Rumor: Kratos and partial roster for Mortal Kombat 9


[UPDATE] According to David Jaffe's twitter -- "LOVE that Kratos is in the new MK. So bummed he's not in the story portion. Heard about it from Ed at E3 this year and had to keep super mum on it but man, fucking LOVE it. He totally fits in that world.I shit you not- on some level I feel like all the characters I work on are alive and that I have a relationship with them and I can tell you, if I know Kratos- and I do!- he's fucking LOVING his time in the MK Universe. I bet he makes a shit ton of friends there. He should pull Zeus in and fucking leave his ass there!"

Is that confirmation, or is Jaffe just goofin'?

[Original Story] Rumors are pouring in, videos are being take down from YouTube, and people are freaking out. You know what that means. Rumored info leak time!

First up is the report that Kratos will be a playable character in the PS3 version of Mortal Kombat. No word yet on if the Xbox 360 version is getting a character exclusive as well, but I would not be surprised to see Marcus Fenix, Master Chief, or some other 360-exclusive tough guy getting his invite to the Kombat parade.

The other news concerns a list of confirmed characters for the game, including Ermac, Goro, Kabal, Noob Saibot, Quan Chi, Shang Tsung, Sindel, Smoke, and Stryker. The list was garnered from some sound files (heard above) that were reportedly snagged from the Mortal Kombat 9 website, though they're since been removed.

Sadly, none of this info can be confirmed as of right now, but the second this info is either made official or debunked ( or re-debunked), we'll be sure to tell you about it.
