"The Science of Mortal Kombat" video series launching Feb. 18th, 2019, will dissect Mortal Kombat 11 fatalities and more

Sub-Zero, Scorpion, and Skarlet are some of the deadliest warriors in video game history, but how would they stand up in a fight to the death with the laws of physics? Kyle Hill and his experts, including Daniel Cormier and CM Punk, will test fatalities, brutalities, and realities seen in Mortal Kombat 11.

This might be one heck of an interesting series. Obviously all Mortal Kombat games are over the top, but Mortal Kombat 11 really takes things to a new level. Bringing any of these insane moves into the real world would spell instant death for anyone. Getting a look behind the science of all that trauma could certainly be entertaining!

IGN Video - 6 Exciting Mortal Kombat 11 Game Changers

Mortal Kombat 11 feels incredibly different from previous entries in exciting ways. Here are 6 complete game changers that have us hyped.

RUMOR - John Cena is causing speculation that he'll be playing Stryker in Mortal Kombat 11

There's a bit of backstory to all this, so please give me a bit to explain. I promise it'll all make sense at the end!

Bosslogic is an artist that has been sharing some interesting Mortal Kombat art lately. Bosslogic has been imagining Mortal Kombat characters portrayed as celebrities. He's had a number of interesting choices along the way, one of which was John Cena. Bosslogic created a piece of art showcasing Cena in the role of Stryker, to which Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon responded by retweeting/saying it was good casting. Everyone thought that was the end of it, and we moved on.

Here's where things get interesting. As you can see above, John Cena has posted another piece of art of him as Stryker. This is a different piece of art from what Bosslogic did. For those who don't know, Cena loves posting up random/cryptic images on his Instagram account. These pictures always apply to something going on in his life, or with people in general. With the posting of this image, either Cena is aware of the chatter from fans about Bosslogic's artwork, or there's something more going on here.

Now let's look back on a comment Ed Boon made a few weeks back about characters in Mortal Kombat 11.

"Our faces, our actors -- we find, you know, real people to scan their entire face. It's not a 3D model, you know sculpting a nose, sculpting a face, stuff like that, it's actually real people. And we have -- I'll tell you this -- we have a huge, huge surprise coming up for a face you're going to see in Mortal Kombat."

Now some might think this pertains to Ronda Rousey, as she was revealed as the voice actor for Sonya Blade. The thing is, that's all that she's providing. A quick look at the character model for Blade shows that Rousey's likeness was not used in-game. That means we're still waiting on the reveal of that 'huge, huge surprise.' With all this evidence floating around, I'm putting my money on Cena!

RUMOR - Another round of Steam achievements for Mortal Kombat 11 may have leaked more characters

Yesterday we featured a story about Mortal Kombat 11's achievements on Steam. Dataminers were digging through data and found multiple achievement mentions for the game, and the files associated with those mentions included character names. The thing is, the full character names weren't mentioned, as the files only had the first three letters. Obviously, those three letters can be used to surmise some of the characters appearing in game, but others are too short to tell.

Since yesterday's data dump, we have yet another round of potential characters. We'll give you the three-letter names from the files, as well as the guesses as to who they could be. We'll place these after the jump just incase people are trying to avoid spoilers.
