Mortal Kombat X Will Likely Entertain A Guest Fighter

Who would you want to see as a guest character?

Fighting games have taken to featuring recognizable guest characters, and the legendary Mortal Kombat series is no exception. The last entry boasted the "Nightmare on Elm Street" villain Freddy Krueger (via DLC), and it looks like developer NetherRealm Studios will deliver another mystery guest for Mortal Kombat X.

Speaking during a Mad Catz stream (as reported by Event Hubs), series creator Ed Boon said Krueger was the "most-downloaded character" in franchise history. On top of which, Scorpion was the most downloaded character in Injustice: Gods Among Us, also developed by NetherRealm. Said Boon:

"I think there's a novelty to having a downloaded guest character. So I think the chances are pretty high. I don't think every single one of them will be a guest, but I think the chances of at least one of them will be pretty good."

Oh yeah, fighting fans love to see new faces. Any guesses as to who the developers might choose to offer for MKX...?

hmmm. we could see Kratos return again as a freebie for PS-folk. He seems like a natural fit for the series.

I agree with Temujin. They should bring back Kratos for the ps3/4 versions.

AS for who the special guest should be... I have no idea. Seeing how there is 3 fighting styles again, I'd say Raiden from mgs2/Rising.

Raiden vs Raiden. That could definitely be seen from space.

Voorhees is too slow for MK, like zombie slow. The character needs to be fast and agile or at least agile, someone like Leatherface.

Oooh! The Shredder! I don't mean 80's cartoon Shredder either. Actually, that would be hilarious. He could blame his losses on Bebop & Rocksteady. His Fatality would be screaming "Blast you!" and running away.

Yeah, wonder who'd be a good fit from their (100% exclusive) roster of characters. Any guesses or suggestions? For some reason or another though, to my knowledge, there was no such counterpart to Kratos on the XBOX for the last MK.
