We have some important news for Mortal Kombat fans now, but it’s perhaps not the news you were hoping to hear especially if you have been holding on for updates regarding some new DLC characters for the game – it looks like there isn’t going to any.
Yeah, we’re as disappointed as you are about this, but when Ed Boon says something on his Twitter account, you tend to listen. A recent update by the big man has suggested that there won’t be any new characters for the game, and that NetherRealm Studios only planned to bring four additional characters to the game, those being Scarlet, Kenshi, Rain and Elm Street favorite Freddy Krueger of course.
Check out a message from Ed Boon when replying to a user who asked if more DLC was on the way or not:
”Again, I hate to use the word never. But we are currently not working on additional DLC for MK.”
This is a bit of a bombshell especially after the awesome announcement of a brand new Mortal Kombat game and a movie with the same director who filmed the MK Legacy web series. Hopefully some special DLC will still release for the game which isn’t characters, perhaps maybe some new fatalities or stages, minor DLC which would still make fans happy we feel.
Freddy Krueger was a surprise, but great addition to the game and it seemed to open the floodgates for even more movie-based characters to join the game. Ed Boon even talked about Marcus Fenix at one point, but again – no real substance behind the info.
If you have a copy of Mortal Kombat on either the Xbox 360 or PS3, have you started to play the game less and less now? Are you disappointed that there may not be any more new DLC characters coming to the game or not?
