Mortal Kombat 1 Dev Originally Considered Adding The Walking Dead’s Michonne As Guest Fighter

NetherRealm Studios‘ Ed Boon has revealed that the team originally talked with Robert Kirkman about adding Michonne from The Walking Dead as a guest fighter for Mortal Kombat 1.

Speaking on Twitter, Boon revealed that the idea eventually evolved into adding Invincible’s Omni-Man to MK1, but Michonne was originally a possibility. Kirkman is also the creator of Invincible, hence why the team eventually decided on Omni-Man as a guest character.

Coincidentally, before we eventually went with Omniman, the first meeting I had with@RobertKirkman was to talk about the possibility of Michonne being a guest fighter in Mortal Kombat.

Michonne would have been an interesting choice for Mortal Kombat 1 and probably a good fit, as she wields a sword like a number of characters from the series do. Of course, a character from The Walking Dead did make the crossover to one fighting game, with Negan appearing as a guest in Tekken 7 back in early 2019.

Mortal Kombat 1 was released for PS5, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Xbox Series X/S in September 2023, and you can read our full verdict here.
