Mortal Kombat 1 Could Also Include Conan the Barbarian as Guest Character – Rumour

In addition to the previously-rumoured Pacemaker and Homelander, the fighting title could also feature Conan the Barbarian as a DLC character.

It’s looking increasingly likely that NetherRealm Studios is going to unveil the next Mortal Kombat game soon, and at this point, it’s looking equally likely that it’s going to be a reboot. That’s what the developer’s own teases have strongly suggested, while recent leaks have also claimed that the game will indeed reset the clock, so to speak, and be called Mortal Kombat 1.

Alongside that, recently, journalist Jez Corden claimed that DC’s Peacemaker and The Boys’ Homelander will both be featured as post-launch DLC guest characters for the game, and speaking recently on the Xbox Two podcast, he followed up on that and revealed another potential guest character. According to Corden, Conan the Barbarian might also be included in Mortal Kombat 1’s character pass, though whether or not it’ll be Arnold Schwarzenegger’s version or the book version remains to be seen.

Leaks have claimed that Mortal Kombat 1 will be revealed in the coming days, so it’s possible that we’ll have more official details on the game in the near future. A PlayStation Showcase is allegedly set for the week of May 25, so that’s something Mortal Kombat fans will want to keep an eye on.
