A Mortal Kombat 11 fan has been editing Dante from Dante’s Inferno into the game as a guest character, and it works really well!
A lot of you probably don’t remember Dante’s Inferno, and that’s fine. Not every third-person action game with a Satanic theme need be remembered, even if this one did have some particularly interesting takes on Hell, demons, and the great works of a deceased Venetian poet.
Some considered Dante’s Inferno to be EA’s response to the God of War phenomenon that was sweeping the console market in the late 2000s. And those people would probably be right as there was a lot of God of War influencing the design of Dante, from its general atmosphere to the third-person action to the extremely unique and identifiable armament given to Dante (which was a scythe, in case you were wondering).
Dante got some fare to good reviews at its release back in 2010, and then faded from memory as many games do. Except for the memory of one Mortal Kombat fan who rightly believes that Dante would make an excellent guest character in Mortal Kombat 11.
Reddit user NadoKahn has been posting some edited pics to the Mortal Kombat subreddit featuring Dante as he talks smack to some of MK11’s more Hellish characters. His first two pics had him riffing on Shao Kahn and Noob Saibot, with his later two photo mashups having him take on Spawn. Since Dante’s journey involves him fighting his way through Hell in order to save his girlfriend from Lucifer himself, Spawn makes a particularly great enemy for Dante to verbally rip into.
With four fake intros down, NadoKahn has a few characters left that would make great Dante rivals, including another Hell-reject in Scorpion as well as Shang Tsung, who regularly does dark magic involving the underworld.
Sadly, the odds of NetherRealm studios getting in with EA to bring Dante over to Mortal Kombat 11 seems extremely unlikely, but then again, we said the same thing about Ash from Evil Dead.
