  • Discussion on the future of Mortal Kombat after Mortal Kombat X.

    This is continued from this thread.

    • Any ideas what the next Mortal Kombat might be called?

      I doubt it'll be simply MK11 or "XI", maybe a subtitle is in place?

        Loading editor
    • definitely wont be MK XI, looks too similar to MK XL.

    • Back to the discussion of Kitana and Liu Kahn's offspring. As much as I would love that and it is about that time that it should've happened, I doubt we'll get that or those characters.

        Loading editor
    • I can see why you'd think that, MK11's story probably won't be long after MKX's, and if their child does appear it'd probably still be an infant.. But I think they could still make an appearance as a playable character, perhaps as a secret unlockable character, in adult form

        Loading editor
    • They should make some characters for the game unlockable. To have it like Deception and Deadly Alliance where you have to grind to unlock characters.

        Loading editor
    • Even if they had that now, there'd be a pay shortcut option to unlock them, like what Injustice 2 had for Brainiac for those who didn't want to play through the story mode or "grind" to unlock him, much as it sickens me.

        Loading editor
    • Think what you will but I'm sure the Brainiac purchase option was added for convenience in setting up tournaments and other events for the game.

      It'd be cool if we did get a child of Liu Kang and Kitana.

      Only DLC characters should have that.

      I will not argue against that. It would be awesome. And, frankly, it would have happened if Liu Kang and Kitana were to stay alive. Apparently, once Shinnok was defeated by the hands of Johnny Cage, love was in the air and 4 kids came out of it as a result. I guess that Kung Jin would have been born regardless though.

    • I feel like Shang Tsung should come back for MK 11. Along with Quan Chi. Not to form the Deadly Alliance again but maybe to have them serve as advisors to Onaga.

        Loading editor
    • They gave Shang Tsung a break, so Quan Chi ought to get one too. Am all for the return of Tsungster though as some sort of wildcard.

      Agreed completely. Quan Chi might be badass but he's long due a break, I think.

        Loading editor
    • To me, for Onaga he needs a trusty advisor that can help him and not stab him in the back like Shao Kahn. That is if the Dragon King does return.

        Loading editor
    • It might be poetic that Shang Tsung returns as Onaga's advisor/messenger. I can see a whole alliance between the forces of Onaga, Shang Tsung, and the Edenian traitors alongside the Red and Black Dragon Clans. What if Raiden joined them?

        Loading editor
    • I really want the enslaved heroes to be fully resurrected for MK 11. NetherRealm did our most favorite characters dirty for the last several years.

        Loading editor
    • It's almost like the best toys were put away into the chest just to be brought out at the most convenient time.

        Loading editor
    • "Our most favorite characters?" I'm afraid I can't say I agree.

        Loading editor
    • I would have to say that even though I like where they're taking Scorpion, I don't like how they've been keeping him in the background and not in the spotlight.

        Loading editor
    • Really? Some would complain he has too much spotlight.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, it's mostly subjective, and depends on how much someone likes a character as to whether they feel they get enough spotlight or not.

      Even with that said though, most of the established MK heroes outside of the Cage family have been shit on by NRS for awhile.

        Loading editor
    • I don't get what you guys expect though, it has always been like this. Heroes come and heroes go. I mean the three main 3D era MK games, MKDA, MKD, & MKA, all had a different protagonist each. The only difference is that nowadays the heroes that went are actually being acknowledged (even if it is to be 'shit on')

      Not trying to excuse the decisions NRS have made, mind you, I'm just saying.

        Loading editor
    • Scorpion has never been the protagonist.

        Loading editor
    • No he has not been. Why are you bringing that up?

        Loading editor
    • I would like to see Darrius and Hotaru make their return for MK 11.

        Loading editor
    • I bring up Scorpion not being the protagonist because he should be one of the protagonists. Plus, we're talking about spotlights, protagonists, and favorite characters. Scorpion is one that has never been in the spotlight nor has he been a real protagonist.

      What about Dairou?

        Loading editor
    • I would totally put those three in the mix. I think because Havik, technically, died in the MKX comics that he shouldn't come back. Maybe the end of MK11 reveals something involving the Seidans and Havik is brought back to stop them in MK12.

        Loading editor
    • Perhaps they could introduce another Chaosrealmer, someone to take up the role of Cleric of Chaos since Havik's dead and to expand on the lore of the Chaosrealm. Maybe a female Chaosrealmer.

        Loading editor
    • A female Chaosrealmer would be fun. I just doubt they would have any reason to involve Chaosrealm in the next game now that Havik is dead.

        Loading editor
    • I have a feeling Quan Chi will be back for MK 11, despite him getting killed by Scorpion. Because Quan Chi is among the favorite characters for those like Ed Boon.

        Loading editor
    • They're not above killing some fan favorites and keeping it that way, so I hope you're wrong about Quan Chi since I see no reason for him to be an exception, especially after his treatment in MKX.

        Loading editor
    • I have a feeling that anyone from MKX and the comics who died will not be back in MK11. Playable that is. We could see everyone because of Onaga and it's just an army of his undead soldiers.

        Loading editor
    • It wonders me if Shang Tsung will come back. But what role will he play? 

        Loading editor
    • On top of this I do want to see more villains for MK 11 as we can get an even balance of both sides. Which villains do you guys want to see back?

        Loading editor
    • MK11 is NRS' chance to really blur the lines.

      Here are my villain picks: D'Vorah, Daegon, Ferra/Torr, Goro, Jade (possessed by Mysterious Woman), Jared, Kabal, Kai (Red Dragon member), Kano, Kira, Kitana, Kung Lao, Stryker, Liu Kang, Nightwolf, Onaga, Rain, Shane Tsung, Sindel, Skarlet, Smoke, Tanya, Tremor, Triborg, and more.

      Hero picks: Ashrah, Bo'Rai Cho, Cassie, Dairou, Darrius, Fujin, Jax, Jacqui, Johnny Cage, Kenshi, Sub-Zero, Kung Jin, Li Mei, Sareena, Sheeva, Shujinko, and Sonya.

      Blurred lines: Noob Saibot (protagonostic), Ermac (protagonistic), Erron Black (protagonistic), Frost (antagonistic), Hotaru (antagonistic), Kotal (protagonistic) Raiden (antagonistic), Reptile (protagonistic), Scorpion (antagonistic), and Takeda (antagonistic).

      Non-playable/DLC: Baraka (undead), Blaze, Cyrax (undead humam), Drahmin (undead), Havik (undead), Hornbuckle (DLC), Hsu Hao (undead), Hydro (DLC), Jataaka (DLC), Kia (DLC), Kintaro (undead), Kobra (undead), Mavado (undead), Mileena (undead), Moloch (undead), Monster (DLC), Motaro (undead), Nimbus Terrafaux (DLC), No Face (DLC), Quan Chi (undead), Reiko (undead), Sector (undead), Shinnok (Just his head), and whatever horror movie icon as DLC.

    • I really want Shao Kahn and Onaga to come back for MK 11. Because having both of them back would make things interesting.

        Loading editor
    • Shao, Onaga, Kotal, having all the Emperors of Outworld in the game could lead to some epic match-ups I think.

        Loading editor
    • Actually, having Shao Kahn in the game would give a dynamic. Him going up against Kotal and then the two going up against Onaga would be pretty epic.

      By the way, I saw a video, not MK: Annihilation, that explained Shao Kahn to be a god. He was supposedly the protector god of Outworld. I wonder if there's any merit to this.

        Loading editor
    • Wouldn't mind that since it would shed some light on his rivalry with Raiden, who is also a god.

      But yeah, good ideas.

        Loading editor
    • It just doesn't explain the fact that Shao Kahn was Onaga's trusted advisor. But it woukd explain his incredible strength.

        Loading editor
    • Well keep in mind, John Vogel and whatever other writers on the team kinda just made things up as they went along, so not everything will perfectly add up. That said though, still like how they managed to integrate Onaga into the past lore, with how late in the series he had been introduced and all.

        Loading editor
    • I agree. I hope they keep that going into the new timeline.

        Loading editor
    • I think it would be fantastic if Shao Kahn were to come back as a "savior" of sorts. He takes down Onaga and saves everyone.

        Loading editor
    • Hey, anyone else liking the idea of Pennywise from It and Michael Myers from Halloween being guest characters in MK11?

        Loading editor
    • normally id say michael myers wouldnt work because theres nothing at all interesting or abnormal about him. hes just a big scary man with a knife. no gimmicks, nothing to experiment with. but now that theyve done leatherface, whose nothing but a big scary man with a chainsaw, i dont know what to expect. pennywise sounds pretty cool though. 

        Loading editor
    • Negan from Walking Dead, bashes brains in with Lucielle.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah I wouldn't mind Michael Myers and Pennywise being in MK11. In fact I somewhat expect them to be in, especially Pennywise.

        Loading editor
    • I also like the idea of Megan. Not sure if he fits though. He is human but I suppose even Stryker is human.

        Loading editor
    • That would be quite cool to see a Stephen King character in MK. Hopefully, in the future, we could have Bardo from Salon's Lot.

        Loading editor
    • Would it be too late for Keepers Creepers to be in MK11?

        Loading editor
    • Maybe. He seems like a rather obscure character.

      On another note... The announcement trailer for the next MK should go live in about a month, I wonder if they'll finally let Sub-Zero win for once? lol

        Loading editor
    • Has Sub-Zero lost? I mean, I would like very much for Scorpion and Sub-Zero to be the main protagonists of the game.

        Loading editor
    • No, I mean, if you notice carefully, Sub-Zero is always killed by Scorpion in all of the MK cinematic trailers.

        Loading editor
    • You know, that does raise an interesting inquiry. Being that Sub-Zero is arguably the fan favorite, why does Scorpion always kills Sub-Zero? Is it because Boon favors Scorpion?

        Loading editor
    • Maybe it's that, but I think it's because Scorpion is generally more well known.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah but if Sub-Zero is the #1 favorite amongst the masses, what you just said doesn't make sense.

        Loading editor
    • Of course it makes sense. Being the most well known doesn't necessarily mean being the most liked.

      And besides... Scorpion's #1 regardless. I don't know where you're getting the notion that Sub-Zero is more popular than him anyway.

      This ranking is clearly trash. I'm just saying... I read literally the very first character (in order from worst to best) and had to stop immediately. Reiko is the WORST character in the entire series?! That's just ridiculous.

      Edit: Okay, so I read a little further... I had to see how angry this list could make me. Jade is ranked 59th. She is undoubtedly a fan favorite. Just sheer stupidity. I don't need to go any further to know this list is terrible.

        Loading editor
    • I knew I should've stopped when I saw Reiko listed just below Hsu Hao, but curiosity kept me skimming through as to see how bad it could get, and yeah. One of the worst lists I've ever seen.

      I guess to be fair though, with how divisive opinions of the whole MK cast can be (since it is quite a big cast at this point), any fan could make a whole list like that which would in some way be considered terrible to others. That posted one is exceptionally bad though.

      I'm unaware without doing any research, but that list just seemed to be written by a small group of people, quite possibly less than 10, not something of the caliber of a large poll that involved hundreds or thousands of voters.

        Loading editor
    • You're probably right.

        Loading editor
    • Is there a way to do a poll with every character like ranking them from best to worst on here?

      I'm not positive, but you could ask one of the admins. I've seen polls on here before regarding who people's favorite dlc character was and the like, so maybe. You could also just create a new thread asking people, but then you'd have to put in the work manually to count everyone's votes, which could take a while, especially if you're looking to incorporate a poll involving every character, and I feel like a lot of people wouldn't even care enough to post a vote anyway, but I could be wrong.

        Loading editor
    • That's a good idea. I'll think about that.

        Loading editor
    • Okay, back to the future of MK. Obviously, if MK keeps going in the same direction as it has, we're bound to see a retelling of Deadly Alliance and Deception. Of course, it won't go the same way as the original timeline but it should have some similar elements. What are these elements?

        Loading editor
    • Well, first & foremost, a major role for Onaga.

        Loading editor
    • Onaga-the-Dragon-King-from-Mortal-Kombat-Deception
      Since art for him isn't real common, thought this was a decent fan model someone did of him a little while back. Makes me look forward to how he would be remodeled by NRS even more... Of course not gonna get my hopes up for him too much after all this time, but still.
        Loading editor
    • Oh yeah, definitely Onaga. He'll either be the big bad or the sub-boss.

      I can also see a Deadly Alliance type. Like multiple alliances. Liu Kang and Kitana, Black and Red Dragons, Raiden and Hotaru, and so on.

        Loading editor
    • I think this might be a fake. It's really obscure. I'm sure it's another trolling session. It's too much to think that a 14 year old could be Raiden amongst other things. The fact that there's a completely new character playing the lead role is, without a doubt, the worst idea anyone could think of. The weird cast of characters like Nitara and Drahmin. The age range of everyone just can't be real. They're way to far from each other. Liu Kang from age 20 to 35? No. Just no. Kung Lao is Liu Kang's brother? What? If it does go through, this will be the biggest upset in Mortal Kombat history.

        Loading editor
    • Even worse than everyone dying in MK9?

        Loading editor
    • Yes, even worse than that. My feelings aside though, I can't even give that info the benefit of a doubt when it lacks Scorpion and Sub-Zero of all things; as if no Johnny Cage weren't bad enough, making it somewhat comparable to Annihilation.

      But with how much Warner Bros has mucked up the live action DC films, I honestly wouldn't put a reboot MK movie under them that's that bad sounding past them.

      Tho yeah, with MK still dry on news after fans being disappointed at no MK11 reveal, I guess this would be the season of clickbait, annoying as it is that eventhubs as other places give this the time of day. If you want your share of bogus MK news, just watch Dynasty, who I'm sure has already done a video on it.

        Loading editor
    • But think about it. They're "green lit" for two 3D era characters who are either not very well liked or very low on the fan totem poll. Drahmin and Nitara are both getting such a huge push from the film company? Wow.

      I like what this guy is saying about the whole thing.

        Loading editor
    • Even fans who like some of those obscure 3D era characters wouldn't see them happening for a movie, not unless they're current relevant characters that Warner Bros can benefit from. And even if they were in the film, what would they have besides a cameo?

      I figured the so-called movie news would get debunked, but didn't think it would be this soon. Well that's good. And yeah, History Behind the Warrior summed it all up pretty well.

    • Greg Russo said that script was an old version & he's an MK fan. And a Kitana main.

        Loading editor
    • Is more reassuring than having Megan Fox as Kitana, at least.

        Loading editor
    • Please no Megan Fox. Yes, she's eye candy but a terrible actress.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, Megan Fox is trash. I've always held the opinion that all of the characters that will be in any action sequences/fights should be actors who actually know some sort of martial art so that they can do their own stunts and be believable. That'd also save on casting, because you wouldn't be spending oodles of dough on well known actors who may deliver the lines better, but ultimately won't be able to do any of the stunts. Besides, all of the dialogue is kinda cheesy and campy in MK anyway.

        Loading editor
    • Agreed. Though, I do feel that Megan Fox can deliver a pretty convincing evil chick. She kind of reminded me of Mileena in Jennifer's Body but I seriously doubt she can be a convincing Kitana or Mileena due to her lack of knowledge of martial arts. Plus, otherwise, terrible actress.

        Loading editor
    • By the way, would the old information about the "reboot" movie have enough validity to the wikia that we would actually see the information? I would only hope that if it is then it's a blip on and the info (complete info) has it's own page.

    • I don't personally like tag team mode, but as long as the gameplay isn't centered around it, there's really no reason for it to not return. However, if it's something like Tekken Tag Tournament, then I wouldn't be happy.

        Loading editor

      Well, I was implying that I didn't really like TTT. I'm all for any fighter that features all (or almost all) characters so far from their respective franchise, but for me, it was difficult to even enjoy TTT or TTT2 due to the player being forced to played tag team mode, which is something I don't enjoy.

        Loading editor
    • Oh okay. I figured that you liked TTT which is why I asked because, in essence, Deadly Alliance was the TTT of MK. But yes, MK can't have a mode that is consistantly tag team. They did it very well in MK9.

        Loading editor
    • Of course, I do like the idea of a handicap mode as well. This would make it so that it's a tag team versus the player and vice versa.

    • Why is it called "handicap mode?"
