Sonya wears a shirt in her alt and she doesn't have a thong hiked up her ass, riding all the way up to the top of her hips.

Kahn... yea, I hardly notice any change on Kahn's outfit. It's negligible at best.

Mileena ad much less of a reason to wear those skimpy outfits back then, than she does now. She was portrayed as a jealous, conniver... not a playful sadist. But rationalize it however you want. The same can be done for any character, really.

The game looks exactly like an evolution of all the themes Mortal Kombat has been expanding on... besides shitty gameplay, terrible new characters and crappy mini-games. They're now at the top of the gore chart again, their graphics are second to DoA's and their characters are again the most outrageous and fantastical out there.

This is the first Mortal Kombat to ever have technically sound gameplay... everything else is just an upgrade as far as I'm concerned.

Sorry to say it, but MK needs to do as much as it can to separate itself from its competition. It's gameplay is decent now, but if it were a new title with this engine, it wouldn't hold up. The more Mortal Kombat looks and acts like Virtua Fighter, DoA or Tekken... the less reason I have to play it.

I'm embracing this new MK and not looking back. Better gameplay, sexier girls, more gore... everything I want in a MK. I wipe my ass with Deadly Alliance, Deception and Armageddon.

I own Syco collectibles Kitana, Mileena and Jade statues. If Kitana was wearing that shit, I would never have bought her. That costume would be well at home in VF, Tekken or DoA... but not MK.

I've said all I have to say a million times now. I think I'm about done. Just stay crazy NRS. Don't hold back any of that shit.

Check out this guy's Kitana costume.



Sexy, yet still looks like a respectable assassin.

I hope MK continues in this new direction; away from the sex appeal.

It's just her MK2 attire with minor tweaks and no mask.

Christ, what an ignorant response.

The same could be said about ANY character's costume; "minor tweaks"

Did you expect her to wear a blue santa suit? Jesus....

Well, actually, no it's not.

Her MK2 costume was a form fitting lycra swimsuit with a black belt, blue knee high lycra flat shoes with black trimming around the tops, and matching elbow length gloves.

This is very clearly different, her whole costume on her body actually resembles a kung-fu gim whilst her gloves and boots have a lot more decoration on them than before with the black ribbon wrapping around them.

I like it. But I do think she needs a mask when she's dressed as a ninja, personally.

Presumably that's a criticism, but I think if you indulge to its logical conclusion, that's actually the point. Something more elaborate might be nice, but it doesn't take much to start to make palatable improvements.

What do you like? Hit the Toasty thumbs up on articles and forum posts for a quick response!

That actually looks a little weird to me. Maybe it's the hair.

Ignorant?
I'd expect DIFFERENT costumes like this

http://www.mortalkombatwarehouse.com/mkda/kitana/bio2.gif

or this

http://www.kamidogu.com/images/mkvsdcu/kitana_render.jpg


and no, the same thing cannot be said of every character.

Just compare MKDA's Johnny Cage and the one in mk2, trilogy or even MK9. Or Kano (with the exception of MK3 and 9) or anyone else.

No it's not a criticism, it's something obvious that speaks for itself.

just to compare.

Yes. Ignorant.


That's just an MK2 Kitana with a new pattern on her outfit. Minor tweaks.

He's just in his MK1 outfit and a belt around his waist. Minor tweaks.

I'm sorry. "Continues in this new direction?"

Mortal Kombat games have been steadily pursuing more revealing and oversexed outfits for their females since... ever.

What "new direction" are you speaking of? The completely unrelated Legacy series? Yea... no reason they should change their established direction.

As for the outfit... it's... boring to me and not sexy aside from the thigh-highs. The garb looks like a mini-apron and reminds me of Mai from Fatal Fury 2 in 1992. I'd prefer any of her other designs to that. Just looks too mundane.

And yea, the hair looks like 70's Wonder Woman style and it's certainly not ignorant to recognize that the costume is more reminiscent of her MK2 outfit than any of the others.

to blacksaibot: I've also posted a image of Kitana's purple attire, but you avoided it. Not very clever.

YES! Mai is who that makes her look like. And it is too plain.
