Complete Mortal Kombat 9 Character List Leaked

It’s only a matter of time till it’s the 19th of April for many of us. For every other person on the planet, it’s simply another day on the calendar, but for us gamers and those in the industry, it marks a very important day: one of the most highly anticipated games in 2011 and pretty much for quite some time will finally be unveiled in full for the masses. It is none other than the official release date for MK9.

The team at Nether Realms have been most generous with their fans, keeping us updated and releasing new content for us almost each week. We’ve been treated with previews, freebies and sometimes leaks.  There have been instances that we’ve been teased and kept on the edge but that’s how marketing works, now doesn’t it? Their efforts have paid off with many critics praising the game so far with what they’ve shown and giving positive press about it.

Characters have been speculated and revealed in time. It is such that a partial list has been floating over the net based on speculation and observation. However, fans need not speculate any longer. Recently a screen cap -literally a photo taken of a TV- has been released. I supposed this is the nearest thing to a possibly confirmed list right now, unless this is some very sophisticated hoax concocted by a very bored fan.

Confirmed characters that appear in the screen shot are as follows:

1st Row: Scorpion, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Sub-Zero

2nd Row: Sindel, Ermac, Reptile, Kitana

3rd Row: Johnny Cage, Jade, Mileena, Nightwolf

4th Row: Cyrax, Noob Saibot, (Human?) Smoke, Sektor

5th Row: Sonya, Jax, Kano, Stryker

6th Row: Shang Tsung, Baraka, Kabal, Rayden

7th Row: (Unconfirmed) Cyborg Sub-Zero, Sheeva, Quan Chi, (Unconfirmed) Cyborg Smoke

Shao Kahn and Goro are here too~ Not quite sure if they’re playable though. I do hope they will be.

If this is truly it, the list is nothing short of what we’ve already seen coming considering the previews that MK9 just might be series reinvention in itself. So we’ve got characters spanning from the first three titles mostly and some important ones from the latter.

What gets to me is the ‘Cyborg Sub-Zero on the DLC slots. Yes, the slots beside Sheeva’s left and Quan Chi’s right are meant for the DLC characters. What plot twist is this? And is that truly Smoke? Why… He looks humanoid in this one. Wasn’t he already fully robotic last time we saw him? Hmm. Only way to find out…

Mk9 is going to be out this April 19 and 21 for North America and Europe regions. Do pick up a copy and let’s figure it out. 😀

    About Shao Khan and Goro, I remember that in Mortal Kombat 3 (wich I have for sega mega drive) there was a cheat to unlock smoke (wich was in the midle of the list where there was before the logo of mortal kombat) and another one to unlock shao khan and motaro ( shao khan was added in the upper left corner and motaro in the upper right corner). So, I suppose it might be the same thing about shao khan and goro on mortal kombat 9, despite of both this games being from different companies.
