As you all know Neather realm has confirmed that there will be four DLC characters, the last character is still a mystery at this point.So before the official word gets out Who do you think is the most likely to be the newest addition to the MK roster? 
 
keep in mind I'm asking who think it will be not who you would want.

#2 Posted by Disengage (429 posts) -

I'm kind of thinking it will be a new character or maybe Shinnok.

Mo mo mo mo mo Motaro?

#4 Posted by The_Nubster (2355 posts) -

What's the difference between who we think it'll be and who we want? We have no hints. I think it'll be Frost! And I also want it to be Frost. So there.

Fujin since there is a clip of the announcer saying his name.
I also think he is a lame character to add.

Is that clip really in the game? The only source I've seen is a Youtube video that could have been dubbed over.

Survey SAYS!!!! I have no clue.
 
Honestly I don't.

Fire, the guy who follows Smoke around...

#11 Posted by Nocall (356 posts) -

I'm guessing a female fighter (making it 2 male and 2 female DLCs), but I don't know enough about MK lore to know who would be good. 
 
That or Kobra. Didn't Boon tweet something about SF awhile ago?

#12 Posted by Slaker117 (4843 posts) -

@Nocall: Boon is always saying something about Street Fighter.

#13 Posted by CABBAGES (534 posts) -

i think it might be a re skinned Kratos called something different

I heard it on Youtube as well. Could have been fake I'm not sure, but in that same clip they had all of Skarlet's fatalities before she even had a trailer out.

I've heard rumor that Jason and/or Freddy will be the final character. WB owns both characters, so it's possible.

Ryu?

World-breaking as it might be, I would approve of those additions.

They said it will be a completely new character.

Yeah, it's definitely in there. I think someone from MK4 makes the most sense, as they can use them to build up to the sequel they're obviously working on. A lot of the characters appear in the backgrounds, but Fujin even has sound files, making him the most likely, in my opinion. I'd love to see Frost as well, but do we really need another Sub-zero character?

Not sure where you heard that, but it sounds like it was made up by a 12 year old and it's almost certainly not going to happen after the backlash from the last cross over.

That one ninja dude.

Don't you mean DLK?

Evil Ryu.

i think the fourth character is going to be console exclusive becasue they would have siad it if it was anyone else. i think there are few people that it culd be post 4.

the xbox will eather be a gears of war character of killer instinct(please, please, please) character

PS3 will get someone from twisted metal

it could also end up being someone from WB's stable of properties

@PrimeSynergy: I see what you did there.
#26 Posted by SuperAmmario (3 posts) -

Probably Tanya. They already have the model for her from Shao Khan's Colosseum stage.

#27 Posted by amomjc (977 posts) -

I think it will be a new character, that's why they are keeping it secret and not letting us know.

I'd give them a go, they have pretty awesome x-ray and fatality possibilities.

To be fair, everything about MK sounds like it was made up by a 12 year old.

Cratos

That would make me wonder... is there a Skorpion, a Johnny Kage, A Cano and a Liu Cang rolling around at Netherrealm somewhere?

#33 Posted by jjnen (661 posts) -

I don't see the point of introducing a completely new character in DLC. Unless it's something totally awesome like crazy bear man on acid.

#34 Posted by Skald (4370 posts) -

Tanya's a pretty conservative guess.

I really hope it's not Frost.

#35 Posted by Zrais (148 posts) -

Frost would be lame.

#36 Posted by StarvingGamer (8555 posts) -

It's gonna be Frost.

Would his intro phrase be "where there is fire there is smoke"?

#38 Posted by damswedon (3201 posts) -

@SuperAmmario: So does Frost, Sareena, Reiko, Daegon, Kira and Lei Mei.

I'd like it to be Frost but I'd be happy with Lei Mei or Tayna

#39 Posted by beeftothetaco (426 posts) -

Pointman. WB owns the rights to FEAR, right?

#40 Posted by Tim_the_Corsair (3065 posts) -

New grey female ninja named Mist or Myst or some such

#41 Posted by keyhunter (3207 posts) -

I really hope it's Ke-I mean Kobra.

Khameleon is the female gray ninja.

#43 Posted by DrMcKittrick (231 posts) -

Going to go with Frost.

#44 Posted by Floppypants (798 posts) -

It's hard to guess who the 4th character could be because I feel that Rain was the one big fan request. Beyond him, I guess Fujin? Havik? Tanya?

#45 Posted by fox01313 (5089 posts) -

Could have sworn this thread has already popped up a few times. Anywhooo, my thoughts are that it's either going to be something like Tanya (as her model is made & in the background on some scenes), strange pick is Mokap or it'll just be an MK character creation version of Ed Boon (using one of the film crew in the challenge tower with Johnny Cage - producer/director or stuntman).

#46 Posted by Slaker117 (4843 posts) -

I can't imagine them making the 4th piece of DLC a joke character. It's not funny when you have to pay for it.

I could however, see it being a dude with Kratos' move set. It would make some amount of sense, creating parody between the PS3 and 360 versions, and wouldn't require any additional balance work. With the season pass on Xbox you'd end up with the same characters in both versions if you only spend $15 extra in each, and if you really want to, PS3 owners could buy what would essentially be an alternate costume for the Spartan.

#47 Posted by JohnDudebro (924 posts) -

I think Tremor would be a really cool inclusion.

Other than that, my heart wants Khameleon but I know it won't happen.

you give some good points, but SOE owns kratos and would never allow that, and I'm sure Neather Realm wouldn't take a risk like that with some one else's IP without their permission.
