I am a PS3 owner and someday hope to be a PS4 owner, yet I am not at all dissatisfied with my choice to delay purchase, solely based on the current PS4 library. When I transitioned from a Playstation 1 to a Playstation 2, I was pleasantly surprised that I could for the most part rid myself of my PS1...

Kratos Brings Might of Olympus to Mortal Kombat

Posted on Wednesday, December 8 @ 09:29:02 Eastern by

Mortal Kombat
is easily one of the most recognizable franchises in video game history. If not for its fighting genre legacy, then for the controversy surrounding the series' extreme level of violence. The most recently released Mortal Kombat had the cast facing off against characters from DC Universe. This was a disappointment to many long-time fans as the series-staple "fatalities" were toned down significantly to better fit in with the superhero "kombatants". After much outcry, Ed Boon and his newly formed NetherRealm Studios have vowed to return Mortal Kombat to its gritty, violent roots with their upcoming reboot.

Fighting games have often featured cameo appearances from other franchise's iconic characters characters. Soul Calibur has featured Darth Vader, Yoda, Spawn, Tekken's Heihachi Mishima, and even Link from the Legend of Zelda. The upcoming Mortal Kombat is going to be following this trend by adding a character outside of the MK folklore that is known for his unwavering brutality.

In the January issue of PlayStation: The Official Magazine, it has been revealed that Kratos from God of War will be joining the other kombatants in their fight. Kratos, won't have his own storyline within the game, but he will feature his own special moves and fatalities fit for a god. With Kratos single-handedly taking down the Gods of Olympus, he should have no problem at all with the Mortal Kombat cast. Then again, Scorpion's spear may reach further than the blades of chaos.

Since Kratos is a PlayStation exclusive character, it's safe to say he'll only be in the PS3 version of Mortal Kombat. Which leaves the question, what about the Xbox 360 version of the game? Will we see Master Chief squaring off against Sub-Zero? Let us know in the comments what other characters you could see fitting into the MK universe.
