The PlayStation 3 version includes exclusive playable character Kratos, from the God of War series. The image also shows an image of a character fans are calling Cyber Sub-Zero.

Meanwhile, two downloadable characters have been confirmed.

Scans of the May issue of US magazine Gamepro reveals the first two DLC characters, the Lady in Red (known as Scarlet by the Mortal Kombat community), and blind samurai Kenshi from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.

Four-armed monster Kintaro was also rumoured to be a DLC character, although developer NetherRealm Studios has denied this.

The emergence of the DLC characters ahead of the game's release sparked anger from some gamers, but in a tweet Mortal Kombat head honcho Ed Boon said, " DLC characters are NOT on the disc."
