I was worried about Jade's skin!

I hope that Jade is dark-skinned again, not white-skinned.

PLEEEEEAAASE!

I don't think you have to worry about that, bud. The skin color of characters has been about the only thing to remain consistent throughout the lifetime of this series. Besides, I'm not even sure it's been konfirmed that she's made the roster. I think everything's just speculation at this point. Although, I did see something about a leaked Steam achievement list, so I could be wrong there.

Looked more like a suntan rather than "dark-skinned" to me. Most likely a result of exposing herself in the Edenian tropical weather (she should've worn lotion to avoid risk of skin cancer, or are Edenians immune?). I think she'd be more Outworld/Earthrealm now though (Outworld + Earthrealm = Dreamrealm).

I guess her skin in MKX mobile is rather white, that's why the threadstarter is worried. Her face also looks very Asian there. Well, they actually keep changing Kitana's and Jade's apperances in different games and movies a bit too much, they are not consistent.

Eh, I blame both the power of the average mobile device and the people who created the textures for the mobile "port". Proper shading is virtually nonexistent in MK Mobile, probably because mobile devices lack the power of . For comparison, modern games run under the power of a PC game with a high-end video card versus a low-end video card differ greatly in graphic quality and, with a low-end video card, lighting and shadows suffer the most, so a lot of things that would look brown in the proper lighting look more beige.

In all honesty, having just looked at screenshots of MK Mobile's Jade versus MK9's jade, the skin tones are very similar. The same goes for her skin color in MK Armageddon, but she appears to have more a tanned look or that of a Middle Easterner or someone of Spanish descent, which are the first pair of nationalities that come to mind as the closest comparison to the skin tone of characters like Tanya and MKII/UMK3 Jade.

I dunno, maybe living in the gloomy realm of Outworld under Shao Kahn's rule for hundreds of years led to a more European skin tone and Midway/NRS decided that her skin color should reflect that. Kitana's pigmentation has been consistently European and maybe that's because she was raised by Shao Kahn and has lived her entire life in Outworld. Who knows? Everything can be explained away so long as you're not looking to create an issue out of nothing, heh.

By the way, the movies are so not a part of the official MK storyline, so the appearances of the characters featured in them aren't even relevant.

Her best look was MKX mobile. I feel like Jade is the only character skin color can play both either way. She look good dark or light

I'm glad to see her that she is definitelly dark-skinned! :) But i can say she has olive skin.

And Jade has 3 variations: GREEN MONSTER, IT AIN'T EASY, WITH ENVY

I like green monster costume and 2 other alt costumes are awful.

I absolutely love the second costume with the hood. I actually really like how the brown goes with the green. I am also assuming with the color swap variations she’ll have a green hood and robe... gonna look amazing.

Her 3 customization slots got be the glave, bo staff and mask right?
