I could go for Jade's and Johnny's, but that's about it.

They might as well release Mortal Kombat: The Movie The Game and have it compete with Street Fighter's piss-poor attempt.


It's just outfits, not actual gameplay or storyline changes.

I would like to see some like Sindel's i really loved that outfit from the movie and MK3 along with kitana mileena and jade but the rest were pretty spot on of the MK3 outfits in the movie so i guess i would like to see everyone get there MK3

Your kidding right? That outfit looked just as cheap as her MK3 costume
I'm sorry but in a movie I expect to see something more well crafted then spandex/lycra body suit

I wouldn't want Raiden to become a Billy Idol lookalike so no. Besides, it was Threshold Entertainment's vision on how the fighters should look like and the official MK team has their own visions.

The costumes in the first movie were dope...They would look a bit out of place with all of the fantasy based ones in the game.

But movie Shang looked badass, better than any costume he's had in the games.

When people use the words "dope" or "sick" to describe something, I never know if it's a good or a bad thing. It's usually the opposite of what I believe it means though...

Dope is good lol. I think they did a great job recreating the characters in a more realistic setting. Whereas in Annihilation, They attempted to stay closer to the game designs and ended up looking like cheap halloween costumes.

Christopher Lambert's raiden (a.k.a the first movie raiden for people who don't know) looked alright. I guess it could be a decent change from his same boring costume that never changes.

AS LONG AS IT IS NOT BARAKA FROM MK:A! His head looked so ridiculous in that

Believe it or not, people used to play the arcade version of that thing all the time when it was out around my area. I never thought it was that awful; the home versions though; which just skinned SFIIT, were horrible.


Anyhoo, there are certain ones I'd love to see: Raiden's being a big one. I'd say kano's, but they pretty much modelled Kano after Goddard's appearance starting with DA (so yeah, wouldn't mind a DA alt in this game) Most others are too similiar. Sonya might work. But the number one? Yes, yes, yes to Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa's trenchcoat.

I would to love see a alternate Raiden costume exactly like Lambert's. Plain, all-white Raiden is my favorite Raiden.
Shang's would be great too.

It would be cool for certain people, Kitana and Johnny Cage among them, their looks were actually very different from their in game counterparts, which was perfect, several others apply, but not all, like Liu Kang and Sonya's from the movies just look plain or too similar to other classic outfits.

This just makes me think how awesomely bad it would have been to have a Mortal Kombat The Movie: The Videogame like what they did with SF. XD

well look at kano, his modern look is based off the movie version, but hey if something works it works.

the only character i say is shang tsung, if they made him look like cary tagawa that would be so awsome.

Most of the movie costumes are just a damn t-shirt and slacks. I wouldn't turn down Shang in Tagawa's leather jacket, though...as long as he still had his goatee because by God, Shang Tsung has a goatee!
