Kratos Joins Mortal Kombat As A PS3 Exclusive

God of War 3

Mortal Kombat's next installment will feature the God of War himself. You read right, Kratos will be a playable character in the upcoming Mortal Kombat game. As you may have guessed, he will be a PS3 exclusive.

Ed Boon is looking to revamp the Moral Kombat series after the lack-luster performance of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. One of the major issues with MK vs DC was the glaring omission of gratuitous violence. I think I speak for everyone when I say that Kratos knows a thing or two about over-the-top gore. Kratos will have his own combat moves, fatalities, and even his own arena.
The official announcement will appear in January's Official PlayStation Magazine. It hits shelves later this week. The article confirms his addition to the game but denies that Kratos will be a playable character in story-mode.
This confirmation is great news for Mortal Kombat fans and even better news for PS3 owners. But it doesn't take much guess-work to wonder if an Xbox 360 exclusive character will be announced too. We've seen this before after all, like with Soul Calibur 4. The PS3 version had Darth Vader as a playable character and the Xbox 360 version had Yoda. Epic's Cliff Bleszinski has already gone on  twitter to toss Clay Carmine's name in the mix. Which Xbox 360 character do you think should join Mortal Kombat?
Look for Mortal Kombat in Spring 2011 for the PS3 and Xbox 360.
