Scooby-Doo, where are you? Not in Mortal Kombat 11 and neither is your pal Shaggy, that’s for sure. NetherRealm Studios has killed some gamers’ dreams by confirming that a Shaggy MK11 character won’t be added any time soon. Or actually, ever.

During the first Kombat Kast since the game was revealed, the developer denied that it was working on adding a Shaggy MK11 character. This crushing news comes after a petition to add a Shaggy MK11 character gained quite a following, garnering over 350 000 signatures. This even prompted Mortal Kombat co-creator and NetherRealm Creative Director, Ed Boon to think that a Shaggy MK11 character would be cool. Or so we thought.

During the Kombat Kast, NetherRealm community manager, Tyler Landsdwon, destroyed the possibility of a Shaggy MK11 character happening, confirming that:
Shaggy will not be in the game, ever, sorry, dead meme!
To make sure that people got the picture, a tribute tweet was sent out, confirming that the idea of a Shaggy MK11 character is dead, simply saying “#RIPShaggy“.
Don’t despair though. Some awesome characters were confirmed during the Kombat Kast, which are sure to delight fans of the violently fun franchise.
Kabal, which the studio teased during the MK11 reveal, has now been officially confirmed for the game. Kabal was first introduced into the Mortal Kombat franchise in 1995 in Mortal Kombat 3.
The fleet-footed Black Dragon enforcer has returned.

Another confirmed character is D’Vorah. This is the second Mortal Kombat game in the franchise which features D’Vorah on the roster. This insectoid character was first debuted in Mortal Kombat X and we’re excited to see her brutal skills in the upcoming game.
Mortal Kombat 11 is set to be released on 23 April 2019 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
