I prefer new Jade tbh. I like the warrior look as apposed to stripper.
Yeah it makes more sense, there are a few posters in MK forums who are pissed about it though, they liked the sexy costumes. Personally I can see where some may say they've kind of gone a bit far in the opposite direction but NRS brought this on themselves for going so far the other way in the past. I see nothing wrong with showing some leg etc, they just don't need to go anywhere near as far as they did in MK9.

I dunno. I glanced at some SFV and the personality of the characters could also be seen as a lot of hoping around wasting energy.

The guy commented on MK being slow to distance themselves from the 2D Sprite days, but how natural do Guile's move's like his flip kick look?

Strangely, that actually is the main issue I think for both games. I think even in SF II 2D sprite days, characters did bend elbows more and throw punches in a way trying to mimic martial arts. MK on the other hand was more interested in being a fun gore-fest.

I think this is a style issue unrelated to the Engine version.

Yes, NR could stand to deal with issues like center of gravity and moves, but I don't expect a lot of highly mobile hopping around stances even with Liu Kang. The character personality is handled by the intro dialogues.


EDIT: Also in Liu Kang's case, in the story he is a Revenant, so a more subdued fight stance makes sense. Yes non-Revenant Liu Kang can be be picked, so they made a balanced stance to work for both.

It makes more sense (not that anything needs to make sense in a MK game), but they can definitely show a little bit more skin than a nun.

All the characters have alt outfits anyway so hopefully there's something for everyone. No reason not to.

I could see The Warlock in this game as a guest character, except I'm not sure there is enough of a fan base these days to justify it.

He is a very evil a****** as well as a time traveler and in this game happily serve the Netherrealm. He just seems to kill everyone horribly and enjoy it.


Not likely to happen, but an amusing thought.

Also, male kombatants shirtless or armless shirts, females need to show tits with bikini style or ass bikini style or both. Some characters, such as raiden, gets a pass on this but mostly this dress code should apply in most fighters and definitely in MK.

SO they went from underdress to overdress. What do she keeps in her pockets?

I don't care for her look there, she looks better without the head gear, she does have a cool cold war skin that I posted earlier but it's not yet known if it'll be available in the US, I think that's kind of a sexy look if you can get rid of the mask and hat. I've asked some of the devs on twitter if we can make the head pieces invisible and one of them said yes so unless he misunderstood the question we should be able to see most characters faces if we want although I'm sure Kabal and Noob if he's in will be different.

Ok so they've cleared things up, there is only one reveal which will be the IGN reveal but they'll go in depth with that character tomorrow during the kombat kast.

Today's stream, skip to about 17:00 in for it to actually start. Skip ahead to 49:35 if you want to see his character select animation it's hilarious. They've really nailed the humor/personality of his character.

My only problem is his boring ass costume...
Skip ahead to 10:10 to see his second skin and they show third one a little later in the same video plus they also gave us a render of a 4th.

Looks like they've improved Sonya's face, she looks much better. I know in this pic the face isn't in the exact same position but the nose looks a little smaller and she just looks better all around.

Looks like the base roster leaked today, some character renders. Either it's legit or someone really put a lot of time into faking these pics.

Supposedly the extra slots are 6 for DLC and three for unlockable characters Shang Tsung, Mileena and Shinnok.
