Mortal Kombat 11 could be seeing the return of 2 classic (klassic?) stages in the near future — at least according to some soundbites found by one Mr. Alucard, a prolific content creator in the Mortal Kombat 11 community. The soundbites in question feature each of Mortal Kombat 11’s announcers announcing 2 stages that were featured in earlier Mortal Kombat games: Dead Pool and Soul Chamber.
Dead Pool had previously made it’s debut in Mortal Kombat II, and was last playable in 2011’s Mortal Kombat. Players fight on a platform that sits atop a lake of acid, which not only makes for a great set piece, but also a great stage fatality. Throughout the series’ lifespan, Dead Pool has featured a stage fatality, something that is notably absent from Mortal Kombat 11. It could be possible that stage fatalities might make their debut in Mortal Kombat 11 with this stage, similar to how Mortal Kombat X didn’t feature stage fatalities until the Kombat Pack 2 update.
Soul Chamber made it’s debut in Mortal Kombat 3, and was last seen in 2011’s Mortal Kombat. Located within Shao Khan’s fortress, players battle inside of a cave featuring a face with an open mouth containing the tormented souls of previous fighters who have fallen in battle.
No release date has been revealed for when these 2 stages might drop, nor has NetherRealm studios confirmed this rumor. Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, Microsoft Windows, and will be coming to Google Stadia at a later date.
