MK X looks to 9 as 2 does to 1. It looks like X has a real serious, dark tone to it, very reminiscent of 2, which was my favorite. This is looking better and better.

Love me some Boon.

Wow, This is actually looking like a sweet game. Might actually have to pick this up after not buying a MK game since MK2 :o

Edited by Y2Ken

Interesting. It almost feels like a nod to the fighting styles from the 3D Mortal Kombat games, although it sounds as though this is more a case of just picking one for the whole fight. I like the options to mix it up though, seems like they've struck a good balance of different styles - one focused on offensive abilities, one for increasing mobility, and one which allows you to control space.

Definitely looking forward to trying the last one out and seeing how it functions in practice and how versatile it is. I loved learning Rachel in BlazBlue with her very trap-heavy style that really locks down your opponent's mobility because it felt so different from how I normally approach fighting games. I don't expect this to be quite so extreme as it's just an alteration from his normal style, but it should be fun to try out nevertheless.

I'm also just generally looking forward to playing some more MK. 9's story was a great time.

My guess is, this will play just fine on current gen consoles, right? Still can't wait for this especially after MK9 pretty much was my entry point to the fighting game genre. I just really hope they will have better tutorials, challenge modes and versus with CPU's in this one, since MK9 was severly lacking in modes that would have helped new players get into the game.

Geez' I can't wait for this!

This new variant mechanic is interesting, but I just hope it desnt feel like youre getting 1/3rd of a character.

The Boon has spoken. So does Richard Epcar, apparently, as Raiden.

I'm liking these character variations, although I'm cautiously optimistic. They might lead into variations that are never used in actual competitive play. I'm also not sure how many more different moves I have to memorize per character.

Make room for the Boon!

I hope to hear more about this character variation system. Seems like some complex stuff. Wonder how it'll all work out.

hot damn, this looks amazing!

Posted by TheAcidSkull

Well I'm fucking pumped! Thous are some very interesting moves right there, and the combat is so fluid! I love the fact that they separated each characters abilities into three different classes. This will make multiplayer so much more fun and interesting! I hope it's just not a 3 to 4 movie variation, I hope the feel of gameplay is completely different ( I know I'm hoping for to much but I just want there to be a significant difference)! Either ways, this looks awesome.

But Holy shit, Raiden will be a tough enemy! Thous fucking moves look really spammable o_O

Cool. Lots of great stuff to look forward to next year. I want Stryker to come back. I don't care if he is dead. He was one of my favorites from MK9.

I'm more interested in the new Khan.

Oh man that old school Raiden torpedo voice file.

Really interested in the variation system. If it's done well then it should make for some great tournament play. Being able to tweak a character style between offense, space control, and mobility/zoning between matches could alleviate bad matchups and cause some fun counter pick options during sets.

...if they are balanced and varied enough that is. Love the concept, but I need to see more of what other characters variants allow for.

Posted by ThePilgrums

It still bugs me that they mispronounce "rai", but what can you do.

Also, I wish the female character designs had as much attention paid to them as the male ones in this series. They always look way better to me. Guaranteed none will look as cool as this Kotal Kahn guy.

Posted by Rotnac

Seems like this new variation system will be a fucking nightmare to balance! Best of luck to NetherRealm. Hopefully they can pull it off.

In the arcade days of the 90s, my friends and I would shout "CHOPPIN' BROCCOLI" when on of us would land that move. :)

At the end I thought they weren't going to show the fatality. Then they showed the fatality, and it was cool. Thank you Netherrealm.

That Kotal Khan guy looks really sick, not really feeling the new Raiden-look though... he has electricity... in his hat?

I'd always thought Raiden said, "WHERE IS YOUR MOMMY?" whenever he used the voice file. This game looks pretty sweet from what's been shown.

The last one's story was so good for a fighter, really looking forward to this.

Of course Raiden has lightning in his hat. I'm not saying the character is based on the lightning dude from the movie Big Trouble in Little China, but he is based on the lightning dude from Big Trouble in Little China.

WELL... ok,that is a pretty convincing argument. Big Trouble in Little China. I now enjoy Raidens lightning hat.

OH SHIT SON

Broccoli is legit my favourite veggie!

Posted by UltimAXE

I'm with the people who are a bit skeptical about the 3 variants-per-character thing. Will it be balanced, or will there wind up being one definitive version of each character while the other two are total garbage? Will everyone ultimately feel gimped with a partial move list? I hope that it works out, because it does seem kinda neat.

Will get the game regardless, as I loved me some MK9. I hope that Smoke survived the massacre :(

Broccoli is pretty cool, but it can't hold a candle to carrots!
There's a reason Bugs Bunny is eating these suckers like there's no tomorrow, they give you super powers!

On another note: Fuck spinach! Nobody wants to turn into an one-eyed sailor with messed up body proportions. Just kidding! Spinach goes great with Gorgonzola sauce and pasta ;)

Edited by PoisonJam7

Uhhh, did Raiden say "Thunder butts of the sun!" @ 43 sec. or have I just been watching too many Dan/Drew QL's with all their talk about Space Butts?

I seriously can't hear anything else when I watch that section now... WTF is he actually saying?

So three distinct fighting styles? Man this thing is going to be a nightmare to get into. I just don't have the time anymore for some of these fighting games. :(

Posted by valeo

I'm a little bit confused by this - wouldn't it just be better if the character had all the moves from the 3 subsets? It's basically like having 3 different characters in 1.

Yes yes yes. Right into my veins... forget that. Get me a PICC line, put me out, and let it flow!

Like the different build idea, though I can't help but imagine that some are going to be seen as more powerful than others. I can't wait to see what the story mode looks like in this game, though.

Posted by JesusHammer

Kotal Kahn is the best fighting game character name I've heard in a while.
