If you don't have classic characters in a new MK installment, it simply isn't Mortal Kombat .

And when you have the new Game Informer in your hands, you'll find out that two popular characters will indeed return to the roster in the MK reboot. …well, thanks to Mortal Kombat Online , we don't have to wait; the info is already here: Goro and Jade will be returning. Goro will reprise his role as a boss (and an annoying one, too, if history is any indication), and he'll even be back in his classic Lair setting. As for Jade, she'll be a blend of her UMK3 and MKD personas and of course, her boomerang will be in full effect. Also, for the Xbox 360 fans, it has been confirmed that the developers are seeking an exclusive MK fighter for the 360 version. After all, the PS3 fans get Kratos, so… Nothing has been announced just yet, but that's only because they can't really find an exclusive character besides Master Chief in the 360 world… Okay, sorry, sorry, didn't mean it. Swear.

Anyway, they have hinted at the possibility that more characters could arrive via DLC in the future, so that'd be cool. We could just keep firing off suggestions and if the team sees enough demand for a certain character, we might end up getting our wish.

It's impossible to find a 360 character worthy… At least one that isn't a blatant cash in of an IP.

Kratos has everything to do with words "Mortal Kombat".

its probably going to be some comic character who has nothing to do with the 360, like spawn or something

@Ben

I was just listing exclusive characters that I could think of for the 360 (none of them are badass enough to be in a MK game).

I know that it's multiplatform I threw him out there cause the 360 doesn't have that many characters who could…. IDK fit into the MK universe, so I get thumb-downs for trying to help come up with ideas….REALLY????????????

Apparently there is no exclusive character for the 360 version

I was gonna say Marcus Fenix. He has his Golden Lancer strapped to his back and whips it out as a special move.

Honestly, I reckon the PS3 version is the version most will get cos of the Kratos exclusive. His character just suits the MK universe perfectly.

And Marcus Fenix? He's violent, yeah, but his character just doesn't suit the MK universe. Sorry MS, but Sony won this battle.

And apart from Fenix, there's really no other exclusive character they can get for the MK universe. Except the Kinectimals tiger, that would be freakin hilarious!!! I'd get MK on 360 just to play as Kinectimals tiger cub, trick your opponent by looking cute and fluffy, then spring onto them, maul their neck and fatality rip their head off with the tiger's eyes shining red at the screen!! LOL!! 😀

lol. my brother said the same thing about a possible 360 exclusive character but added something about alan wake in the MK game too. I can actually admit I'm looking forward to a MK game for the first time in years (since MK 3).

Alan wake could be a possibility his fatality would be him burning someone eyes out with a really bright Flash light. I think were all looking forward to this being a really good Mk.

Master Chief and Marcus Fenix are the only two that come to mind and make sense. It really never hit me until just now how few exclusive franchises the box has!

What about the cop from Crackdown? I can't for the life of me remember his name as those two games kinda sucked a lot, but he might be a decent fit with his super powers and what not

Crackdown isn't that bad..Pretty addicting and yet very repetitive..Although I could see a maxed out cop maybe in MK…

I dig it can't wait to get this. I remember back in the day at the grocery store teenagers use to stack their quarters on the screen.

I always did like Jade better than Mileena.

Xbox doesn't really have any exclusives it's so bad they had to put gta and ff.

Jade! Yes, now I'm even more psyched for this game. Hope she looks more like she did in UMK3 than in MKD. Her MKD look is a bit too superficial/over the top for no reason.

Goro really manhandles you in MKII… It's great to see him back.

LOL Alan ''no cardio'' Wake? ffs.

Marcus Phoenix or any GeoW character wouldn't fit in any way on a MK game , but of course they can force it.

Halo too kiddy for Mk universe.

If they put a decent character I would be surprised.

I'm really psyched for this game. I was such an MK nut back in the day. Really looking forward to seeing MK go back to it's roots, that winning formula. I sure hope they get it right.

As for an xbox exclusive character… I'm stumped… I think you guys have already narrowed it down to the only two that could make sense… and Kratos owns everyone.

I have a vision of the opening sequence with an awesomely choreographed and well rendered fight sequence between Kratos and Scorpion. That would be badass.

Frank West.

Dead Rising was XBOX exclusive. He's one bad mofo. Fatality…infection then gruesome death with random weapon.

what are you talking about no exclusives? The 360 version will get 2010 Camero SS from Forza. Fatality could be parking the enemy in the garage with the car running. You heard it here first.

Ah-ha! The Too Human protagonist. That is just about the only exclusive character that would fit in a Mortal Kombat game. Master Chief doesn't really fight, neither do the Gears characters, Alan Wake runs around with a torch, and the cop from Crackdown might be a halfway decent fit but the Too Human guy would be better.

Not saying he is a good character or that game was even halfway decent.

I like the additions of Goro and Jade. I favored Jade more than Kitana and Mileena. This MK is going to be one hell of a reboot..

As far as 360 characters..Fenix, Master Chief, and Alan Wake only ring a bell. I can see Alan Wake in it..doesn't need any story behind him. He has a heavy duty flashlight, flash bangs, flares, etc…..Sad…lack of exclusives leaves for lack of a character to implement into such a game..

Such a problem with the 360 they don't have a character with charisma, GeoW characters looks like Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles rejects,Halo? Power Rangers rejects, Alan Wake? Silent Hill Reject and no cardio.

This leaves..(imagine this with Taokaka's voice lol) Too Human Guy!

Yeah I can't think of anybody for 360 either. It must be tough when you have no games.

I'm really looking forward to this reboot too, but THE most important thing alongside numerous cool fatalities are the stage fatalities.

We must have The Pit in all it's iterations and anything new they can think of, we must have the Deadpool, the spiked ceiling, etc. There was no feeling quite like knocking a d*ckhole off the bridge and watching him fall to his brutal death.

Ahhh the nostalgia, I was Scorpion and Reptile back in the day. Useda draw MK pictures in class instead of listening to the teacher. 🙂

lmao @ "It must be tough when you have no games"

Man the stage fatalities are great. Personally I liked the deadpool stage fatality more then The Pit ones. Nothing like watching your enemy get cooked to death and the corpse float past you..Like the spiked ceiling as well.

I'm a die hard Sub-Zero fan though..Bad Assery since the beginning of the series..

For a sec there I thought you meant a Japanese developer or maybe a Japanese childhood friend. Then it turned out it was "Used + to".

Wow though, MK pictures as a kid? Would have caused your teachers some worry if they found out: "Golly, World, what is this groovy hellish lookin' picture! So much groovy gore! Wait till I show your parents, groovy." Ah the seventies. I wasn't around then.

I was thinking about this whenever I first saw Kratos in the MK trailer. I can't think of anyone especially since most 360 exclusives are shooters. I dunno I think they won't have a choice but to only do Kratos for ps3 or stick with a multiplat character for the 360.
