On final evening’s Kombat Kast, which additionally noticed the reveal of returning fighter Kabal, host and neighborhood supervisor Tyler Lansdown confronted the hearsay head-on. “Shaggy is not going to be within the recreation in any respect, ever,” acknowledged Lansdown. “Sorry. Lifeless meme. No Shaggy in Mortal Kombat. That’s your official first de-confirmation.”

I personally actually have not purchased into the sudden web obsession with the Shaggy character, famously voiced by Casey Kasem for many years. This is likely to be as a result of he instinctively jogs my memory of the autobiography of Dustin Diamond – Saved by the Bell’s Screech – who was obsessed with being forged because the baggy-pantsed hippie.
