Gamers were shocked today by the announcement that the forthcoming Mortal Kombat 1 would introduce the violent, blue spiky shell made famous in the Mario Kart franchise, sources have confirmed.
“Oh my god, that is so sick and twisted,” said local gamer George York, after seeing the latest Mortal Kombat 1 trailer, which featured an ominous image of the blue spiky shell at the end. “I’ve loved this series since I was a kid, and it’s always so exciting to see what fresh new ways they are going to find to punish and torture your opponent. And god damn, a blue shell is just about the most horrific thing they could’ve put in here. No idea exactly how it’s going to work in Mortal Kombat, but I’m sure it’ll piss everybody off.”
The creator of Mortal Kombat admitted that the new addition was one the team had long requested to make.
“We’ve been wanting to include the blue shell from Mario Kart for a long time actually,” said Ed Boon, creator of the iconic fighting game franchise. “And it just didn’t really fit in with all of the storyline things we were doing with the last series. So, now that we’re restarting the timeline, we can incorporate some things we’ve always wanted, like the blue spiky shell and an exciting new fishing minigame!”
As of press time, Boon also confirmed that Waluigi would be a selectable character in the upcoming Mortal Kombat 1.
