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.
