Kahn playable?

#1 Posted by Shakezula84 (443 posts) -

Is he playable in the game? I was seeing a gameplay video of the Vita version and they performed his fatality. He hasn't been announced as an exclusive so have I just not unlocked him yet in the PS3 version?

He's not playable in the console version.

Did they perform a fatality with him or was it viewed in the trailer? Because if you lose to him in arcade mode he'll occasionally do a fatality on you.

Also might be part of the new challenge tower challenges.

Definitely not playable in the console version, though he (as do all the boss characters) has two fatalities he can perform.

This has made me want to play MK again! Such a shame that my save got corrupted! :(

I still think it's weird that his name isn't spelled Shao Khan. Maybe he didn't have enough wrath.

@MooseyMcMan: Khan would be pronounced different.

Fuck Kahn. He was the worst part about playing the single player as you had to cheese him to win and that's never fun.

@FTomato Yeah they were showing the touch screen fatality, so the finger was sliding across the screen. It was from Destruction.
@Sammo21 I just fired whatever projectile I had over and over. Even Sub Zeros ice ball causes damage on the second it.

On the Vita he is playable in a few of the new Bonus Challenge Tower missions. In one you play as him and another you have to do his fatality using the touch screen.

He was playable on the consoles with hacks, they were no different from any other character just decided not to put them into the game for balance reasons. For that reason I wonder if he (and Goro/Kintaro too) will be unlockable or not on the Vita. It's been rumored but no firm details yet.

Khan IS playable in a limited sense though. In one of the tower missions you do get to control Khan. At least I'm pretty sure its been awhile since I've played. I do know %100 that you do get to play as Goro in one of the challenge tower missions. Also all 3 bosses have two different fatalties but they only use them as their discretion so...not very often.

Any word on the price?

I hope he's not playable because he would easily be the cheapest character in the game.

Correct. You get to play as them even more on the Vita's new Challenge Tower.

MSRP is $39.99, I'm wondering if the PSN only price will be cheaper but I haven't got confirmation on that.
