    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.

      Hell yeah. Even the Buddha monk beads makes more sense with a staff instead of swords. Awesome outfit, my favorite as well.

      I also noticed that the staff we see in the full Raiden MK11 render is different than the one we see in the MK11 reveal trailer.

      The staff he summons in the reveal trailer is hard to see as he swings it around, but as he bashes Scorpion's head in, we get a close-up of the the end of it. And it appears to be the same design as Raiden's staff in MKX.

      Yeah, I noticed that also. I wonder if this is a slight "hint" that MKX gear will be in the game?

      Wasn't it already confirmed it would be? I think this is just showing an example of it.
      Also, it also makes it more obvious that these are indeed screenshots, and it might actually be the customisation screens we're looking at.
    5. Gamer68
      They haven't confirmed any types of gear, just the fact that the gear system itself is in the game. This is the only hint we have towards gear based off of MKX being in the game -- and potentially full sets.

      At the same time, though, it could just be they decided to give Raiden his MKX staff and that's it. Nothing else. I guess we will have to wait and see.

      Someone on the sub-reddit also pointed out to me that the ribbons on his hat are red in the trailer, while in the render it looks dark grey/blue'ish (I'm not sure, being colourblind and all).

      His ribbons in the render are a cool grey (has maybe a slight blue/green tint), so you are right.

      Anyway, I was actually talking to someone the other day about how it would be cool if you could assign a specific shader to a specific piece of gear. Like I could put a blue shader on his hat, but then a yellow shader on his torso, or something like that. Basically, instead of shaders applying to the whole outfit you get to mix and match them.

      Maybe this is that? At the same time though it's important to note that the CG trailer may not be 100% accurate on how the characters look in the final version of the game. It's completely possible that it used to be red but then NRS randomly decided to change it to grey. Or who knows? Maybe the render is actually kinda old somehow and it used to be grey but they changed it to red.

      I give this game 11 out of 10 graphix.

      gear + mk and everybody's got weapons again? This is going to be the worst 4 months of my life

      There are gear and shaders. The differences in the renders and the trailer should be obvious.

      Having said that, if everything is strictly cosmetic and you can buy in game currency for loot, I shudder to think what I'll do the first time I'm drunk playing this. "Yo, I need that MK2 gear set for Shang Tsung. Just buy 10 more boxes."
