Goro and Jade Come To Mortal Kombat
Written Monday, January 10, 2011 by Richard Walker
Another two characters have been confirmed for Mortal Kombat, joining Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Johnny Cage, Reptile et al for another bout of bone-crunchingly brutal violence. Game Informer have the scoop once again in their February issue, revealing Goro and Jade as the next two spine-crackers to make their way into the growing MK roster.
Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon says that Goro will adhere to his traditional appearance, with four arms and a big ponytail as usual. He'll also be able to throw projectiles - ie. fireballs - and will reside in his dank and inhospitable lair, decorated with corpses dangling from the ceiling. Nice interior design there.
Jade was originally a non-playable hidden green-attired version of Mileena and Kitana in Mortal Kombat II, and apparently her look will be a blend of her Ultimate Mortal Kombat (in which she became playable) and her get-up in Mortal Kombat: Deception, and she'll utilise her trademark boomerang weapon.
There's also talk of post-launch DLC, which Mortal Kombat Online speculates could mean more guest pugilists in a similar vein to Kratos, coming to the roster as downloads. That remains to be seen of course, but it sounds like a great idea.
Mortal Kombat is out in April 2011.
This better be some bullshit
