What has six arms and throws one mean boomerang? Mortal Kombat's Jade and Goro, of course! The pallet-swapped assassin and perennial boss character will be joining the roster of this year's Mortal Kombat reboot, according to the latest issue of Game Informer (via Mortal Kombat Online).

Reportedly, NetherRealm's Ed Boon also notes in the magazine that the developer is considering adding an exclusive character to the Xbox 360 version of the game. This comes in the wake of news that God of War's Kratos will be available exclusively in the PlayStation 3 version. Our vote: Marcus Fenix, because he's over-the-top enough for Mortal Kombat and he cuts people in half like every five seconds.
