With the coming of MK's 25th anniversary, I had high hopes for any big announcements coming from NRS but still from this day, nothing really huge came out. The only thing I saw is that they added new skins/characters on the mobile version of MKX and small videos were put up on Youtube. Tho interesting that's far from enough. Is there anything I missed? Is there any big announcements to come in 2018? What would you guys like the most? Announcement for a whole new game (MK11 or SM2)? Remastered versions of the old games (Trilogy, Mythologies lol)? A re-release of the arcade kollection adding MK4? A blockbuster movie that would not suck?
I knew not to get my hopes up. WB's priorities don't allow too much for MK, even with stuff like anniversaries.
Nothing has been announced, but I'm still confident an initial trailer for MK11 will be revealed next year during E3. The ship for remasters of older games kinda sailed awhile ago, given how little the arcade kollection sold from what I remember. A movie was announced awhile back though with a found director which Boon confirmed as much, but I don't think anything more has come of it yet.
Well, I guess you're all right, pretty sure you are and that's sad. I know WB's the wallet but damn sometimes I feel like guys at NRS are like Georges at Lucas Film; sitting on something to big for them, unable to fully exploit its potencial... Until Disney comes in and FSU. That's it, I said it

Pretty much.. If I had to guess, WB's not allowing the announced MK movie to get further off the ground until they've had enough success and exposure with the DC cinematic universe. Still haven't seen Justice League yet but outside of the Wonder Woman movie, it's been largely unsatisfying so far due to rushing shit out to compete with Mahvel.
Regardless, the MK movie would be an interesting way of eventually throwing a wrench into the machine...
