Kratos Already in MK9, Yoshi and Sonic Next?

Paul writes, "After it was announced that Kratos will be going to make an appearance in the new Mortal Kombat I got to thinking. Wouldn't it be fun if we could have a not-so-serious version with all of your classic character favorites to choose from? I mean think about it, you're standing on top of Princess Peach Christine Toadstool's castle wall then suddenly out of nowhere Yoshi and Mario come smashing through the wall and you see that little elf Link coming to kick your ass as well, wouldn't that make you laugh?

Or say you're in the Donkey Kong Country swinging from trees, eating bananas, and tossing barrels and you're being chased by Mr. and Mrs. Pac-Man trying to rip you a new one. Just the thought of some of these ideas makes me start to chuckle. Picture this, Pikachu is standing there wobbling back and forth dizzy from getting whooped. In front of him Sonic with red glowing eyes as the words "Finish Him" come across the screen, who wouldn't want to see the outcome of that?"

Oh my god, this would be amazing! I'm already psyched Kratos is going to be in MK9, if other characters like Sonic and Yoshi landed into the game that would just be genius and hilarious.

I'm sorry man, I don't usually shit on people's opinions, but this is the very worst idea I could think of.

The whole point of this MK reboot was to bring it back to it's violent, gritty roots. Last thing I want to see is cartoony, kiddy characters in the mix.

I'm happy Kratos is in it, but I really don't care if he wasn't, I want a Mortal Kombat game, not God of War, I've already had those in the past 5 years. I haven't played a good Mortal Kombat since Mortal Kombat Trilogy and UMK3. Everything was downhill from there.

I'm thinking if this is something you want, you weren't a true Mortal Kombat fan growing up.

Oh and if this is the type of ideas people are getting all because Kratos was added, I'd rather not have Kratos at all.

Any true mortal kombat fan would know that the only GOOD mortal kombat games were the first three, no new mortal kombat is going to out do what those did, let alone give you the feel of "reliving those days", you have to expect people to want additional characters and such, its what they've learned coming into this generation

blitz06233237d ago

Wow they're making it like Super Smash Bros. If they actually make this work I might give it a try, but it's hard to imagine a Nintendo character in a gore game

Kevin ButIer3237d ago

Agree, Kratos shouldnt be there, but someone here got to admit that its an excellent marketing strategy, its like adding Star Wars chars to SC franchise...

NeutralGamer3237d ago (Edited 3237d ago )

I would like to see Yoshi and Sonic

(Some kind of Super Smash HD?)

But I dont think Nintendo would let their characters appear on a platform not produced by them...

(PS Since Yoshi and Sonic would ruin the style of the game, I would propose they would be in a super super super secret mode you could unlock if you were really hardore at MK)

This is not Super Smash Brothers. The reason Kratos is in it is because he fits the style.

Stop trying to shovel in characters that don't fit. Xbox's gun-slingers don't fit and Nintendo would never in a million years allow one of its characters in such a violent game.

Didn't we have an explosion of hack 'n slashers early last year? War, Dante, (maybe) Bayonetta.....why aren't people making these obvious connections that would actually work?

newhumanbreed3237d ago

The only thing from Xbox that I can see in Mortal Kombat is the Locust. Maybe a berserker or skorge. That's really all I can see fitting in if Midway wants to do this console exclusive characters.

SixZeroFour3237d ago

why wouldnt the gun wielding characters from 360 fit when you have stryker in the MK universe? the visual looks of gears characters may be a bit much, but as a character and their weapons (the lancer) i dont see why they wouldnt fit

Infernostew3237d ago (Edited 3237d ago )

Travis Touchdown is really the only character from a Wii (now Ps3/360) game that could be considered for an MK game.

Hitman0769, end your life.

Skizelli3237d ago

Do me a favor and don't come up with anymore ideas where MK is concerned. ;)

Spitfire_Riggz3237d ago

Yeah I want to see yoshi get his head ripped off and those little boots shoved up his ass

Please god no. Don't turn this game into a joke.

Zimmerman3237d ago (Edited 3237d ago )


Have you seen how fast his legs move? Neither have I. All I can make out is a circular blur.

Imagine that speed and power coming into contact with your behind so many times per second.

rezzah3237d ago

Go play brawl, both of you.

MajestieBeast3237d ago

Gtfo with sonic and yoshi keep that shit in super smash
