The new logo is not bad, but I prefer the older of the two. For me the old one was aesthetically pleasing to the eye because of how it flowed and looked centered design wise. The new one looks like a combo between the old symbol and the one on the red banners in mk legacy.

Does anyone else find that the new logo actually looks like the "old" logo? By which I mean, the in-game logo from MK1? Like on the character select screen, for example?

I like it, as minimum as the change may be.
As Mr. Sloan always says, there is no "I" in team, but there is an "I" in pie. And there's an "I" in meat pie. Anagram of meat is team... I don't know what he's talking about.

Another theory but maybe 'who's next' refers to the next champion. I'm guessing the new champion will be a lot more angrier, and aggressive than the calm and peaceful-looking dragon on the left.

Either that or Liu Kang survived, and he's one hell of a pissed off dude in tights.

And thinking that the Dragon Bite was his signature fatality, completely possible.

I think the people who don't like the new logo as much as the old one will change their mind once they see it on the cover and trailers. I get the feeling the video game cover will look amazing and badass. It will also be cool once we see how it looks when shown in the trailer next to the Mortal Kombat name. The main reason some of you like the old one better is most likely because of how much you are used to it.

I've seen a lot of people actually really despise the logo and it honestly dumbfounds me. I love it, but to be honest I don't really care all that much lol. It's all about the gameplay. Mortal Monday is definitely gonna be taking its sweet time. tongue EDIT: First post in quite a while lol. Feels gooooooooooooooooooood

Totally loving the new logo.

It's sleeker, more aggressive, and refined.

I prefer the old logo but it's not a dealbreaker. It's not like they put sunglasses on the dragon or anything.

I like the old one better because it's an objectively better designed piece of art.

The old dragon had the look of a 3-dimensional head that was turned slightly sideways, with the shape of two eyes and two nostrils and the eyebrows and nose ridges matched in number.

This one still has two eyes and nostrils, but only one eyebrow and nose ridge. It just doesn't match up. They could have kept the thinner "angry" eye and had two eyebrows and I wouldn't complain, but that dented-looking forehead just bugs me and I'm sure it always will because I'm not the kind of person who forgets or lets things go.
I mean, it's not a big deal, I'm not gonna go crazy about it and boycott the game or some shit. But really, when you already have a list of creative grievances with the series and don't trust this studio's vision anymore, it's just one more thing, they all add up.

Think of it this way, if this new logo was the logo we had before the old one and they changed it to the one we had before this new one then people would probably be acting the same exact way just with the roles reversed.

People would be arguing that the last one is better than the new one and how it looks better as a 2D image than a 3D image. Hopefully you all get what i'm trying to say.

Wooo! Cyber Dragon!
Nah.. I love the new logo, I also love the old logo, and all the logos in between. All I'm concerned about, as I said before is gameplay. Gameplay aside; however, the game aesthetics will be much more important to me when they start revealing characters. I was happy with pretty much all of the costumes in mk9 though. Especially the mk3 Subby! grin

My favorite logo was an unused one for MKDA in the krypt. It was described as being an evolution of the dragon logo..

I hope the simpler approach to this new one is reflected in the character design....

Here is the link to my altered version of the logo on DevianArt page.

http://ultimate-savage.deviantart.com/art/Mortal-Kombat-new-logo-edit-457501169

I have tried to keep the look of the old original but still have that strong look of the new logo.

MK9 designs were already simplified too much. After it, simplier designs would be MK1-MK2 style garbs. I fan of retro, but its 2014 and I obviously prefer something more elaborated.
Personally, I hope for the return of the MKDA-MKA style. Not everyone were perfect in those games, but when they were good, they WERE good.

Absolutely agreed. I hope a lot more detail and care is gone into character design than MK9.

I still hate what they did with Kitana in that game.

The eye in the new logo is a tear drop! I sure hope Liu Kang is not in MKX. Whom ever said the Dragon Bite (Chomp) is Liu's signature finisher, you are wrong! His signature Fatality was his Fatal Uppercut.
