    Disliked MK X so no high hopes for this one. Honestly I think MK place in fighting game pantheon was always that of a more casual game you play for fun. They lost me when they started going more technical,appeasing try-hards who need every single game ever made to have an e-sports scene.

    Rumblings around the campfire that next MK game is officially a reboot. 'Mortal Kombat 1'. Peacemaker and Homelander (from The Boys) as DLC characters...

    Another reboot?! How many alternate timelines do we need? At this point, they'll make Johnny Cage a porn star.

    That could make for some imaginative fatalities.

    Boon said this will not be connected to MK 11's story... But we have Fire God Liu Kang; interesting!

    Absolutely STOKED for this. Graphics looks amazing, and has a completely different aesthetic to the character models, and skins. The cameos are very refreshing to see, and Sub-Zero/Scorpion being brothers is such a cool idea. This may be a day 1 buy for me.

    I don't know... It does look amazing, but it doesn't impress me overall. I'm not completely sold on it. It feels bland and shallow. But that's just me. I guess I'll wait and see.

    I agree, atmosphere/music/overall aesthetic look the same as the previous ones to me...which I was not a fan of. The gameplay and graphics do look amazing.

    If guest characters are returning I hope we get Ash from Evil Dead, Pennywise, Blade and The Mask.

    Pissed that Havik still hasn’t been mentioned but awesome re: Quan Chi and Ermac. Also really interesting how they’re going down the route that Baraka, Mileena and the Tarkatans only look like that because of a disease:

    I was ecstatic about the Ermac announcement. Fans were a tad upset about his face reveal, though.

    I think the three main demands are Havik, Reptile and Sareena. They’ll probably save those for a second download pack or an “Aftermath” style deal.

    This trailer is so fucking filled with deep cut fan service, super exciting. Always kind of like Ashrah so great to see her getting another shot. We get ninja reptile and reptile reptile in a thinly veiled trans coding. Havik, not my favorite but fans have been begging for him for more than a decade. This game is really delivering in the cast.

    Except mummy Ermac. My god.

    ^ Link seems to be broken so I’ll repost.



    This roster is fucking massive. Motaro, Shujinko, General Shao and Sindel. The only one not officially announced yet but confirmed is Reiko.

    Really curious what they’re going to do with Khameleon. She was exclusive to the N64 version of MK Trilogy. Apparently from the same race as Syzoth (Reptile).

    Would be cool if they end up including Nitara. And Kintaro and Sheeva.

    At this rate the whole Order and Chaos realms will be explored. The origin of the aforementioned Reptile/Khameleon race. The whole Reiko/Shao thing. Just when we thought MK11 was massive, they went massiver.

    I’m glad there are not really many kids (Cassie, etc).
