Best Buy Remove Liu Kang & Sub-Zero From MK11 Listing
12/14/2018 01:15 AM :: Posted at 01:15 AM EST by Mick-Lucifer

A listing on the Best Buy online store has given us the first indication Liu Kang and Sub-Zero may be returning in Mortal Kombat 11! The product listing has since removed any mention of specific characters, but the original info can be seen below:

Retail Retcon: Best Buy originally listed Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, and Raiden for MK11.

As two of the enduring icons of the series, it would come as no surprise that Liu Kang and Sub-Zero would join Raiden and Scorpion on the confirmed list.

Both characters in question featured prominently late in the Mortal Kombat X story mode, where Sub-Zero is Grandmaster of the Lin Kuei clan, and revenant Liu Kang and Kitana have assumed leadership in the Netherrealm. The officially dubbed "Dark Raiden" notably visited the latter pairing in an ominous epilogue, teasing plotlines expected to play out in some fashion through Mortal Kombat 11.

A "time bending story" also lends MK11 to the inclusion of these classic characters, but occasionally embellishments based on prior knowledge get the better of eager retailers. GameStop reportedly included mention of Shang Tsung in in-store pre-release advertisements for Mortal Kombat X.

Along with the removal of character names, the Best Buy listing has also excised anything that could be construed as a specific reference. Allusions to a "return to the Netherrealm", the stakes of a "fight for the future of the realms" and boast of a "state-of-the-art graphics engine" have all been removed from the new copy.

Original Copy:
Return to the Netherrealm and test your might once more in Mortal KOmbat 11 for PlayStation 4. It features a state-of-the-art graphics engine that showcases the heat of battle like never before. A packed roster of legends and contenders, including Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, and Raiden, go head to head in this fight for the future of the realms.

Updated Copy:
Test your might once more in Mortal Kombat 11 for PlayStation 4. A packed roster of legends and newcomers go head to head in the next chapter of this epic saga over 25 years in the making. And a new graphics engine showcases the heat of battle like never before!

Is it all much ado about nothing? Register to speculate about the fate of these characters and more on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum! Special thanks to MK Online User xysion for posting about this story.
