Mortal Kombat has 26 characters, DLC in the pipeline

Warner Bros’ new Mortal Kombat game looks set to include a meaty 26 playable fighters, if a screenshot of the game’s character selection screen is anything to go by.

Among the brawlers confirmed for the 2011 reboot include veteran fighters Scorpion, Johnny Cage, Sector, Reptile, Milleena, Sub-Zero, Kung Lao and Night Wolf. Furthermore, it looks like downloadable content is also on the cards, with a ‘DLC’ button spotted at the bottom right of the menu.

Mortal Kombat is due for release next year on PS3 and 360. Stay tuned for more news on the game as it breaks.
