    With Shao Kahn's full look being the story of the day yesterday, it was only fitting for the Defender of Earthrealm (now the Aggressor?) to get his look revealed. So yeah. Here it is. Check that out.



    Look at that. Pretty gold right? Matches Shao Kahn's helmet pretty well. The story initially was reported by Mortal Kombat Online with the original posting being shared by NRS on their Discord page. Dropping an invite link here for any of you cool kids who haven't entered the cool kids club yet. I would expect to see something with Scorpion shortly, especially with us getting closer and closer to the reveal event next Thursday. NRS has already confirmed character reveals to come, alongside gameplay footage and more, so make sure you keep that night free. But if not, TYM will be covering both events in person, so we can hook you up.

      Yeah, probably.

      Dark Raiden is more cool than the normal Raiden ... both regarding color scheme and personality ! I could not mind if Raiden suddenly might become a regular villain in MK lore universe, he is more badass acting like a bad guy, hehe

      Since we saw Dark Raiden in MKD, I've wanted for him to be the focal point as the main antagonist in a game... but then Armageddon happened. So seeing him return into Dark Raiden in MKX gave me renewed hope, and it seems like (though maybe not the MAIN antagonist) he will indeed be the main focal point of this game!

      And hopefully that also means Fujin will step up and take over Raiden's former position as guide and protector of Earthrealm.

      shao khan with a hammer, raiden with a staff, and scorpion swords
      mmmm.. this smell bad.
      i think in mk11 would be 2 variations with each caracter, weaponed and normal.
      if mk11 is only with weapons like soul calibur i dont gonna play it.

      Doubt we'll see weapon movesets tbh. I think instead of x-rays we'll get supers which use weapons and their new GoreTech system. X-rays on "random moves" leaked as krushing blows during the fight maybe

      I'm ready to get a good look at the female faces for MK11 though. Injustice 2 did a great job, especially with Harley, Ivy, Canary, Starfire. Actually, they were all great imo. I'm just ready to see how they one-up themselves this time.

      Let's see how Raiden's NJP is in this game and then decide ;)

      I sincerely hope all of njp's work universally the same like they did in mk9, no more of that bs character specific njp's that mkx brought.

      I don't gonna play it, either.

      But seriously....this will absolutely not be what happens. You'll be able to customize your own variation by choosing specials. If anything, weapons could work like traits do in Injustice. Or....they're even less intrusive and just seamlessly work within strings/special moves as they have before. Let's not forget that MKX had a TON of weapon based moves, and that seemed to work just fine.

      Scorpion used swords

      Sub Zero had an ice hammer

      Kung Jin had a bow AND a staff

      Leatherface had a chainsaw

      Jason had a machete

      Predator had a staff blade

      Shinnok had a staff type weapon

      Kano has knives

      Kenshi has a sword

      Kotal Kahn had a huge strip of bacon

      Mileena has sais

      Bo Rai Cho has a stick

      Takeda has chain whips AND light sabers

      The list goes ON AND ON AND ON. Why is everyone freaking out about weapons so much? Weapons are nothing new in MK. Calm down and trust NRS.

      I kind of like him as a good guy or anti-hero but like this, a badass who won't think twice about killing you if you threaten Earthrealm. BTW, is that an anime version of Sareena in your pic?

      Reptile is so awesome, he doesn't need a weapon :)

      Nope, it's just a random fan art I picked up on Internet, hehe .... I hope Sareena make it into MK 11 roster this time, let's see ! :D

      A little too much gold for me, I’d like more red, (obviously can be changed if gear is back) but he does look great

      Nice, always cool to see a new fellow MK fan. Welcome to TYM xenogorgeous MK chick! :) oh that's cool, lots of fan art to choose from. I have done a lot myself though not lately, I may do some again once they reveal Fujin! Yeah, she's a cool character, I wouldn't mind.

      What's with all this gold we're seeing?

      Between Shao and Raiden I mean.

      Someone else pointed this out, but his head looks incredibly big and his hands pretty small in comparison. He looks oddly proportioned.

      I’d like to see the hatless Raiden again. With the samurai knot.
