    Caboose was one of the lucky few who got his hands on MK11 and he just recently put out a video describing his experience with the new Story Mode!

    The video doesn't show any footage of Chapter 1, but he does go into detail about what happens.

      For sure, I get what you're saying about Raiden having a personal stake in this conflict. And I admit Liu Kang is up there as well, he has a personal stake, AND he has the proven chops of being a former champ. (Those are actually my current guesses for who the final chapter will be)

      But it's important to keep in mind that all we have to go off of right now is a single story trailer, and the barebones of chapter 1 with no dialogue. So for all we know, chapter 2 could be where Kronika undoes Kotal Kahn's shoelaces, and Kotal Kahn trips and falls on his face and cries to the heavens "KRONIKA I WILL DEFEAT YOU IF IT'S THE LAST THING I DO!" and that's actually the blood feud we follow for the rest of the game. 11 chapters is plenty of setup for that to work.

      I get that you're going off of what the trailer's shown us, because that's the only things we have to go off of, but I think it's also important to keep an open mind as well.

      If we're reframing the discussion as "who do you put money on to be the protagonist as of this exact moment?" then I 100% agree that it's Raiden or Liu.

      Read this post below and I hope this makes sense. Especially about the part about why Raiden is a better fit to be in Chapter 12 then Cassie and why it made sense in MKX for her to be the final chapter in that game and not in MK11. This is a topic where people are wondering who will be in the last chapter and I have written who I think it should be. If it isn't that person and it's Cassie I won't be butthurt about it, I will just enjoy the game regardless no big deal. I'm looking forward to the gameplay more anyways. Read below and see for yourself if its a "lame ass justification".

      God forbid someone say ANYTHING in NRS' favor because if they do they're immediately an NRS dog or trying to kiss their ass or get a job.

      Just admit you're bitter and go. Damn.

      If you could actually post a cogent, coherent criticism worth anything it would be a miracle. You literally haven't even seen anything of it - you have the vaguest of vague descriptions from a Youtube video. But its bad, and you believe that Chapter 2 will be bad too. You're honestly terrible.

      I could come in here and tell you that Chapter 1 is about the Cage family and its so good it makes Citizen Kane look like B movie schlock. And without seeing it you'd call it terrible.

      Glad to know someone understands where I was coming from. I agree with your points also, it is important to keep an open mind. Yeah, I may not want it to be Cassie, but if it is and the story mode builds it in such a way that it makes sense, then I will be cool with that or if it were any other character. As long as it makes sense, that's all

      It has nothing to do with your English, that's not what I'm saying. You don't actually have any substance to your criticism, you just spew the same catchphrases over and over.

      Yeah that makes sense. I guess my point was, despite people's complaining about the emphasis on SF, the series has not gotten any further away from anything mystical or fantasy. And that really shouldn't be a concern, they aren't beating Kronika with guns.

      Maybe it's just me, but I swear Caboose, Super and Dynasty all sound alike lol. Dynasty sounds the most different but Caboose and Super to me sound like they can be brothers, I also want to see them fight each other lol. Nice vid, can't wait for this game already!!!

      Yeah, I don't mind SF they have been an integral part of MK since the first game and it's good to have grounded characters too in addition to more mystical ones. In this game, it makes sense for someone like Raiden to be the final chapter. As for me wanting the Shaolin to be at the forefront again, it stems from the fact that I'm an old skool MK guy and I'm just a sucker for nostalgia lol! However, that doesn't mean I'm not open minded for the series to develop new characters and try new directions. As long as it makes sense, I'm happy.

      In this game with the whole time travel aspects, it would be nice to see Liu Kang be the main protagonist in addition to Raiden even if it's just this game. Regardless I'm thrilled young Liu Kang and Kung Lao are back and will kombat their revenant counterparts. Hell, I'm even excited about Scorpion vs Hanzo Hasashi!!

      Jax had his arms blown off by Ermac, got killed by Sindel and turned into a Revenant, then brought back to life; all of that happened and he still rejoined the fight, albeit reluctantly. I have gotta see what the reason is for his discharge and trauma if all of that wasn't able to do it.

      No! It’s more than fucked up. Every weakling is gonna beat Liu Kang now.
    13. Briggsfan
      It doesn't seem like he will be sitting this roster out going by the leak that has been spot on so far. So the latter is probably the more likely scenario.
    14. Qaesen
      Weakling? Cassie fucked up Corrupted Shinnok. Liu Kang is child's play when it comes to Cassie
    15. DragonofDadashov24
      Thank NRS stupid writing for that. She got her ass handed to her by everyone in that game. All thanks to that plot armor aka Johnny’s ancsestor bullshit.
      Nobody is even remotely close to beating MK champion. Nobody but NRS script writers.

      My theory/opinion is that past and present timeline characters will help take down Kronika. Based on what we've seen I suspect Kitana, Liu Kang and Shao Kahn will be the last ones standing with her.

      I'd love to see past time line Jitana, Jade, Raiden, Liu Kang, Kung Lao alongside present timeline Cassie, Jacqui, Dark Raiden, Johnny Cage, Scorpion, Sub-Zero take her down.

      If NRS is smart they could have multiple parts to the fights too. The Keeper of time should require the best of the past and present to shut her down. It would bring the whole story full circle.

      Liu Kang is never gonna be the main hero again lmao. And with cast like that MK should change protagonist s every game, honestly.
      Also, seeing how edgy Raiden is one of the big bads right now, i`m pretty sure the last chapter is gonna go to younger Raiden.

      Couple things

      1) would be kinda crazy if Sonya died, this time line Sonya survived two tournaments, an outworld invasion, Sindel, Shinnok’s invasion, 20 years of missions, then Shinnok again. Obviously time travel would save her but this particular Sonya will have died.

      2) Johnny Cage has kinda become the main hero of MK now. Raiden felling Liu Kang that Cage is a hero when Liu Kang isn’t at all impressed back in MK9 really sets stuff in motion. Johnny is still a douche bag but he loves his family and friends and when he fought Shinnok in MKX he was more than willing to die for Sonya, he just didn’t realize how powerful he was. Even though the green energy is kind of a dumb plot line, it literally enables Johnny to be the hero he is supposed to be when the time is right which I think is cool.

      3) Also in Cassie’s MKX intros and from what we’ve seen from her MK11 intros she is definitely more like Johnny and is more of a sarcastic ass, but she wasn’t always like that in the MKX story mode. She was just like Sonya too, she had Johnny’s humor but she definitely wasn’t as light heated as him, her demeanor seemed closer to Sonya to me. Kung Jin was honestly more of a cocky shithead that caused problems. I like that aspect of Cassie and as obvious as it sounds it’s the combination of Johnny and Sonya that makes her one of my favorites, not just the cool one liners.

      I hope they throw kind of a curveball with the story. All of the now living characters, even the heroes have lost all of their friends. Especially if Sonya is dead. Raiden lost Liu Kang and Kung Lao, Sub-Zero lost his brother, Scorpion lost his family, it seems like Johnny and Cassie just lost Sonya. It looks like light Raiden from the past is the protagonist from what we’ve seen from the trailers, maybe Kronika is able to recruit and manipulate some of these characters because of how fucked their lives are now, and their younger selves will have to stop them.

      Unlinked theory but that’s how I’d play it if I were writing it

      He hasn't been the main hero since MK4, what's wrong with Liu Kang being the main hero one more time?

      Absolutely nothing. He’s the strongest MK character. The UNDEFEATED champion. In the current timeline they messed him up really bad.

      He was defeated by Shang Tsung and Quan Chi in MK: DA, long before this new timeline. It's time to let the 90's go, bro.

      Have you guys seen what actual real life Shaolins go through? Their training regime is insane! They are prepared for everything and I mean EVERYTHING! They literally have you getting smacked with a stick to your balls all day long. These guys dedicate themselfs to become ultimate warriors. Now compare that to a military grunt. I dont see Cassie beating anyone but her fellow military. Her beating Shinnok was god awful, her beating Liu Kang is just blasphemy.
