Mortal Kombat X will be at E3 2014 next week, and NetherRealm Studios’ Ed Boon has confirmed that two brad-new characters will enter the fight during the show.

It follows the opening of Mortal Kombat X pre-orders, along with this new Scorpion art, and if you haven’t seen it yet, make sure you watch the fighter’s reveal trailer.

Today’s news comes from Boon’s own Twitter feed:

Two of his favourite revealed characters? That’s interesting, and may suggest that the newcomers are canned fighters from previous games.

Like Belokk.

We’ll know more next week.

    That’s an odd response. The question was if any completely new creations for fighters will be at E3, and Boon’s reply was to say that two of his new favorites will be at E3. The “new” to that makes it sound a bit like he’s saying they’re old characters that he just now feels are his favorites.

    Anyway, as I said before, I hope Kitana’s in the game. Seeing her at E3 would be a great plus.

    Based on his responses about story (That it won’t exactly be a follow-up to MK9′s), I think it’s safe to say that there will be fully new characters.

    I absolutely agree with Kitana. I hope both she and Mileena return and we see more of their MK5 themed stories (Twin sisters and dilemmas rather than Mileena with a childs brain from MK9).

    It’s Salarta and Erthazus.

    Whoever wins, we lose.

    @The_Red Mileena got the only female character promotion during MK9′s release, which annoyed me because traditionally, Kitana and Mileena are supposed to be paired up as two sides of the same coin in the exact same way Scorpion and Sub-Zero are. It wasn’t “avoid the game” annoying, but it was still annoying nonetheless.

    It also seemed like the reason she got so much promotion was purely because everything about her character has been made sexually suggestive above all else. There’s a lot of fair criticism that all the women are heavily sexualized, but all the other characters still had backstory and traits that got more emphasis in the story than how much skin they show.

    They kinda tried to fix that with the commercials for the Vita version of MK9, where we saw live action versions of Kitana and Mileena fighting each other.
