    I may not be the biggest Liu Kang fan but the man had the culture to bring back Kenshi and Stryker in his new timeline and I appreciate that

    I really like the new angle they're approachimh Kitana and Mileena's story from. It's literally a fresh restart now with Kitana being the paragon good girl she's always been while Melina is struggling and being driven mad by her 'disease'. Im getting a whiff of tragedy coming this way

    • Derrick Haggard
      Derrick Haggard 3 months ago +24

      Same but given there's supposed to be altering paths for the story based on the choices made we could get the opportunity to have Mileena actually be on the good side depending on the choices made.

    • Kolm Manison
      Kolm Manison 3 months ago +27

      @Derrick Haggard good guy hero Mileena would be something to see but I think they gotta earn it. There gotta be some conflicts between her and Kitana maybe leading up to a breaking point before they make amends like Gamora and Nebula in the MCU

    • fish !
      fish ! 3 months ago +4

      I'm hoping it's more of a conflict between her Edenian and Tarkatan DNA, rather than simply a disease. Feels like that'd be a fresh take on her dual nature, to me at least.

    I'm happy they moved the intro dialogues into the loading screens. That way, people can't skip them, and we'll have something to see while waiting for the fight to load.

      @Video Games Ruined My Life - Multi-billion? No it isn't, stop making shit up. MK is nowhere near to earning the amount of money to facilitate your made-up numbers. MK11 made $500mil. That's mainly due to casual fans playing the story mode and that's about it - the online is ALWAYS dead a few weeks after an MK release. But, just because it sold 15mil copies, that doesn't mean it's a good game. 'Tekken 7' sold the same amount, and it's by far a better game than MK11 on ALL fronts. MK games have are gimmicky to suit the casual gamer audience.

      The intro dialogue this time act as a loading time before the match. It is genius. Also by doing that, we really can hear what they talk since you can't skip it coz is a loading screen at that time

    The transition into kombat, the klassic outfits for the kameos, JOHNNYS HOUSE AS A STAGE, There's so much in here that goes under the radar and im here for ALL OF IT

  • Neoxon
    Neoxon 3 months ago +54

    While the character models aren’t a huge leap over MK11, the stages look phenomenal. Also, the fact that the Kameos seem to be the classic versions of characters makes me think that will be the differentiating factor between those & the playable versions.

    The combos are just amazing, and I am in love with the cameo fighting system. The stages are very good, especially JC’s background stage. One thing it got me is the cameo fighters can do a fatal. Ed just downright outdone himself here.

  • Crescent Fresh
    Crescent Fresh 3 months ago +15

    The stages are already among my favorites. Considering that it's not a notable step up from 11's graphics, they made up for it in the art design. Absolutely stunning.

      Daniel F 3 months ago +208

      ​@red_crow584 yes but there's a bit where they clash and talk rather than a loading screen and then there's the match intro dialogue and then it starts

    • rudimusawesomusmaximus
      rudimusawesomusmaximus 3 months ago +245

      Netherrealm just learned to implement things from previous games. Merging the Injustice Clash with beginning intro dialog to do the loading screen was smart

    • Grumpy old troll

      Intros look shorter do to them it’s just two lines rather than 3. But we get the match loading one to.

    hellbent 3 months ago +17

    i genuinely love the fact that they are making scorpion and sub zero brothers and im glad they added some color to the series it is a nice new touch and i think there will be more to come and goro returning was something i was praying for even as a cameo character there are still a few more characters on my wishlist but there is no doubt in my mind that this game and tekken 8 and sf6 are going to go crazy this year

    Sir Bone-Head 3 months ago +42

    I'm very interested to see who they're adding, and what kind of story this is going to have. This being a new timeline feels like it frees them up a bit in terms of writing. I was kind of hoping they'd go all the way back to the first tournament with the Great Kung Lao, but oh well.

    Currently, my only disappointment is that Steve Blum isn't voicing sub zero. Visually looks amazing and I'm very happy to see larger meterless combos making a comeback. Still a bit skeptical, gotta wait til beta/release to really get a feel but it's looking promising.

    • Duncle
      Duncle 3 months ago +22

      Steve Blum isn't voicing sub zero because its not Kuai Liang. It's Bi-Han so Sean Chiplock (Noob) is voicing him.

  • cosmosofinfinity
    cosmosofinfinity 3 months ago +2

    It's really interesting seeing Raiden as a normal mortal with regular human eyes. Imagine someone calling Raiden inexperienced, and Raiden taking it on the chin! Giving so much time to let Ed Boon talk about the game is something I wish we got more of from these sorts of shows, just get into the nitty gritty to express the intent of the game and its vision in specific ways, not just PR ad speak. The flow of the fight choreography also seems even more reminiscent of martial arts movies

    Air combos remind me of the air combos from Armageddon. Also I like the consistency of the Kameos assists. Not only are they klassic versions of the characters but the moves they're doing are from the old games. Notice Goro punchwalk from MKX and Strykers kameo is his X-ray from MK9. The other ones are obvious.

    • Soul93Taker

    Idk if it just me but I like the heavy realistic movement it makes the game feel more idk real like the blows just feel like weight behind those attacks. Example like strong heavy characters such as goro actually feels like someone to be cautious of. Imagine If he was playable.

    I, like most think this looks amazing and definitely want to see more! I want to see how many different modes, if any they will bring to this. Konquest? Tag? Puzzle? Chess? Etc. Also will there be new alities? Returning animilaties, hara kiris, stage fatalities etc? I am hoping for a jam packed MK1. What has been shown so far has been super impressive.

  • George Pivey
    George Pivey 3 months ago +2

    Yes, the artstyle is great. The more grounded minimalistic approach works since it preserves a sort of 80's kung-fu movie aesthetic across the board that is also very distinctively MK. Big ups. We still have remnants though of the overdesigned non-sensically video-gamey elements from 9 and 11 like Skorpion ans Sub-Zero's masks as well as on the other end of the spectrum, way too simple and grounded character designs like Sonya, who's just a gym instructor, Kano and Jax. So I really hope there are different costumes. Sub-Zero seems to have two so I hope they all at least have two.
    The maps are insane too. It's rare to have such awesome and atmospheric maps without them being over the top. And finally, the merge with modern-era things like penthouses and bars with TVs is a great fresh touch and well integrated. Really hope the game is fun, because it looks almost perfect.

  • Todd Overholt
    Todd Overholt 3 months ago +2

    as someone who hasnt really played MK before I might get into it with this one. I quite like that they are rectifying that they cant include their whole roster of characters as full characters (a la Smash Ultimate) and are instead choosing to add them as backup characters

    I actually really like the concepts they're bringing to the table, both story and gameplay, also it seems the kameos will be mostly alternate timeline versions of the fighters, so I wouldn't discard any of them being part of the main roster too, just a different version

    • Sweet Potato Knight

      Yeaaaa but that’s almost a little too repetitive. Maybe they will have alternate skins of those Kameo Fighters for the Main Roster instead of having the same character taking two slots.

      [ C A K E S ] 3 months ago +2

      ​@majestic1278 The problem with that is that the two characters that appear to be on the main and kameo roster, Sub Zero and Kung Lao, have two versions of their characters already. Bi Han and Kuai Liang are Sub Zero and Kung Lao and the great Kung Lao are well... Kung Lao. So both are in the game on different rosters

    My thoughts and opinions.
    It’s really cool having Raiden be the student to Kung Lao. I really hope this means my boi will get redemption, I love Kung Lao but seeing the treatment he’s gotten since after Deadly Alliqnce is soul crushing. My guy deserves better
    Mileena’s affliction being a disease instead of Tarkatan Mutation is very interesting. I’m eager to learn more about this.
    Scorpion and Sub Zero being buds naturally is really cool
    The Kameo system intrigues me, but it m also wary of it. The way it functions looks amazing, and you can tell detail has gone into its implementation.
    On the other hand, Kameo Fighters could potentially be robbing the main roster of included spots. Or worse, could be tied to the monetisation system.
    Graphically it looks great environment wise, but the character models still look a bit…. Off. Could be the early build though.
    That’s about it. If Doomslayer is made a fighter or Smoke returns, I’ll be all over this game like a rash, otherwise I’ll keep a close eye on its development and probably buy it on discount in about two years time.

    I've been trying to get back to fighting games for a while now (+10 years) and nothing really speaks volumes to me after MvC. This trailer makes me want to try one, finally. MK was one of my first games back in the early 90s now that I think about it. Story, graphics, apparent depth, this feels great. Best trailer after FF7 Rebirth. That underwater game also gave serious contemporary Ecco The Dolphin vibes. Like exploration I really want to get into and not some A>B bs.

    The idea of a god Liu Kang and mortal Raiden is kind of an interesting character switch. I was also happy to see Kano, since he’s one of my favorites gameplay-wise.

      Yeah, it's kind of nice that having mercilessly screwed the pooch with mk11's stories they at least had the decency to do something with the leeway the reset gave them.

      @Immortan Dancertainly a step in the right direction after constantly abandoning ideas with potential. Oh, we set up the Revenants to be the big bad this game, with Liu Kang and Kitana leading them? Nope, they’re lackeys again. Oh, you want Dark Raiden to take a big role? Nope, he’s dead by Chapter 2.

    The transition from kharacter select screen to the fight is the best thing from this whole thing. That looks fucking sick. Yes the air kombos and kameo fatalities and all that looks insane but that little detail blew my mind 🤯 insane transition. I really hope this plays better than MK11.

    I think this is the best animated nether realm game yet. Even 11, which had better animations than previous titles is that had an issue with how it ‘feels’. But here, it looks more dynamic and also easy to read.

    To see this, a Mortal Kombat game having air combos is already nutty, especially combo-ing with your Kameo fighter is also really insane.

    I like that this game is bright and colorful, emphasizing that Fire God Liu Kang vision of the New Era filled with warmth and peace. And if I recall, the OG MK Trilogy was also colorful and mystical, and doesn't hinder its gritty and campy violence either.

    Man MK1: Reboot is looking awesome, I am super excited and jealous of the people who have been Playing this early, cuz I ready too get my butt Kicked in this Game already lol.
    Some of the Gameplay looked quicker than MK11 too me, I don't think it's MKX quickness, probably somewhere in-between I would say.
    Hopefully there is freedom within doing Combos and let all types of Players, Play their own style.

    I LOVE Kenshi's new design. Also making him a sort of Yakuza character is fitting and a creative way to rewrite him. What I'm curious about now is Takeda. The leaked Fighter Pack 1 said it would include him, I wonder how he'd be redone...

    This is freaking amazing but here I am hoping that Sonya and Jax won't be just Kameo fighters in this roster, cause I wanna for example see how will be this MK1 version of Jax since Liu Kang shaped a new universe/story to make ammends for so many characters like Sub and Scorpion being brothers and initial allies, Kitana together with Mileena in Edenia not taken by Shao Kahn, Kenshi not blinded YET! So I wanna see if we gonna have old Midway ERA Jax where he didn't got his arms ripped by Ermac and actually just enhanced his overall physical strength/super powers, if he ever gonna appear as an Actual Fighter (considering that the Kameos that are in the roster are Kameos with their nostalgic classic costumes like: MK2 Kung Lao, Sub-Zero).

      It was said that Kameos aren't necessarily just that. I don't see Stryker making it but Sonya and Jax are way more of a possibility. Just modern compared to MK original and MK2 which were the run ins.

    • Andrewman

      @Andrewman but then how do you explain Ed Boon saying that Kameo characters are mostly mk1 characters. He also said that all the Kameo characters will have their old iconic looks.

    Even if there's some aspects from MK11, which isn't a bad thing at all, just look at how fluid it looks. It flows so well gameplay wise and looks extremely clean/well made. Especially the stages.

    • Daniel M
      Daniel M 3 months ago +18

      Eh my hype for it dropped a bit after seeing gameplay tbh. The stages look really sick but other than that it looks almost identical to MK11. The characters actually look a little worse. And the tag system looks kind of awkward to me. I do like how this one looks like it has air combos though, so thats a plus. Thats been oddly missing out of MK for too long.

    • Island Dragoon
      Island Dragoon 3 months ago +11

      @Daniel M truthfully I was wishing for tag team to come back. I can see your points though. I think it's too early for Nether realm to beat how the game looks from MK 11, at least to me if that makes sense

    • beanpole_brando
      beanpole_brando 3 months ago +19

      @Daniel M i feel like meterless launching combos is the thing that makes me want this game more than anything. in mk11 you HAD to use meter for anything substantially cool looking. and the inclusion of ground bounces opens up so many possibilities

    • Daniel M
      Daniel M 3 months ago +4

      @Island Dragoon I love tag team, I wish more games incorporated it (Guilty Gear Strive in particular) but the way MK 1 is doing it is weird. Either make it a full tag team game or not at all. Having it be 1v1 but choosing a secondary character that randomly pops in and out seems like a weird design decision.

      @Bahamut Y'all are the ones bragging about it not being realistic at all when the game being slow is the most realistic part. MK9 is too fast imo MKX was okay good and mk11 was slow yeah. However this new mk game seems like a mix with aircombos and the heavely influence of combos as ED boon mentioned.

    Kenshi looks freaking awesome with his new effects and new model. I'm concerned about the movement feeling similar to MK11, but the combos look great. Additionally, the cameos have more interaction in gameplay than the average assist game, and the fact that the ""X-rays"" are between two characters reminds me so much of Street Fighter X Tekken with the tag super.
