Whos Next? Cassie Cage - A Work In Progress

Mortal Kombat X developer NetherRealm Studios has released a new character interaction image that has everybody talking about second generation debutante: Cassie Cage!

The daughter of klassic kombatants Johnny Cage & Sonya Blade was first introduced to us way back during June's E3 debut! An official render image soon followed - and it was there that the apparent work in progress first became evident. The latest picture's quippy dialogue is standard fare for "going viral", but like gossip coverage of Hollywood starlets - it's Cassie's changing face that is perhaps unintentionally drawing all the attention.

So's your face!
Changing Faces: Cassie Cage is growing up so fast!

Comparing and contrasting the different iterations of Cassie Cage has been simple, thus far. Both incarnations of the official render have favoured an obscured face -- the E3 build, in particular, featuring a Cassie with choppy short hair that covered even more of her distinguishing features.

The E3 look implied a slightly more mature, austere character than the bubblegum chewing, trash talking fighter that has since emerged -- a likely indication of the work in progress, more so than characterization. In the latest image, Character Variations come into play, but the rendering of Cassie's face is noticeably different.

Despite a five month timeframe following, we've still seen comparative little of Cassie when measured against other E3 introductions. D'Vorah, Ferra/Torr & Kotal Kahn took the lions share of demo coverage and screenshots, with only D'Vorah receiving the Character Variation spotlight, in the mean time! Tumblr animated GIFs - another attempt to virally spread, but only with thumbnail detail.

While the few glimpses we have seen have fed easily into assumptions based on the character's lineage -- it's fair to say we still know very little about the character's motivation, attitude, or circumstances.

Talking to Comic Vine at New York Comic Con; upcoming Mortal Kombat X comics writer Shawn Kittelsen toyed with the idea of Cassie Cage's parental issues as daughter to two of Earthrealm's greatest heroes -- a movie star and military woman, respectively.

It goes without saying that all characters in the demo are subject to change. The development process inherently lends itself to ongoing and organic improvements. Almost every modern version of Mortal Kombat has previewed elements that were altered, or improved, come the final retail version. It seems clear that Cassie Cage is nearing her definitive form, and while likely unintentional, the different images have provided an interesting look inside the creative process.

The texture of her face seems a little too smooth and plastic-y, but other than that I don't really see anything wrong with her model.

At least she looks like a girl, unlike most of the Injustice cast, and doesn't have a horrifically imploded nose like MK9 Kitana.

I can definitely see the improvement after Rockchalk5477 left that pic, but I don't know man... just something about her face is just off to me.

You know, I think that's exactly what's off to me.

It's actually better if you see the pic zoomed all the way in. At the proper resolution, you can start to notice her texture actually does have faint pores and freckles.

Granted it's still possible she's a little too shiny.

Cassie looks much better. Looks like she has got higher resolution textures on her model. Looks most apparent ot me on her face and on the cloth of her costume especially round the silver star.

I read somewhere else that her model is still beng worked on and so are her animations.

This. She looks miles better than any female in MK9 and definitely better than all the women with man-hands syndrome from 2002-2006.

I love how a whole thread is focused solely on Cassie's looks like a bunch of armchair ESPN analysts.

The obsessive nitpicking over the women's physicalities by MK fanboys is unreal.

Graphics, modelling, and art direction are important parts of a video game.

If it was Kano, Sub-Zero or any other male who's model was off putting to me, I'd say it. I couldn't give any less of a fuck if it was a female or male. So far the other characters look much better in my opinion.

She looks like plastic to me right now, though it is definitely an improvement as I stated before. Before she looked like she was from GTA:SA, her model has clearly gone through more changes than any other character in this game. I wouldn't call that nitpicking, I'd call it pointing out the obvious.

I say she looks a lot better than most of the female models from previous MK games. Especially ICK

It's not that she looks bad. It's just that she looks too fake by today's gaming standards. I suppose to further elaborate, the games with the best detailed characters could almost be imaged as a person in the real world. Cassie looks good, but she isn't convincing enough by today's standards to look real. I think that is what they mean by "PS2" look.

TLDR: She is detailed, but not convincing.

I'm not bitching though. The game looks great and so do the other characters. I am just agreeing with a point.

While this is true, the real purpose of this thread was just showcasing the whole "Nice mini skirt" line. (Which really hasn't even been discussed about at all here) I really wasn't aiming on discussing Cassie's change but meh, it's getting a discussion so carry on.

Sorry about changing up your thread, bro chick. \._./

The mini skirt line is pretty funny, though. I'm wondering though if it's actual in game dialogue or just NRS having some Facebook fun.

Upon going back to a video from E3, it seems to me that the dialogue is accurate. Though there is no dialogue, you can sort of read Cassie's lips. (It definitely looks like she's saying "mini-skirt".)
