Mortal Kombat 11 hasn’t even been released yet, as it releases Wednesday, April 23rd. That hasn’t stopped rumors from surfacing about the identity of upcoming DLC characters. A Reddit user by the name of “LeoNatan,” datamined the Nintendo Switch version of the game and has revealed that there are nine upcoming DLC characters who are listed in the game’s files and they are the following;
- Shang Tsung
- Ash Williams
As can be seen, there are some interesting inclusions in the list, such as Terminator, Spawn, and Joker from Batman. The list of characters is so interesting in fact, that it could be said that this list is possibly bogus and should be taken with a grain of salt. However, LeoNatan provided a detailed guide on how he accessed the files and how you can access and view the files yourself. The results of this guide have been verified and backed up by other Reddit users who have tried the guide giving credibility to the leak. Mortal Kombat 11 Mortal Kombat 11 releases in a couple of days, so we’ll be sure to get an official announcement about DLC characters in the not too far off future.
This leak seems like it is actually true. The guest characters seem like they could certainly fit into the Mortal Kombat universe, not to mention NetherRealm Studios has already worked with The Joker a few time with Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe and the Injustice games. LeoNatan also went out of his way to provide a detailed guide that other Reddit users have backed up, so he wants people to either really see that he is telling the truth about this or is really putting in a lot of effort just to set up this ruse, if it is a ruse. Either way, we’ll see if it’s true or not sooner or later.
