Ed Boon explains the approach to the roster for Mortal Kombat 11

Not everyone can make the cut

Mortal Kombat 11 has a lot of fan favorites on its roster, but there are plenty of others that haven't made the cut. Some people might think it's a crap shoot when it comes to character inclusion, but it's actually a process that is taken very seriously.

In an interveiw with Game Informer, Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon opens up about why some characters were chosen this time around, and why others were left sitting out. Check out his full response below.

I think over the years, we have about 80 Mortal Kombat characters in some capacity. The reason we added Fujin was because he hasn't been seen in a game in so long. Quite frankly, I think a decent number of players will be like, "Who's Fujin?" If we just did Mileena, Kitana, Jade, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Rain, you know, all these characters, I think it would get stale after a while. We do need to give characters a rest every once in a while. Then, when they do return, it's a big deal. It's a novelty, and so we're just kind of spreading it. Fujin was one of the things that our designers were like, "Hey, I think we could do something really cool with this character with wind and running on the wind and doing stuff with his sword." When the designers say they could make something really unique with gameplay, that weighs a lot in terms of a decision of who to bring back.

Come quietly or there will be... trouble

RoboCop might seem like an odd choice for the Mortal Kombat universe, but anyone who's seen the original movies knows just how insanely brutal they are. Going back to watch them now really shows just how over-the-top the violence was, and RoboCop is more than willing to continue that tradition in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath. Check out some of the Brutalities the cop of the future has to offer in the video above.

Dead or alive, you're going to look sharp

We already knew that Robocop was going to have a number of skins for players to choose from in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, but it turns out the customization goes way deeper than that. Players will be able to pick from all different kinds of weapon skins as well. You can check out the video above to see a very quick glimpse of the options available.

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath seeing a retail release for Switch...sort of

A bit on the card, a bit to download

If you've been holding out on picking up Mortal Kombat 11 on Switch, you might have a great reason to jump in on the game soon. Retail listings for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection have been spotted, and it's set to launch on June 16th, 2020.

As you might know, Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is the next upcoming DLC expansion for Mortal Kombat 11, which features a new story, more characters, and other goodies. Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection is going to offer all of that content, along with the Mortal Kombat 11 base game, and the first wave of DLC that hit the game. In other words, it's absolutely everything there is to enjoy with Mortal Kombat 11, DLC and all.

There's a bit of a catch though. While this is indeed a retail release and will have a game card, not all of the DLC is going to be on the game card. According to Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment's Twitter support, the game card will have the base game, and the box will include download codes for the DLC. Whether that means ALL the DLC or just the Aftermath DLC remains to be seen. Still though, I'd say it's not a bad deal for MK11 newcomers by any means.

NetherRealm shares a Brutality for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath's Fujin

The winds of change

Earlier in the week, we got a look at a fight intro for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath's Fujin. Today the official Twitter account for Mortal Kombat showed off footage of one of Fujin's Brutalities. Check out the bloody action above.

NetherRealm scanned/interviewed/recorded Peter Weller for RoboCop's inclusion in Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath, skins revealed

I'd buy that for a dollar!

Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is bringing some unique characters with it, but none more surprising that RoboCop, the Future of Law Enforcement himself. NetherRealm made sure to go all-out with their inclusion of RoboCop, and they went right to the source in order to get things right.

In a feature from Brendan George, Lead Character Artist at NetherRealm Studios, we learn that the development team had a chance to meet with Peter Weller to talk all things RoboCop. Weller is the actor who portrayed RoboCop in the original films, so he certainly knows a thing or two about the character! Weller was scanned, recorded, and interviewed throughout the process, making sure every minute detail was captured.

George also reveals that there will be multiple skins for RoboCop in the game. This includes the gray suit from the original film, and the suit with a more blue-ish hue from the sequel. Furthermore, a third option will be included that gives RoboCop a Mortal Kombat 3 Cyber Ninja RoboCop variant. You can see that version in the GIF above.
