Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate creative director Ed Boon has confirmed that a DLC character is definitely not coming MK11, and one that players will probably never get. Over the years, Mortal Kombat fans have spammed Boon with character requests. No matter what he tweets on Twitter, the responses are full of players asking for signs. Before Mileena was added MK11 with the game Ultimate many of these requests were for her. These days, you are more likely to see requests for Reptile, Ermac, Smoke and a variety of guest characters. If there is a character that can reasonably be in the game, chances are Boon has been asked about it. In fact, Boon was even asked to familiarize himself with the game.
According to the series̵
“I think it would be when they asked” Why don’t you put Ed Boon as a fighter in the game? “I never understood why they would ask it. It’s such a strange question,” Boon said when asked about the strangest grade request he’s ever received. “And I do not think that will ever happen either. I do not want people to come up with ways to cut their heads off.”
When he spoke to FestiGame (via Event Hubs), Boon was asked if he would change his mind about the game’s 30th anniversary in 2022, and as you would expect, he told the interviewer not to do anything about it.
Of course, Boon is, in many ways, as important to the series as any character, and a faithfully recreated Ed Boon in Mortal Kombat would probably be a big hit with fans, but Boon’s reservations make sense. Watching Jax break his spine with a crushing kick or Sub-Zero freeze his head off is probably not a pleasant experience.
Mortal Kombat 11 is available via PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, Nintendo Switch, Google Stadium and PC. One of the sounds of it, if it gets more DLC characters, none of them will be Ed Boon.
