Kratos enters the Mortal Kombat arena

Kratos, the angry, violent, very loud star of the God of War series is preparing to take part in a tournament. What tournament, you ask? Mortal Kombat of course. The Ghost of Sparta is indeed set to appear in the PS3 version of the MK reboot, Official PlayStation Magazine revealed.

It makes perfect sense; Mortal Kombat is all about horrifying fatalities and who does that better than Kratos? He won’t be available in the single-player campaign but will have his very own arena for multiplayer. We’re hoping instead of crying “Athena!” every couple of seconds he’ll shout “MORTAL KKKKKKOMBAT!” whenever he rips an opponent in half.

Mortal Kombat fights its way onto store shelves next year.
