Mortal Kombat 11 was a success, but as is with any release from a popular series, it also had some glaring omissions. But according to the game’s director, these absences were for good reason. We’re going to take a look at how Mortal Kombat has changed over the years and why two of its most prominent characters have gone MIA.
Mortal Kombat 11 had a vast roster of characters, but despite this, it was still missing out on numerous fan-favorite characters. Mortal Kombat has been going for so many years, and it’s featured so lots of playable characters over the years as well that undoubtedly some don’t make it into every video game. For those that do not understand: Smoke debuted back in Mortal Kombat II as a concealed challenger prior to ending up being a secret playable character in Mortal Kombat 3.
Smoke as a ninja has a little a bigger fandom, but both characters were in demand before MK11 was released and throughout its post-launch assistance. Neither were included however, and the reason that is basic. According to series co-creator and director Ed Boon, they needed rest. Which’s it. This is certainly a frustrating explanation for those who were desperate to see them in the most recent installation, but it unlocks for them to be in Mortal Kombat 12.
Mortal Kombat 11 had a huge lineup of characters, but in spite of this, it was still missing out on many fan-favorite characters. Mortal Kombat has been going for so lots of years, and it’s featured so many playable characters over the years as well that inevitably some do not make it into every game.
For those that do not understand: Smoke debuted back in Mortal Kombat II as a concealed opponent prior to becoming a secret playable character in Mortal Kombat 3. As you may understand, he has a cameo in MK11, but that’s it. Likewise to Smoke, Stryker made his playable debut by means of Mortal Kombat 3, and he likewise has a cameo in MK11.
As always, feel totally free to leave a comment or more or 77 letting us know what you think or, additionally, hit me up on Twitter @Tyler_Fischer_and let me understand over there. Who do you wish to see pick up via Mortal Kombat 12? Would you be thrilled to see Smoke and Stryker return or do they need a longer rest?
Mentioning Mortal Kombat 12, there’s still no word of when it is revealed, let alone launched. That stated, the abovementioned Boon did apparently tease the video game’s roster, or a minimum of a few characters that may be contained within it. Sadly for Smoke and Stryker fans, neither have been discussed up until now. This isn’t a bad thing, as a few of the characters mentioned were actually relatively unofficial. What it suggests however exists’s absolutely nothing to be thrilled about yet if either of this set is your preferred character.
