What's new

2 new characters leaked

Gesture Required Ahead

Get on that hook
I have to disagree to the highest extent. Not many people outside of Xbox/Halo/Gear fans even know who Arbiter or this General Raam guy are. Jason and Leatherface are iconic characters. Jason and Leatherface are pop culture status. Even if not everybody knows them by name or has seen their movies, people know who they are. On Halloween when every little kid is walking around with a hockey mask, we all know who that is supposed to be and who made that popular. Leatherface and TCM are iconic too. He more or less made the chainsaw and Halloween/haunted houses/hayrides synonymous with each other. Not to mention Leatherface was one of the forefathers of the Slasher sub-genre in general.

I know Jason/Leatherface vs Arbiter/Raam is subjective and is pointless to really talk about since people like what they like, but I love my slashers and I gott stick up for them XD
Well that is why Jason/LF ware in MK and Arbiter and Raam are in an Xbox-exclusive FG.

I thought this game was dead
KI has more support than any NRS game ever will get. Let's not forget that it came out the same year as Injustice did. Oh yea, nobody knows what that game is anymore...

If this is true, it'll be interesting to see how she fits in with Maya being in Nightguard. Vampires,werewolves,Vikings an aliens. Pretty diverse lineup.

Of coarse. My comment was directed at a comment I had read saying that Abiter/RAAM are good guests while implying Jason and Leatherface aren't, thats all lol

Terrible times breed terrible things, my lord.
The HYPE for RAAM is astronomically... Ok.. I'll calm down. Pause. RAAM dawg!!!

Now that's a guest appearance in a fighting game. He should have totally been in MKX Fenix or Barid too Cole would've been sick.

My imagination is running with him in differnt variations going at it with the cast Kryll bombs and shields and maybe the kryll assault and his favorite weapon his huge knife that stuck Valeria and Lt Ming like a steak on a plate.

The. Hype. Is really real.

Wow. How will KI use him and the match up with Fulgore.

Well you got me there lol. A select few still play it. I guess I can get back into K.I. I was told it's dead

I would be excited but I can't play certain characters without combo assist so I might not even bother with the game

They only adding them in ki to get the fan base of both games to play ki but that won't happen people say I'm competitive fps tps yet they won't learn how to play fighting game

ive not played this game in a little while but what is combo assist?
Basically less input like instead pressing light medium for linker I just press one of those buttons and no down quarter back for ender you do forward ender just much easier then before. You have the option to take it off but I leave it on for Hisako she's the only character I can't play without it

It was added in a couple of months ago to help new players adjust to the combo system. With it on, you only have to do face inputs once the combo system kicks in, no directions. It helps people understand what combos should look like and how they will time but give non-optimal outcomes so it is inferior to someone actually going for setups or optimal damage.

Hate to double post, but I am so excited for season 3. It looks fantastic so far! And though these leaks don't get me as hyped as Arby or Rash's inclusion do, Iron Galaxy has inspired so much faith in me, and I think a lot of the community, over Season 2 and the upcoming Season 3 that I think RAAM's adaptation will be brilliant. Seriously, I think NRS could learn a lot from IG. *activate flame shield*

Yeah it might get some people to crossover but I don't think it will do too much. I know for a fact that Arbiter and RAAM aren't going to get me to go buy a Halo or Gears game lol though I will admit Rash's inclusion has made me a little interested in Battletoads. it would be cool if MS could release a Battletoads collection with all the games on one disc or something, id try it out

My main issue with KI wasn't actually the character choice or design. It was just how whacked out they made some characters. Like Sadira, TJ Combo, sort of Maya, Kan Ra, Aria, etc. They're all so crazy that it's hard to even keep track of what's going on sometimes. Gets a bit of a Marvel feel when 90% of the game is spent in midair. But since I play Thunder mostly, it's probably just the salt that everybody jumps out of my tick throws talking.

Yeah, I never understood the hate here in MK for guest characters.

I'd get that logic if they had Michael Myers as their dlc or something...but they picked three different things that were all at least somewhat interesting. "Movie killer with a mask" is literally ALL there is to Jason and Leatherface. Not that there's any debating this point with you as you appear to be a Leatherface main.

Yes I am a Leatherface main (also a Cassie main). But there is MUCH more to Jason and Leatherface then just "guy with a mask". Leatherface actually has a depressing backstory (same with Jason). I don't really feel like typing their whole life story (I could if people wanna hear my horror movie dorkyness tho), but I highly suggest reading up on them sometime. They have some well written backstory.

All too easy...
Im really not a fan of guest characters when they are blatantly for cross promotion purposes but hey at least they are from other games instead of random movies. Iron Galaxy also puts a lot of effort into the guests to make them feel really unique and fun, if you havent seen Rashes taunts yet look that up because he has more personality than all the guests in MKX combined. Also cool that the guests get their own stages as well, hopefully RAAM's stage is the moving train you fight him on at the end of GOW1. Also if RAAM is a traditional grappler Im going to get back into this game for real because the only thing stopping me from playing is the lack of a true main.

Rare Replay has 2 Battletoads games in it, plus other stuff obviously.

Shadow Jago is basically a whole Marvel team on his own lol

I suppose I simply don't understand what that has to do with making an interesting fighting game character, but I'll admit I'm a little narrow minded on the subject lol. I won't force the issue any more, as you probably know more about the characters than I do, and I'll just stick with what you were saying and say to each their own.

Awesome, I might have to check that out. I am going to wait and see what comes with S3 ultra first though, the first 2 seasons ultra came with the classic KI games, so maybe they will bundle a battletoads game with S3 Ultra to promote Rash some more XD

I also wouldn't hold my breathe for a RAAM stage, it's been confirmed we are only getting 3 new stages in Season 3 and we have seen them all (Kim Wu's, Tusk's, and Arbiter's) :/
