Mortal Kombat 9: Predator DLC not impossible

By Posted 3 Aug 2011, 19:59

Now that we have had the official confirmation of Freddy Krueger as DLC for Mortal Kombat, it now opens up the possibility of even more ‘non-Mortal Kombat’ characters entering the mix at some point. How would you feel if the immensely popular Predator character featured in the Mortal Kombat universe?

You may be thinking, hang on a minute – Predator in Mortal Kombat? That’s what we thought too, but it definitely isn’t impossible after they included Freddy Krueger, and even more so after we discovered a very interesting Tweet from co-creator Ed Boon.

When asked if it was possible for the Alien from the Aliens movies to be included into Mortal Kombat, just read what Boon had to say in response, and it definitely seems believable coming from the man himself:

”@sidshuman @noobde Would the Alien/xenomorph be too much of a stretch for MK? Noobde: I think Predator would be a closer match with MK.”

Obviously, that isn’t a direct confirmation that the Predator is coming to Mortal Kombat, but it doesn’t seem so farfetched anymore after that statement so it is pretty exciting for fans of the Predator who enjoyed playing as him in the recent Alien Vs Predator game. There may be some problems regarding licensing to get Predator in Mortal Kombat, as it seems as if SEGA owns the rights at the moment, so NetherRealm Studios may have to participate in some lengthy negotiations for it to happen.

We hope it does, as it would frankly be pretty amazing if he did turn up in the game as guest DLC. Freddy Krueger is pretty special as it is, but Predator would just top it for us, come on – who doesn’t like the Predator? We are getting excited just thinking about some of his fatalities in game, and he has all sorts of weapons and projectiles that would fit perfectly in a Mortal Kombat game.

What are your thoughts on this – would you like to see Predator in Mortal Kombat or would you prefer to see a character from the MK universe added next?

    if this happens…. they have just sold another copy….

  • Hernandez J500

    i would pay 100$ just to have him

  • Keithroth

    WOULD BE GREAT IF THEY DO THIS THEY SHOULD ATLEAST BRING BACK mOTARO AND THE REST OF THE CHARACTERS IN THE GAME LETS NOR RUIN IT WITHOUT THE OTHER MK CHARACTERS LIKE SHINNOK OR NATARA AND EVEN THE OTHER SUB BOSSES FOR THE FUN OF IT

  • Keithroth

    Like to see my dog Kintaro playable i mean come on it they do the ALIEn they might as well doo the Alien QUeen and thro Goro Kintaro and Mavado Mataro the four leg version not the stupid two leg one in Armageddon either.

  • Hantu

    Would rather Frost, but meh… I’d buy Predator.

    I think its totally stupid by developers to add chars that arent even related to MK,they are just milking MK.Tho I like MK alot I think they should stick with series characters,wouldnt suprise me if they added rambo and soon enuf you have like 40 DLC chars it costs like 500 for em.

    Misleading article, not impossible except for the fact that Predator is 20th Century Fox property.

    • bustinYOnuttz

      Sry. Sega does. Not 21st century.

  • NicholasAaronice

    i think if freddy get a lot people to buy him to play as  u  should do think about puting more dlc pack’s out       Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Michael Myers, Ghostface, Pinhead. and dc  character download. it  would be awsome to  put  freddy vs batman. to put  to different i think  be playing the hell out of it  +  why don’t u guy  put all dlc add on a disc and sell it  u make alot off that.i  NetherRealm Studios  i think he be  Predator  agreat i deal from mk  he is  awsome character he know how to  that get the job done.   NetherRealm Studios   need  more fighter  for mk roster like   making  fight that r not from mortalkombat   it make it a hell of a goodtime.

  • NicholasAaronice

    NetherRealm Studios   need  more fighter  for mk roster like Jason Voorhees, Leatherface, Michael Myers, Ghostface, Pinhead, halo , duke numi ,  chris  from residentevil ,Jill Valentine residentevil, Albert Wesker.

    Andrew from Montgomery, AL thinks the Predator would fit right into MK and would definitely purchase him.

  • A B Orijinal 45

    I was saying to my brother as a joke that we should start a rumor and get predator into the game if enough people were on board. Looks like we don’t have to anymore. This would be awesome!

    Yeah I would have to say buy Mortal Kombat vs Dc or Marvel vs Capcom if you like mixing characters from different series. That’s not mortal Kombat, I’m sick to read all of the cheesy played out horror flick monsters people are suggesting instead of actual MK characters of which there are many, many more. Not to say Freddy Krueger isn’t fun to play, but he doesn’t fit and his ending is stupid. Predator would probably be fun too, but still, why can’t the developers stay loyal to their roots and stop selling out?

    Why not bring in Mavado, Nitara, Cyber Smoke (mk3 costume and new look), Shinnok of course, considering his few cameos in the game, frost, all of the MINI bosses like Motaro etc! And Blaze too! Bo rai chu! So many to pick from, and a new level, mk3 costume pack, and -alities pack would be so sweet!

    Screw all this noise about these other jokers.

      Looks like we are not getting anyone else full stop guys.. :( Latest news from Ed Boon is that no DLC is planned, 4 characters was their target.
