What characters do you hope for?
05/30/2019 04:47 PM EST

Forgive me if this question has been popped before, but I am curious, who is it that you hope for? There have been rumors that have been circulating the web of who they are but Warner Bros/NetherRealm Studio have been keeping things mostly quiet. The only person confirmed so far is Shang Tsung, but everything else is a rumor. Some people want to see MK characters return while others want to see DC characters like Spawn. Some people want to see a mix of both. My hope is that it's no one stupid. I can picture Spawn making appearance but I could be wrong. One MK character I can see returning is Fujin and even Ed Boon mentioned an MK4 character is returning and Fujin is who I have my bet one. Thoughts?

I agree with that Max guy who does YouTube videos about this: Spawn Smoke and idk.

Those two two I would play

Spawn is all but confirmed at this point. So is Nightwolf.

If the leaks are true I'm not too thrilled about the line up, but if they're intentional head-fakes, the remaining I'd love to see are:

Reiko
Sareena (ffs NRS, just put her in already)
Nitara
Ashrah
Hotaru (if updated he could be bad ass)
Fujin (because LOL Fujin-fanatics, but I do want to see him in finally)

Well, you all got your Tremor now. Can we finally move on?

Havik, Reiko, Sheeva, Smoke, Hotaru, Fujin, Sindel.

It'd be dope to have three or four of those in the game.

This is clearly reaching but I really want to see my main, Tanya :P but other than that, I'm looking forward to Nightwolf & Sindel. As for guest characters, this one is hella far fetched but 2 months ago Bayonetta was rumored to be DLC, because Hideki Kyuga, the owner of Bayonetta tweeted "Bayonetta X Mortal kombat " but he is known for being a bigger troll than Ed Boon https://youtu.be/F0QKfCmY1O8

Smoke, Reptile, Rain, Ermac, those 4 something as MKX Triborg/Injustice 2 Ninja Turtles, would be cool, Sheeva, Fujin, Nightwolf and either Reiko, Ashrah (but in more demonic form), Havik or Hotaru.

It's still weird to me that they omitted Kenshi from this game seeing how next t Quan Chi he has been the golden boy since his introduction.

Characters I would have loved to have seen would have been, and I'm just going to pretend I haven't seen the leak list and just list the characters I would have like to have seen make the DLC roster.

Cyrax- One of my favorites.

Sheeva - Probably my first video game crush. Again that was a lot of boob for a young kid to take it. It made an impression. Plus I was introduced to her on the SNES so no weird slowed down groans.

Nightwolf - Happy my boy made it in. Hope he gets some cool costumes.

Quan Chi - It's kind of baffling that a power seeking manipulator like this didn't have a bigger role in the story.

Sektor - Again, another fave. Probably one of the most compelling villains in the series. (Old canon.)

Shujinko - This is not a joke I would love to see this poor guy receive some justice from his botched introduction in Deception. It wouldn't hard to make this character more compelling and cool from a cosmetic standpoint. Just a few tweaks and he turns into a badass warrior of the realms.

I'll tap out at six. That seems to be the number most people are leaving it at. I just wanna be cool like everyone else.

Aside from the characters we already know about (no, it's not only Shang Tsung, far from it), there are still some unknown ones from the 3 Kombat Pack. I would love to see Sareena and Ashrah, also maybe Nitara. I wouldn't mind Smoke, Mileena, Ermac, Rain and Tanya...

No one really. I had hopes for Smoke, Reptile, Rain and Mileena but Kitana's stuff and now Shang Tsung morphing into everyone pretty much confirms that they aren't coming. And that's fine. I'm happy with the roster and Shang Tsung. Not a huge fan of the rest of the confirmed DLC characters or leaked ones though except Sektor and Cyrax. And I'm very much against guest characters but if Terminator is in, I hope he is played and voiced by Arnold Schwarzenegger. Because of all the possible guest characters, Terminator fits in MK the most imo. But if it's not Arnold Schwarzenegger then it's not done right.

Other than that, I wouldn't mind Kenshi and Fujin.

Shang, Nightwolf, Sindel, Spawn... jep, I can live with that. For the next kombat packs I would like to see:

  • Sektor (my fav with Baraka)
  • Fujin (I just love element base kharacters)
  • Nitara (if they can revamp Skarlet, what can they do with Nitara?)
  • Havik (would be a great fun kharacter - breaking their own limps to avoid getting hit... awesome)
  • Cyrax (What Smoke like to say:" where Sektor is, there is Cyrax" ;-P
  • Takeda (has huge potencial story and gameplay wise)

Well I wouldn't be too sure. The ninjas being relegated to special moves for Shang doesn't exactly mean they don't have a chance. I would say one of them has a chance of being in this Kombat Pack 3. My money is on Reptile or Ermac because they already have a unique character model for him.

I would honestly prefer it be either Reptile or Smoke if I had to pick just two.

I wonder if they would do a T-1000 variation for the Governator or if that would be asking too much of NRS due to it requiring a lot of special detailing when it cam to Fatalities and would pretty much nullify crushing blows.

Not to sound cynical though but I doubt they'll get the Shwarts. If anything they'll take a voice clip from a film. Arnold is probably to expensive.

Shang, Nightwolf, Sindel, Spawn... jep, I can live with that. For the next kombat packs I would like to see:

  • Cyrax (What Smoke like to say:" where Sektor is, there is Cyrax" ;-P
  • Takeda (has huge potencial story and gameplay wise)

Not to be an ass but with how the game ended how much story potential could Takeda have at this point? I do think it was criminal that he and Kung Jin were left out of the story and roster because...why would they be. But that's just a whole other can of worms when it comes to the roster conflicting with the story.

I'll say this, I would love to see them flex their creativity when it came to Havik in this game. With the presentation of the fatalities and gore effects imagine how unnerving that character could be and how gruesome and demented his fatalities could be.

So far my hopes went out the door with Shang Tsung morphing into one fighter I wanted. Keeping with the same count as the kombat pack here is what I want:

Sektor, Cyrax, Cyber Smoke, Mileena, Rain and Reptile

Sounds like a dream list to me. Get the all stars back. It's still really weird to have a modern MK game without Reptile or Mileena.

Yeah. To me it feels a little incomplete when you have Kitana, Jade and not have Mileena. If you have at least 2/3 of them, in my opinion you should have all 3. Same thing as the original roster. If you include everyone from the original as playable fighters in this or any game, then all fighters from the original should be playable. So Reptile and Goro are the current and only missing fighters from MK1 not in MK11. We'll soon have Shang Tsung.

Since Sindel, Nightwolf and Spawn have been announced and the last two characters are guests, I assume we’re talking about season 2. This is already rumored to have been leaked, but what the hell...

Sareena: You have a game with Sub Zero and Noob, so why not put her in too? The whole demon aspect could be really fun from a gameplay perspective and her story could be awesome.

Mavado: I see him as MK’s Omega Red. Anyone remember how fun he was in X-Me: Children of the Atom? I love the idea of him using his ropes for combos, to get around the stage, to stab the opponent, etc. There’s a ton of cool stuff that could be done with him.

Takeda: It’s really kind of strange to me that he didn’t make the roster, as he was arguably one of the most fun new characters in MKX. I’d love to see what else they could do with him.

Kai: This guy was Capoeira before Eddy Gordo existed (or at least around the time he was first introduced lol). They could do a ton of cool stuff with his move list, and I’d love to see another chosen one enter the fray.

Reiko: How long does this guy have to sit on the back burner? A scheming general that had an awesome turn in the MKX comic... I mean c’mon. This guy has plenty of potential!

Nitara: She’s a vampire. I get it, there’s already a blood oriented character, but she could have tons of other moves that aren’t related to blood; transformations, pyromancy, hypnosis, use of familiars, and so on and so forth. I mean, they bothered to put a vampire in the game once. Why not use one when you can actually realize it’s potential?

Kira; I know she’s just an amalgamation of Kano and Sonya’s movesets in the 3D era, but this survivor/arms supplier could provide for a solid template with which a unique character can be built. I could see her being a great foil for Sonya. Maybe even better than Kano, provided she has the right backstory.

Dominik: What happened to this idea? Kano’s son could be extremely interesting from a story standpoint. Maybe he and Cassie get close and she finds out who he is, but he hates his dad due to the abuse he took growing up. Do he and Cassie stay together or does he lose her and his soul at the same time? Granted most of this would be told through an arcade ending, but still. I want to see this character!

Tasia and Hydro: Honestly, I’m a sucker for an obscure character. There’s really not much more to it than that. Each of them would do a nice job in passing out their respective faction, and I’m sure each could be easily worked in to a subplot, but I just love these kinds of characters if I’m really being honest.

Drahmin: Seriously, what’s a guy gotta do? He was a General in life, he’s an oni tormentor in death, and I still want to see what he could be after his MKDA ending and I know that’s not even canon. Having this demon, this monster of pure evil, could be pretty cool and kinda unique provided he’s not throwing flies as his projectile lol.

Sheeva: I’m really glad she made an appearance. And I’m happy to see the DLC rumors seem to be true.

Stryker/Rain: Rain is such an awesome character and should be DLC. His return in (2011) made him a very fun character to play! Stryker could use some more plot, but his gameplay was incredible in 2011.

Minor character so: I would love Tasia, Jataaka/Kia, and No-Face. They are part of the MK universe and should be represented!

3D Era: Tanya, Ashrah, Havik, Hotaru, Kai, Fujin, Reiko, Nitara, and Drahmin are great characters as well. It’s a shame that they are not being used because that era wasn’t as successful.

No guest characters: I feel like these characters waste a spot on the roster. Any a characters that are part of this universe. I hate cross-overs!
