Gentlemen, we can rebuild it. We have the capability to make the world's first enhanced store. Steam will be that store. Better than it was before.

So you're telling me that I can finally have Christopher Lambert's Raiden fight Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa's Shang Tsung?

Where Robin Shou @?
Bet there is a movie pack 2 coming. Original data miners found these voices in the game files also found movie Liu Kang and movie Kitana. Add a movie Shang Tsung skin and there’s your 3 charcaters.

Still waiting for this game to be 100% content complete to buy it at one low price, but I'm looking forward to eventually playing it with these skins
Modern fighting games like this are slowly morphing into full GaaS / live service games. They will probably continue releasing new skins like this for the game even after it's fully fleshed out.

Case in point, the "Ultimate Edition" just released for next-gen consoles and includes the Aftermath DLC along with the first two season passes.


And yet, even if you buy that $60 "ultimate edition" game, you'll still be missing these skins. And about a dozen other cosmetic skin packs like these:




They'll probably be releasing a new skin pack every month or so, but I doubt they'll ever roll it into a full retail package. Then comes the inevitable Mortal Kombat 12 release and the cycle starts anew.

There is only one Mortal Kombat film. I do not recognize this Raider or this movie.
Also acceptable: the one where Jeri Ryan played Sonya Blade.

No Reptile no buy. That was the best scene in the movie.
It was cool for a minute then got bullshit quickly. Reptile totally owns Liu Kangs ass for the first part of the fight then all of a sudden he turns it around and doesn't get s a single scratch on him? Wasn't Liu Kang even kicked through a brick wall?

and with his kickass movie theme:

I wish they'd use songs like this in game, instead we have such a borefest I can't even remember one theme from mk11 wtf.
I love MK11 so much in every way but the music. You're absolutely right, the music is just ambient boring garbage. The one thing Japanese fighters seemed to always understand over western is the importance of great music. It's so weird too, as the Japanese Street Fighter 2 the animated movie soundtrack is garbage, while the western is fucking rad, and the MK soundtrack is rad, so clearly we understand the importance of rad music for movies, but for some reason it just doesn't make into our games, or at least not as often as it should.

If Netherrealm smartens up and releases a movie soundtrack pack, they are gonna make some extremely easy money off of me.

Still holding off buying this until they release the biological female pack that makes them attractive again

Most of them actually look fine outside of Sheeva, Sonya, Jacqui, and Cassie's head. They just got saddled with really awful default costumes more than anything else.

Let me know when MK9 and previous sexy costumes and faces are back in.

I swore this game off due to the sjw/reesetera/CultofTwitter/wokistas/bullshit. Nothing worse than a game company pandering to reeeetarderas yet have no problem with ultra violence. This series was my favorite outside of Soul Calibur (which thankfully still has the sexy, along with street fighter).
