I've always thought Kitana is Asian-inspired. I love her new look too.

I was under that same impression. You don't have to look further than her MKX Default costume to see that influence.

That aside though, Kitana is not Asian or American or Latina... She's Edenian. So saying that they messed with her race (as posted above these posts) doesn't really make sense. Kitana, as a character, is not any race found on earth because she's not from Earth at all.

That being said, About the TV spot:

I think this is wonderfully done. Everything about this spot is perfection. Also LOVING how Kitana looks. That move she pulled when she avoided Scorp's spear... I wonder if that's going to be an actual move of hers where she can avoid projectiles. I hope so, as I think it would fit the agile/graceful aspect of her character quite nicely.

Well Done, NRS. Well done.

Kitana is always Asian inspired.. that's been obvious. It was only that she was an American actress in the original games which is why she looked the way she did.

Hait to tell you.. she's actually an Edenian - so if you have a problem with Asian people, can't imagine how you would feel about her being a race of another realm altogether

Sorry, Asian Kitana = #NotMyKitana. I'm still maining her, but her new face is annoyingly pulling me out of the immersion.

Whoever at NRS changed her race: I hate you with a passion!

If you don't want her, I'll have her :D
I love her new face. Best Kitana yet in my opinion.

I'd give a pat on the back to the person that designed her like this / cast the face model.

Is this the first MK game with the least new characters? If I count it right, there arre only 3 new. Geras, Kollectorvand Cetrion. Kronika is not counted because unplayable...

I would count Kronika personally, she is the main boss and players will be fighting against her.

LOL...people, man. It can’t be “yay, my favorite character got confirmed”, nah, it’s gotta be, “my favorite character got confirmed...AND I HATE IT!”. If it wasn’t her ethnicity, it’d be something else.

That, aside. Damn it, NRS is absolutely knocking this game out of the fucking park. This commercial is perfect.

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

Ignoring all the foolishness-

Kitana looks AMAZING. I didn't think she could look any better than she did in MKX but boy do I think MK11 will give it a run for its money.

They have truly perfected Kitana in the PS4 era. These are some of the most intricate and wonderful designs she's ever had.

Absolutely agree. Personally, especially if you’re a big fan of Kitana, I see nothing to dislike here. Honestly she’s never looked better.

I agree. I'm all about debates when they're relevant, but Kitana is Edenian, thus her look is malleable if we're being honest. Do any of us know the ethnicities within Edenia? No.

For the record, she looks awesome.

Well I actually kinda like this costume now. I really like the back of her top and her boots.

My complaints:

The eyebrow lines, Kitana should not have any lines on her face.

The bun, I know it’s kind of one of her signature things, but couldn’t they have done something a little more interesting with her hair, like a bun with a ponytail. Hopefully her other costumes will have cooler hairstyles. Her hairstyle in her MKX primary was awesome!

The headband I could take it or leave it.

I still think her MKX costumes were way better though (her primary costume and the tournament costume)

Same. I think you said it best, in another reply, when you said “They saved the best for last”. These last few characters: Kitana, D’Vorah and Frost are probably all going to be spectacular and that’s why they waited so long to showcase them. Especially where D’Vorah is concerned because she was revealed way back when Kano was.

I’m looking forward to this weeks kast, more so than any of the others so far.

I prefer Kitana's appearance in MKDA or MKG but I don't have any problem with her looking Asian at all, she's still gorgeous. Besides, she already looked kinda Asian in MKDC and MKX, it just wasn't that obvious due to less detailed graphics perhaps. Why are people reacting as if it's something new? I also love her costume, it suits her well but I don't see any similarity with her classic costumes as mentioned by some people here.

Wow, definitely sounds like him there. Good catch. Gotta say I really wouldn’t mind if Styker was in the game (even as DLC). After MK9, I grew to like Stryker and how he played. Perhaps we will see him. After all Cena is pretty much perfect casting.

@August: I would love a skin for Kitana that closely resembles her MKX primary. That look is all kinds of awesome.

Her MKX primary was great but I would also like some older Kitana's costumes to return. Particularly the ones from MKDA and that black outfit she was supposed to get in MK4.

No she didn't. And the "less detailed graphics" had nothing to do with it, Liu Kang looked unmistakenly asian in both.

Nintendo of America with a Switch version of the TV ad. Some differences in there and they even have the actor who helped ruin Scorpion's lore in MK Legacy.

Yes, she did. Not to mention some of her costumes were obviously Asian-inspired.

Why do you play it on Switch if you don`t mind me asking? Do you not have a PS4?
