Mortal Kombat 2011: New Character List Update – Kratos!

We have some exciting news to bring you now, as it has been confirmed that Kratos will definitely be appearing in the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat reboot next year, although obviously he will be exclusive to the PlayStation 3.

As reported from CVG, it had previously been rumored, but not confirmed as detailed in our report last week, but thankfully, last night’s reveal at the Spike VGAs has added that extra bit of gloss to those planning to pick up the PS3 version of the game.

NetherRealm Studios has released a brand new trailer unveiling the God of War character to the Mortal Kombat franchise, and it’s pretty epic to say the least. We see a fight taking place between Scorpion and Sub Zero, only for Kratos to interrupt Scorpion’s imminent fatality on Sub Zero for a piece of the action himself.

The game is scheduled for release early next year, and is now an almost certain buy for PS3 owners previously sitting on the fence – don’t forget that Mortal Kombat or MK9 will also support stereoscopic 3D as well.

What are your thoughts on the inclusion of Kratos? You may have been against the franchise crossover seen in Mortal Kombat Vs DC Universe, but adding Kratos to the growing MK character roster is a different beast alltogether. Check out his trailer below and give us your reaction to this bombshell.

Kratos is by far the BEST choice they could make for the Mortal Kombat exclusivity in the PS3 version. However, they should've added a Gears of War character for the 360 version. Like Marcus Fenix. He isn't as good as Kratos but he comes pretty close and does have his own potential. although, shooter characters don't adapt too well into fighting games (Halo Spartan into that Dead or Alive game)

i think alex mercer or sgt james heller from prototype could make an excellent fight in mk, obviously in both consoles

Mortal Kombat on ps3 is going to support 3D the xbox360 want have the 3D support.. The exclusive games like god of war and final fantasy look 2x better than any xbox360 game. That's because the ps3 games store more gigs, 50gb+, on they're bluray disc. Where the xbox360 only store upto 30gigs on a disc. The ps3 has an advantage because they can support bigger games, this makes the future for the ps3 alot better than the 360. Soon Microsoft will need a new system to keep up,because the ps3 simply does everything. Also the ps3 games are scratch… Read more »

Adding Kratos is an awesome idea. He is practically a Mortal Kombat character already. I personally think the GOW games are the best games of all time (modern era). They took what used to be fun about games in the past as far as game play and then made you actually THINK about what you had to do. So I am obviously a little bias, but it is a great move and will motivate me to buy the game.

You people piss me off, always saying that 360 is better, or PS3 is better, Jesus Christ let it go, It's a never ending argument, The 360 isn't better than the PS3 VICE VERSA, I have both the systems, and I play them both, sure both systems have their flaws, but that doesn't mean you have to have a dick shoved up your ass about the other console, I bet most of you who talk shit about the other system hasn't ever even picked up a controller to the other.. Now back to MK:9, It will definitely be added to… Read more »

No dude, its not gonna be a metal gear solid charactor for Xbox. probably a spartan or something. something that screams XBOX. Raiden form MGS is a PS character, so not going to be there.
