Looks great but her idle pose and overall animation is so silly.

The other char animation is much better and that insect gameplay looks dope.

That might be my favourite intro for a fighting game character.

So much characterisation in such a quick few seconds. The chair. The people keeping their heads bowed. The laziness as she gets up. The sneering look of condescension.

Dude, I still can't get over the texture and colors of her new costume.

Kitana looks great but it feels wrong seeing Jade and Kitana without masks.

Thankfully we can put those in!

Kitana looks very good this time ! But as a character, she's still bland as fuck, while D'Vorah is hype. The insect mode and the hive stage are top tier!

What an excellent redesign. D'vorah looks gnarly as hell, too.

Also, is it just me, or did that krushing blow show D'vorah's exoskeleton shatter, instead of her bones? IIRC, in MKX she was given a skeleton like everyone else, but if the tech has progressed so much that NRS can have an exoskeleton deform instead, I'm totally cool with that.
Yep they showed an exoskeleton for Dvorah. Now I'm thinking when Cetrion does her fatality we will see the entire planet of outworld.

I'm looking forward to seeing how hellish it looks from orbit.

Not feeling the bodysuit at all. Don't know why they couldn't stick with something closer to MKX

Awesome character model; Kitana looks great and so do the graphics; still can't believe they can't competently animate martial arts moves, though.
Yeah. That's NetherRealm games in general anymore. Decided to watch this and my exact thoughts were "Damn, it looks nice, but why do they insist on making everyone still fight in a herky-jerky robot fashion? It's not the 90s anymore."

Jesus Christ this game looks amazing. Count me in for “not normally into Fighters, but....”

I’ll buy it.

Kitanq looks amazing!! I have a feeling Millenia is going to be DLC no doubt about it. She's just too iconic.... It's like having no Sub Zero Or Sonya.

I'll be really sad if I'm wrong lol

It's not, though. Mileena's missed out on a number of games (original MK3, original MK4, Deadly Alliance, MK vs DC). Sonya and Sub-Zero make it 99%/100% of the time.

I like her, but she's not quite a mainstay.

Man I really don't like the way she animates. I really felt they had generally improved but she moves weird. And her neutral pose looks like she has a backache.

Agreed. I felt the animations on the other characters were so much improved but Kitana's animation is still janky. Her neutral pose leans too far forward, her walk is stiff and all her crouch attacks looks really bad. And what on Edenia is this pose and animation:


It looks like she is going through one of those TSA body scan machines.

Shame they decided to keep a boob window, but the intro and character models are quite graceful.

I’m not a big MK fan, but I admit that I like what I’m seeing in this game with the facial animation and the diversity of characters. That insect thing is creepy.


By the way, is there a reason instory on how people can fight after getting fatally injured during the killing blow? That could almost justify the overkill nature of fatalities.

Kitana's best look to date. Going to be rough deciding who to lab with first between Jade, Kitana, and
Frost.

She comes off like a real diva in the trailer which is the complete opposite of her usual reserved character.

The fatalities are non-cannon. The story doesn't feature them.

yea, some great improvement on Kitana, though there are still some problems with her animations, one kick, in particular, looks really awkward upon second viewing of the trailer. Kind of weird after everything they've done to improve, that this still pops up.
