Reintroducing Reptile - Official Mortal Kombat X Render

It was a big double reveal last week as Mortal Kombat X welcomed back two klassic kombatants! Not to be overshadowed by a subsequent spotlight - Reptile returned in an exciting gameplay reveal trailer. Take a closer look at the Reptile's new skin:


Click Image to Enlarge in New Window

Many returning characters have seen klassic influences embedded within their designs, but the through line from Reptile's last appearance, to now, is one of its most surprising qualities.

The new design addresses some of the weaker elements of the 2011 look. A heftier, armored face mask eliminates the store bought quality of the 2011 cowl and mask combo - even while retaining the (literal) connection. between each headpiece Though still connected, their shape is much less round than the previous incarnation, taking away the slightly comic, cutesy nature of the last design.

Reptile's chin can clearly be seen protruding from the bottom of the new metallic mask. It hinges horizontally to allow for an acid spew without the fuss of exposing his face. It's an interesting idea that almost reminds us of the strange, muzzle-like adaptation of ninja masks use in Mortal Kombat 4.

Yeah, I noticed that too. Looks like a different mask, no bone vest, shoulder armour.

I'm certain the mask is the same as both of them have the fangs (lower part). The costume itself is different and could be his main or alt.

I'm thinking it's the same, the Bone Armor and possibly mask is part of a Variation.

I think dengoline's right; the lower edges of the mask above the eyes in the character select box are quite curved, very much like the comic appearance, whereas gameplay trailer Reptile's were diagonal. Good eye.

It's not. The visual variation cues only appear once you confirm the character selection, which was not the case in the stream.

Both masks have "fangs" but they aren't the same design. This one looks like it has nostrils and other details don't really match up, as far as I can see...The colour doesn't look silver/metallic either.

I know, but neither Reptile or Kitana's variation cues popped up when Paulo picked them before being told not to. All other characters did when chosen.

I think this build didn't have their variations available so obviously they were set to a single one. Reptile's being the one with bone armor.

Maybe I haven't seen a good enough pic because the mask isn't clearly visible in what I'm looking at. As you can see from looking at Tazer_Gunshot's avatar and signature, the mask is a lot harder to make out in the signature pic. I can't really tell what I'm looking at

Anyone got a decent (Possibly zoomed in) screenshot?

And I just realized how much I actually miss those cool little backgrounds that the character mugshots used to have back in the day.

Reptile and Kitana weren't chosen on the stream, he simply hovered over them.

The variations menu and visual cues only appear once you confirm your character selection. That's why we didn't see them and that's also why the bone vest can't be variation based.

After watching it again, I see my mistake. I mistook the animation they do when being hovered over for actual character selection. Oops

Just checked it out myself and yeah, it's different. Can't wait either to see his other costume.

Yup, that is definitely a different costume! Interesting..

Thanks for taking the time to get this, I just wish they didn't stream in 720p.

I've been saying this for years and years.

One of my main gripes with the MK9 select screen and with the current one.

RE: reptiles costume in the stream is different

I thought Kung Lao on the select screen portrait was Freddy. I had to do a double take, lel. Nice find too. I barely noticed, but it does make sense. I got an alternate feeling with Reptile because of the bone vest. Ermac looks like an alt too, but with the portrait it looks like it's gonna be his primary. Maybe a masked version for an alt for the people that don't like his face shown?

Shao Kahn did nothing wrong
