Mortal Kombat 11 director Ed Boon has shared some of the characters that he reportedly wanted to add as guests in the game, including John Wick.
As reported by GameRant via Brazilian publication Meu PS4, Mortal Kombat 11 director and series creator Ed Boon had some interesting choices to use as a guest character in the game. There are usually different guest characters in a Mortal Kombat game which are released post-launch as part of the Kombat Pack.
The last couple of games had Jason Voorhees, Freddy, and Alien as playable characters, so there has been a wide range of characters used from the various forms of entertainment including the series itself. Ed Boon had some different characters in mind to use as potential DLC for Mortal Kombat 11.
The three guest characters that Ed Boon wanted to add in the game were rather unconventional. First up, he wanted to add someone from the Street Fighter series, which is another iconic fighting game franchise. Perhaps, a good candidate here could be Akuma which has been in various crossovers.
The second and third guest characters that Ed Boon picked both centered on a single actor, Keanu Reeves. Ed Boon wanted to add John Wick played by Keanu Reeves, or Neo from The Matrix, as one of the playable DLC characters to Mortal Kombat 11. Of course, both of these didn’t pan out in the actual game, or perhaps something can be worked out in the future.
The entire roster for the first Kombat Pack of Mortal Kombat 11 has been revealed and it doesn’t contain Ash from Evil Dead, Fujin or Sheeva, which are rumored to be part of another Kombat Pack and were also discovered through datamine of the game files. It is possible that more guest characters can join the game in the future.
