  • For MK 11, what do you guys think might actually happen? I have a feeling we will see the return of the Dragon King and maybe a few 3D era characters that were rather cool. Anyone have any ideas?

      Loading editor
    • I think there will be an alliance between Raiden and Hotaru. This is because they both want the same thing which is universal order. Daegon and Onaga will be on the same side and possibly join the alliance of Hotaru and Raiden. I would like to see Shujinko join the Forces of Light in a battle against Raiden and Company.

        Loading editor
    • We should probably take into consideration of the Royal Revenants, Liu Kang and Kitana. They should probably take Raiden's warning as a threat and go up against him. So no, we can have Netherrealm and the Forces of Light joining forces.

        Loading editor
    • We know at some point Liu Kang and the others will be restored. The only question is how?

        Loading editor
    • Jensei? I suppose that Ermac could snap them out of it just like in Deception.

        Loading editor
    • The Jensei wouldn't be a very logical choice because of what happened with Raiden.

        Loading editor
    • The Jensei was corrupted with the stain of Shinnok. It was only when Raiden cleansed it with his powers that he was corrupted like contracting the corruption. Now that the Jensei is clean, we can start sending knocked out revenants in there like at the beginning of MKX.

      I really hope so, but I'm not confident. Only because Netherrealm seems really intent on burying Liu Kang and making him act so out of character for no real valid reason. A lot of people have said that it's Ed who hates Liu, but I don't know if I buy that. 

        Loading editor
    • Yeah. I don't buy it either. 

        Loading editor
    • Still, MKX's story was so bad, it kinda made MK9's worse for me in retrospect, regardless of who at Netherrealm doesn't like what character. I feel I'll be lucky at this point for even a little bit of goodwill to be brought back to the lore with the next game.

        Loading editor
    • I have a feeling Onaga will be back in MK 11. But it does wonder me what he might look like for the game, if he will retain a few things from his Deception design.

        Loading editor
    • I guess I'm all for some hybrid design between old and new.

        Loading editor
    • I think he'll have a head very similar to that of a Red Dragon hybrid from Armageddon. And retain stuff like his helmet, wings, necklace and tail.

        Loading editor
    • I have a feeling that Onaga will be closer to what he was in Deception but without a tail and with a second set of arms. Like if Goro becomes the host for Onaga.

    • I would love to see No Face make a fully playable appearance for MK 11. Because Tremor had his appearance in MKX, and we don't have a full time major pyromaniac character yet either. I think he would be a good choice for the game.

        Loading editor
    • Liu Kang, Scorpion and Shang Tsung are you fire wielders. Of course, they're not technically maniacs. I think that No Face would be great to have and to play but I doubt they'll put him in just for that specifically.

    • I would like to see Motaro back for MK 11, as a Centaur boss character. Instead of him as a cameo character like in MK9.

        Loading editor
    • I would love to see Motaro too. I do understand it would take a lot of money to create him but I believe that if they create him in this new format then they will have a lot of people paying just to have him. They'll make their money back that way.

    • Huh, now there seems to be speculation that Netherrealm could be waiting on the next generation of consoles for MK11. Not sure about you, but having to wait till the PS5/Xbox Two, and thereby having only one MK game this gen would be a new level of "get fucked" for me, though could see it happening. Just not sure at the moment what next gen system I'll eventually gravitate towards, without having to experience some broken PC port of the game.

      Unfortunately I can't seem to find any kind of list of game devs that will be at the event. I feel like if NRS shows up at all we can expect some kind of news, because they'd have no other reason to be there as they don't have any games to be nominated for the awards. However... I have next to no hope that they'll actually be there, though.

      Because MKX had a lackluster one at best. And if the undead heroes are revived then I won't have much to complain about. The only thing we need is a even amount of heroes and villains for the game plus 1 or 2 neutral characters.

        Loading editor
    • The quality of the story just depends on the writers, not so much the development time that would be focused more on other things/gameplay. If there's still shitty writing, then it won't matter how long the game was worked on.

        Loading editor
    • They could use some better writers.

        Loading editor
    • I think as far as the dialogue/vocabulary is concerned, MKX was very respectable. The emphasis must lie on the overall story aspects in order to take advantage of the superb "little things" writing, though. I just finished the Arkham series and this immediately made me think of it. The dialogue in all of those games is fantastic, but only City had that amazing overall story writing in my opinion. The truth is most consumers don't pay a whole lot of attention to details, so if the major plot is shit, then the little gems of dialogue writing aren't enough to carry the load.

        Loading editor
    • I actually wouldn't mind it if there were more villains than heroes. In fact, I would find it more interesting to see the villains outnumber the heroes by at least 3 or 4 to 1.

    • A.K.A.., pretty much all the veterans people wanted for MKX DLC that were cucked by guest characters. It'll be interesting at least to see how many of them make it in the base game of MK11, taking into account how much some of them were still requested throughout the last game's lifepsan.

        Loading editor
    • Honestly, pretty much everyone who wasn't in MKX needs a chance to be in MK11. Revamps are needed with some characters and, between Mokap and Meat, some characters should become skins for other characters.

    • Kai is one character that should've gotten his spot in MKX instead of Bo' Rai Cho. I don't have any issues with Bo' Rai Cho, but Kai, Reiko and a few others should have gotten their spots in the game.

I hope the story is real as well as the adventure mode and the ability to modify the characters. Really close to Kreate-a-Kombatant (personally liked that in MK: Armageddon). The rest of it seems kind of weird. Even the lack of some characters seems weird.

      @ Blitz: If Liu Kang and Kitana are still around in the roster though while a bunch of other MK1-2 characters are cut going by the rumor, I wouldn't take him for granted honestly.

      You aren't the only one. Its seriously gotten old. Its like ever since Deadly Alliance they've been hellbent on displaying some sort of weird contempt for him. I know people who enjoyed Zombie Liu Kang in Deception and Armageddon, but for me it just felt like a slap in the face and worse than just killing him off. What's really irritating is that Liu has a lot of potential to be a great character story-wise, a hero who has character flaws (at times his ego does seem to rival Johnny's), has his beliefs challenged and goes through changes. But NRS seems intent on making him a whiny generic villain because...they think its cool and edgy, I guess?

No shade at anyone who likes 21 Savage, but that sort of hip hop doesn't suit MK thematically IMO. Also, the custom character variations system sounds cool but has me a bit worried. I'm just hoping its not too much like Injustice 2's randomized Gear racket.

      Still though, Shang Tsung they left much unexplored with, and if anything I'd like to see how he would do being back without Quan Chi or a rival sorcerer around, kinda like the MK1-3 days. Not to mention Quan Chi's story has been done to death now, and got the closure people were waiting for when Scorpion got his revenge and beheaded him.

      And yeah, vanilla MK3 was an exception to the rule. They probably didn't realize just how popular Scorpion already was by then, and quickly fixed that mistake by putting out Ultimate MK3.

      @Blitz: I have to agree with Ridley. There really are no more bosses that we can have back since most of them are actually dead. However, if we were to want a boss back then I would love to see Motaro. Assuming that NRS can do the animation at a lower cost, Motaro would be extremely cool to have back. I guess the only other option would have to be Blaze but I don't consider him a boss because he's not really a villain.

      being just old and new would be simple, but would result in less being told. all being told, i want MK to go back in time to the first mortal kombat, 9 tournaments before legendary kung lao versus shang shung. we have 19 MK tournaments which haven't been covered, everything else is usually just war past the two lui kang wins, never really cover kung lao's one win, or the 9 wins of goro and shang shung
