Mortal Kombat 11 director reveals a surprising character who was almost a guest fighter

Mortal Kombat 11 director reveals a surprising character who was almost a guest fighter

Unfortunately, this is all Boon divulges. If this changes, we will of course update the story accordingly. In the meantime, don’t expect the character to come to Mortal Kombat 11, as the game is no longer receiving new content.

One of the things people love about Mortal Kombat is the guest characters it adds via DLC. In Mortal Kombat 11, NetherRealm Studios and WB Games added Rambo, Robocop, The Joker, Terminator, and Spawn, and as you would expect, these additions were big hits.


  • NetherRealm Studios founder, creative director, and Mortal Kombat co-creator shared on Twitter longtime PlayStation staple, Sweet Tooth, was once considered to be a guest character.

  • According to a few rumors, NetherRealm Studios is, contrary to popular belief, not working on Injustice 3, but Mortal Kombat 12. This seems unlikely, but if it’s true, then we may see Buffy Summers and Shaggy sooner rather than later.

Sweet Tooth has served as the face of the Twisted Metal series since the first game released back in 1995. Aside from being on the cover of every game, he is one of the only characters to appear in all the mainline games with his weaponized ice cream truck. He’s also found his way into other games, appearing in 2012’s PlayStation All-Stars Battle Royale and 2015’s Rocket League.

Boon shared the information after reports of a new Twisted Metal TV series being in the works, prompting him to share a photo of himself with the series’ proverbial father, David Jaffe. Boon punctuated by adding the crazed clown nearly found himself inserted into Mortal Kombat on multiple occassions, but plans fell through every time.
