We have some exciting news for all those of you who are planning to pick up the new Mortal Kombat game next year, as we have an image of the character select screen which confirms the amount of slots available for the game.
At E3, the developers for the game showed off a bit more details about their latest addition to the series, but they still didn’t want to drop any hints as to who would be joining the initial lineup of the eight characters shown so far.
However, take a look at this screenshot that I have found below:
This was taken at E3 during an off-camera demo of the game and clearly confirms that there will be at least 26 characters available in the game. Pretty exciting for sure, but check out the bottom right-hand icon – DLC.
Writer Ed Boon hinted that there will be more characters available for the game via DLC, and this image confirms that. I’m guessing that when you hover over the DLC icon, a side pop-up menu will appear with the bonus characters – maybe they are planning to release one every few months or something along those lines.
I think it is fair to say that Mortal Kombat 2011, or MK9 will be one of the most anticipated games ever next year. Take a look at the screenshot for yourself and let us know your thoughts on this.
