Mortal Kombat 11 is Coming – No Sign of Smoke, Yet

I’m an OK Mortal Kombat fan. I’ve been playing it all these years and there’s little doubt that I’ll eventually dive into Mortal Kombat 11 when it comes out in a couple months. But I’ll admit that my interest in the game revolves almost solely around whether or not my favorite character Smoke appears in the game.

I’ve written about this before on the blog: Smoke is my all-time favorite video game character. The perfect storm of unlocking his fight in MK2 and being generally interested in all of the palette-swapped ninjas (my future band name) turned me onto the gray one, and then I really dig the story that he was Sub-Zero’s best friend, who was betrayed by their clan and turned into a robot assassin, only to still have a good soul trapped inside. There have been a lot of ups and downs with Smoke over the years, but he’s still my boy.

I’m also a big fan of Mortal Kombat lore. I once bought the guidebook to Mortal Kombat Trilogy just to have an encyclopedia of characters at the ready. I didn’t own a video game console at the time, let along an actual copy of Mortal Kombat Trilogy. It was just fun like that.

Here’s hoping Mortal Kombat 11 is good! And that it eventually includes Smoke in some capacity.

  1. I can see how much the graphics has improved from the first game to the latest installment of the Mortal Kombat series. The Power Rangers: Battle for the Grid game for Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One is also coming this April. What a coincidence. Anyway, with regards to Smoke still missing in action, I hope I’m wrong but could he be only available as a part of a DLC?

    • He could definitely be DLC. But they haven’t made the full roster announcement yet, only a portion of it. So I’m gonna hold out hope that he’s in the main roster. And if not, DLC works for me too!

  2. I’m hoping that human Reptile will be available to play or at least be kustomisable in the latest instalmen​​t. Smoke was my favourtite fighter to play as in MK9 due to his deceptive teleport attacks and pop up combos, I have no doubt he will be available in MK11. Boon knows what the fans want. ​
