Ed Boon, creator of the Mortal Kombat series, announced that two additional characters will be added to the list of playable characters for the Gamecube version of MK: Deception. Boon wanted to “add something exclusive and special to set it apart” after announcing that there would be delays for the Cube version and no online play. The additions are not the reason for the delay, just extras to make it worth Cube owner’s wait. Boon also stated, “People have always wanted to control the boss characters in MK, and now we are giving them the chance to control two of the biggest, baddest bosses from any MK game”. Shao Kahn and Goro will be the new playable characters up for grab in early 2005. (EuroGamer)
