Ever since the reboot of the Mortal Kombat series, more and more guest fighters have joined the tournament. From the likes of Freddy Kreuger to Leather Face, from the Xenomorph in “Alien” to Kratos in “God of War“, we have seen some awesome Kombatants. This pack is no different.
This new Kombat pack brings back the fan favorite of Shang Tsung (now in a pack), Sindel, and Nightwolf. With new amazing looks, these characters feel refreshed and ready to go.
But you don’t care about the characters you’ve already seen. You want the new guest characters to the game. Well stepping up first is someone who has been in the fighting game genre (also produced by Netherrealm studios) and has been in a Mortal Kombat game before. Ladies and gentleman I introduce… The Joker! Sporting a design that makes him look like a frat boy dressed up as clown for Halloween, the Joker is returning once again to the Mortal Kombat universe.
The next big boy from the future is the Terminator. With a nice new stylized beard and much more grizzly appearance, this T-800 fighting robot is ready for kombat.
Last but definitely not least is the best character to come out of this pack. The man who once killed God and the Devil himself, has slain more demons and angels than there is in Heaven and Hell, Todd McFarlane‘s greatest creation… Spawn. This character has been in a fighting game since “Soul Caliber 2“. A perfect fit for Mortal Kombat, this Hell-Spawn fits the mold of what a Mortal Kombat character is. A creation of the 90’s, violent, bloody and remorseless, Spawn should’ve been in Mortal Kombat years ago. Now if only they can get Doomguy from Doom and then they’d have a perfect roster.
These characters fit the mold of what Mortal Kombat is. By bringing back amazing characters as well as bringing in new characters from different franchises, it has made the Mortal Kombat series the top fighting game franchise of all time.
