Mortal Kombat 11 Director Reveals Three Fighters Cut From The Game
Beyond a shadow of a doubt, Mortal Kombat 11 boasts one of the most incredible fighting game rosters of all time. The collection of familiar MK characters and cool new ones like Collector and Geras is great alone, but the DLC guest characters really put it over the top. With characters like The Terminator, Joker, and Spawn on the way, fans have a lot to be excited about. That said, there are some characters that unfortunately ended up on the cutting room floor.
In an interview with Brazilian game site Meu PS4, game director Ed Boon said there were three guest characters that he wanted to bring to MK11. He said that first, he wanted a character from longtime franchise competitor Street Fighter. This particular crossover has been long requested by Mortal Kombat fans so hearing that Boon wanted to make it happen is kind of a bummer since it didn’t end up panning out. The next one is a little surprising, as allegedly there were talks to bring John Wick into the series. But Boon’s Keanu worship, like ours, doesn’t end there.
Boon also tried to get a deal going to bring Neo from The Matrix movie franchise to Mortal Kombat 11. The character was in talks to be featured in Injustice 2, with that deal falling out as well. Boon hoped he could try again with Neo. Despite the bad news, there is still some hope for cool new guest characters to show up as Ash Williams from Evil Dead has been heavily teased by NetherRealm as well. There are, however, some rumors that suggest that Ash was replaced with the Terminator. Looks like we’ll just have to wait and see! Mortal Kombat 11 is available now for Xbox One, PlayStation 4, PC, and Nintendo Switch.
