Mortal Kombat X – Expect At Least One Guest Character, Says Creative Director

The EVO 2014 finals are currently underway as of this writing, but in addition to great fights between pro-level players, gamers are also being treated to new information about exciting upcoming fighters like NeatherRealm Studio’s Mortal Kombat X.

Yesterday, we caught the first gameplay reveal of an iconic Mortal Kombat character, Raiden. Check it out here if you missed it.

More recently, franchise co-creator Ed Boon, dished out a few more details on what the studio is planning for post-launch support of Mortal Kombat X.

According to Boon’s interview with MadCatz (3:47:00), DLC characters are part of the plan, at least one of which will be a guest fighter from a different franchise. Additional guest characters are a possibility.

If you’ve been following NetherRealm Studios since Mortal Kombat 9, the idea of guest characters isn’t exactly new. Scorpion was a DLC character for their DCU-based fighter, Injustice: Gods Among Us, while Freddy Krueger made a DLC appearance in MK9 in addition to Kratos’ inclusion in the base game.

Mortal Kombat X is slated to be released on the PC, PlayStation 3, PlayStation 4, Xbox 360 and Xbox One platforms sometime next year.
