Mortal Kombat X Kitana Concept Art Gallery

During the latest Kombat Kast live stream, NetherRealm Studios showed off a gallery of concept arts. Here are some of the designs for Kitana [click to enlarge]:

Kitana is a signature member of the Mortal Kombat roster, so we wanted to come up with something exciting and fresh for her look in Mortal Kombat X.

Past incarnations have tended to favor the royal qualities of the character over the warrior aspects, so we decided to reverse that for her costume. She has a stealthier, more ninja inspired design with blue as an accent color against the black parts of her costume.

Apparently past designs have focused on Kitana's "royal qualities". That's certainly an interesting way of putting it. We might argue that's what's been missing from Kitana's usually pared down designs, especially in the last few games.

Executive Producer Shaun Himmerick recently confirmed a plethora of opportunities for additional DLC skins for Mortal Kombat X. Could one of these be Kitana's? Register to share your favorites on the forum!

Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

The recent Kast showed a selection of Kitana Concept Designs. While I am happy about the outcome of her primary outfit, but as for the concept designs, they look amazing. Her alternate, it's okay, not digging the loin cloth part.

I'm still totally digging on her primary. There were some interesting concepts though...hopefully they make it in as DLC down the line.

RE: Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

there were some really good ideas ... sadly, they've picked one of the blandest for her alt ... hopefully , she'll get some other , too...

I like her primary the best, but I think her primary would have looked good with her alts hair.

The primary. Most of them looks like they were a completely different character.

Ethereal, ravenous, piercing. It's Mileena bitch.

RE: Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

I was blown away by some of the designs,

The hooded one looked beautiful,

as did some of the later ones

Her alt is fine, but Its so much blander,which is a pity

Her alternate is VERY plain. With the amount of detail put into her primary, her 2nd look is very underwhelming. I don't want to be too salty, though, hopefully it will look a lot better in game.



^This is a really good look for Kitana, and I'd actually love if they gave something like this to Mileena.

All the concept art for Kitana looks very cool, although I didn't really see how it would fit her. A lot of them were very sinister and revealing, and I think a lot of them would also look a lot better on Mileena.

I LOVED the hooded look, but I wasn't feeling it from the neck down on those two outfits.

In the first lot of designs, number 4 is really nice.

Not liking the blue and silver combo.


I wanted another leotard. Something Like her MKDA unmasked, my favorite costume of hers.

RE: Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

I think I know why I wasn't digging the alternate as much now. I think the loin cloth was too wide in the front and back. It is kind of jarring because the upper portion is so slim that it just doesnt seem like it matches up. Then again it was concept art and actual execution may look different so...blah. Yeah, still love the primary.

RE: Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

Yeah, for me the hooded version of Kitana was the best one by far (especially the 2b variant). Don't really care for the current alt they have, but who knows... maybe it looks better ingame. :)

slutgarden.


I am wondering, Scorpion has been massively toned down from the sensory overload his primary was in MK9...

I wonder if her simple alt will stand out on her own.

The white hood set is great IMO.

I think the one that they chose as an alt is really bland compared to most of those designs.

Oh yeah, forgot to mention. I hope they give a variation of this outfit to Mileena, it definitely looks like something she would have worn as the Queen of Outworld. It'd be a pretty badass alt.

Those last few sketches with like evil queen Kitana are dope. Throw some blue on those and I'm all for them.

I am waiting for an official artbook, full of Mortal Kombat sketches.... where is it??? Nowhere, non-existent. Big book, at least 300 pages. I am waiting to buy this.

RE: Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

It looks like they at some point considered some sort of dark queen version of Kitana?

The concept art looks sick, they chose right with her primary, it's still my favourite.

Hope they show off more of these in future streams. I want an artbook.

RE: Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

I absolutely love her primary, she looks better than ever imo.

Alt wise I think the one they chose was okay, but I would have gone with the hooded one on the left hand side. Hopefully the alt they have chosen looks better in game.

Indeed, where the freak is the artbook? When will we purchase that mess in bookstores?

I actually really love the alt because I'm a fan of MK9 Kitana's primary. I loved the light blue and silver. Also I like the tiara.

RE: Kitana Concept Designs. Your favorite?

If you look at the description on their tumblr page, they say her royal side was always more present and now they brought her assassin side more to the forefront? What? They never ever made her seem royal and this is the first time they gave her some sort of royal garm and crown / jewel on her head.

The weirdest thing is how she looks asian in the concepts, even the alternate and does not look asian. Matter of fact, NRS seems to have trouble with getting the asian look down anyway. Only the old MK trilogy games, because of their lack of quality, as well as the actors they hired made Liu Kang at least look asian.

I think she looks okay though, they joked about the female look in previous games, were they referring to the stripper / over sexified look? Glad that is out, though I like the concept of her being kind of a queen. Could've used it as an alternate at least.

Her primary costume is my favorite for sure, I was a little underwhelmed when they showed her alternate costume. I did like the hair on her very first concept drawing in the first pic that they showed.

This one was my favorite. I wouldn't mind seeing it as her alternate instead of the one we're actually getting.

Glad they didn't give her the queen look, that should be for an actual queen, like Mileena ;)
