Mortal Kombat 9 (2011): List of New Characters – True or not?

By Updated on

Following on from our earlier report which told you about exciting plans to add God of War’s Kratos to the growing character roster to the upcoming Mortal Kombat game, we now have a lengthy list of new, but rumored characters who will be joining them.

According to this report from RealmofGaming, several audio files were discovered on the official Mortal Kombat website, and these files contained intro voice overs and theme music for a collection of unannounced Mortal Kombat characters.

The files have since been removed, but not before RealmofGaming had a chance to get the juicy information for us. The characters that were listed on the official website include Ermac, Goro, Kabal, Noob Saibot, Quan Chi, Shang Tsung, Sindel, Smoke and Stryker.

Interestingly, there was also a listing for a human version of Sektor, the robot who has already been confirmed in the game. Aside from the character leaks, there were also audio files for ‘Test your Might’ and ‘Brutalities’ – which should please those of you who enjoyed them in Mortal Kombat Trilogy.

Don’t forget, this hasn’t been confirmed by NetherRealm Studios yet, so perhaps we shouldn’t get our hopes up too much. On a personal note, I would definitely be happy to see Kabal make a return, and I’m pretty surprised that Goro and Quan Chi may be returning for the new game.

What are your thoughts on this? Are you happy with the potential new characters or have they still left out your favorite? We want your opinions on the mysterious ‘human’ Sektor as well. Exciting stuff! – stay tuned.

    I think some of the characters are gonna be in the game from that list is because the game is gonna be relived by previous mortal kombat games like mk1-3 and some characters from the mk4-mk Armageddon.So I think a little of it is true.

    I'm not suprised that Quan Chi might come back. He's obviously the best post-MK3 character. But I'm not excited about Goro, though. I would prefer Kintaro or Motaro (with four legs of course).

    I thought it was just MK1-MK3 I never expected quan chi to be in it or probably he could be a DLC Character, if he is then thats good because if he wasn’t then its gonna push out some favourites. xoxo gossip girl

    I hope Sheeva appears in Mortal Kombat 9

  • Ishan

    I want Rain in it for sure

  • Zack

    Arbiter for 360! Just saying. He works.

    The Elite-Elite, a suicidal warrior who would seek to win Mortal Kombat in the name of the Prophets. Has energy sword, plasma, needle, and beam weapons.Most covenant hand weapons double as melee clubs and fatalities could be Needler Explosion and Cleansing Beams (From a covenant mothership).

    I’m pretty pumped about the roster hoping they add more female characters. MK has been a male fighter haven for a long time and deserves diversity. Sheeva, Tanya, etc.
