Maybe someone didn’t give Todd MacFarlane the memo, because he just tweeted out that Spawn will be coming to Mortal Kombat 11 almost two weeks after it was initially announced.
So we’re not exactly sure what to make of this. Todd MacFarlane recently tweeted that he’s happy to announce that Spawn will be a DLC character in Mortal Kombat 11. “That's all I can say for now,” the Spawn creator wrote, adding, “more news coming soon.”
Which is great and all, but developers NetherRealm Studios already announced this along with the Shang Tsung trailer way back on May 31st. Along with that, we also found out that Keith David, the original voice actor who played Spawn in the animated series, will reprise his role for the game.
I CAN FINALLY CONFIRM SPAWN IN MORTAL KOMBAT 11!!— Todd McFarlane (@Todd_McFarlane) June 10, 2019
I know A LOT of you folks have been asking about this and I can FINALLY say...YES! Spawn will be in @MortalKombat 11!!
That's all I can say for now...more news coming soon.#mk11 pic.twitter.com/R3ymLhtlCP
We also found out that Sindel and Nightwolf--two Mortal Kombat 3 characters--will also return as DLC characters along with Spawn and Shang Tsung.
So yeah. Maybe Ed Boon forgot to email MacFarlane? Or maybe there was some sort of timed delay on his nondisclosure agreement. Either way, we’re calling this one old news.
The real mystery is who will be the two mystery characters announced along with the Shang Tsung trailer. Previous rumors pointed to The Terminator, DC Comics’ Joker, and even Ash from the Evil Dead series. However, the latest rumors point to Sweet Tooth from the Twisted Metal franchise, as well as Nick Sax from the SyFy TV show Happy!.
Both of those come from tweets directly from NetherRealm director and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon, so we take them fairly seriously. However, we still haven’t received any official confirmation from him at this year’s E3 conference, and we were kinda expecting to hear something now that the festivities are in full swing.
Mortal Kombat 11’s Kombat Pack will arrive for early access on June 18th, with the rest of us getting it on June 25th. It’ll cost $39.99 on its own or can be bundled in with the base game for $99.99 in Mortal Kombat 11 Premium Edition.
