Fighting followers need one explicit visitor character in Mortal Kombat 11: Shaggy. Yes, Scooby-Doo’s Shaggy. If you’ve blinked lately, you may’ve missed the truth that Shaggy’s Eldritch information and unbelievable combating prowess are actually a Chuck Norris-like meme, and consequently a petition for him to hitch the Mortal Kombat 11 roster is rapidly approaching 100,000 signatures.
The present depend is 89,769, and I’ve already needed to revise this line a number of occasions whereas scripting this story. The final objective is to succeed in 150,000, although it’s unclear what that particular quantity is supposed to perform. Let’s be actual – jokey Change.org signatures don’t essentially translate into precise DLC character gross sales.
It’s not altogether not possible. Scooby-Doo seems to be beneath the Warner Bros. umbrella, as is Mortal Kombat developer NetherRealm. The similar set of handy possession led to common crossovers between MK and DC, and former NetherRealm company have gone as bizarre because the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles showing up in Injustice 2. Still, I’ve to assume WB could be slightly reticent to let a beloved kids’s character be eviscerated in a gross assortment of MK fatalities.
MK creator and director Ed Boon is up on the memes, as you may anticipate.

But Boon additionally tweeted a noncommittal “let me know how that works out for you” to at least one fan asking about Shaggy. (At least it’s higher than a easy “nope.”)
Get prepared: Round one begins within the best fighting games on PC
Mortal Kombat 11 is ready to launch on April 23, although it’s unclear precisely how lengthy we’ll have to attend for additional DLC reveals. Hope springs everlasting for Shaggy within the meantime.
