You know it's funny, I never saw him as a mummy per say, I thought he was decaying because his body couldn't contain the souls without powerful magic ala Shao Khan or Shang Tsung helping him. At least that's my headcannon.
Aw fuck, I was about to respond to this with so much excitement, but then I read this page and it's now deflated. I'm hoping he was reigned in by NRS PR-people because he spoke too soon. This man is who I always think of when I imagine Shang Tsung. Also, he's a fucking badass actor, and Man in the High Castle is a phenomenal show. I'd be so happy to see his likeness (young AND old!) in MK11.
I hope CHT's retraction is just because NRS asked him to do so. That dude's portrayal of Shang Tsung is probably the most revered among all of Shang's incarnations over the years. His inclusion would make me go from waiting for a sale to buying the game on day one.
I mean, if Cage's stuff wasn't reason enough on its own.
The Krypt mode was already confirmed, but Himmerick added that it will be a bit of a surprise in terms of the new direction given by the developers. "Yes, there will be a Krypt! You can expect it to be fun. I don’t want to oversell it, for sure, but I think it’ll be a nice surprise to the players when they see the direction the Krypt has taken in this game."
Aaaaahhhhhhh! Why did they announce this so close to launch of they're going to give so little content every week!? They could have announced this game 18 months ago and, at the rate they are sharing news, we'd still be waiting to hear about the full roster today.
