I think NRS (Ed Boon specifically) are reluctant to use Kai, Fujin, Reiko etc. because they are partially (to some extent) John Tobias' invention and he's no longer associated with them. I don't think WB want to disrespect the origination of MK4 characters, so this would expain why they're hesitant with 3D era characters.

Source? Sounds like bullshit to me.

It's common sense when you ponder on it, so there is no source needed.

Doesn't make any sense and it's not even factually true:

By the time MK4 had come about, we were able to do a little bit more with the 3D graphics. I think that’s what ultimately sparked the transition for us. On that game, I actually didn’t do any of the specific modeling on the characters. There was another artist we had working on the game, but I was tasked with designing those characters.

Well initially my post was just a presumption, not a fact. I'm not perfect (case closed).

You know John Tobias created almost every other character from MK1 through MK4, right?

I will give an example. Not to be controversial but why do you think Noob Saibot is just referred to as Noob (from MKD onwards) then? Because Boon and Tobias are separated and Boon is tentative with using the surname (Saibot) out of regards for Tobias (this is probably why he put him with Smoke). Tobias had rights to the character too.

@DAHK9 He's always been referred to as Noob Saibot. Even in games where the announcer or lifebar only says Noob, his full name is referred to in his endings. It's not actually an issue.

I thought Noob's clone was Saibot though. That's like them being separate characters.

No, that was just what Ed Boon said he thinks the character as but in reality the clones are just that, clones. Noob Saibot is the name of the character.

Havik and Kai for DLC since they don't have to do with the current story but they have movesets you can explore (Haviks bizarre limb breaking and Kai being the true capoeira character he never got to be) that people would embrace.

Story relevant?

Ashrah/Sareena and Fujin I suppose

Um...Frost? Though I wouldn't shed a tear if she was a premier skin for Sub-Zero. There's really not a lot of 3D Era characters I want for this game considering its mere minutes after MKX and then back to the Past and other time shenanigans.
