Updated: Kombat Kast airs tomorrow, will show new '-ality'; Boon further hints at Spawn, and has Mortal Kombat X gone gold?

Posted by Steven 'Dreamking23' Chavez • March 18, 2015 at 3:14 p.m. PDT

Updated: Ed Boon just sent out a tweet saying that the Kombat Kast is indeed scheduled for tomorrow. We can also expect to see another new "-ality."

Eariler: NetherRealm Studios' own Ed Boon has been very active on Twitter these past couple of days. Whether it be his own original tweets or simply addressing questions from followers, Boon has said some interesting things over on social media.

One of the first things you may have noticed in this story is the gold Mortal Kombat X logo in our banner. That wasn't a result of our awesome image editing skills, but rather, Ed Boon's new Twitter profile picture. This is leading his Twitter followers (us included) to believe that Mortal Kombat X has gone gold (meaning development is complete and the game is ready to ship out to retailers). With the game's release date now less than a month away, we feel that's a fair assumption to make.

If that news isn't good enough for you, though, you may be happy to hear that more reveals could potentially be dropping as early as tomorrow.

According to Boon, he and his team are currently attempting to prepare another Kombat Kast stream for tomorrow. During the last broadcast, it was mentioned that the next stream would show off the three newest characters in the Mortal Kombat universe: Jacqueline Briggs, Takashi Takeda, and Kung Jin, who are the daughter of Jax, the son of Kenshi, and a descendant of Kung Lao, respectively.

Perhaps we'll see the MK spawn in action tomorrow. And speaking of spawn...

When Injustice: Gods Among Us -- NetherRealm Studios' previous fighting title -- was first announced, fans heavily requested/speculated Spawn's inclusion as a playable character in the game. Not much has changed since the reveal of Mortal Kombat X, as fans are still guessing that Al Simmons will finally make his debut in the world of NRS.

This time around, the probability of Spawn being in Mortal Kombat X may be greater than ever. We've already seen the character's creator himself -- Todd McFarlane -- state in an interview that NRS has permission to use Spawn in some of their upcoming games. Not only that, but MKX's Kombat Pack is set to include guest characters, meaning that there is definitely potential for us to see another fighter not directly connected to the Mortal Kombat universe make an appearance. Hell! We've already got Jason Voorhees!

But the most recent hint at Spawn in MKX comes from the big kahuna himself. Ed Boon tweeted out a picture of a special Mortal Kombat Blu-ray collection that includes 3 MK films along with a very suspicious fourth movie... We've seen enough krytpic tweets from Boon by now to know that he typically doesn't post peculiar pictures like this if they don't have some meaning behind it. We do hope that Spawn is a guest character this time around, and apparently so do you (our readers)!

Mortal Kombat X is set to be released on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC on April 14, 2015.

That's weird. We got Jason and Ed Boon has been hinting BOTH Predator and Spawn. 3 Guest characters? Perhaps one of them will be delayed to the second batch of DLC characters... or maybe one of them is not a DLC?

If Spawn is in the actual release, and not DLC, I will literally die from happiness... or figuratively. Who can say.

I'm skeptical about the new -ality. It's most likely referring to the new Faction Fatalities, but I would give my left nut to finally see Animalities making a comeback. Also if Spawn is in the game via dlc or in the main game, this will become my favorite MK, by a long shot! And I need my Reiko reveal....NAO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Kombat Kast is so corny. They need a better crew. Capcom better take notes. Iron Galaxy got the better stream right now.

With what Reiko's up to in the mkx comic, he has to be playable right? i sure do hope so. That new -ality better be done by Takeda.

PurelyUnique928 said on March 18, 2015 at 5:07 p.m.

Mark my words if Spawn gets confirmed I drop all MK characters for a long while to practice solely with Spawn...

They're going to show Takeda and Mileena tomorrow. It's gonna be awesome.

Looks like it'll be the second game without Liu Kang.

I wish they'd put Meat in this game. There would be alot of room to get creative with him like using his own ripped off body parts for attacks or something like that..

#24
bwinches said on March 18, 2015 at 6:07 p.m.

One has to wonder... which character might have a grudge to settle with Raiden? I don't think Shinnok is the big baddie of this game. However, I don't know crap.

#25
OkieScrub said on March 18, 2015 at 6:08 p.m.

With DOA screwing over PC users, and Tekken 7 not coming to PC. This is the game im going to get.

theshredder39 said on March 18, 2015 at 6:09 p.m.

Spawn, Preditor and Jason all in one video game, that's pretty nuts.

#27
theshredder39 said on March 18, 2015 at 6:27 p.m.

Glad to know I'm not the only Meat fan. I liked the idea of his attacks especially his special where he takes his head off and rolls it along the ground like a bowling ball, unfortunately I don't think it's likely that he'll come back anytime soon, I'd love to be wrong though.

Boons trolling us hard and I doubt spawn will make it in MKX. Got to keep my expectations low so I won't be disappointed if doesn't make the cut.

I think that Liu Kang is the final boss because we have seen everything but no hints on Liu Kang

Is it really out the roster or is he going to be in? That is the question

You already know. Lol

If Spawn is truly in the game then please make him a bonus character. Don't wan't a guest filling up an actual slot for a proper MK character.
Spaces are limited!

Probably Faction kills i'd say although i am hoping for something new and creative. Animalities would have been amazing but that's not happening.

I personally don't think Shinnok will be the last boss, hopefully Liu Kang has gone now to the dark side,also have they said the DLC characters and guest characters will be part of the story?
