Which Mortal Kombat fighters should join, asks MultiVersus director

As you might imagine, Scorpion and Sub-Zero are the first in line.

Ever since Player First Games announced MultiVersus under the umbrella of publishing giant Warner Bros. Interactive, roster theory-crafting has been at an all-time high. We even have one ourselves! But recently, MultiVersus director Tony Huynh posted a question on Twitter that might imply Mortal Kombat fighters could join the fray.

Much like how Super Smash Bros. Ultimate is Nintendo’s crossover fighting game, MultiVersus plans to become an apex for Warner Bros. properties from Looney Toons to Game of Thrones. Combatants are iconic to their character personalities across different mediums, while their fighting styles remain varied. With NetherRealm being a subsidiary of Warner Bros., it seemed natural to think Mortal Kombat characters could join MultiVersus, but news has been quiet…until now.

Tony Huynh’s Tweet

After the hypothetical yet soft-confirming tweet from Huynh, a list of answers flooded in from fans. Mileena and Jade were a chaotic pair fans commented on, with Sheeva and Tanya being the outliers of the discussion. Of course, without even scratching your head, Scorpion and Sub-Zero were insistent picks to represent the Mortal Kombat franchise.

What about the gore-y stuff?

On the other side of the conversation, fans wondered if Mortal Kombat would be a proper fit for MultiVersus‘ cartoony style. By sacrificing the blood, gore, and grit iconic to the Mortal Kombat characters, most of them might stand out in a way that betrays their image. But then again, seeing Sub-Zero duke it out with Batman could be quite a sight.
