Today, when a series of fighting games are announced, a leak inevitably follows, often revealing information about the character list or a surprise that the developer should uncover later. Mostly these leaks are also a fake.
Mortal Kombat is no different. The serial co-creator Ed Boon has been dealing with such things for years. According to GoNintendo, there is a rumor that the character list of the recently revealed Mortal Kombat 11 has already been leaked. Sure, some of the characters on the list may appear in the game, but at this point there is no material evidence. To combat this, Ed called the rumor and told the person who had informed him that the same tweet should appear after the actual squad had been revealed:
