Goro and Jade heading to Mortal Kombat

Still no plans for a 360-exclusive character.

Jade and Goro have both made it into this year's version of Mortal Kombat, according to a preview in US magazine Game Informer.

Goro is seen prancing around his Goro's Lair stage (thanks Mortal Kombat Online, via VG247), while Jade apparently has her trademark boomerang projectile and is trussed up in a mixture of her Ultimate MK3 and MK Deception outfits. Snazzy.

That means we now know of 18 playable characters in the NetherRealm-developed beat-'em-up revamp – as well as Goro and Jade, we're to expect Scorpion, Sonya Blade, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Shao Khan, Kitana, Johnny Cage, Kung Lao, Jax, Reptile, Mileena, Cyrax, Ermac, Nightwolf, Sektor and Sindel.

Developer Ed Boon reportedly said there are no current plans for an Xbox 360-exclusive character (the PlayStation 3 has Kratos as a 19th character, unveiled during December's VGAs). However, he mentioned downloadable content in his answer, suggesting that we may see more characters introduced that way.

Mortal Kombat is due out for PS3 and Xbox 360 this April.
