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.
