They should zoom the camera out more on the fatality. See the whole totem's head after it crushes you.
Just wanted to say that I got over the fact that Kotal Kahn switched from bird to cat from one game to another. Sure, I wish he was a cat since the beginning, or better than he was still a bird here, but I'm still imagining the potential of a character who sometimes turns into a beast midfight.He needs to have a fatality in jaguar form, for sure.
I love how they're really using the aztec culture to make Kotal Kahn as an unique, brutal and powerful character. For the aztecs, the god Tezcatlipoca was the creator of universe. He turns into a Jaguar and can see everything through an obsidian mirror. An elite group of aztec warriors (ocēlōmeh) dressed like Jaguars due this . The fatality is inspired by a sacrifice to Tezcatlipoca too. A captive warrior was placed on a sacrifice stone, and crushed to death by ocēlōmeh. The command grab animation is all about anthropophagy. The aztecs ate human flesh of powerful enemies. They believed this practice would make them stronger. Damn, NRS... you guys are doing a wonderful job.
He was supposed to be able to do that in MKX, but I guess they didn't have the means at the time.
Glad to see they managed to do it now though.
Judging by the name, looks like his 2nd fatality will indeed be animality like, or involves him turning into the jaguar at least
his outfit isn't bird themed, it is based on Aztec tribal design. Nightwolf has feathers on his hat as well, does that make him a bird?! He still turns into a wolf. Besides feathers Kotal has a lot of fangs and animal claws on him, and snakes on his sickle like daggers. You can even customize him to have different animal based hats ( like the bear one we saw). That is why nobody can understand what you are on about)I just want people to let me have my opinions, since they're based on FACTS. (Fact: he has a bird-themed base outfit. Fact: he turns into a jaguar.)
He is a mix of the aztec culture and gods. He doesn’t need a restricted design concept, cause he is not intended to be the “bird god” or “the jaguar god”. He is intended to be all that mixed. I super doubt that you already knew the history. You’re just talking bullshit as always.1) I already knew all of those things, sorry you had to write a wall of text for nothing.
2) He still has a bird-themed base outfit while he turns into a different animal, and that still bothers me as a confused design. It's incredibly frustrating when someone doesn't accept something that simple. That's my opinion. Not sorry.
I doubt we have anything else to add to this.
Every other general is discussing theirs, I don't see why not.So, do any of you Kotal Khan mains want to talk about his tournament variations, or is it spoilers blah blah blah?
The CG Version looks solid (God Ray is the straight beam i asume) im just worried cuz he has zero mobility and we can´t compare it to sungod cuz there is no longer armor on the CG.Every other general is discussing theirs, I don't see why not.
Anyway, there's a grab/uppercut/sunbeam variation which means Sun God is in which means my ideal variation is already tournament friendly for all time. Nice. 0 interest in catting it up.
