Sub Zeros Myth, Special Forces, Shaolin Monks: Create your next game
02/22/2005 11:23 PM EST
I thought about that a couple of seconds ago... and I wondered...

1st. Sub Zero has enough potential to have an Adventure, so they made MK Mythhologies.
2nd. Jax, Sonya.... had enough potential for making a Special Forces game
3rd. Liu Kang has enough potential, so they made a game for him and his sidekick Kung Lao (a little bit more of a sidekick in MK Storyline).

This thread's purpose is to throw ideas of games that could be made starring a MK character.

---------------


My Idea:

I think It would be amazing if they'd make a game for Kitana. A RPG game. You start looking teenage, you learn various martial arts and weapons over thousands of years then you become the perfect assassin. You do missions with Jade, Mileena, some Shokans, some Tarkatans, Shang Tsung, Reptile..... and one day the Mortal Kombat begins and you have to face different people, and then your previous allies become bosses. Some like Jade, would turn on your side when defeated, and some would be true bosses. And this could blend in with Sindel's ressurection story, the shokan alliance, Liu's death and her brainwashing and finally, this would conclude with MK7 story.

That would be awesome !
She'd gain multiple fighting fans, and various weapons (projectiles and others) and you could put points in the stats you want. This could play either a la Diablo or either a la Final Fantasy.

Shang Tsung...

Start out when he was still human (or Earth created), and go through everything he went through up until his alliance with Quan Chi.

So u learn how Kahn found him and taught him the black arts, like how to steal souls and morph etc. Then using those skills in the Mortal Kombat tournament, winning 9 straight, then losing to Lao. Being banished by Shao Kahn, meeting up with Goro, leading him to 9 straight titles including stealing Great Kung Lao's soul (where there could be some hint that that is how he learnt about the map to the Temple of Elements in MKMSZ). After Goro loses, seeing Kahn's wrath, and then convincing Kahn to give him ANOTHER chance, by getting the earth fighters to come to outworld, then helping in the earthrealm invasion...

I just think if they really expanded his storyline / mythology, he could be the focus of a great game. So many plots and sub plots, as he is one of the most interesting and well developed characters. Only thing I could see as being a problem would be is that we might already know too much about his story, but still - thousands of years have passed in his story, more than enough to make it an awesome game...and everything up until he teams up with Quan Chi, and perhaps even up to the end of MKDA. Where there could be multiple endings in terms of who you fight in the final battle depending upon what you did or didn't do earlier in the game. Perhaps one direction leads you to end up fighting Kung Lao, another leads you to a fight with Kenshi etc.

That would be amazing: He could learn many skills from many characters throughout his thousands of years !! And he could morph into anyone you want against anyone you battle: strategy would be needed ! That is a GREAT idea too !

Actualy that would be really cool, an awesome idea. After you defeat someone you gain the ability to morph into them and fight as them in the game, but you'd have to have stolen their soul after you defeated them. I'd love to use Great Kung Lao to kick some ass in the MK worldtongue

My idea?

Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero - Ice and Shadow (kinda lame, i'm working on it)

The game would chronicle both Sub-Zero brothers. The intro would show the dramatic battle between Sub-Zero and Scorpion during Shang Tsung's tournament. Sub-Zero is killed and sent to the Netherealm, much to the pleasure of Quan Chi and Shinnok. As Sub-Zero is confronted by Quan Chi and Shinnok, the intro cuts away to Sub-Zero's younger brother, who is mastering his inherent power of Cryomancy. He is informed by clan Elders that his brother has been killed, and he shall now take on the mantle of Sub-Zero.

Now, the game follows two paths:

Current Sub-Zero - the game will follow his ascension through the Lin Kuei...the trials he had to overcome, his missions, his participation in the MK2 tournament, his confrontation with Scorpion, the betrayel of the Lin Kuei and automation process, the battle with the cyborgs during MK3, etc...leading up to his current involvement.

The game would alternate chapters, following the story of:

Noob Saibot - Sub-Zero, now in the Netherealm, has to make a choice. He will either join the Brothers of the Shadow, or he will suffer eternal torment at the hands of Quan Chi and Shinnok for his blatant defiance. Seeing an opportunity, Sub-Zero accepts the offer to become a member of the Brotherhood of Shadow. The game would then chronicle his transformation into a wraith, his ascension through the Brotherhood, his involvement in the tournaments, etc etc...leading up to his acquisition of power in the Netherealm and confrontation with his younger brother.

It would give both characters a chance to shine, and give Noob Saibot more depth than ever, now that we know who he is.




and for the thousandth time, I was right all along, ever since I started saying 'Noob is Sub-Zero' since '99 grin

I think it would be cool to have an adventure game starring Shao Kahn, having him battle his way up to being Emperor. Maybe instead of having a game playing through his history you have him have to fight to get back his throne after what hapened with the Dragon King and the Deadly Alliance. Kahn goes out to take his revenge on all those who betrayed him and failed to remain loyal. This would be interesting for a couple of reasons, one you are playing a big bad ass who goes through a storyline tearing apart enemies, even give him his big ass war hammer to lay waste to his adversaries. Also, you'd get a deeper introspective of Shao Kahn and get to understand a bit more of his personality (though I think you'd have to have another game development team head it up like they're doing with Shaolin Monks because after seeing Shao Kahn in Konquest Mode in MKD I'm beginning to think Ed Boon and co. don't know their own character that well). Course the biggest intriguing thing about it is you are playing a game as the villain, no two sides about it, not like Sub-Zero who was an unknowing bad guy just being manipulated, you would be playing the end all evil of MK fighting the Earth Realm warriors and those who defied you. Imagine Shao Kahn in a position against almost everybody and you'll get my idea.

Aside from that, perhaps a game that explains a bit more on Reptile's race I think would be interesting, develop Reptile's character more cause we don't know too much about him and by the time we get insight into his thought process he has already deevolved into an animalistic state. Anyway, just my ideas.

I hope Shalin Monk has the MAIN TRIO playable: Liu Kang (check), Johnny Cage and Sonya.

As for new games:

Special Forces:

Sonya and Kenshi as the main characters. Others involved could be Johnny Cage, Rayden, and of course, the black/red dragon, Shang Tsung, etc.

The game could happen in the time of Mk4-MKDA-MKD.

Edenia/Outworld:

While it would be nice to see as main Shao Kahn, Mileena, Kitana and others I dont see the point since Shaolin Monks will practicly have this subject.

I would like a game that focuses on the entire realm of Mortal Kombat. In a sense it could be like Star Wars Knights Of The Old Republic in terms of making choices that determine the fate of your character.

The game would split off into many paths, one leading you can choose in either

Joining The Lin Kuei

Joining The Special Forces

Joining the White Lotus

Joining The Black Dragon

Joining The Red Dragon

Joining The Brotherhood Of The Shadow

Each decision you make determines your alliance, making you good, neutral, or evil.

You will just like in Konquest meet each character ever included in a Mortal Kombat game. Which means 2 things, you can gain alot of allies, or have alot of enemies.

Also, characters that you come across and that you influence will in a way change the story. Thus having a new ally join your ranks, or creating new enemies for you. You will have an influence meter on each of the characters and depending on how you treat them will have them obey you, but if you treat them harshly they could betray you and you could loose stability in your party.

Well, I've said enough, if any of you guys would like to expand on this idea please feel free to do so, I would love to read what your ideas are upon this basic thought of a potential Mortal Kombat adventure game.

Also, the game will not be played as an RPG, it would be similar to shaolin monks with alot of RPG elements, Mortal Kombat will have alot of fighting implemented in it, no turn base options.

Awesome. Fucking. Idea.

That would be the best non-fighting game based MK game ever.

I love the idea. It would rock to actually see that happen. We can only hope excellent ideas such as this happen in the future. grin

Joining The Lin Kuei: Sub-Zero and Frost as the main.

Joining The Special Forces: Sonya and Kenshi as the Main.

Joining the White Lotus: Kai and someone else (since we already have Liu and Kung)

Joining The Black Dragon: Kano and Kabal as main.

Joining The Red Dragon: Mavado and Hsu Hao as main.

Joining The Brotherhood Of The Shadow: Noob Saibot and Quan Chi as the main.

It's just me, but I'd like a game "a la Knights of the Old Rep" but I hate created characters.... I'd like if you could choose the character you want, and then each of them would have a different path, but such a game would be like 40 games in one !! (if there's around 40 characters), but it would be the greatest game ever in Video Games history...

for example :

you choose Shang tsung, you live his history, meet the characters he met, and then his story ends around MKDA

you choose Kitana, you train during 10 000 years to become an assassin until you meet Liu Kang and the story ends in MKD

you choose Kabal, your story expands from MK3 to MKD

et cetera
