Super Smash Bros. Ultimate isn’t the only game which has a vocal minority of fans who like to make questionable fighter requests. If you’ve been keeping tabs on Mortal Kombat 11, you may or may not have heard about a fan petition asking NetherRealm Studios to add Shaggy from the Scooby-Doo animation to the game. The Mortal Kombat series’ co-creator Ed Boon even played along for a while, acknowledging Shaggy supporters on his Twitter account.
For anyone who thought there might be a chance of the cartoon character coming to the eleventh entry in the violent and bloody fighting series, think again. During the delayed Kombat Kast, the game’s community manager completely shut down the possibility of this cartoon character – or the rest of the gang – making an appearance in the upcoming release, with this brutal reply:
“Shaggy will not be in the game. At all. Ever. Sorry, dead meme.”
Later on, the official Mortal Kombat 11 Twitter account paid its respects to Shaggy with the following hashtag:
We can’t help but be impressed by the team’s approach to these sorts of requests. They have a laugh and then move on.
Despite Shaggy not making the cut, there are plenty of other fighters to look forward to playing as in MK11. During the same stream, Kabal was officially revealed, after a brief teaser of the character at the big gameplay reveal last month. Take a look at this fighter in action below:
NetherRealm also teased the insectoid fighter D’Vorah would be returning. No information about this character has been shared yet, but you can at least see what she looks like in the latest outing, in the image below:
