Mortal Kombat has long been a series that provides great focus to expanding its universe and lore, providing a ton of backstory that both competitive and casual fans can enjoy. As such, when Mortal Kombat X was announced earlier this month, the community went into a flurry of discussion on which characters should be included in its cast.
While Scorpion and Sub-Zero are obvious choices after their appearances in the first trailer, everything else is up in the air for other returning characters. NetherRealm Studios creative direction Ed Boon has stated that chances are high to see a character from Mortal Kombat 4 in the cast, but few other hints have been given so far.
That being said, we thought it would be fun to put together an extensive list of Mortal Kombat’s combatants and allow the community to vote on who they want to see in the upcoming title.
The poll below may not be as comprehensive as possible, but it does include over sixty fighters from past installments for you to vote on. You will only be able to select five fighters, however, so choose wisely!
But as this poll only charts votes, we would very much like to hear why you made the choices you did. If you didn’t see your favorite character and were forced to vote “Other,” let us know who we missed out on. And, as always, feel free to discuss your selections in our comments.
Mortal Kombat X is scheduled to release for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation 3, Xbox 360, and PC sometime in 2015.
