The story starts right were MK9 left off. It just doesn't end there.

MK's timeline has always moved forward.

While normally i'am right there with you. Prereboot's Mortal Kombat had IMO a problem with stuff not changing enough. Which is understandable for a fighting game with characters people want to see stay. But I am glad the nucanon is taking risks like this(just like killing characters off in 9), because the old way of playing it safe didn't do them any favors.

Like every Mortal Kombat game since 2, I'll probably play around with it a bit and then lose interest. I mean, it looks sweet, but it's so hard for me to stop playing Street Fighter and pick up another fighting game.

Those X-Ray moves look brutal, I just sort of wish that characters have more than one this time, because as great as it is to see Noob break someone's back and make them vomit, it kind of got old after the tenth time.

Well i am glad I was linked to this thread and so far it seems odd for Sub Zero.

As in Nucanon at end of MK9 he was turned into a Lin Kunei cyborg and then killed. Now back as human and well still kicking. Yeah in MK death seems to be no big deal, that's the plot point to Scorpion and Johnny Cage. (With Cage, it was a joke.)

Why? It's not like MK has much of a story, and what is there is a convoluted mess that just keeps getting dumber. And it's nice to see some new characters.

In all fairness, we don't actually know who the current Sub Zero is. Whoever it is, it seems unlikely that it's the second Sub Zero.

I love this franchise, and they really should do more with Baraka, that nasty dude from early games who had those terrifying arm blades and vicious-looking jaws.

Mortal Kombat is like the opposite of My Little Pony.

We really need to explore how this game represents 'human focus.'

It's not exactly a rumor.

I believe there is a rain power in one of the different modes so he is referenced. Don't know if it makes any difference on his chances for being playable though.

I really want Sindel.

I really hope he is.. I'd love for the new timeline to have him flip allegiances. Realizing that he should fight for Edenia and freedom instead of for Shao Kahn.. or whatever Kahn is in this one.

I'm a little disappointed that Jade mostly likely won't be playable this time around, but at least her playstyle will live on through Kitana, I guess.

It'll probs be revealed in the game or maybe in the comic book, but I haven't read that.

It's not a "most likely" sadly, in their last showcase on Twitch, they out and out said she wasn't coming back ={ Jade was my fav character so I'm sad ;~; closest thing to Jade's playstyle will be available through Kitana's set "Mournful" where she has Jade's Bo and Boomerang.

Oh well, holding out hope for Sindel or maybe Sheeva, or just maybe Tanya.

Yeaahhhhh... by the end of Mortal Kombat 9, Sindel had pretty much killed everyone, but it seems like they're all back for X. So... I have no idea :confused: But I figured none of them would probably stay dead, because they killed off so many characters. They're adding lots of new characters to the roster for this game but I don't think they'd just ignore all the other more familiar and popular characters, either.

As for Kitana, hopefully they'll explain that!

Bo Rai Cho sucks so much, but I'm sure you're not the only person that wants him. He's such a boring, terrible looking design, and he's such a dumb concept for what he's meant to be. They want to do a cool Drunken Master trainer character? Ok, then just do Bagger So...but don't mix one of those smelly farting type characters with him. He's too dumb for the Bagger So type character he's meant to be, and he isn't as interesting and fun as gross characters like Bacterian (Dragon Ball) and Earthquake (Samurai Shodown).

Almost everyone was dead after the last game, and Sub-Zero was turned into a robot.

The comics do explain why everyone is back from the dead and several other details that will explain the story about the game

there was a war with the netherrealm and it ended with many escaping, scorpion becoming alive again and reviving his clan and characters like Jax and Kung lao returning to life. it also led to Kotal Kahn deposing Melina as ruler of outworld

That clears everything up.

I keep forgetting that the comic is digital first. I'm only getting the print versions because digital comics and I do not get along, for some reason, so I've only read the first two issues.

They're slow with reveals that's for sure which may be due to the comic.

I can see why Takeda, Jacqui, Frost, Erron Black, Sonya, Jax, and the such cannot be revealed yet as it would ruin the tension the comics are trying to sell which is "Anyone can die! ...But Scorpion, Sub-Zero, ect..."

I don't see Frost getting in this game. It already has Sub-Zero, and he has three different styles of play. I would think one of Cassie Cage's styles would be Sonyaish.

Man, it sucks that Jade is really dead. But the whole thing with "Mournful" Kitana is kind of cool. I'm glad they're at least acknowledging that Jade was an important and popular enough character to at least have that.

Also, "klassic" made me laugh. Oh, Mortal Kombat and your love of starting words with "k"...

Sub-Zero and Frost are very different.

Frost also has a new background. She's an Orphan who never knew her parents, she grew up on the streets and self-taught herself to become an MMA fighter to participate in deathmatches to make a living.

They could easily use her Ice powers far differently from Sub-Zero who was always slower than Frost and now she would have a complete MMA fighting style that Sub-Zero lacks. Frost also has a Rivalry with Cassie Cage now and some are speculating that Sonya may "draft" Frost, who's currently in her "Care" after surviving the Deathmatch that Cassie got lucky in, into Special Forces thus giving Frost a Purpose, Family, and Special Forces training to user her Ice powers in new ways.

Which is weird, didn't they say a new reveal every week? I could've sworn I heard something similar to that in a twitch stream or in a forum ot something, though I don't have links to back it up so IDK.

EDIT: actually, I think I may be remembering that wrong, I just hope there is a reveal soon.

That was always something I feared with the different fighting variations for characters in that instead of adding Sonya, Jax and Johnny they just gave their fighting styles to Cassie.

They're both MK ninja characters that use ice projectile moves. They aren't very different at all.

I think Kano already has a grapple/counter style. And Cassie Cage has a style called Brawl that I think might be MMA-ish in style.

Frost didn't use Ice the same way and had her own fighting style.

Frost in the new Timeline has never been Lin Kuei. She's an Ice using MMA fighter now due to MK9 changing events so that Sektor remained Grandmaster MUCH longer due to Kuai Liang dying in MK9 so a recruitment drive never happened thus Frost never sought out the Lin Kuei in this timeline.

Cassie is supposed to have a bit of her parents and then mostly her own style, as the article that I read about it had the developers wanting to not just make her a mixture of her parents fighting style but to have mostly her own style.

And there are already two characters that basically have a MMA style, and one character with three different freezing move styles. I don't see her making it into the game, even if she is in some comic.

I know what you mean. As soon as I saw Cassie I thought, "Oh so Sonya and Johnny Cage aren't going to be in the game." That part really kind of sucks. I didn't know they weren't bringing Jax back either, though :(

Oh boy, Brutalities are back, baby! I always wondered when/if they'd bring them back into one of the newer games. I expected them to be back in MK9 but glad to see they're in MKX. Not that I'm able to actually perform a Brutality, because I've never been able to XD

Only she doesn't really fight like any one of them by themselves. Even if this game didn't have three different styles it's likely wouldn't have made it in because of this new characters that combines them in a different way.

They aren't the same thing as the fatalities at all. I like how they seamlessly mix with the actual gameplay, it's too bad fatalities don't do that.

Really? The story mode in 9 was a mess. Besides the story being pretty stupid, and characters (Raiden) doing stuff that didn't make any sense, it also didn't let you play as everyone in the game...it didn't even let you play as everyone that was playable. The story mode also has weird blind spots, like Sub-Zero going away to do something and coming back as a robot. The idea of a story mode is cool, but the story in MK9 was really really stupid.

Sub Zero didn't go away to do something. He got captured by the Lin Kuei after beating Scorpion. Also the story was pretty simply and easy to understand. Or did you just press the skip button on every cutscene? Also calling time travel and reboots being stupid sounds hilarious over here considering comic books live off them.

Yea, they very clearly showed Sub Zero being captured by the Lin Kuei. Obviously, if you didn't pay attention to the cut scenes (which I loved), you'd be lost.

So yes, really. I enjoyed 9's story. They set out to do a reboot of sorts and we got a solid one. Human Smoke was a fan service. One I very much appreciated. Speaking of which, I am very excited that "scar face" Sub Zero is in X. I loved that costume.

Did you make an account just to tell me that? Yeah, you're right, I was thinking the last time you saw him was when Jax's arms were blown off, but the last time you see him is right after that when dumb dumb Raiden just lets him get taken. You also can't skip the cutscenes in the story mode...guess because you can't skip art.

I didn't say it wasn't easy to understand, I said it was stupid and Raiden did things that didn't make sense. And it being stupid has nothing at all to do with the idea of time travel or being a reboot. It being stupid has to do with all the stupid things that happen in it, how the story seems to be tone deaf, and all the dumb things Raiden does...but that's just from the story aspect of it. As a mode it's dumb because for some reason it doesn't let you play as everyone; guess they just couldn't fit that into the grand vision they had for the story of MK9.

Raiden is such a dummy in MK9 I'm not sure how they're going to redeem him for this game. When I saw Liu Kang's ending I was like: Yeah, you go get that moron Liu Kang. And then I saw Shang Tsung's and I was like: F this game. Don't frame Liu Kang going against this idiot as a heel turn, and don't make one of the big villains a hero to take him down. And yes, these are character specific endings, I know this, and they have nothing to do with why MK9's story mode is dumb.

LOL, no, I did not make an account to tell you that. Don't be so paranoid. I used to be here before the reset and just came back after a year and I just decided to go the gaming section first since I was hoping for some discussion about Arkham Knight (Which is hardly any, btw!).

Other than that, Raiden was pretty easy to understand. Change the past so the future in the opening cutscene doesn't happen. Simple. What more is there to get about Raiden's motivation? He knew he couldn't repeat the previous timeline because it would end with Shao Kahn winning again so he would have to try something new and that would meaning doing things the original Raiden never did. Also you keep saying Raiden did stupid things but give literally no examples. Sometime people have to do things that they don't like or agree with if it means stopping the villain and that's the whole point of Raiden story in MK9. In the end, Shao Kahn died so I say Raiden did a fine enough job.

I wasn't being paranoid, I just saw that you joined this month and your first post was your reply to me about MK.

I didn't say it was hard to understand what Raiden was trying to do. I said Raiden was a dumb dumb who made one stupid decision after another. But yeah, Raiden did a fine job, he got everyone but Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade killed, gave another villain an army of Earths greatest warriors, accidentally killed the hero of Earthrealm, and was only able to "beat" Shao Kahn by letting Shao Kahn do the thing he was trying to do before everyone was killed. The funny thing is Liu Kang also beat Shao Kahn pretty early in the story mode. Surely Raiden knows how powerful this Shao Kahn person is, but nope, like a dumb dumb Raiden doesn't do anything to make sure that Shao Kahn is actually dead. Maybe after Liu Kang punched a hole in Shao Kahn Raiden should have told him to keep punching him, just keep punching this guy he's in a death match with until his head is gone. I mean Raiden does want this guy dead right? Why isn't he letting his team in on the fact that punching a hole in him might not kill him? Could it be because Raiden can't stop doing stupid things in this story? Even if he thinks he's dead, why are they letting his people take his body? Maybe keep that body so some wizard can't bring him back to life. And we know Shao Kahn has people that can't do that, because the next scene after we see Shao Kahn is alive we see Quan Chi bring someone back to life.

If you didn't know Johnny Cage was already in the game

Cassie Cage

The daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, has a lot to live up to. Her parents were among the few kombatants to survive the wars against Outworld and NetherRealm, and were instrumental to EarthRealm's victories. Cassie is as strong-willed--and occasionally hotheaded--as her mother; and as quick-witted as her beloved dad, which makes her popular within her Special Forces unit.

D'Vorah

Is of a race called the Kytinn, which populates the island realm of Arnyek. The solitary nature of the Kytinn meant a common defense of their realm was impossible; thus it was conquered and merged with Outworld by Shao Kahn. D'Vorah's loyalty and insightfulness, unusual traits for a Kytinn, led to her quick political rise.

Ferra/Torr

The dual being known as Ferra/Torr is mysterious even to their closest allies. It's rumored that Torr and Ferra were Outworld citizens, captured and permanently tethered to each other by the evil sorcerer Shang Tsung in the bowels of his Flesh Pits. They're more likely members of a forgotten symbiotic race, in which the 'rider' bonds with a 'mount.' The rider, Ferra, serves as the de facto brains of the duo, while the hulking Torr is the muscle. It's possible they communicate with each other telepathically, or that Ferra can actually understand Torr’s booming grunts. Found roaming the Tarkatan Wastes by Kotal Kahn’s troops, Ferra/Torr were pressed into service as the emperor’s personal bodyguards.

Johnny Cage

Hollywood action hero Johnny Cage entered his first Mortal Kombat tournament for the publicity. Raiden observed that the arrogant, loquacious Cage, was 'a hero. .. though he may not yet know it.' Raiden was correct, of course: Johnny's martial arts skills were not special effects--and were pivotal in EarthRealm's victory.

Kano

Kano is a member of the Black Dragon, a group of international arms dealers. Sonya, Jax and the Special Forces have been trying to shut them down for decades. Though he's from EarthRealm (Australia), Kano usually sides with his home realm's enemies. In the past he provided high tech weapons both to Shao Kahn's Outworld armies and Shinnok and Quan Chi of the NetherRealm. After Shinnok's defeat Kano returned to Outworld, keeping a low profile but making a tidy profit running guns from Earth to Outworld.

Kotal Khan

Kotal Khan was a young boy in the warrior realm of Osh-Tekk when it was merged with Outworld by Shao Kahn. He grew up admiring the Outworld emperor. But Kotal kept hidden from Shao Kahn a secret Osh-Tekk portal to EarthRealm. Kotal's 'magical' appearances and demonstrations of great power in EarthRealm led its inhabitants to declare him a god, whom they called Buluc. After Shao Kahn was killed in the war with EarthRealm, Kotal served Shao Kahn’s heir Mileena. But her instability eventually led Kotal to overthrow her and assume the emperorship.

Mileena

Perceiving a lack of loyalty in his adopted daughter, Kitana, Shao Kahn ordered Shang Tsung to create a replacement, a daughter worthy to be his heir. Shang Tsung fulfilled Shao Kahn's order by fusing Tarkatan DNA with Kitana’s. The resulting hybrid Mileena is as bloodthirsty and vicious as a Tarkatan, but possesses the martial artistry and poise of an Edenian.

Raiden

Raiden is the God of Thunder and the Protector of EarthRealm. Millennia ago he and the Elder Gods defeated Shinnok, who sought dominion over the realms. More recently, Raiden thwarted Outworld's attempts to conquer and merge with EarthRealm. However victory came at great cost. Many of Raiden's closest allies were killed in the battle. Raiden's strength was further tested when an escaped Shinnok’s NetherRealm armies attacked an EarthRealm weakened by war. Ultimately Raiden imprisoned Shinnok again--this time in Shinnok's own Amulet.

Scorpion

Hanzo Hasashi was a member of the Shirai-Ryu assassin clan until they and his family were killed by Sub-Zero of the rival Lin Kuei clan. Hanzo's soul was claimed by the NetherRealm sorcerer Quan Chi, who resurrected him as the revenant Scorpion and gave him the chance to avenge his family's deaths.

Sub-Zero

Kuai Liang and his older brother Bi-Han served the Lin Kuei assassin clan faithfully until the first Mortal Kombat tournament. There Bi-Han, code-named Sub-Zero, was killed by the demon Scorpion. Kuai Liang assumed the Sub-Zero mantle and went to Outworld to find his brother's killer.

Although Fujin is in the game, but I'm not sure if he's playable.

Just cause they aren't popular doesn't mean I don't want them to be abandoned, there were some solid character that might have worked had they got worked on some more.

Tanya for example, is a character I wouldn't mind returning, just a snake in the grass who nobody can trust and switches alligences whenever it's convenient for her, a character who's only interested in herself, there aren't many women like that in games, just straight up irredeemable types, I'd like to see what they can do with a character like that.

Most of MK's bad characters should just be abandoned. There isn't much point in reworking them into something good and interesting if it means you basically have to make a new character.

Johnny Cage's signature moves, like his slide kick and crotch punch, span his three fighting styles, but "A-List" lets players charge certain normal and special attacks for increased damage. The risk-reward is that charged attacks take a little longer to actually execute, but it's a good opportunity to mix up your moves and inflict more damage if you connect.

Cage's other variations include "Fisticuffs," in which Johnny is outfitted with a pair of brass knuckles (that, of course, read C-A-G-E across the front). Fisticuffs adds a move called fist bump that increases the damage of certain moves for a limited period of time and gives Johnny some flashy combos. Cage can also fight with a "Stunt Double" variation, with which he can create yellow mimics of himself. Instead of performing his signature slide kick or rising uppercut himself, he can launch a ghostly mimic to perform the same move. Stunt Double limits his fireball throwing ability, however. Instead of tossing two fireballs in two different arcs, a la Mortal Kombat 2, Stunt Double Cage can only throw them in a straight horizontal line, as in the original Mortal Kombat.

He still sucks, to an almost mind blowing degree. For a series that takes so much from movies, it's odd they couldn't think of one interesting cop character to rip-off. Design wise he still sucks too, he might actually suck more because old chubby Stryker was at least funnier. His moves are also really stupid, oh look, it's the Mortal Kombat fighter that hits people with a flashlight...why are you so lame Stryker? His backstory is actually worse in MK9. The idea of being the only person alive in some giant city is more interesting than being the friend of a better character. I don't remember any personality of note.

Huge fan of the series and was the first fighting game I ever played was MK1 when I was a kid, loved it since then and since the years have gone on I've built up a love for some Kharacters and skills with them, who I genuinely love to play as. In order.
Kabal
Baraka
Mileena
Sindel
Stryker
Nightwolf

Out of that list only one character is present. Mileena. Granted some are dead in the story, but let's be honest story is not priority in Kompetitive games like MK. I wouldn't mind as much as I do but were getting DLC with gimmick characters like Jason Vorhees and Predator. While Kharacters like Baraka are omitted.....it just makes me think your game is a bit of a joke tbh, and EVEN worse they may show up later as DLC?

I'm happy that Frost seems to be a unique npc as that means she may be dlc like Tanya as she's pretty highly requested as a female add thanks to the mkx comics.

It's a convo between Kung Jin and Raiden. Kung Jin hints he's gay and the Shaolin won't accept him for being like that but Raiden tells him the Shaolin would as they only care if his heart is good not what his heart desires.

It makes sense as he's very close to Takeda and while he grows close to Cassie he never hits on her or acts casually around her like he does with Takeda despite Takeda being straight.

We know Liu Kang flirted with Kitana and no one cared so men liking women isn't an issue with the Shaolin.

We also know the Shaolin aren't racist or sexist.

Does anyone feel like Lui Kang's character taking on a darker role can be traced back to the first film? In that continuity, he was just out for revenge and had lot of doubt and guilt, whereas in the original game he was the only character who was fighting for solely altruistic reasons. Fast forward to MK Deception where his corpse is resurrected as an enforcer for the corrupted Raiden and is used as a weapon against his friends. His ending in MK 9 has him going mad with power and killing Raiden (interestingly enough Shang's ending has him as the new hope for Earth when Lui goes over the deep end).

Shame Fujin, Li Mei, Frost, Reiko, and Rain weren't on the roster or dlc. Course we mat get another pack and with vets retiring in mkx I can see most of them getting in.

YouTube still enforces it as does twitch. It doesn't benefit them not to do it as NRS is understandably not happy about the leaks.

Yeah, I expect to see many of them down the line. Fujin and Rain, definitely. Li Mei seems like a good chance too.

I have some thoughts on the story. It'll be very spoilery:

I preferred MK9's story but can't figure out why. I think overall, the stakes felt higher in MK9 -- Shao Kahn left Earthrealm in ruins, everyone died -- and more characters got their big moments. Raiden, Liu Kang, Sindel, Shao Kahn, Shang Tsung, Quan Chi ... all of them felt like bigger deals than any of the characters in MKX's story. I felt like Mileena was building to something but she didn't. I never felt like any of the new kids were that special either and Shinnok's plan seemed to be implemented awfully quick and solved equally as quickly. And Kotal Kahn didn't feel like a worthy successor to Shao Kahn, although at least he seemed smarter. Some of the new characters, especially Ferra/Torr, were REALLY undeveloped and uninteresting. Tanya and Rain just disappeared after a point.

Having said that, there were a few things I liked. D'Vorah was good. Sub-Zero was good. And the best thing about the whole story mode? SCORPION! He was the most interesting character they've ever had and I love him more as a human than I ever did as a revenant. He was just so fantastic. His "fuck Earthrealm, I just want Quan Chi" attitude was exactly what you want from a revenge storyline and Quan Chi's death was the one death that felt like a big deal.

I do have one thing to say though; I have NO idea why they bothered including Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Kitana as playable characters in this. It's very, very weird. In the story mode, they only came back at the tail end of the second act. It feels like they could have been replaced by new characters and there would be no issue. Plus, it would make MK9's deaths a lot more meaningful. Now, I don't care about the deaths of Baraka, Mileena or Quan Chi because, while I'm sure they'll stick for those three characters (I think they can do without them. Their stories are done), I also know that Netherrealm can just bring them back if they want.

Plus, it would make MK9's deaths a lot more meaningful. Now, I don't care about the deaths of Baraka, Mileena or Quan Chi because, while I'm sure they'll stick for those three characters (I think they can do without them. Their stories are done), I also know that Netherrealm can just bring them back if they want.

While Mileena dying is a bit of a bummer, because she was one of my mains in MK9, but I'd have to agree with you.

Okay some thoughts. I couldn't get the hang of kung jin. starting to learn kotal kahn. Liu Kang is OP, scorpion's combos are hard to pull off for some reason. Cassie is amazing, and D'vorah and Raiden are great for combos. Gonna learn Jax next

story spoilers/Arcade ending spoilers:

You know, considering the ending, I wouldn't mind if Raiden was the big bad in the next game, just take his/Kotal Khan's Arcade Ending that he was so obsessed with protecting Earthrealm that he went too far, attacked the others realms and Kotal Khan enacted Mortal Kombat and there we go.

I didn't like that Kitana, Lui Kang and Kuna Lao in this game were still revenants in the story despite them being human in the other modes but this gives me hope for maybe Sindel DLC in the future!

Also Milenna getting killed by this new character who wasn't even the person Milenna was fighting against =/ but I like D'vorah so I'll get over it.

Not everyone has the game yet. So it's fair. Heck, I get nodded at gamefaqs for spoiling games that are over a decade old.

I personally feel there should be a clause within a year. If you're spoiled at that point than you're at fault.

The idea that the game has a very rich mythology. It's got a story, a story that's a complete convoluted mess. The story is also really really stupid. It was a fun stupid in the first two games, but the last four MK games (not counting this one, since I don't know it's story) have stories so dumb it makes you wonder what they were thinking.

Well that is a bad tone in general for while the premise of MK does not take itself seriously at first it's plot in recent years is actually pretty damn series compared to other fighting game as of 9 and X death if via story mode seems permanent unless situation applies.

MK 1 was Enter The Dragon with mystic powers, 2 was same deal, different battle field. Three was Earth invaded, 4 a new non out world threat from a non mainstream game. Deadly Alliance was first step in shit getting really serious and Dark and kept til now.

X is that Raidens stopped Shao Khan, preventing visions of MKA. However all of Raidens mistakes in handling the matter are biting him in the ass as a result. Also new generation of fighters and CHARACTER development. Holy shit what they did to Scorpion in story mode.

MK is doing a damn good job because it is keeping the fun but now finding a good excuse for it. Unlike say Street Fighter which recycles its shit again and again for no good reason.

Mortal Kombat has the best story and lore out if any fighting game in my opinion. Heck, 6 million+ viewed the Mortal Kombat 9 story on youtube. Mortal Kombat X also has a comic series too.

People really care about stories, even in fighting games. My friend won't even discuss Mortal Kombat X with me out of fear that I'll spoil him on the story, and he's one of those people that go to tournaments and plays competitively so I was surprised.

It does later on as Sonya regrets her decisions and they're a family again at the end.

I also suggest reading the ongoing MKX comic.

Can't wait for Frost to return as scheduled and how they'll get her to join the Lin Kuei in this timeline.

Sub-Zero even tells Sonya in an intro between them before fights that Frost is Lin Kuei when Sonya asks if there are any female Lin Kuei.

Raidens said in story mode his visions stopped. Visions of Shao Khan and MKA so future is undecided but Onaga and Blaze will show up again. Also Reiko with Havik are trying to cause something.

So the future? Who knows but as it is going it is promising.

Your doing it wrong. SF is always about the game. It always relied on outside sources to make something out the excuse plot.

Back to MK, the online for this is horrible. It feels like I'm underwater half the time. It's a roll of the dice if I can execute any of my combos and setups.

Actually, they're quarrelling isn't what bugs me so much as the attention it received. I finished the story mode and I'm glad they shift the focus away from Johnny and Sonya a bit during the second half of the game.
Frost should be pretty cool if they add her as a playable character.

For MK11, I hope that Smoke and Jade come back.

Sub-Zero's unbreakable variation is useless. Ice aura and barrier ain't good enough to sustain a style of it's own. Those moves should have been added to the Grand Master variation as ice clone does a better job of providing a defensive style.

Cassie Cage is a big eff you to a certain guy in Deception which makes me laugh. Scorpion, Raidens and Kotal make sense.

Milenas was interesting. Liu Kangs makes sense in context and Kitanas just left a bad taste in my mouth.

There was nothing really convoluted about DA. Quan Chi and Shang Tsung team up to assassinate Shaor Kahn and Liu Kang, and have to be stopped before they can steal countless souls to resurrect an ancient invincible army. There, one sentence.

Now, Deception and Armageddon get flack for their plot central original characters being shit, rightfully so because they absolutely were, but there was nothing wrong with the actual plots of either game. You want a Mortal Kombat game with a terrible plot, it's MKvsDCU.
