The coming months will be full of releases, and in September one of the most anticipated titles will be Mortal Kombat 1. Developed by Netherrealm Studios, the fighting franchise remains one of the most popular in the industry, and for a few years now has become the field of dreaming up some pretty crazy crossovers. We’ve seen everything from horror characters to 80′s movie heroes and now some not-so-heroic superheroes.
Dr. Disrespect is ready for Mortal Kombat
While this is a dream, streamer Dr. Disrespect has it all planned out in case he ever gets the call to be included in an upcoming Mortal Kombat title. During a stream, Dr. Disrespect was watching the recently released trailer at Gamescom, where he received the comment “Can we include Doc in this?” which started the topic of his inclusion in the fighting game, even commenting on what his Fatality would look like.
“The flip phone comes out, I get on and I say… it could be anything, whatever that line is we’ll finesse that line, and then right there I do a backflip in slow motion and while I’m doing a backflip my Lamborghini comes through at 190mph right underneath me and just goes right through the guy so fast that it rips him apart in 50 million pieces. Then I land perfectly and I get another call and say ‘Yeah let’s sign the deal’ or something.”
While it’s unlikely that we’ll see Dr. Disrespect in Mortal Kombat 1, there’s no denying that he’s made video game appearances before, most recently in NBA 2K22.
Mortal Kombat 1 already has its list of guest characters
For now, Dr. Disrespect will have to wait. As it has been a tradition for some past installments, Mortal Kombat 1 will not be left behind and within its DLC characters will have the arrival of some external characters to the world of this franchise. Along with Quan Chi, Ermac, and Takeda, we will have the arrival of “super heroes” with Omni Man, Peacemaker, and Homelander.
Remember that Mortal Kombat 1 is scheduled for release on September 19, 2023. for PS5, Xbox Series X|S, PC, and Nintendo Switch. We recently had the opportunity to play the new Invasion mode at Gamescom 2023 and learn a little more about the story behind this reboot.
