However, other fans were still hopeful that Starr might still appear in Mortal Kombat 1, saying it was possible people misinterpreted his one-word answer.

“People keep pestering him for answers on this. I wouldn’t be surprised if he said no just to stop the questions.”

This sad news for fans came just after the announcement that DLC character Tremor, the earth-wielding ninja, would be releasing on November 16, confusing players since he arrives only a week after Omni-Man.
