Kratos Slashes Into Mortal Kombat

December 8, 2010Written by Ray Conley

Not too long ago, a roster for Mortal Kombat somehow slid its way into the public’s sphere, revealing a few names to expect in the NetherRealm’s lineup. It appears that another unexpected character will be making his first debut in the fighting arena, and he will be bringing the might of Olympus with him.

We’ve recently learned that some people have had the good fortune of getting their hands an early copy of the Official PlayStation Magazine for January. When March rolls around, and Mortal Kombat enters the arena, proud PS3 owners will be rewarded with an exclusive character who is no stranger to the beast of a black console – Kratos. The God of War himself will be fully decked out with unique combat moves, fatalities and his own personalized fight arena to deal a brutal end to his foes.

Unfortunately, the magazine also details that Kratos will not have a story mode available, but that shouldn’t make his character any less of a kombatant. Perhaps we can cross our fingers and hope that a story can be added later as DLC.

If you’d like to know more, pick up a copy of the Official PlayStation Magazine when it comes out later this week. How do you think Kratos will size up against the competition? Would you rather see a different PlayStation character make an appearance? Let us know in the comments below.
