By extracting a file contained within the recently released demo for Mortal Kombat, one wily hacker was able to discover and reveal the game’s full roster, each character’s storyline, and some of the modes contained within the game.
While gamers have been given various teases as to which of Mortal Kombat’s classic characters were going to be making an appearance in this reboot, this leaked roster confirms that, as expected, pretty much every classic or favorite character will be playable in the game.
There are, of course, those exceptions that will disappoint certain Mortal Kombat fans for not being included, but overall it’s a solid roster of nostalgic combatants.
On top of the roster for the game, the hacker was also able to uncover each storyline, from beginning to end, for all of the playable characters within the game.
Though it was only seen in text form, some of the specific character endings and the main game’s storyline reveal some real twists and turns.
Without further ado, here is the leaked complete roster for Mortal Kombat:
- Liu Kang
- Kung Lao
- Smoke (human)
- Shang Tsung
- Noob Saibot
- Cyber Sub-Zero
- Shao Khan
We’ve seen trailers for some of Mortal Kombat’s stages, but now we know the other arenas that will be appearing in the game, and the return of the Krypt mode. For those that are unfamiliar with the Krypt, it is essentially a series of unlockables — 500 in this version of Mortal Kombat — that give the player access to anything from new fatalities to concept art.
The concept may seem strange to some, but it looks like MK will be learning from recent game design, and giving players an extensive system for acquiring extra content and fatalities.
Speaking of fatalities, the forum post also reveals that babalaties and friendships, two of the more bizarre riffs on fatalities will be making appearances in the game. Unfortunately, aside from the mention there was no in-depth information on which characters will be able to perform the over-the-top moves.
While gamers who might want to keep their Mortal Kombat experience pure and leave the storytelling to their own specific game session will surely look no further, those who are interested can head on over to the forums at Hadoken to read each character’s ending. It’s absolutely filled with spoilers for some of the game’s big secrets so view at your own risk.
Which of your favorite characters are you glad to see make the Mortal Kombat roster? Are there any notable characters that were left out?
Mortal Kombat releases April 19, 2011 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
