Mortal Kombat 2011: Character Select Screen Revealed

We have some exciting news for all those of you who are planning to pick up the new Mortal Kombat game next year, as we have an image of the character select screen which confirms the amount of slots available for the game.

At E3, the developers for the game showed off a bit more details about their latest addition to the series, but they still didn’t want to drop any hints as to who would be joining the initial lineup of the eight characters shown so far.

However, take a look at this screenshot that I have found below:

This was taken at E3 during an off-camera demo of the game and clearly confirms that there will be at least 26 characters available in the game. Pretty exciting for sure, but check out the bottom right-hand icon – DLC.

Writer Ed Boon hinted that there will be more characters available for the game via DLC, and this image confirms that. I’m guessing that when you hover over the DLC icon, a side pop-up menu will appear with the bonus characters – maybe they are planning to release one every few months or something along those lines.

I think it is fair to say that Mortal Kombat 2011, or MK9 will be one of the most anticipated games ever next year. Take a look at the screenshot for yourself and let us know your thoughts on this.

Are 26 characters enough for you? We asked you for your favorite picks in our previous thread here.

Kratos will be a real good addition to the game I'm glad he is on the PS3 version but it sucks he isn't in the story mode but he still would be a good character on MLK 2011

im fine with the game…… but after the last two mortal kombats… i have to say that blind kenshi is by far my favorite character….. i hope that somehow he at least makes the cut as a dlc, but for some reason, i doubt they will throw him in there.

OMG SAD PEOPLE SAYING IT SHOULD HAVE MORE THAN ARMAGEDDON! IF THIS GAME HAD 70+ CHARACTERS! THE GAMEPLAY & GRAPHICS WOULD BE UTTER SHIT! I PERSONALLY THINK 26 + DLC IS THE BEST WE COULD OF ACTUALLY GOTTEN! JUST BE THANKFUL THAT ANOTHER MORTAL KOMBAT IS IN THE WORKS INSTEAD OF WORRYING ABOUT HAVING HUNDREDS OF CHARACTERS!

I don’t see why you guys make a big deal about who knows more about Mk it’s a great series of games and I’m glad they are coming out with this addition to it. Boon, Tobias don’t stop you all only improving fighting game standards as we know it.

noob saibot is the original sub zero, but he did not debut as noob saibot until mortal kombat 2. we also didnt find out who noob saibot was until his mortal kombat deception ending. other than that we just knew that he was from the netherrealm sent by quan chi to spy on the fighters in the tournament.

stryker was suppose to be in mk 1 instead of sonya, but ed boon decided to put a female character in instead, bc no other fighting game had female characters, he named her sonya after his sister

OK DARREN!!! first if your going to question someones fan status, then you need to make sure you are 100% right about what you say. subzero brother did not become scorpion, he became subzero. but other than that, the trick question was a good one.

@MK Kronicles If they only have 4 DLC char- sorry, kharacters, I would be fine with that, but i would like to see maybe 2 of them be returning and 2 be new.

I want more than 26 characters. Make it more than Armageddon. But I like the fatalitys.

26 is enough for me, and I have been a fan of MK since 1992. DLC should include additional arenas, costumes, and maybe fatalities. If additional characters are part of DLC, limit it to 4 maybe. Cramming tons of characters bloats and cheapens the game by recycling sprite frames, moves, and basic attacks among characters. Keep the character roster balanced in way of abilities, strengths, weaknesses, and such is far more important.

How is that exciting news. MK9 is supposed to have the most charecters in it so far. DLC or not, 26 charecters is really disappointing to me. MK Armageddon had 62 charecters plus the one you can create.
