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.

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.

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."

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.
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.

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.

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.

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.
