Mortal Kombat X Top 5 Character Wishlist

Warner Bros. Interactive recently announced that classic Mortal Kombat character Goro will be available as a pre-order bonus, playable character for Mortal Kombat X. Goro joins Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kano and Raiden in the roster of returning classic characters for the new game, which is officially due out on April 14, 2015. The regular roster will be divided by 12 returning characters and 12 new ones. In anticipation of the sequel, I have compiled a list of characters I would like to see make an appearance as playable “Kombatants” for Mortal Kombat X.

5. Kabal

Kabal has always been one of my favorite characters, going back to Mortal Kombat 3. I always liked that Kabal was originally a gangster who had gone straight, but had become horribly scarred. He had a cool look and an awesome mask. Unfortunately, Kabal met his end as a warrior for Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat 9. However, in this franchise, death is rarely final. Kabal was resurrected as a minion of Quan Chi. Ultimately, I would like to see Kabal brought back to the fold somehow and returned to the side of the Earthrealm.

4. Frost

Frost is from the Lin Kuei and is Sub-Zero’s apprentice. I loved Frost’s design and having a new female character with similar ice powers to those of Sub-Zero. Frost has not made an appearance in Mortal Kombat since Mortal Kombat: Armageddon. It is time for a change. Frost has not had as much face time as others, so I would like to see more of her.

3. Jason Voorhees

At least one guest character can probably be expected for Mortal Kombat X. For the 2011 Mortal Kombat Reboot, it was Freddy Krueger. God of War’s Kratos was the guest character for the PlayStation 3 edition. The next obvious step after Krueger is the hocky-mask wearing boogeyman, Jason Voorhees.

2. Predator

The Predator alien is really the guest character I most want to see in Mortal Kombat X. I imagine that the only hang-up is obtaining licensing of the character from 20th Century Fox. It would be awesome to have Jason Voorhees or the Predator as a guest playable movie character for the game. Considering the violent gory content of the Predator film franchise, the alien hunter would fit right at home in Mortal Kombat.

1. Kintaro

Kintaro was my favorite boss character in the first two Mortal Kombat games. In my glorious Mortal Kombat youth, dealing with Kintaro was quite the ordeal. At first I thought Goro was bad. Then, a new bigger and badder version of Goro came along. I was disappointed that Kintaro did not get a playable DLC for Mortal Kombat 9, but he did make an appearance in the game. I would definitely like to see Kintaro make a return as a playable character for Mortal Kombat X.

    1. Spawn would be another good choice. At the same time, Spawn is little behind the times for this game maybe since his heyday was in the 1990s.

  1. Let’s be real. There are really only 5 spots for the returning. I’m convinced that Liu Kang (sonya and cage are also making it even I think it’s dumb) makes the cut and that would make every character from MK1.

    Reptile and Barraka are most have in this new instalment. I think they are fan favorites. Making it to only 3 spots.

    If I’m correct, at some point Cyrax and Sektor (for some reason) were also hinted. That makes realistically only 1 spot available. And it’s hard to choose. I think they will be smart and release DLC with set of 3 or 4 characters. Milenna Jade Kitana Sindel I think would be one of those DLC if they go with that. Ermac, Smoke, Kabal and Jax another. I think that way they will milk more money out of the costumers.

        1. Nothing major, just like a next-gen tweaked design so he looks good. I mean case in point that Sub-Zero and Scorpion’s designs have been revamped too, but they are still reminiscent of their classic looks.

          That said, some redesigns have turned out pretty well. Reptile is actually more reptilian looking now instead of just being like a re-colored Scorpion and Sub-Zero.

          1. True. I would also like to see how brutal Kintaro’s X-Ray moves would be. I would also love to see more Fatalities from him.

  2. I really don’t like for there to be new characters. I like the old ones and would love for Sonya (my fave), Kitana, Mileena, Jade (my fave), Sindel, Tanya, Johnny Cage, Rain, Li Mei, & Liu Kang,
