Update:


Even more stuff was apparently found. Test Your Might and Brutalities might make a return.

There was also announcer voice files that indicate there is a possible return of the popular Test Your Might mode and maybe the first return of Brutalities since Mortal Kombat Trilogy introduced them almost 15 years ago.

Well of course. Would be pretty weird otherwise. I guess it's safe to assume that the Xbox might also get a guest character. Except if this is some kind of Sony deal.

That list looks great! I hope this is far better than the MK vs DC abomination.

I wonder what Xbox related character would even fit though?

Hrrrm... Not sure about Master Chief in hand-to-hand combat, and the Gears guys are all big lugs... maybe Joanna Dark?

Out of all the characters mentionned, she sounds the more ideal. But actually, fuck that, just put in Banjo for the lulz.

Shang Tsung
Ermac
Sonya
Sub Zero
Johnny Cage
Scorpion
Jax
Cyrax

Mileena
Nightwolf
Raiden
Reptile
Sektor
Shao Kahn
Smoke
Kratos

Liu Kang hasn't been announced but he'll obviously be in the game.

I'm curious what the Kratos stage will look like. Hopefully it's set within the original games Hydra battle. Rain, waves, and the Hydra ripping people up in the background. Could make for a great stage fatality.

If the Kratos rumors prove true, which all signs so far point to the fact that it is the case, I will grab the PS3 version of this game instead of the 360 copy I was planning to snag.

Awesome, thanks! That's a massive roster! Heard stuff about Human Sektor (?) as a playable character as well.

My only wish: I hope Shang Tsung is old i.e. MK1 style

Perhaps a Killer instinct character could be on the cards. It would seem to be the most suitable franchise owned by Microsoft.
That would be really cool. I totally forget that they own that. Fulgore would be the obvious choice I guess.

TRMK mentioned that Sektor sounds human in the sound files.

Conker would probably be a better fit (in hopes for Great Mighty Poo stage fatality).

Man, Netherealm studios..... Please use the Blazblue-AstralFinish method of handling fatalities! The whole Finish Him sequence is kinda pointless from a gameplay perspective where you just input the command with no challenge. When you actually land an Astral Finish in BlazBlue, there's SO much satisfaction to it. That honestly is the only thing that's really bugging me about this game!

But Kratos in MK is now overkill after how many cameo's he's appeared in. Should've used some other Sony character from Heavenly sword, Everquest, Demons Souls or something.

Preferrably Nathan Drake. Ohhh how I'd love to unleash on that guy.

They've got a model of old Tsung for his throne room stage already and he'll need to be old for the MK1 part of the story. He'll pobably have an old and young costume.

:lol These are probably the worst suggestions for a Mortal Kombat game ever. Heavenly Sword is a dead franchise, Everquest... fucking really? Nathan fucking Drake in a fighting game with fatalities? :lol

Demon's Souls is the only one I don't have a problem with, but there's hardly ONE character you can make the image of the franchise.

So yeah.. Kratos is a perfect fit.

Not that I can see him ripping other people's heads off but yeah, someone from KI would be a better fit:

So, Soul Calibur has officially fallen to Mortal Kombat-tier, now?

I do hope this turns out well, though. We could always use more fightng game fans.

Well, he's as thematically appropriate as he was in Soul Calibur Broken Destiny, so I don't see why not. At least this time he can do beheadings.

But yeah, I feel ya.
Kratos fatality, chuckles like "nice try" then rips them in half.

A gears character would be the only one that would remotely fit if 360 has a character. Those guys are huge, but not bigger than goro.

They should do a Fable guy for the Xbox side. He already has ranged magic type stuff and they also do some fatality type stuff with the sword. Probably wouldn't work due to user customization though. Maybe just make it an avatar game. Those sell well.
