Femme Fatale Skin Pack

Are they not doing Kombat Pack bonus skins anymore?

Pretty much all the previous packs had a bonus skin for KP owners, like MK3 Sonya with the MK3 skins, Apocalypse Geras with the DC skins, Hellspawn Jacqui with the Matinee skins, Cassie Quinn with the Double Feature skins, but there sadly wasn't one with the Summer Heat pack.

Was kinda hoping there might be a surprise inclusion of Frost in old school UMK3 female ninja garb with this, but if Summer Heat's anything to go by, it seems there might not be any more bonus skins...
 
I do really like these skins a lot, but I would’ve liked to see an MK3 skin for Sindel and Kabal over these, and I’m a Kitana main lol.

Also, I hope one day we get a classic Shao Kahn. I know you get close to his MK2/3 look, but it’s not exact, and I’d like to see him without the scales and stuff

Need to see the knot from the side to fully judge these skins, but it at least looks good on Jade and Kitana. The fan for Kitana is also worth it. I think people will stop complaining once they see it in action.
It still bugs the hell out of me though that just like with the MK2 skins, the colour of Jade's mask is matched to the black parts of the costume, rather than the green.

If you used the MK2 skins with the black sections (rather than the solid single-colour costumes), Skarlet and Kitana would still retain their red and blue masks respectively, yet Jade's would turn black.

I'm assuming the mask palettes for all characters in the game are simply tied to an algorithm where the mask is automatically coloured as per a specific trim in the lower costume (which is why you get some very weird colour combinations that no manually designed costume would be intentionally mis-matched with for some characters) and Jade's has somehow been applied oppositely to how Kitana's and Skarlet's are programmed (perhaps based on accessorising the original base costumes in the game that were all unique for one another before these identically-uniformed DLC ones came along).

But surely that can manually be fixed, they must have noticed this issue during the promotion for both classic female ninja skin packs?

True, but I don't think they see it as in issue. Good pointing out though and definitely would explain some odd colour combos and variations. However, we have so many mask options that I'm sure you'll find a solid green one to go with it.

Still glad I didn't throw money at this. Super lazy to make a skin pack just 1 skin, and on top of that they look super off. They used to care for this stuff, now it looks like they sold the packs without any ideas of what they were going to do and at the last minute picked some skins intended to be tower rewards or something and made them part of this.

I don't know how much we can trust it, but the silhouettes in the teaser image are sadly all for male characters.
oh right, okay so uh, prisoner Kano, Noob as ghost face or the ripper and Johnny Cage cosplaying Ruy or Ken lmao.

Think they might even dip back into the well of last year's Kombat Kards from Halloween? Scary clown Baraka, Turkey Time Kotal, vampire D'Vorah and... er... black pussy cat Noob?
