MKX Motion Capture Photo Teases Kenshi Return?

If appearances are to be believed: the latest Mortal Kombat X Twitter tease from Creative Director Ed Boon may suggest the return of fan-favourite sword saint: Kenshi!


"???? Wins .... Fatality! #MKX #MotionCapture" - @noobde

The behind-the-scenes photograph [pictured above] is (apparently) a fatality in-progress - capturing the motion capture men behind the wireframes that power in-game models.

[Related Article: Mortal Kombat X Behind the Scenes Notes - Sounds, Sights]

With the aggressor's fingers to his temple and opponent reacting violently at a significant distance - the move has all the hallmarks of a telekinetic attack by Kenshi! Other prime suspects include Kenshi's fictional mentor: Ermac, the soul stealing sorcerer Shang Tsung, or even recently revealed mystic Quan Chi. Only Kenshi is so specifically linked to this stance and circumstance, as in Mortal Kombat.(2011).


Kenshi promotional art for Mortal Kombat DLC.

Kenshi was first introduced in 2002's franchise reboot: Deadly Alliance. He remained a consistent presence throughout the generation, emerging as one of the most popular new additions to the klassic roster.

His plot created unique ties with fan-favourites Ermac and Sub-Zero; established a personal rivalry with series arch-villain Shang Tsung; and culminated in his enrolment with the MK Special Forces (or Outerworld Investigation Agency) - teaming the blind swordsman with Jax, Sonya & Cyrax. Kenshi was reintroduced as the second downloadable extra character in 2011's Mortal Kombat, playing an indirect role in the franchise's new timeline.

Earlier this year, Ermac & Kenshi were runners-up in the second fan-voted Supreme Tag Team Champion Tournament.

Could Kenshi be the next Mystery Boot Teaser to be revealed? Is the motion capture clue pointing to another character? Register to share your predictions on the forum!

Motion capture fatality hint - Kenshi, Ermac, ...?

Originally, I posted this in the Twitter thread, but it's an absolute ghost town, and nobody would end up reading it until next week.

Anyways, Ed recently posted a fatality teaser (from a mocap session) which seems to be hinting at the inclusion of a telekinetic character:



Plenty of people are guessing Ermac, due to the seemingly telekinetic powers this character possesses. However, Ermac never touches his hand to his head to use telekinesis, unlike Kenshi. Also, that stance looks suspiciously similar to some of Kenshi's animations from MK9.

Again, that is, if this is a returning character...

Thoughts?

Looks like Kenshi to me. Just like in his MK9 "split ends" fatality. I'd say this is Kenshi more so than Ermac, though I love and hope both are in MKX.

RE: Motion capture fatality hint - Ermac, Kenshi, ...?

It's 100% Kenshi, Ermac doesn't stand like that with a hand to his temple as if concentrating, that's a Kenshi thing. It'll be very interesting to see Kenshi with a bit of personality after his disappointing mute appearance as MK9 DLC.

Shit this is kinda a good point. I mean this picture is 100% a dead give away for Kenshi and Boon is never this obvious with his troll bullshit. If not some kinda joke though than Kenshi fans rejoice.

Why would he put #MKX though if it's not from it?

Not much since you covered all of it to be honest Rockchalk5477. Is that your credit card PIN?

If it is Kenshi, I hope they incorporate his katana differently than from Scorpion's Ninjutsu variation. I can remember from Deadly Alliance they had the same moves with their weapons.

I am wondering why there is a stool in front of the person on the right.

Lol.

J/k aside, Kenshi main roster would be bloody *brilliant* - but then, so would Ermac. Still hoping for both.

Wouldn't you like to know!

The stool is likely there to simulate the animation of a body (or body part) falling over or sliding forward (I would guess.)

Could be Shang Tsung too. But it definitely tells us it's Kenshi, Ermac, or even Shang.

I would prefer Ermac, but Kenshi would suffice.

That is Kenshi for sure! Oh, please, let him be cool like in MK:DA and MK9, and not lame like in Deception.

Really struggling to see the Shang Tsung connection. I do not think Shang Tsung would put his off hand to his temple while performing a fatality. The second tweet that Ed has posted seems to me to suggest that it is telekenisis that is being used.

Could be, I can see them giving Kenshi an even more neo-looking design, with the leather boots, trench and all...

That Fatality is definitely Kenshi tho!
