Spawn May Appear in Mortal Kombat X

According to an interview conducted by, Spawn creator Todd McFarlane has confirmed that he gave Mortal Kombat X developers NetherRealm Studios the go-ahead to use his demonic superhero in their upcoming game. This does not confirm that Al Simmons will appear in the next-gen brawler but only indicates that NetherRealm could use the character if they wish to.

Mortal Kombat X Spawn

If true, then this would not be the first time that Spawn has appeared as a guest character in a fighting game. From back in the distant past of the early 2000s, Spawn also appeared in the Xbox version of Soul Calibur 2 as part of a scheme that saw a single unique character appearing exclusively in each of the three console versions of the game. Mortal Kombat is no stranger to guest characters either, as the last iteration of the popular series featured horror genre icon Freddy Krueger. Whether or not this precedent for crossovers means that Spawn will step into the ring with such notables as Raiden or Sub-Zero is still up in the air.

There is also a rumor that Predator will be in the mix as well. Agent Dillon (the character played by Carl Weathers in the original Predator flick) will also make an appearance as well if scuttlebutt is to be believed. The tenth installment in the Mortal Kombat series will launch on April 14, 2015.

My name is Nicole Seraphita and I’m 27. I’ve been gaming since the days of the NES and have owned at least one system from each generation since then. My favorite type of games if most definitely RPGs, with my favorites being titles like Chrono Cross, Persona 4, and Tales of Xillia, though I also sometimes dabble in platforming games, fighting games, and visual novels. When I’m not writing for APGNation or playing games, I enjoy table top and card games, watch anime, and write fiction that I occasionally publish online. I tend to write a lot of Sci-fi and the occasional bit of fantasy, with the often overlooked sub-genre of Biopunk being my favorite. I’ve also written a few visual novels, though only one of them has made it all the way to completion thus far. My current dream is to be able to bring the Monster Girl genre to a western audience.

Have your say!
