A lot of excitement surrounds Mortal Kombat X, especially after the new gameplay, fighting, and characters shown at E3. We’ve gotten to see two returning characters: Scorpion and Sub-Zero. We’ve also seen four new characters: Cassie Cage, Kotal Kahn, Ferra, and D’vorah.

Ed Boon, when asked by fans on Twitter, confirmed that Scorpion and Sub-Zero aren’t the only returning cast members. We don’t know who they’ll be, but we should see some familiar faces.

He also mentioned on Larry “Major Nelson” Hryb’s podcast that Mortal Kombat X will have more new characters than any previous Mortal Kombat game. Yes, there will be more new characters here than there were in the very first Mortal Kombat.

If he means playable characters, Mortal Kombat X will feature more than 7 new additions to the cast. If he counts the non-playable characters from the first game, it’s more than 10. Either way, the wave of new characters plus the promised returning characters means we’ll have quite a sizeable selection.

Who are you hoping to see return, and what types of new characters would you like to see?
