Today, we are going to talk about which characterswould appear as DLC in the upcoming Mortal Kombat X. If you have played MK4, then this article is for you. So here we go...
I found a post from NetherRealm studios producer Shaun Himmerick last night, who confirmed on Twitter that there will be at least 3 Kombatants from MK4 as DLC Characters
With a lot of speculation on which ones would be picked, we are going to talk about some of those characters that I think would fit just perfectly in Mortal Kombat X.
Let's start off with Lord Shinnok. He is a fallen Elder God that made his debut in the spin-off game [Mortal Kombat](movie:38705) Mythologies: Sub Zero as the main antagonist. Folliowing that, he appeared in MK4 and MK: Gold before appearing in MK: Armageddon, where all the characters appeared. Although he didn't appear as a major character in MK9 (2011), he appeared at the ending where Quan Chi told him that his plan has worked, it turns out Quan Chi had been working for him the whole time, which leads us to who the main villain will be in MKX. Shinnok said he will soon be free and that Earthrealm and Outworld will soon be his to own which gives a clue that he might be the villain of the game. We will have to wait and see.
Then we have Jarek, he debuted in MK4, where he was the second in command of the Black Dragon clan. He later appeared in MK: Armageddon, where he joins every other character in the final battle of Armageddon. However, he died along with every character that took part in the battle. With MKX set in the alternate timeline, Jarek hasn't had a chance to appear in MK9 so hopefully, we will get him as DLC.
Finally we have Tanya, who first appeared as an ally to Lord Shinnok's Brotherhood of Shadow. She is also shown to have a bitter hatred of Jade. In MK: Armageddon, she was present at the final battle in her home world of Edenia, fighting for the villains. I don't know much about Tanya or Jarek, but I am hoping for them to be in MKX.
Reiko has recently appeared in the Mortal Kombat X comics that tie in to the game.
We already know that Quan Chi is going to appear, but who else from MK4 would appear.
