What do you think is the 'reward' at Challenge Tower's end?

#1 Posted by dbz1995 (4790 posts) -

I'm gonna say it's Chameleon-just a hunch. Would be pretty sweet, anyway.

No, it's striker

#3 Posted by Make_Me_Mad (3101 posts) -

Unlocks all the DLC.  If you already bought it, Shao Kahn laughs at you.

#4 Posted by OllyOxenFree (4973 posts) -

I don't think it'd be an unlockable character. Probably like a special video?

I dont know, Ed and his team are hyping it up a lot. Maybe it will be MK 1, 2, 3 HD ?

#7 Posted by Hailinel (24848 posts) -

It actually replaces all characters in the character select screen with Quan Chi.

#8 Posted by HadesTimes (804 posts) -

I dunno, probably just unlocks all the hidden stuff.  Or maybe it unlocks documentary of the making of the game.   I dunno, MK guys have a strange sense of humor.  It might not be anything but the coins and maybe Ed Boon congratulating you.

it'll be a teaser trailer for MKvsDCU 2

A picture of Ed Boon.
 
I don't know, I'll let you know when I get the game.

#11 Posted by TechHits (1378 posts) -

it could be alternate costume(s)

Playable Shao Kahn.

A 20 point achievement or a trophy (possibly silver).

You unlock Rain, and he's a giant stop motion sprite.

If it's anything as remotely awesome as the Hand Cannon in Dead Space 2, I'll be happy.

This seems more plausable seeing how there was a rumor a few months back that the trilogy would be released in HD. If it is that then going through the full 300 challenges is something that is worth taking.

Jackie Chan comes up and says that this is his game now, and then you will have to control every character in the game at the same time and fight Jackie Chan and his fists of fire, he also has three forms. 
If you beat him, you unlock him. If you lose, the MK part of the disc will be removed and replaced with "Jackie Chan in Fists of Fire", forcing you to buy a new copy of the game if you want to play more MK.

Why would I buy another MK if I just got Jackie Chan: Fists of Fire?
#26 Posted by SethPhotopoulos (5266 posts) -

An achievement.

If this was it... I'd die of happiness. That really would be an awesome reward and definitely worth the difficulty of trying to get. 
 
But I also was thinking of a secret character.  He says in this video that you will be able to tell when someone online has unlocked this secret. He also said you can buy your way pass the challenge to beat it, but it costs a lot of money (mk coins). Which makes me think even more so that it might be a character.

Jeff Gerstmann.

That would make the game incredibly unblanced.

The reward is...

#31 Posted by HadesTimes (804 posts) -

Ed Boon gave an interview where he referred to the reward as something someone could see in an online match.  So I'm guessing it's got to be a skin, or maybe a change to your online name or something like that.

#32 Posted by Bloodgraiv3 (2712 posts) -

Well from that interview apparently theres some characters you can unlock, so who knows? 
#33 Posted by Sanious (793 posts) -
@xhavoc86: That sounds way too underwhelming for how much they're hyping it up. I mean the achievement list itself had something cool as Cyber Sub-Zero, which is infinitely more cooler than that. Not saying it's BS, but I kind of hope it is. It comes off a bit tacky as well.

I am kind of calling BS
#35 Edited by Mr_Faraday (241 posts) -

Normally Id say that its bullshit too but if you look at the list of secret achievements the last one is called Best. Alternate. Ever and its suppose to be Mileena's 3rd alternate costume, and which would you think deserves to be the final prize? A cyber version of a character or an alt that the makers of the game consider to be the best ever. Now im not saying that naked Mileena would  be the best alt ever but I can guarantee there are lot of teens out there that would, so wouldnt it make sense to make that one the hardest to reach?
  
Whether havoc was joking or not its entirely possible he's right, hell this could even be one of the reasons that Australia banned it.
#36 Edited by Iron_Past (172 posts) -

I think an alternate costume like that would have shown up in the banning report, wouldn't it? On top of that, Tower Master is the achievement you get for finishing the Challenge Tower, so why would there be another Achievement tied to it? At the very least that seems to indicate that the reward is something else besides that alternate.
 
At any rate, I question why people are mining the demo stuff anyway. Aren't demos just special builds of the game (in this case one that's 8 weeks old)? Why would they compress the entire game into the demo and then send it out? Unless the demo is gigs of data large, that should send up some red flags; I mean, if I was a dude working on Mortal Kombat, I would know that people were going to data mine and would definitely put a ton a red herrings into it to mess with people. But who knows?

This is what I was thinking as well, also wouldn't it be on the rating? The rating only says 'Brief Nudity'. 
#38 Posted by Origina1Penguin (3501 posts) -

Maybe it unlocks a special finisher that any character can perform.

#39 Posted by IBurningStar (2173 posts) -

Unlocks Nudalities.

#40 Posted by Bestostero (2758 posts) -
@Iron_Past:   
Apparently a MK representative from Brazil confirmed that the data mining information is correct.

It also talks about 360 getting exclusive content rather than an exclusive character as per ps3  (Kratos) and a few other interesting tidbits.
#41 Posted by rmanthorp (3950 posts) -

I think you get the naked Mileen alt...

#42 Posted by NickBOTT (481 posts) -

It's a loooooooooong shot but my guess is it unlocks friendships, animalities, babalities and brutalities

A big static screen featuring all the MK Kharacters up to various hijinks and a banner that says: "CONGRATULATIONS!!" hanging above them.

Ed Boon will come to your house and replace all your C's with K's.

I hope it's HD versions of MK 1 2 and 3.

You win a free trip to NetherRealm Studios where a video of  Ed Boon plays telling you to get over here.

Make it CONGRATURATION and I'm sold.

Third Fatality for everyone. They already designed a third one for the ninjas, so why not just give it to everyone else and make it crazy-difficult to unlock?
