About Subzero in this game
06/13/2010 01:41 PM EDT
Subzero is one of the most iconic characters as we all know, and one of my faves. He looks much improved in the game.

I'd like to point out that I really like the ice-ball animation from the trailer. It looks like he's creating a little portal and when the ice forms, it looks convincing enough to look like ice.

The ice sword impale move looks like it will be a signature throw. Very cool indeed!

I hope his slide returns, and as well as icy teleport from MKvsDC.

Now I'd like to point out his appearance. The cryo mask is very cool and maybe it's just a place holder, but it doesn't really go with the rest of his revamped costume. That mask looked suiting with his previous makeovers from MKvsDC and Deadly Alliance, but I just hope they'd come with something fresh for the latest games look.

Proce's drawing of Subzero for MK9 looked very sweet and I was hoping they'd make that his primary look. Maybe as an alt?

Oh and last but not least, definitely bring back his spine and head rip fatality. From the E3 banners for MK9, it shows subzero's sillouette ripping off his enemies head so it looks like it's back. I just keep thinking about how Kratos rips off Helios' head in God of War III, and hope the animation for subzero's fatality will be similar. Show some struggle to make it look realistic and the impact will be amazing.

Im willing to bet that his grab came from the evolution of the fighting system and somebody saying "How can we integrate the Kori Blade into the gamepaly without ahveing multiple fighting styles?". Having that get created and used on spot simply blew my mind. Awsome Idea.

Id Expect his mask is just a palceholder although I wouldnt complain if Scorpion and subzero's masks remained the same. Scorpion looks ebtter than ever.

Looking forward to them both very much in MK9

It's on banners hanging in the convention center.

I'd personally like him to have his original mask from MKvsDC. Didn't like that they changed it. I'd really like him to have an alternate where you see his face again.

I'm glad I am not the only one who hopes Fatalities are similar to the killings in God of War.

Mask is just a placeholder, it's the same one he had in MK vs DC, which started out looking like this before becoming what it did



Hard to see, but completely different

His freeze move will include huge damage scaling. I hope we get his slide back, and I hope it actually trips the opponent up. Really its only been useful as a combo ending move because its so unsafe.

You know what move needs to come back? The ice clone! It was so awesome! It made jumping a lot less risky. It really gave you a safety net.

He doesn't need his teleport or his ice nugget thing. He's fine without them

His MK3 costume is a must as an alt

That ice impale throw was so cool. I hope has more constructs.

I doubt the sword stab will be his signature move. It's just one of those moves designed to look a little more gruesome than previously conceived.

Remember the Sword stabs from deadly alliance?
