Mortal Kombat 9: Predator DLC not ruled out
Ok, it has not been confirmed that Preditor will be a DLC character in Mortal Kombat 9 but after the Freddy Krueger release speculation has been swirling around the internet as to whether or not any other non- Mortal Kombat 9 characters will make an appearance.
Fans @sidshuman and @noobde tweeted Mortal Kombat 9 co-creator Ed Boon to ask whether or not Alien/ Xenomorph would be too much of a stretch and Boon replied “I think Predator would be a closer match with MK”. Of course this tweet is not a confirmation that the Predator will definitely be a part of the possible line up for Mortal Kombat 9 but it has certainly whetted the appetite of fans who enjoyed playing the recent Alien Vs Predator game.
Although the idea of the Predator being a part of Mortal Kombat 9 is pretty cool, with all his special attacks and weapons that would fit nicely into the Mortal Kombat style, the rights to him may be tricky to negotiate. It would seem that the rights to a digital Preditor belong to Sega so there could be some wrangling required. It would also be pretty neat if some of the characters from past Mortal Kombat releases made a comeback as DLC’s with such a vast back catalog of great characters it might not be so necessary to look further a field. That said the Freddy Kreuger DLC looks pretty awesome. Watch this space!
