Not getting pumped until I actually see a MK4-MKD fighter revealed. I refuse to get my hopes up.

Sareena,Fujin,Tanya and Reiko. Thats who I want to come back.

Since we have Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade's child in the game,maybe we will have Kano's son or something? To give her a new rival as cliche as it may be? I mean,out of all characters Kano is the only guy I can see aging so him having an offspring is a possibility.

Absolutely not. I do not want to freaking see Cassie in a story with Kano's son. Not only is it cliché, but it's boring as hell. It adds absolutely nothing original.

Alot of those later era characters were terrible

Shinnok
Quan chi
Tanya
Nitara
Dhramin
Havik

were all pretty good if they were included that would be more then enough, with Johnny and Sonya's kid being in the game those too should sit this one out.

Out of what isn't confirmed Reptile(human!), Raiden, Kang, Kung Lao, shang tsung are all must includes (not that they will be in it for sure)

Was anyone bothered by Ed Boon's remarks regarding Motaro? That he can't be in, because he wants bosses that could be playable? Why couldn't Motaro work as a playable character? The gameplay is clearly 2D, technical issues shouldn't be a problem. And if Motaro can only work as an unplayable boss, why the hell wasn't he in the last game then?

I'm just so tired of Motaro getting constantly left out for ridiculous reasons and laziness. MKA was the one game he should have been excluded from, but now he's ironically excluded from games where NRS shouldn't struggle programming his gameplay all that much.

According to Mythologies, Kuai Liang would be at least the SIXTH Lin Kuei member in history to use the name Sub-Zero.
There's also future offspring to consider. 'Course, Bi-Han or Kuai would have to come back from being dead to have one, or they could just give Frost a son and call it a day.
HOWEVER...I think we're overlooking the obvious possibility of multiple Sub-Zeros in the same game. MK9 did it by having Bi-Han and Kuai be alternate costumes for the same character. It's not like they couldn't do the same thing again.
I mean, for MKX Sub to be someone's son AND a Lin Kuei member, they'd have to explain who stopped the Lin Kuei from being a clan of robots ruled by Sektor. SOMEBODY came back. Somebody who has a style called "Grandmaster".

If they're gonna work on MK4-MKD characters it should be...

Shinnok
Sareena
Fujin
Tanya
Reiko
Bo'Rai Cho
Havik

And since we have Cassie Cage as Johnny's and Sonya's daughter...

Perhaps a new archenemy for Cassie, someone different from Kano.

And what of the ninjas like... Reptile, Ermac, Noob Saibot & Rain? And I would like to see Cyrax return joining the heroes and regaining his humanity.

And any thoughts for characters to replace the heroes....?
Liu Kang
Kung Lao
Kitana
Jax
Nightwolf
Stryker
Kabal
Jade
Smoke

Liu Kang - Kai
Kung Lao - some family member
KItana and Jade - Tanya
Jax - will probably be coming back, Boon and co do always find a way to get him back in the games
NIghtwolf - idk
Stryker - generic cop
Kabal - probably not
Smoke - will probably be back, or another cyborg

A Mortal Kombat 4 character = One MK 4 character = Quan Chi. Or Shinnok if they mean one that hasn't been re-imagined yet.

Man, screw these new characters!

Guess I should give up all hope on Tanya. sad

I'd just rather they not have 348574890578023 new characters, and bring in some veterans for balance.

Well, the roster is going to be about half new and then returning. More new than ever before, which was 10. So i'm expecting 12 (not 348574890578023 wtf..) With a finished roster before DLC, including secret ones, to be 28 final.

Can't tell if you're taking that number too seriously.

MKII had 10 new characters, discounting Kuai (Jax, Kung Lao, Baraka, Mileena, Kitana, Shao Kahn, Kintaro, Smoke, Jade, Noob Saibot.)

Deadly Alliance actually had 11 newcomers, though. (Kenshi, Li Mei, Bo' Rai Cho, Drahmin, Hsu Hao, Nitara, Mavado, Frost, Moloch, Mokap, Blaze.)

MKDA
1. Bo
2. Nitara
3. Frost
4. Drahmin
5. Mavado
6. Hsu Hao
7. Kenshi
8. Li Mei
9. Moloch
10. Blaze
11. Mokap

If you don't count SU or joke characters then it's only 9 but still. Unplayable bosses would make it 8 but since they were all playable in MKA I count them all.

Would love to see a strong, reimagined Shinnok, Reiko or Fujin. Havik would be very cool as well, or maybe someone else from the Chaos realm.

Yeah. Quan Chi will most likely be in this. He was in the last one as well.

Also

"Don't expect the notoriously relegated centaur Motaro to make a triumphant comeback any time soon"

Did he finally come out and say that the team really just doesn't know how to program a playable 3D centaur? That is, after all, why he was "neutered" in MKA and was killed off in a cinematic in MK9.

In regards to this mysterious MK4 character who will be returning, TRMK clarified that it's not someone who even made an appearance in MK9.

.@xxjonesy87 @Test_Your_Might The question was character not yet seen in MK9. Thata39;s the key.

— TRMK - Mortal Kombat (@TRMK) June 14, 2014

Following that logic, the only people from 4 and Gold who weren't included in MK9 were Tanya, Reiko, Fujin, Shinnok, Kai, and Meat, with the first three having cameos in one way or another, and Shinnok appearing at the end of story mode. As Meat is wholly a joke character, Kai is the only one of them to not have appeared in some manner.

Regardless, I'm going to assume that the cameos don't disqualify Tanya, Reiko, and Fujin.

Been a while since I've been around these parts. Miss this forum.

Anywhoozle, I am of the mindset that Fujin would be a very logical inclusion, considering the predicament Raiden got himself in.

Fujin was a logical inclusion for Deadly Alliance & Deception but he was snubbed by both of those games. Hopefully that's not the case here.
