Interesting stuff. One thing I wonder is the amount of unlockable characters there'll be for the main story mode.

Great, I love the character designs so far. I like how some use the old MK2 look, but have slight variations to reflect theirselves. Like where Jade and Kitana have longer clothing, Mileena has more revealing clothes which represents her. Kung Lao, Sub-Zero, and Reptile have the coolest looks so far IMO.

One question I have, in MK2, Kung Lao had some red symbol on his shirt. Does this symbol mean anything and is it on him in SM?

Keep up the great work.

This game looks great. I hope Adam won't get any punches from you! I feel extremely weird saying that as Adam is my name...

The fact that you mentioned Sonya...it just made my day. But what is going to happen with her? Will she be just basically an extra, put in the game to stand there in cutscenes or will she have a more involved part. Also will the original kidnapped/saved by Jax story go on through the game?

On the new OPM demo disk there is the playable MKSM, a behind the scenes feature, and finally a little character movie.

For you Shao Kahn fans, one of the characters that was shown in the character movie, was indeed our helmeted friend.

Not sure if that means hes officially "in" or not, but it's encouraging!!!

I know that Shaun said that there will be a total of 8 playable characters in vs. mode, but I have a feeling that this game will have some super unlockable characters. I mean its back in MK1 and MK2 time where mysteries and secrets kept us playing the games. I guess for now we can only hope and pray.

A delicate question: are you intending to go by the tournament setting of MK2 where Shang Tsung and Shao Kahn challenge and lure the Earthly forces to Outworld, or are you leaving the tournament plotline out of the installment?

Adding Kenshi was a good idea. I kid, Kenshi would have made no sense in the story. He is not in this game or is he? Again I kid or am I? Seriously though, we can't give away all the secrets.


I really hope Kenshi isn't in the game.

Kenshi!!? Kenshi rocks!!! Maybe he's just a cameo appearance, but he is one of the best in MK. Maybe he is still searching Shang Tsung O.o

Kenshi was kind of involved around this time if you go by Konquest mode on MKD. He was blinded by Shang Tsung, remember. wink

Nice sig btw OngBak. glasses

If Kenshi is in the game, I suspect you will see him in earthrealm either before or during the tarkata attack. After Tsungs defeat. It will probably be something like
"Alright Tsung...I found ya. I found your little martial arts get together, and my sword wants to say hello. I'm gonna....oh crap, I'm late, aren't I..?
Then maybe he'll help out with the Tarkatan attack.
Or maybe Shaun needs a little humor to release some stress so he's trying to cause all this rucuss on the boards about Kenshi. Sounds like something I would do lol

I saw that discussed in a magazine once. it means 'war'
out of ninjas, cyborg thugs, evil ninja robots, martial artists, martial artists with sharp hats, princesses, bodyguards with more than 4 limbs, undead movie stars, native american shamans, evil emporrers, gods and secret service agents, you say Stryker didn't fit in MK3?

I cant wait to see what they have done with SONYA! grin

To say he loves whats being done with her is definitely a plus for me, I hope to see some cool and even funny things (tough chick attitude) happen with her in the story. I even have hopes that they will develop her “romance” with Johnny Cage!

I really hope she is playable, but if she is not, I will be happy with seeing a lot of her through the story, and by the look of it, something important might happen with her.

Could they have been inspired by the comics published by Malibu in the 1990s?? I hope they did, she plays a very significant and truly important role in that story.

MKSM sounds amazing!
