Given the third and brand new character standing by a giant hourglass, and the second scorpion (probably a past scorp) theres going to be timeline fuckery involved again. That pretty much means that literally any character and version of that character can show up from any point in this game if the starting point goes back further if my guess is right.

The preorder character is Shao Kahn, check the trailer on the MK twitter. There's also a beta.

Cant wait for my man Reptile to be announced.
And bring back Nightwolf & Skarlet. Ferra probably doesn't have any chance to return eh? Lol

Hoping for Noob and Smoke.
Not as one character this time.
Rain would also be good. Also at least one cyborg.

Also please give me more female characters that aren't comically sexed up. Then I'll be good. Thanks.

This is like the 2nd time I've seen someone ask for Havik and that's already super strange to me.

Bonus points for including Hotaru though.

Pre-order only stuff again? This kills the hype for me sorry. Shame , it was my highlight of the show.

I hope there will be another complete version like Mortal Kombat XL (which wasn't 100% complete and you still needed to purchase extra costumes).

Btw, the second Scorpion, was that the one from the first timeline or just another alternate costume? If this happens then different timelines may be entwined and involved. It would be so cool to see that evil Raiden being the surviving one from the first timeline.

Spoilers:

There are two timelines, the original Trilogy and the dark timeline. This is possibly Dark Raiden.
You can also customize outfits in this game like Injustice 2 so light as well be a unique outfit.
Oh man, if only this is true. That woudl be epic.

So sad your character is pre-order only. :(

Jade. I really want to see Jade back. I loved the designs they had for Kitana, and it left me with the feeling of what could have been. I'd also like to see Reptile back.

MK lately has a trend going where they invite popular horror figures into the series. I'm neutral to the additions, but I'm curious as to who they might include this time around.

I know publishers can't wait to announce pre-orders as soon as possible, and I'm mostly fine with it, but can they at least wait until at least showing gameplay first?!

Also, all I need is Kitana.

Would you consider the two daughters from X to be heavily sexualized? Genuinely curious.

I don't think so no, but honestly I can't remember them very well anymore. I played only a few MKX months ago and the kids didn't leave much of an impression.
It's more to do with every single female character before MKX.

Given the logo matches up with MK II, I am really hoping they are pulling from MK2 history/timeline and the means human Reptile.

I also hope it means that MK2 timeline characters will play closer to that game while MK 11 characters will be a semblance of MKX playstyle. Newer characters having the target combo and special move links... Whereas MK2 characters will be more about hard hitting shorter combos where you use special moves to connect up with a juggle before another special move. Subtle difference, but would love for a remaster/revisit of what made MK2 stand out so well during the reign of Street Fighter II

Yup, exactly what I want; as I get older, I'm getting sick of complicated combos that need enormous amount of inputs… I need some characters with shorter and hard hitting combos for much more strategic gameplay like back in the day, mk1-2 and sf2... good times...

I just hope Kitana is in, and her face looks better than it did in X. I actually prefered using the mask...

Edit: just watched the trailer, the music was bad and out of place.

I guess the leak is real so I am happy to have Jade and Li Mei back. On the other hand sad to see Mileena go, but hey there is always DLC...

I think injustice 2 proved that NR finally learned how to properly model female faces (or faces in general for that matter).
