Are they bringing back “friendship” finishers?

I honestly wouldn't be surprised to see something like this return. Judging from color's alone, they seem to be going a more colorful route with MK11 that lines up a bit more with MK9 and given that were past the 25th anniversary of the series, I suspect they will be pulling out all the stops this time around and really hitting on some nostalgic feelings.

I hope they end with a kill like Kitana giving you a cake but it blows them up

Back in the '90s I remember reading a fan-project called "MK: Bloodlines" (or something like this) and the very '90s-esque name they gave to this Finished was "Friendship... NOT!" It basically worked just like that - Kitana baked you a cake, but it would poison you. Baraka would give you a present, but it would explode. Scorpion would give you a doll, but it would then Toasty you. Basically all the classic Friendships but with a twist ending.

Would something like this ever actually happen for real, with MK11? God, I hope so!

I would love to see them evolve the Friendship like they did Babality's.

I hope not. Would much rather see Hara Kiris return.

I genuinely hope so, Friendships with a twist also sounds super awesome and Hara Kiri's can take the place of Quitalities imo

My favorite thing about friendships was the way the announcer would say it, lol, it was short but really gave the impression of "Wtf is going on!?"

Scorpion wins! Friendship! Friendship??

I hope they make a comeback. It'd be a nice addition to online play, making friendly matches seem that much friendlier. Hara-Kiris might not be a bad idea, either. Could limit post-match teabagging (as lovely as it can be to return the favor in excess during a runback), decreasing the number of rage quits from opponents, which, along with disconnects, were one of the more annoying aspects of online play. Basically, Hara-Kiris would increase the popularity of the MK11 because newbies would have the option to completely abstain from any unnecessary taunting after a match is lost should they be able to input the button sequence in time.

This really is the best possible outcome, should they bring them back.

You work with what you got...not what you hope for.

I would be so happy if they brought friendship back! They aren't going to do it though. There's no way.
