Who is watching the news we publish here on Voxel certainly saw the design of a version of Mortal Kombat with celebrities generated by Mid Journey, an artificial intelligence tool. After the initial version and a second round, behold, we reached the Celebrity Kombat 3.
In a video posted on the social network X (formerly known as Twitter), we have the chance to see some more famous names ported to the character selection screen from Mortal Kombat, like Neymar, Pelé and even Jesus Christ.
A curious fact is that the message below was published by Ed Boon, creator of Mortal Kombat, who already he had even given his blessing to the project. And this time, apparently. ehe really enjoyed seeing John Lennon and Prince among the optionsin addition to itself:

Any scenario that groups me with John Lennon & Prince is fine with me! ??????pic.twitter.com/LkVb7tQZXG

Another important point is that the video above even allows you to see a small part of the fight between Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg. Incidentally, it is interesting to note that the second would be able to use a move that would send him to the world of virtual reality, with the right to an imaginary sword to hit the opponent.
The process of creating a Mortal Kombat with famous already gave the chance to see several names of weight among the options to choose from. The first video, for example, featured Barack Obama, Albert Einstein, Beyoncé, Madre Teresa, Marilyn Monroe, William Shakespeare e Joe Biden.
In the second, the highlights are for Will Smith, Freddie Mercury, David Bowie, Mike Tyson, Steve Jobs, Lionel Messi, Emma Watson, Kim Kardashian, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Volodymyr Zelensky e Chuck Norris.
It is worth remembering, however, that it is very difficult for such a project to officially come to life. Mortal Kombat 1 is on the way with its own roster of guest fighters, including Homelander, Peacemaker and Omni-Man, starting September 19 with versions for PC, PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S and Nintendo Switch.
Indie game inspired by Celebrity Kombat
While a game with realistic graphics and made by NetherRealm with celebrities hitting each other shouldn’t happen, those responsible for Celebrity Kombat have given life to an indie game inspired by the joke. The gameplay that appears at the end of the video post is part of a game already available on Steam.
Bringing basic graphics, the game is still in development and can be purchased for values around R$ 23 at Valve’s store. As expected, the title is basically based on the meme, putting public figures to fight.
