NR 2-year cycle still in effect. Not sure how the release date is surprising. They just avoided revealing wip stuff too early this time.
I'm going to go out on a limb and predict a komplete edition in early 2020.
Will be nice if there's a SWITCH version. If not... fine. But If any studio can pull it off, I'm sure it's these guys.
The things I liked most about the trailer, is that it really didn't seem far removed from gameplay. Stupid "stab you through the face, but you're OK to keep going!" stuff happened. The match ended with a Fatality. There was a Slomo Xray style attack in there too. The sound effects even fit.
This simultanteously makes it kinda hype, but also makes me wonder why they didn't just show an actual match, haha.
The music...? Whatever, it appeals to the people they want to play the game. MK is mass-market enough to make that fit. It doesn't fit the martial arts aesthetic at ALL, but that's something else.
Ahh well. Always nice to see a competitive game lay out a road map.
The great thing about Mortal Kombat is that you don’t need to be good at fighting games to get so much out of it. They are far and away the industry leader in the genre in terms of providing single player content. It has been this way since Deadly Alliance.
The all new Custom Character Variations give you unprecedented control to customize the fighters and make them your own. The new graphics engine showcasing every skull-shattering, eye-popping moment, brings you so close to the fight you can feel it. And featuring a roster of new and returning Klassic Fighters, Mortal Kombat’s best in class cinematic story mode continues the epic saga over 25 years in the making.
21 Savage is incredibly corny and super cringe worthy. This "I'm actually dangerous, not like all the other rappers who claim they're dangerous!" persona is a joke and him doing kayfabe with his "If Amber Rose was cheating on me, uhh uhhh, I would kill her!" was so fucking annoying.
Expect a constant flood of reveals, info, streams starting in Janurary. They really nailed the pre-release info drop cadence with Inj2. If you were following the game it was a lot of fun and there was something new almost every week. Seems they took a lot of what they learned to heart with the poor early E3 reveal of Inj2.
What are the chances that MK11 will dovetail into certain elements of the classic timeline?
Also, I'm not too familiar with the MK timeline after MK3. So anyone familiar with some of MK4 strands that were incorporated into MKX please enlighten me. Which threads from MK4 were homaged in MKX and which were subverted?
My cousin who's deeply into this franchise believes that if this current series can hold up the writers will eventually work their way back to the events from the opening cinema in MK9.
And if MK11 does end up overlapping into the old timeline, which post MK3 game would MK11 be working from?
So there is another leak which kind of lines up with this one (in terms of character exclusions) but it all sounds too good to be true tbh. However, Pig of the Hut (who has also done QA for NRS games) tweeted that he thinks the leak is legit?
There was a thread on Reddit that got deleted but someone saved the screenshots.
I'm a little bummed that neither leak mentions Nitara, and that both leaks say Mileena is not playable.
Well, at least I got Frost and Sareena (if leaks are true).
Shao-Kahn looks pretty cool.
