Ed Boon, the development chief of Mortal Kombat 1, has once again teased fans with the possibility of upcoming DLC characters. Boon recently tweeted an image featuring several famous horror villains, many of whom have appeared as guest characters in Mortal Kombat before. However, it's the villains with a green question mark displayed that have caught the attention of fans the most.
The characters hinted at in the image include Michael Myers, Pinhead, Chucky, Jigsaw, and Ghostface. These potential additions have sparked excitement within the Mortal Kombat community. While NetherRealm, the studio behind the game, has yet to comment on these rumors, dataminers have previously found evidence of potential unannounced DLC characters.
Kombat Pack 1 has already been announced, featuring a lineup of characters detailed in IGN's Mortal Kombat 1 character guide. However, voice lines discovered through datamining suggest that Kombat Pack 2 may include Jade, Cassie Cage, Kung Jin, Noob Saibot, Cyrax, and Ghostface from the Scream films. Additionally, there are rumors of the T-1000 from Terminator and Conan the Barbarian making appearances in Mortal Kombat 1.
It's worth noting that Ed Boon is known for trolling fans on social media, so it's unclear whether his latest tweet is an actual hint or simply a playful gesture. NetherRealm and Warner Bros. Games have not responded to requests for comment regarding the datamined information.
In other Mortal Kombat 1 news, IGN recently reported on an impressive 89-hit combo that lasts nearly a minute. NetherRealm is also working on addressing a bug that gives Player 1 an unfair advantage. Furthermore, Boon has promised updates for the Nintendo Switch version of Mortal Kombat 1, which has received criticism for its performance.
