Let's talk KABAL!!
looks like it, i didn’t notice them calling out any official variations, maybe they won’t exist at all in this game. they did mention everything is subject to change at this pointSo did they only show custom creations and not the three ranked/tournament legal preset variations?
I also want to know if the cancel can be done at any point in the dash animation, it sorta seemed like it could only be done at the beginning. Would of course be great if we can again cancel right before it hits the opponentSo far, kinda mixed on a few things. Super happy he's back, he is my favorite character, but theres a few things that bother me.
I wish they had focused on his rushdown more than making him a sort of midrange zoner hybrid, maybe that wont be the case in all of his variations. Not a huge fan of him throwing the saws now and the lack of gas blasts, I figured they would keep it in some capacity, just not like how it was in 9. The literal "gas" blast doesnt look that good to me, but I like the float jump thing. Super cool.
His design is decent, i'm glad it retains his color scheme, but his hair looks hella wack to me. The mask wouldnt bother me as much if he had his long flowing hair or pigtails. Maybe that'll be an option with the Deception mask, and if it is, i'm completely fine with the design overall. Wasn't a huge fan of the alt designs shown, especially the maskless one, but he's gonna have a lot more stuff anyway. I like that regular skin/burnt skin/revenant are options.
His hooksword play looks AMAZING. His speed looks great, he's flashy, doing all sorts of cool shit, he looks outstanding. I'm super happy with how they did him in this regard and i'm hella pumped to play him. Last thing, i'm REALLY surprised NDC is in in some capacity, but i'd like it if they added in that cancel animation from 9. He doesn't even move now when he does it. Super minor complaint.
Good shit though, NRS. I'm happy. 7-3 Kabal, bitches
I could've sworn one of the announcers at the gameplay reveal show a few weeks ago confirmed that custom characters with different movesets from the 3 preset variations wouldn't be allowed in ranked (and presumably tournaments) like it was in I2.looks like it, i didn’t notice them calling out any official variations, maybe they won’t exist at all in this game. they did mention everything is subject to change at this point
Revenant Kabal did meet revenant human Sub though.Kabal did meet him only when Sub was in Cyber form. Seeing the human Sub is definitely a first for him.
There isn't anything clear yet about tournament variations really being a thing at all. We haven't seen any yet, all the presets at reveals were customized and apparently different in London and LA.So did they only show custom creations and not the three ranked/tournament legal preset variations?
I stand by my guns that that's a huge flag that he's Original Timeline Kabal. That and the fact that he's all done up in Black Dragon gear and sounding quite nefarious.Kabal doesn't remember Sub-Zero.. Story mode will be interesting..
