Hell Yes. Scorpion in Smash would be bloody epic!
So, I've just heard the announcement of MK11, and going on predictions for the roster made me realize how much of an MK fan I was.
I got almost every game, but as a fighter, it comes behind the likes of Tekken and Street Fighter, a tie between DoA perhaps, but as fighters are my favourite genre, I think MK means a lot.
First encounter with Mortal Kombat was MK Trilogy on the N64. (Nintendo console whoop!)
And, I was partly terrified, and partly curious. (Think I was about 5 or 6 at the time.)
Scorpion always had something cool and mysterious with him, having a skull, and breathed fire. The iconic "GET OVER HERE", and it was just the start of me following the MK games. The next time the series came up on my radar I had grown a bit more up, and bought both Deceptions and Deadly Alliance on the PS2. Followed by Armagedon.
MK 2011 aka 9 was fantastic, probobly my favourite MK game to date.
MKX did not satisfy however ... I got it, but it's only passable. MK11 however, I can't wait.
Hoping for Kabal and Motaro to make a comback. Kabal for the unique gameplay, and Motaro for my nostalgia for Trilogy which was the start for me onto the series.
Fast Forward, MK 11 coming on the Switch makes me hopeful that Scorpion got a decent shot at becoming a playable character, and while it's either him or Sub-Zero (perhaps more family friendly), I think Scorpion represents the series as a whole better than our ice cold warrior.
Therefore, I really hope that Scorpion could make it. Mortal Kombat is undeniably an important piece within Video Game History.
So, don't know why it has not happened earlier, but add me to the support list, sir.
