Except that they only changed Tanya's appearance due to fans crying about white-washing. There has been no such complaints about Baraka, Sindel, Fujin or Bo' Rai Cho.

Yeah, Solomon Gaitan (the designer who did the redesign) said Tanya was a special case -- and a sensible special case, given the 'white girl in a ratty Party City wig' look they gave her to start out .

Maybe we should complain that Sindel's hair isn't regal enough. LOL Just kidding.

I love how often Party City is thrown around when talking about Tanya's original design. I'd really like to know what the hell they were thinking.

He looks like the random character generated by an MMO's character creator before you go in and make your own.

Also, the coolest thing about Rain in the last 20 years is his voice in MKX.

So Andrew S. Bowen (the voice actor of Johnny, Smoke, and Rain in MKX) posted this a few days back (Sept 22nd).

RE: Rain is the new Invasion Boss

Rain's voice actor also does Johnny Cage. This could easily be about him doing new lines for Johnny Cage.

I am going to believe that more than the possibility of Rain being confirmed as a DLC character seeing how it was already confirmed long before this game's release that he was not going to be a DLC character.

I mean, two games in a row that a most wanted character gets thrown to the DLC portion of the game? Please. **Incoming angry Rain fans complaining to this post**

Richard Epcar also posted a picture of the WB watertower and said "Guess where I was today? One clue: "Thunder take you!""

So it's entirely likely that they're getting the band back together for vs. new DLC character reaction lines (such as intros and mid-fight quips).

I remember when people said : "They wouldn't call everyone back for VAs" and I said : "It's probably part of their contract".

People also seem to forget that Boon & Co. have lied straight through their teeth about at least three different things leading up to release.

Also, this KP wasn't exactly planned ahead of time. So there may be some "surprising" decisions.

Exactly. Using the whole "Rain will not be DLC because Boon said so 8 months ago" is idiotic.

The man can change his mind for crying out loud. He won't be executed for making a fanbase happy.

RE: Rain is the new Invasion Boss

So Rain fans are comfortable once again buying a character they desperately wanted to be apart of the main roster? I find that more idiotic than going on something that the director of the game said long before the game's release. I wouldn't be happy in seeing my favorite be DLC two games in a row, I'd like to see them be playable at the start.

No duh people can go back on their words. But people were pretty ticked on seeing Rain as a DLC and not be apart of the main roster for the ninth game. Why after knowing that would they make the same move again? I simply cannot see them making Rain once again a DLC character, no matter how badly people want him in.

Bite me.

I'm right there with you.

I'd be furious if Fujin made KP2, then ended up as DLC in the next roster. No one should be paid DLC twice period. I'd hope NRS wouldn't sink that low as to have Rain behind a paywall twice. That would be disgusting. And it's not because Boon said they wouldn't, it's because they'd be ripping off Rain fans.

Yeah, that would be really slimy, but given the demand that Rain got for MK9 and now MKX, NRS may think that Rain is a safe purple cash cow.

And they know Rain fans (myself included) want him bad, and are also in a kind of a trap.

Option A) Abstain from buying him, sticking true to principle. And tell them that we shouldn't have to pay twice. Next title? Bullshit excuse: "Rain didn't sell well last time, so we're not including him in the next roster at all. Maybe he'll show up in a future title. Maybe."

Option B) Fork over the $5 or so and enjoy the sweet, sweet pleasure. Next title? NRS makes Rain DLC again because they know fans will fund one more year of college for the top brass' kids.

Of course, that's just me assuming the worst about the beast of business.
