Original story below:

Ever the one for hints, Ed Boon co-creator of the Mortal Kombat games recently sent out another tweet that could possibly be hinting at the next fighter to join MKX’s roster.

 

Here’s his tweet about a “smoked” ham being sold at Walmart.

 

Many fans are now assuming that Sub-Zero’s fellow Lin Kuei clan member and close friend Smoke, will be making a return. Though knowing Boon, it might not be that easy. Just last month he sent out a tweet saying, “Beyonce vs Freddy Mercury. I’m sure a somewhat JADED comparison, but entertaining nonetheless…”

This lead to the speculation that Jade would make a return as well, but it turned out to be a case of classic misdirection as the sorcerer Quan Chi was revealed.  His magic spells are of a green color after all.

Boon also sent out another tweet, this time of two men posing in motion capture suits with the caption “???? Wins …. Fatality! #MKX #MotionCapture”.

 

The scene bares a striking resemblance to one of the special moves of the blind swordsman Kenshi. The gentleman on the left is clearly mo-capping as a character who uses telekinesis and Kenshi possess psychokinetic powers that allows him to throw his opponents around like rag dolls.

So will two make a return? Stay tuned to RGN to find out once they are revealed.
