If you are a fan of the annual Comic Con event and happen to own a copy of Mortal Kombat on either the PS3 or Xbox 360, you are in for a treat. New content for the game as well as the latest episode of Mortal Kombat Legacy are just some of the exclusives to be had at Comic Con 2011.
Comic Con is one of our favorite times of the year, especially this year as we are going to be treated to new movie trailers for The Avengers and The Amazing Spiderman. However, as childhood Mortal Kombat fans, we were delighted to hear that Ed Boon and the rest of NetherRealm Studios will be travelling down to San Diego to reveal some brand new information on the game.
The key reveal of the day will be the unveiling of Mortal Kombat’s 4th DLC character, which has been shrouded in mystery up until this point. Speculation has hinted that it may be Tanya, although if you have been keeping an eye on Ed Boon’s Twitter account, you’ll know that it could just be about anyone as he’s staying firm on this particular reveal.
Not only will Ed Boon reveal who the character is, lucky attendees at the Mortal Kombat Comic Con event will also get the chance to have the first play of the mystery fighter before he/she releases on the PlayStation Store and Xbox Live Marketplace in the coming weeks. We’ve only just had a chance to get to grips with Rain though, so we hope it’s still a few weeks until the next DLC character is out, making Mortal Kombat’s Comic Con event even more special.
To top it off further, the GameStop store near the Comic Con convention center will be holding a Mortal Kombat tournament as well. If you think you are one of the top MK players in the world and happen to be near the Comic Con event location at 7PM local time, it’s well worth putting your skills to the test against other players. Who knows, you may even be able to square off against some of the developers of the game, that would be pretty awesome wouldn’t it?
What are you more excited about, the reveal of the fourth DLC character for the game, or the release of the final episode of Mortal Kombat Legacy which will tell the story of Cyrax and Sektor? We loved the Scorpion and Sub Zero episodes so we’re hoping for more of the same, as the first few episodes in the series were a bit weak.
Will you be participating in the Mortal Kombat tournament? Any last minute predictions for who this character is?
