Kratos will be in the newest Mortal Kombat

Posted: December 8, 2010 by Tony Polanco in COOL STUFF

The Mortal Kombat series has been on life support ever since it went into 3D. There are fans of the newer MK games but these games are not nearly as good as the original games that came out in the early to mid 90s. It seems like the creators realized this because the new MK (while still being in 3D) will play like the original 2D games. But it seems that there will also be another reason to play the game…if you’re a PS3 owner.

It appears that Kratos, the hero of the God of war series will be an exclusive to PS3 playable character in the latest Mortal Kombat game. MK desperately needs anything to make it relevant again and it this may just work out for the struggling series. Kratos is an extremely popular character and one of the best game characters created in the last 10 years so putting him in MK should help the series immensely. The new MK (unlike Mortal Kombat vs DC) will bring back the excessive gore that the series is known for and having Kratos in the game will definitely make things a lot more brutal and bloody.

I personally wasn’t really planning on getting the new MK to be honest. While I loved the series back in the day, now I need a bit more substance from the fighting games I play and at the end of the day MK is all about gore and canned combo animations. Having Kratos in the game sounds cool though so I may pick this title up when the price drops.

Another thing that I am wondering is who will be the exclusive character in the Xbox 360 version of the game. I highly doubt that Microsoft would let the creators of MK make an exclusive character for the PS3 and not the 360. The question is, who would it be? The are next to no exclusive characters in the Microsoft camp so the only real candidates are Master Chief or Marcus Fenix. Either one of them would fit the MK universe pretty well I think. Master Chief looks like Cyrax and Sektor. Fenix is a big burly military dude like Jax and Stryker. I think Fenix would be the best guy to get into the game. The chainsaw fatalities would be pretty awesome I think.
