Ed Boon on The Addition of a Special Character Appearance for Mortal Kombat X

Posted 2014/07/12 by William Manzo in Gaming

Mortal Kombat X Kratos

During an interview with MADCATS at EVO 2014, Ed Boon was asked whether or not a special DLC character would be added to the Mortal Kombat X roster. Ed Boon’s response was clear, but didn’t confirm anything specific.

Mortal Kombat 9 had special DLC characters like Kratos and Freddy Krueger, and according to Ed Boon, Freddy was the most downloaded character for the title. During the interview the interviewer went on to say that the tradition of special appearances in the form of DLC had been popular, and we agree with that statement. Kratos and Freddy were not only awesome characters in the Mortal Kombat 9 roster, but they were fierce fighters that proved to be very competitive as well. While the MADCATS interviewer didn’t ask for an answer as to who would be a special appearance, Ed Boon did indeed confirm that a special character would be in Mortal Kombat X.

The continued popular tradition of adding characters like the ones in Mortal Kombat 9 (Kratos and Freddy) is an excellent one and one that shouldn’t be stopped. Ed Boon agreed with a similar statement by the MADCATS interviewer. So it makes you wonder who would be added into the Mortal Kombat X roster as a special appearance. I ask that very question considering that Kratos was already confirmed to not be in Mortal Kombat X (click here).
