Said me always.

The dream would be to have him be voiced by either Keith David or Carl Weathers.

Jax can sit one out.

Luckily, Sonya's dialogue to Jade implies he is.

That doesn't imply anything, lmao. In fact, the most accurate "leak" so far has Jax in the roster.

You must really want Jax in. lol

That same leak also says Shang Tsung is in, but we've gotten nothing so far. I honestly trust the in-game dialogue over the leak.

Sonya Making A Fuss Over Jax Being Attacked + No Sight of Jax = Jax Probably Ain't In

That's my thesis. If I'm wrong, so be it, but the leak hasn't won me over on that.

I actually held out hope for her return, as I wanted her to be properly developed.

There's more pointing to desperation in you than denial in me. Since this discussion will go nowhere, however, I'm going to end it here. Neither of us actually knows whethe or not he's in. That is the truth, but feel free to lol at it. Peace.

I didn't say you didn't want Jacqui back, I compared you to the member that opened that "I'm pretty positive Jacqui isn't playable" thread out of wishful thinking and denial when her name had already been leaked by Steam.

Johnny Cage, Scorpion and Kano all have their classic costumes back so Jax better get his!

I hope so. Classic vibrant spandex outfits for characters is criminally underrated these days. That sounds like sarcasm but I'm being sincere. I'll take that over dull practical combat gear....Sonya, Jacqueline, Cassie, Takeda, Johnny.

If Jax was dead or critically injured, "attacked" is not the word Sonya would use. At most, it implies a conflict.

It might also be a reference to MK9, because Jax fought Jade in his story chapter.

Jax is a trilogy character and never a wasted roster spot. That said, I'd be open to letting him sit out for better characterization for Jacqui. If NRS chooses to make his assassination at the hands of Erron Black canon, it would give Jacqui some needed oomphf as a character. She would have an enemy, someone to hate, maybe even an obsession which would fracture her relationship with the Cages. It would give her something a little bit more than "Jax's daughter who Takeda wants to bone."

Just thinking outloud.

I wish you were on the NRS team. That sounds great. But considering the drivel NRS has been shitting out since 2011- the chances of good story telling and character development for a character like Jacqui is zero.

She'll continue to be Cassie's Hallmark movie diversity quota best friend and daddy's little girl.

That said, the only thing I really did like about Jacqui was her little romance with Takeda- that's something I'd actually like to see develop. Makes me even more annoyed that Takeda didn't make the cut...

Shang and Jax are highly likely in. The dialogue might be a reference to either an in game event or MK9. I don't.understand why he wouldn't be in.

Jax is more valuable to the series than D'Vorah.

I understand skepticism about Shang, Mileena & Shinnok, because we haven't seen any tangible proof to confirm them yet... but it baffles me that anyone would still doubt the leaks about the default roster at this point.

I hope Shang makes it in, and that in place of his traditional Kintaro transformation, we're treated instead to a transformation into Farmer Jax.

I would be surprised if Mileena and Shang aren't in the game.
