Mortal Kombat 9: What DLC does the game need, Rain would be nice

By Updated on

Recently, we provided you with an exciting new Mortal Kombat 9 video which showed off the fatalities for upcoming DLC character Skarlet. Now though, we’d like to ask current players for their opinions on the game, with regards to future DLC releases for the game.

As we told you earlier this week, we don’t have a release date for Skarlet’s arrival yet, but considering that NetherRealm studios has decided to put out a trailer for just her and not other DLC character Kenshi, we would presume that they may be two separate releases, which would be interesting.

While the addition of two extra characters would be most welcome by fans, it’s not the DLC that everyone wants – Rain. For some reason, the little fellow is the only character from MK1,2,3 and MKT not to be included in the game, excluding the likes of Motaro who we see in story mode anyway.

You may remember the creators of the game stating that their aim was to include content from all the old MK 1 2 3 and UMK3 games, so on this basis you would have to presume that Rain is definitely coming as a DLC character at some point. Other DLC characters that may come at a future date could be Cyber Smoke and Chameleon, but what else can they add?

They have just released the classic skins pack that we told you was coming out soon, and you can check out the release trailer for it below. Will the game fall short of DLC to release after they bring out Rain, or do you have ideas which you think may keep the game interesting and fresh for fans. Give us your opinions on this one.

    first of all it’s Kenshi, not Kenshin

    at E3 Ed Boon confirmed that for now they have 4 DLC characters planned, Skarlet, Kenshi and two more, most likely the rumored Shinock and Fujin, and they will all be released individually during the summer

      I personaly want Shinnok because we need an Evil Mastermind (Quan Chi doesn’t count Shinnok makes up his plans most of the time ) we can play as. Its already out of the question that we cant play as Shao Khan

    I believe that future DLC should have the following characters: Rain, Fujin, Bo Rai Cho, Frost, Darrius, Khameleon, and Kenshi. Also more classic costumes and fatalities would be awesome.

    Though story mode was fantastic, bringing back Konquest mode would be cool too. Especially if this is the “last” MK they make, as they had claimed before the game released. 

    Other mini games like the ones they had in Mortal Kombat Deception and Armageddon would be cool too. Mini games like puzzle kombat, chess kombat, motor kombat etc. 

    As for new ideas, I think that their development team will release more DLC giving every MK fan something new to experience. Perhaps a “Fatality Bundle” would be cool. A download which gives 1 new fatality per character, or they could sort that out however they’d like. New arenas with new stage fatalities would be nice. New X-Ray’s would be good, especially since L1 and R1 (PS3) and the top bumpers on the 360 are unused in the games. The second X-Ray could be achieved be filling the meter twice or something like that, thus turning the move into an instant finisher or something along those lines. Anyways those are just my ideas. Take em as you’d like lol.

      Very nice ideas there Edwin.. I can definitely see a ‘fatality bundle’ on the way.. 1 new fatality for each character would be great, although it could be quite pricey!!

        yes! i would love if they came out with a fatality pack! i would pay any price! lol

    Also boon stated that since everyone like kratos that it may open up doors for more interesting things in the future

    • http://pulse.yahoo.com/_KWIECSTJSYRPTC5YLCCXSHRUOA Collin

      well guess what, i saw this leaked footage of some dlc characters, the one was just a plain male render but when he was chosen the announcer (shao khan) says fuujin when he was selected, guaranteeing that he will be a dlc character so thats pretty awesome

      • Navy_132

        Fujin is also in Kratos ending on PS3

    I for one would like to see all new characters like they did with Scarlet.  Lets get the Brown ninja Tremor or even Nimbus Terrafaux. Nimbus is a kickboxer rumored to be hidden in the original Mortal Kombat.  Id gladly pay for all new characters like this.  But I do want RAIN!!!!

    I’ve got one I bet alot of haven’t hear of. A fighter that was never really named. She was based off a real life kick boxer named Kathy Long. I would love to see her as a DLC. And in case anyone wants to have a look at what the female fighter looked like just type in ( kathy long mortal kombat ) in a search engine like google. And I definitely would love to see rain.

    it needs to have a custom character creation system like in mk Armageddon that made online vs the best I was disappointed when that wasn’t on the game when I bought it

  • ken pearson

    I Would Like More Stage Fatalities. Definately a Cliff Fatality or a fall onto concrete would be funny, where you are shown all the bones breaking on impact through an X-ray view. Perhaps this could be done on the rooftop stage where you could be thrown off a skyscraper.
    I also like in deception where you could kill an opponent mid battle with the environment.
    For characters, I would like to see: Unmasked Sub-Zero, Jarek, Reiko, Mavado.

    As long as people keep playing they will keep dishing out new DLC. Who knows eventually they may release every character they have. that would be pretty cool.
