First Gay Character Joins Mortal Kombat

Looks like the 22-year-old franchise has its first homosexual character.

According to Gay Star News, the new playable character for the recently released Mortal Kombat X is King Jin and it seems clear that he's gay.

This is based on a piece of video evidence, and was later confirmed by cinematic director Dominic Cianciolo on Twitter. The first clue can be seen in the cut-scene shows below, where the dialogue appears to make King Jin's orientation plain. At one point, King Jin refuses to train in Shao Lin and Raiden responds, "They care only about what is in your heart. Not whom your heart desires."

Cianciolo later Tweeted:

@bcharred I see people are picking up on the subtle exposition contained in Kung Jin's flashback. Glad we have observant fans!

Huh. The sad thing is, I know someone who won't like this character after knowing this. Even though he currently loves playing as Kung Jin.

Only idiots would have issue with a gay character.
Gay or not, it's still packed with MK fun.

I don't see the big deal with this. Doesn't affect how the game is played. People need to grow up and stop complaining!

Is his sexual orientation going to make him any better or worse as a fighter? I doubt it.

In this sort of game I'm not sure it makes any difference.

I don't really see why it's so necessary to have a gay character in Mortal Combat.

No one gives a shit about sexual orientation in a game like MK.

Like really... are we suddenly pretending Johnny Cage is straight all of a sudden?

is them trying to be progressive just wandering but i guess its really that big of deal really but it would be just a bit weird to start with cos this would be a first but i guess you would forget about it after playing for awhile, although idk how comfortablei would be if he did a gay finishing move that kinda stuff does make feel a bit uneasy

happy gaming
