Is RoboCop Going To Make A Guest Appearance In Mortal Kombat 11?

After a slightly wobbly couple of years in the early days of 3D graphics, the Mortal Kombat series has carved out its own space in the fighting game market with a series of glossy, gory and most of all fun games. Coming soon is Mortal Kombat 11, which looks like it's going to be the best instalment to date and offer up the bone-crunchin', blood-spurtin', face-tearin' action we all secretly crave. Now it sounds like the future of law enforcement might be making the trek to the Netherrealm - as series co-creator Ed Boon tweeted in response to an announcement about the Let It Be documentary "I'd watch that for a dollar!! #RobocopConfirmed".

After a slightly wobbly couple of years in the early days of 3D graphics, the Mortal Kombat series has carved out its own space in the fighting game market with a handful of glossy, gory and most of all, fun games. Coming soon is Mortal Kombat 11, which looks like it’s going to be the best installment to date and offer up the bone-crunchin,’ blood-spurtin,’ face-tearin’ action we all secretly crave.

Not only that, but it sounds like the future of law enforcement might be making the trek to the Netherrealm, as series co-creator Ed Boon tweeted in response to an announcement about the Let It Be documentary: I’d watch that for a dollar!! #RobocopConfirmed

Now, there’s a chance that he might just be really excited about The Beatlesbut having RoboCop in Mortal Kombat makes a weird amount of sense. Over the last couple of entries, the series has become known for its guest characters, with Jason Voorhees, the Alien, the Predator, Leatherface and Freddy Krueger all turning up to show Sub Zero and crew what true fear’s like. One thing these guests all have in common is that they’re broadly associated with the 1980s (even if they didn’t actually debut in that decade, they certainly had multiple sequels during it).

On top of that, RoboCop‘s a fairly gory and violent film, which would make his powerful fighting style a nice fit for the franchise. Perhaps even more notably is that there are already a couple of cyborgs in the MK universe, like the robot-armed Jax.

Even if Robo doesn’t make it in, fans still have some excellent suggestions for who should. Two of the best are the Toxic Avenger (who I’m guessing can’t be that expensive to license) and, coolest of all, Judge Dredd. But perhaps the weirdest might be the most requested, as there’s an ongoing fan campaign to get Shaggy from Scooby-Doo in the game. We kid you not.

Mortal Kombat 11 releases on April 23rd on PS4, Xbox One, Switch and PC.
