I'm pretty sure it became bogus once that "we're fitting in as many characters as we can before we ship" interview came outI'm wondering if that "8 characters from MK1-3" interview was bogus. Because as of now we have Sub, Scorp, Raiden, Goro, Kano, and now Kung Lao.
That's 6 characters from MK1-2, none from MK3. If Lao is back I'd safely say either Liu Kang or Kitana will be back which would make 7. Which would leave room for only one MK3 character???
I think we can officially end that previous theory lol.
