The creative exposes the way the team decides which characters return and which take a break.
Ed Boon, leader of NetherRealm Studios, has explained to Game Informer magazine how they decide which characters to return for the Mortal Kombat installments and the key reason why Fujin has been chosen to return to the series with Mortal. Kombat 11: Aftermath.
As Boon remembers, they have been creating a huge character template over the years, they have added about 80 characters to mortal Kombat “, something that few fighting series can say due to the number of installments in the series and the traditional freedom that the team has been granted to add or delete characters.
“The reason we have added Fujin is that he had not been in a game for a long time. The truth is that I think there will be many players who wonder who Fujin is. If we just work with Mileena, Kitana, Jade, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Rain and, you know, those characters, everything would stagnate after a while, “Boon said.
“We have to give the characters a break once in a while. So when they come back, it’s a big thing,” he argues. “Fujin is a character that our designers used to tell us that they could do something really amazing by using the wind, running in the wind and the sword. When the designers tell you that they can do something unique in terms of gameplay, that’s something that has a lot of weight in deciding who should return. ”
In addition to Fujin, Sheeva, and an extraordinary guest will be added: Robocop.
We remind you that the expansion and the update that will bring with it (which will include, for free for all players, Stage Fatalities and Friendships) will be available from next May 26 at 9:00 p.m., pacific standard time. Of course, on PC and Stadia will not be released until 12:00 that same day.
Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath will be priced at $39.99, and, in addition to the new Story Mode, it will allow us to control Robocop (played by Peter Weller himself), Fujin and Sheeva. Of course, if we want to get hold of everything, including the expansion, the base game and its first Season Pass, the so-called Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath Kollection will also be on sale in physical format, although its launch will not take place until June 16, so we will have to wait a little longer if interested in getting this complete pack with all its contents.
