Thanks to a slip up on the Xbox Marketplace, the next guest fighter in NetherRealm Studios‘ highly anticipated new-gen brawler Mortal Kombat X may have been confirmed to be Predator. Given that Jason Voorhees, another classic horror icon, has already been confirmed for the game, it’s not too difficult to believe that Predator, the ultimate hunter, could be joining the expanding list of kombatants. The creature’s kick ass array of weapons and abilities would fit right in with Mortal Kombat’s brutal fighting style to be sure, and I can’t wait to see what kind of gameplay that translates into.
The DLC listing also goes on to mention that two more characters will be included with the release as well. Given that Freddy Kruger was featured in the last, surprisingly successful Mortal Kombat title, I’d consider him a safe bet for inclusion in this latest release too. That leaves one more slot wide open for delicious speculation, especially given that they seem to be going with a horror icon theme for these DLC fighters.
Who would you like to see fill in those 2 vacant character slots? More horror icons or maybe some classic action film characters? We’ll find out for sure in a few short weeks when Mortal Kombat X releases on April 14
