Who should a MK:SM2 be about (if we get MK:SM2)?

Should it be the monks again? Scorpion and Sub-Zero? Other characters?

My reaction to the former two: Yawn. I'd rather it be other characters. So many possibilities, such as:

Kitana, Jade and Mileena, when they were all assassins for Shao Kahn. They should ignore Mileena being born recently just for that game. Other assassins like Skarlet and Reptile could be hidden characters with their own campaigns.

Baraka. That ritual of blood mentioned in his MK9 bio would be interesting to explore.

Erron Black, beginning in the old west. He'd eventually discover Outworld.

A Special Forces remake closer to John Tobias' original vision, or at the very least one that features Sonya as a playable character. Personally, I'd like Hsu Hao in the game as a playable character, back when he was infiltrating the special forces.

Kabal and Stryker, showing how Kabal managed to leave the Black Dragon and become a police officer, and revealing whether or not Stryker knew of Kabal's criminal past. Alternately, Kabal could be playable in a MK:SF remake and get his own campaign.

Sareena, also featuring Jataaka, Kia and Ashrah (all as playable characters, preferably), showing us their origins, and how they each ended up as Quan Chi's assassins.


I could go on. But I guess we can look forward to an adventure where we'll keep hearing "Get over here!" over and over.

I think the obvious is a Scorpion/Sub-Zero game but I'd love the female assassin trio, Kitana, Mileena & Jade.

If it happened, it would be Scorpion and Sub Zero.

Personally, I'd like to see a game pairing either Sub Zero and Noob Saibot or Quan Chi and Shang Tsung.

Kitana and Jade. Then similar to how Scorp/Sub were unlockable, give us Mileena and Tanya. Lol

If it's MK SHAOLIN MONKS 2 then it needs to be about a shaolin monk or two... stands to reason.

So obviously it needs to be about Kai. He can team up with Kung Jin, rescue the NR revenants, meet Fujin & palz along the way, and have a merry ol' day of it.

How about a prequel about Jax taking on the Black Dragon. That would work.

Definitely Kitana, Mileena, and Jade. Especially since SM clearly work on a different timeline.

I'd rather have a Mortal Kombat: Mythologies that follows a different character.

Johnny Cage and Mokap.

Just kidding.

But in all honesty, I'd want it to be about Liu Kang and Kung Lao again, maybe going over the events of MK3, as Shaolin Monks did with MK2.
hey

Either Shaolin Monks 2, or Fire/Ice, nothing else would work, especially not a game focusing on any of the female characters.

I think that we will have it at a certain point.... maybe WB montreal ?

I liked their take on Arkham characters much more than Rocksteady.

They should turn MK Defenders of the Realm into a video game where you can select any of the main cast... but we can't forget Kung Lao like that stupid show did.

Kang and Lao should still be the "primary" characters for the game so it can keep the MK Shaolin Monks title.

Obviously Johnny Cage and Raiden would be a secret/hidden characters.

Yes, this would be a big FUCK YOU to MK2011's storyline, and rightfully so.





OH WAIT A MINUTE... That's never going to happen because of that stupid ending they had with Quan Chi finding the amulet. So I guess this whole idea just got butt raped before I could finish it.

I think focusing on the Lin Kuei would be a good idea. Either Sektor and Cyrax before/after the cyber initiative or Smoke and Sub-Zero before the cyber initiative. I always thought the cyber initiative story was very compelling.
