What's new

Spoiler Thread. People officially have the game already (NO STORY SPOILERS)

Only 1 week to go and it looks like it's a reasonable time for the flood gates to be open.

The other spoiler thread was locked so I think it's a good time to make one again where people could post their spoilers.

C'mon guys they're not going to make Tournament presets without filling all of the freaking move slots. Jax's preset here has only two moves when we KNOW the real Tournament preset has 3.
These presets are exactly the same thing as we saw in the Beta, unfinished presets just so players can build upon them with kustoms for casual play.
 
I wonder if we're gonna see any significant changes to frame data as well. 'Cause speaking as a Skarlet main, some of her specials in the beta were pretty poo compared to what they replaced.

And beta Scorpion without Misery Blade? Big oof.
 
Anyone thinking that these variations are complete or final is just LOL.

Look at Kitana's "Her Highness" variation in the leak, which is the one 16Bit outlined in the last Kombat Kast. In the leak it only has 2 moves, but we know it has 3 moves given that 16Bit explained which three are included.

Everyone will have 3 moves (or use 3 "slots" if they have moves that take up 2-3 slots). Scorpion will have a misery blade one. Stop taking these seriously, thanks.

This is true.

Something to note though:

1. Both of Kano's were the exact same from the Tournament Mode Kombat Kast, BUT the name of the variation was different. It was Dirtbag in the Kast and it says Rotten Scoundrel here. It was called Ripper in the Kast and it says Evil Glee here.

2. Jax's were the same too, but in one of his there was a missing slot. In the Kombat Kast it was filled with something. He also had different names on his variations.

3. Kitana is missing a slot just like Jax.

It might be that in tournament mode the slot is filled with something?
Not sure. Again though, there is that day1 patch.
 
There is no doubt that we get a meaty Day 1 patch including for the variations but i just wondering why are there so many unfinished variations when they finished the gold version that goes on the disc to print.

Shows me they really needed a long time to figure this out how to handle tournaments if they working this stuff out last minute.

Some may be legit though. Some of the Kano ones match the confirmed variations shown in the Kombat Kast. I also doubt any of the ones with only 2 slots is final, but some of these are the real deal I guess based on that.
 
tbh I'm surprised there's more "Scorpion without Misery Blade, noooo!" posting rather than "I sure hope Scorpion is now playable without Misery Blade". Am I the only one on that boat?
Definitely feel this way. "Chain Reaction" Scorpion, which seems to be called Hellish Inferno in the retail leaked copy, is the most unique version of him ever created. It would be sad to think that the only version of him usable in a competitive mode has to be based on cancels the way Hellfire Scorpion was in XL. His kunai is his trademark, I would love to see it used more often and as the focal point of his fighting style.
 
I'm pretty sure she's just part cyber or more Android like Detroit: Become Human. I'd find it weird for her achievement to be called 'Cyber Initiative' only for her not be at least a lil cyber-ish.
Oh ok I didn’t know that. The grandmaster of the cyber Lin Kuei wasn’t cyberized either though.
 
I'm not sweating these pre-sets. Jade's are the same as they were in the beta and we know that's getting changed.

RIP if she doesn't have her extended strings in a pre-set. (Although, I have a sneaking suspicion that they are going to do away with that "move" and just give her those as part of her base set, as she really does feel incomplete without them. If that's the case, those pre-sets don't look half as bad).
