block? Teleport? Look for an opening?

Not every game needs a mash-able get out of jail free shoryken.

Also, # moves doesn't mean shit. There is something called "depth vs breadth". They could give you 500 moves, and only 15 of those are actually practical would yield the same result as a game with 30 moves and 15 of those are usable.

Same reason why 2D mk> 3D mk. More moves, less depth.

Powerbar adds "combo-breakers" to the game, which is great for mp.
waltyftm  +   1398d ago

moeqawama  +   1398d ago

Solidus187-SCMilk  +   1398d ago

akatsuky67  +   1398d ago

SpLinT  +   1398d ago

ZombieAssassin  +   1398d ago
Mortal Kombat vs The world!!!
krazykombatant  +   1398d ago
MY GOD MAN!, would you imagine the possibilities, Falcon knee, spikes down to a fatality :O!
Kahvipannu  +   1397d ago
Seeing Scorpion to rip Super mario in half, or Mario doing same to some other character would be epic win indeed. :D
josephayal  +   1398d ago
No way MEH!!!!!!!
Kos-Mos  +   1398d ago
Booooooooooooooo! Big minus. Still buying.
jon1234  +   1398d ago
i bet they making them non playable charcters only to make them playable through dlc
jay2  +   1398d ago
Until they decide to release them as paid for DLC 2 days after the game launches, of cause.
CrimsonEngage  +   1398d ago
@ Fryday, That would be nice and all but i would much rather see Mortal Kombat vs Primal Rage... :D
madara0sama  +   1398d ago
Even if they had Goro/bosses playable I most likely won't even touch him/them.
GFahim  +   1398d ago
Mortal Kombat vs Nintendo

TheCryptKeeper  +   1398d ago
you know what that means, right? DLC Goro for 5 bucks. lmao

after this, and the whole 10 dollar thing going on with this game im second guessing my preorder.
im-12-years-old  +   1398d ago
It's $10 dollars extra if you buy used...

HardCover  +   1397d ago
Cool. Just means I won't have to put up with you when I play this online.
Kamikaze135  +   1398d ago
Unplayable...till you buy the DLC
spunnups  +   1397d ago
We should be able to play as bosses in single player just to F up the opponent, but banned in multi. How hard is that? stop being pusses...
Kingdom Come  +   1397d ago
Goro's my favourite character, so as you can probably tell, this news has frustrated me... Greatly so.
PS360PCROCKS  +   1397d ago
really?? That sucks, I would have liked to be able to use the bosses to play against my friends and stuff. Oh well, I remember Sheeva and Goro, I could beat the game using one move from them, made it stupidly easy.
