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.

I'll be massively disappointed if those are the competitive variations. Kabal has neither his air hook or his air dash. Those were the funnest things about the character
and she doesn't seem to look bald either by the silhouette, its looking like the classic slicked back icy hair to me
yeah I was worried. One of my favorite things about her design is her Ice hair though in this one it looks more slicked down than spiked up
Why would some of iations be missing a slot? God this whole custom/preset thing is a huge debacle. Whichever pro cried to them and caused this decision needs to be flogged.
I guarantee you the game is not coming out with any pre-sets that don't take advantage of every slot. These are pre-patch, last second kits, there is no way they are going to condemn certain characters to only two slots in ranked/tournament.
Shirai Ryu Fire Garden stage sounds sick.

And 2 unlockable stages is interesting considering it looks like variations of Kronikas stage.

Also they really created a "tournament" stage this time.
Why are some of the variations missing a move? Like only have two 1 point moves picked? I assume this is a day 1 patch thing maybe? It shows a jax with only 2 slots when we know both of jax's variations already and its missing one of the moves.
It actually has 3, the person can't show tournament variations so he is going into custom and setting it up the way it shows in tournament. He is hovering over the 3rd move without selecting it.
