MK11 Roster - 29 Characters Confirmed

Idk I just feel like 3 is a low number for a pack. That'd leave us 34 Characters.

MKX ended up with 33 so it'd have one more character than MKX, but Injustice 2 had 38 characters.

I just feel like it fits better to have 28 base roster (including Shao Kahn and 3 unlockables) then have 6 Characters in KP1, then 4 in KP2. Cause then it'd leave us with the same amount of characters as in Injustice 2.

You also have to take Guest characters into account. MKX and Injustice 2 both had 4 guests, I don't necessarily see them stopping this trend considering they're their biggest money makers. I feel like it'd be a set up for disaster to only have 3 characters in one pack and only have 1 be an MK character. Unless KP1 is even between 3 MK characters and 3 Guests, and then if KP2 has 3 characters it could be 1 guest and 2 MK characters. But I feel like people would flip out of if it was half and half (Honestly, NRS can't win when it comes to Guests and people who aren't in the casual audience)

MKX had 8 DLC + Pre-order bonus
Injustice 2 had 9 DLC + Pre-Order bonus
It just makes sense for MK11 to have 10 DLC + Pre-Order bonus.

Then to add onto that, with 38 Characters the select screen would be looking so nice and symmetrical (The way it currently looks lowkey urks me.)


Look how beautiful and symmetrical that is. Wow. Gorgeous. A sight to truly behold. Honestly. Truly.
Yeah, I don't know. You could also make the argument that if it is 9 DLC, why wouldn't they be included in the premium edition like Injustice 2's 9 DLC. I just think that people are expecting the roster to keep getting bigger with every game even though it has to stagnate eventually due to time and balance. I'd personally be fine with 25 base roster characters, but I guess we'll see when the game comes out if those empty slots mean anything.

Yeah, we'll see. Also, I don't mind the roster number hitting a plateau, but it's weird that instead of being even it'd go down. Seems backwards to me.

But, with the "Why aren't they included in the premium edition" argument. It was the same for MKX. KP1 was included in the Premium Edition, but KP2 apparently wasn't. So, albeit disappointing, it's not a surprise that it'd be the same case here.

Let’s see whose fire burns hotter
I’ve got a question. When was Cage given his real name? I’ve heard people said he got it in MKX, others say it was in the beginning of the series, but I don’t remember any game where he was called like that.

Not sure if this has been mentioned, but on the official site, 2 of the locked slots have no reaction when you mouse over them. They're at the bottom, possibly alluding to still being worked on/saved for later, but they're sandwiched between other icons that react to mouse over, so... Just an observation.

I hope Shang Tsung actually has a lot of moves NEXT to his shapeshifters ability, also some moves of him turning into a freaking cobra in one of his moves, that would be awesome.

Honestly I don't think Cetrion is gonna be unlockable. After all she's a new character, they want people to use her right off the bat.

Shang Tsung being in was true, except he is DLC. So I guess Mileena and Shinnok are in, in some capacity.

No reason to assume that at all. Shang Tsung being back was a very easy guess to make. If anything, the fact that he's not unlockable indicates that particular rumor was bullshit.

What if her name isn't even Cetrion . . .

Can't wait for her and "The kollector" to be revealed to see if those names are correct or just guesses based off half infos someone had.

This is my guess, honestly. They probably want to actually incorporate shapeshifting somehow as best they can.
Yes. I think it's necessary. That's Shang Tsung's USP (unique selling point) as a character. I want very badly to see him shift effortlessly from fighter to fighter.

Honestly, I wouldn't be surprised if their names are different. But at some point, I can see them having been Cetrion and Kollector. Simply because Geras' name was Terminus or whatever and they changed it. They still even have 'TER' on the Steam Database for him. (Although Cetrion sounds more 'official' of a name than Kollector)

yeah, I thought about that ... since was proved that "TER" as Terminas, and in the end, Terminas was changed to Geras, it's very very possible that Cetrion ("CET") and Kollector ("KOL") could be only temporary placeholders names, and in the final version of the game, their real names are totally different. Kinda, NRS , for the new characters, used provisory names during the development phase, until define what names the new dudes gonna have in MK11 :D
