The heavens have opened, the Gods of Greek lore, and the Elder Gods of the Realms have spoken! Giving us Kratos, the God of War and placing him as a playable character in the upcoming Mortal Kombat game.
Naturally, the revenge fueled anti-hero will be exclusive to the Playstation 3 version of the game. It is said that he will not be involved in the story itself, but he will have his own moves, and his own fatalities.
Can you imagine how awesome that would be for Kratos to come through on MK? He is a perfect fit, as brutal as his games are! With the ancient stories told through the God of War series, it’s to bad they cant utilize that in some way. I’d imagine though that after Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, they’d want to keep the crossovers to a low minimum. But this crossover fits with the brutal, bloody direction Ed Boon is trying to steer the game in.
Now the only question to ask is, who will the 360 have for an exclusive? Will the 360 even have one for their game? I was searching my mind for one character that would fit in Mortal Kombat, not story wise, but just a face pounding, smash mouth character and I personally can’t think of such a person that fits that bill AND is exclusive to the 360 system. Marcus Fenix maybe? Master Chief doesn’t fit this level of ridiculous violence, but who knows. They’d definitely have to get someone who is as recognizable as Kratos. Money is on a Gears of War character.
Who would you like to see enter the realm of Mortal Kombat dear reader? And how do you feel about Kratos being added to the roster? Let us know!
