    The first ever Mortal Kombat 11 Kombat Kast took place today, and boy did it have some goodies for us. Tyler Lansdown was joined by Ed Boon, Derek Kirtzic, and Steve Brownback on the couch for a new look for the Kombat Kast room.

    Don't be afraid of change!

    Ed takes the opportunity to tell everyone that not everything is final, and that everything is set to change if they wish. He mentions that people must chill out, essential, and that they are listening to what they are saying. Steve also says that the threads on frame data are unnecessary, as they are simply not indicative of what the frame data will be like when the game launches.


    Kabal is officially announced by Ed Boon, and he is said to be returning, in the same vein as Baraka in the sense of returning characters.

    Here is his trailer here:

    Here you can see some of his new moves, new look, Krushing Blows, and Fatal Blow.
    Kabal keeps his hookswords, and in this game, he focuses a lot more on his hookswords in battle, turning him into a more of a mid range character. Many of his specials have been said to return, but some will not.

    Krushing Blows
    Steve takes this opportunity to explain that Krushing Blows all have individual uses and individual triggers for each one. You will be able to switch between having the option of having Krushing Blows be automatic or having the option to hold down the button you are using to confirm it so that you can choose your use of the Krushing Blow. You can only use each Krushing Blow once per match, so if you do it, you will not be able to do it again.

    Geras is shown off a lot more, as he did not get much explanation during the reveal event outside of a trailer. He is stated to be a mixture between a grappler and space control, using a ton of sand themed special moves including a 4-second time reversal.

    The stream concludes with a fight between Steve and Ken, with Steve playing Kabal and Ken playing Sub-Zero. Steve is able to win 1 game, but Ken won the second game when Kabal's Fatal Blow did not finish off Sub-Zero.

    1. Will Shaggy be in Mortal Kombat 11?
    No. The mystery van will not be running over Scorpion any time soon.

    2. Will there be Towers with character endings?
    Yes. You will also be able to see what has happened to some characters that are not returning.

    3. Does wakeup roll have frames that can be hit out of it?
    Yes, but ONLY with throws. Otherwise they are invincible.

    4. How do we acquire gear?
    Just playing the game. It is also coming through game modes that are not revealed yet.

    5. Will Mortal Kombat 11 be region locked?
    No, it will not be.

    Mortal Kombat Mobile:
    Mortal Kombat Mobile will have three new characters being revealed. Scorpion has already been revealed, and they released a short video showcasing his Fatal Blow move from the game. You are able to follow them on Facebook here and Twitter here.

    Videos will be added when they are available.

      Same here. Also the point values and what moves can and can't be woven together.

      At this point, I would ask what evidence do you have (in what they've said) that moves won't be available? Because it seems to me you're looking for a disconfirmation of something "obvious" more than anything else.

      This seems like evidence to me that he is not certain YET. Here's hoping they're all included, but he was not able to say for certain

      Foist, I didn't post that article, so don't at me bro.
      Second, emphasising "I imagine" and "I don't think" doesn't erase "we don't want to leave things out" and "they'll encompass all what that character can possibly do".
      Third, for all the emphasizing and theorizing I've seen in this thread and others, I am yet to see any actual proof that they said anything close to they won't be. Like literally, none.
    6. pure.Wasted
      Because that's how it was in the most recent NRS game with customizable movesets. The vast majority of moves were only available for casual play. So my expectation upon hearing "customizable movesets" was that unless explicitly stated otherwise, it would function similarly to Injustice 2.

      But Rearawt already provided a quote that strongly suggests intent to function differently from INJ2.

      lol. literally just answering your question. Naturally I'll at you, bro.

      "I imagine" and "I dont think" are not the same as "yes" and "certainly". 3 months before release date and he could not give it a hard confirm.

      What? Only 3 months left? But there's like 15 empty boxes on the select screen. How will they make it in time!?

      I'd summarize it as an embarrassing and very amateur stream, and I turned it off quite early on. No one looked like they wanted to be there, the equipment wasn't working, and the sound was fucked. Do they not rehearse these things? They had an extra week for this one anyway.

      Bingo and it's sad how no one noticed this actual fact or brought it up except for you o_o.
