After Freddy was revealed to be the fourth DLC the only thing we never learned was whose skins would be included with Freddy and in the Compatibility Pack #4. At Comic-Con they had Unmasked Sub-Zero from Mortal Kombat 3 playable, but no news on the second skin. Until now that is, the second skin will be the first alternate costume for Cyber Sub-Zero. Here's a look at the render:



And here is the Gameplay video for the duo.



I am glad to see Cyber Sub-Zero finally get an alternate, even if it's similar to the previous Cyber Ninjas. It gives everyone on the main roster an Alternate costume now.

Unmasked Sub Zero = EPIC!!!! Classic CSZ = waste!!!
August 5th, 2011 11:10 AM CST - luosnomed

Im more than happy to see an MK3 costume. And while i do think NRS is being lazy with the palette swaps, oh well. Theyre free so we cant ask for much. Cant wait to get them!!!
August 5th, 2011 11:16 AM CST - TaBB3rnackle92
Very excited, I love Cyber Subzero and I am stoked he Finally got an alt.
August 5th, 2011 11:35 AM CST - Patrick McCarron
Keep in mind complainers that this is the FIRST alternate for Cyber Sub-Zero, he has no other skins. You may think it's just a simple "lazy" "palette swap" but it takes far more than just changing the skin color to make everything work right with the character's moves, fatalities, etc. All the animations and other related code for the character need to be redone to look right and tested heavily for glitches and differences between the main costume. It's a good amount of work we're getting for free. I would much rather have this skin than yet another Smoke or Scorpion skin as people were requesting. Would it have been cool for others with two skins to get a third finally? Sure, but only after every other character has a second. It's possible we may get more paid skins in the future too, just this is the last free pack that comes with a DLC character. Time will tell.

That's very true, but I think a lot of fans were hoping for CSZ's ending costume instead. This retro one looks great though, I'm looking forward to it. Like I said in another thread, actually makes me want to play him more.

i think they all look great

Stop complaining. Don't be greedy and accept what you are getting.
August 5th, 2011 11:54 AM CST - Spawn16
I agree with the OP,cyber-sub had 0 alternatives.He deserved one,as so all DLC characters.In my list i had mk3 sonya and first of all reptile in human ninja form(from the artwork book)but that is personal opinion and nothing more.Good costumes from NRS and i am sure more will come,so no need to shout and complain...
August 5th, 2011 11:56 AM CST - DCR
The UMK3 ninja outfit looks awesome. I can't wait to get one for Scorpion, Ermac, Rain, and the others.
August 5th, 2011 12:22 PM CST - musgrave999
I would of loved a palette swap for cyber smoke... but now im gonna really work on cyber sub, appearance and costumes for me are a big part of who I choose to really dedicate to, I absolutely love it #1 was definately Noob's MK2 Alternate color (smoke as his shadow) but #2 for me is cyber sub's

Pleasantly surprised about retro Cyber Subby. For some reason I wasn't expecting unmasked Subby to have the scar, I like it. In the words of Fluttershy, "Yaay."
August 5th, 2011 12:35 PM CST - Commander
Not interested. I don't like either Cyber Sub-Zero nor unmasked Sub-Zero, to begin with.

Can I ask what post previous to this comment required you to respond with this statement? One of you just had a post saying "To all you complainers..." which I assumed was for the future ones we would have to deal with cuz I hate em too, but from what I see these people are giving their opinions. I hate complainers more than anything but I'm pretty sure no one really complained. I just saw a post from you two in the MK1 section 7 years ago completely blowing up and calling him such an idiot because he simply did not use the search button. I come to this website for help and to share my opinions, but sometimes I wonder why the people in charge are the way they are. I just got a thread moved cuz it was kind of similar to another thread or something which obviously was overlooked and I never got my answer thanks to that. I hope this post doesn't cause any problems as I'm simply just making an observation. All I want to know is what previous statement made you guys reply about complainers, so that one day when I'm really not complaining I don't have to deal with this. And does the fact that I said I really wanted cyber smoke in my post make me a complainer? Because I just really wanted him but love both of these new costumes. Just wanna know what to say and not to say so that things can be the way you guys want it. Thanks.

Klassic Cyber SZ Somehow reminds me of the comic book/mugen character "Hydro"
August 5th, 2011 1:10 PM CST - kylerandom199
He does look like Hydro, pimppaperclip. Umasked Sub-zero is pretty awesome; definitely going to use it on my Subby from time to time.
August 5th, 2011 1:18 PM CST - Ermac210
MK3 Subzero is great, but the cyber costume is just a waste of time and demostrate how lazy the NRS team is =( anyway I'll download it 4 free.

Boy, am I glad it's not a Cyborg Smoke costume! It still gives hope that there will be a DLC Cyborg Smoke down the line. I was planning on giving Cyber SubZero some more playtime as a main, so maybe this costume will be my incentive.
August 5th, 2011 1:48 PM CST - Sky Valley
gonna pass on this one I always used to make fun of unmasked version because of how stupid he looked, and cybersub has never and will never be retro. oh well, maybe next time there will be some I want
August 5th, 2011 1:49 PM CST - TheNeutralGamer555
So This Is The Pack I Wont Buy Freddy And Wont Donwload The Compability Pack Screw This !
August 5th, 2011 2:33 PM CST - AlistairWonderland
I am glad that Cyber Sub Zero did get a second costume, now the dlc characters need some theirs. The unmasked sub zero would look better in my opinion if it actually looked like the costume he wore in MK3 while unmasked.
August 5th, 2011 2:52 PM CST - Craig Dobson
lol.. state of unmasked sub zero... size of his thumb!!! NRS need to seriously employ some professional artists....

I think its time we move on from ninjas I would like them to move on from classic costumes all together, as they look like ps2 graphics. I really want some good Alt costumes now
August 5th, 2011 3:36 PM CST - FuBi0
Sweet! Hmm now all that's left on my wish list is Cyber Smoke DLC and Sonya/Jax MK3 skins.

They didn't really work hard on these ones (MK3 Sub-Zero looks like an action figure), but they ARE free. If they make ones you have to pay for they will probably be quality costumes like the original Klassic Costumes. Some new alts would be nice, but I doubt it.

You call it laziness but its called cost effectiveness. They aren't gonna sink a considerable amount of money into a free comp pack. If they did that then the dlc wouldn't have made it very far. But rest assured that NRS is owned by a huge corporation that will find anyway to squeeze cash out of you. So any MK kostumes that aren't palette swaps will possibly be made but will cost you.

Ah, Sub-Zero's scar is pretty nasty. I love it. I'm so happy to get unmasked Subby and hoping this isn't the end for the retro costumes.

Not really... The differences make it look much better for me! MK2 is my favorite klassic ninja costume.

These are cool, but the Unmasked SZ isn't Henry Rollins enough for my tastes. That spindly neck is weak.

That's something that I would pay for, though. I'd GLADLY pay for an MK 1, MK II and MK 3 Klassic pack, in a heart beat.

So would I. ESPECIALLY an MK3.

I'm loving the unmasked Sub-Zero A LOT. Been waiting on it for a while now. Although, I thought he was going to be asian like his story video but oh well. It's free. Cyber Sub-Zero, meh, oh well. At least he has his own costume now:DD.
August 5th, 2011 7:40 PM CST - Gurimmjaw
Definitely getting this for the Retro Cyber Sub Zero costume. Unmasked Sub Zero I do not care about.
August 5th, 2011 8:28 PM CST - xamoel
Cool, but mk3 subzero doesnt use that "ninja" pants
August 5th, 2011 8:30 PM CST - Lord Deimos
Lame character, lame costumes. Now I don't have to bother. Thanks NRS. Now if only they had given us the real UMK3 Sub Zero or any other ninja. I want all of the MKII and UMK3 ninja costumes. I would gladly pay for that!

I'm starting to think MK should include a costume editor so everyone can make whatever ouftits they want.

Soul calibur may not be near as good as Mortal Kombat, but when it comes to Alt costumes, it kicks mortal kombats ass. SC2 had 1 primary and 2 alts.That was awesome. SC4 had only 1 alt, but let you customise a total of 8 alternate costumes. Wish they knew how to handle alts over at NRS

Its not that costume either. It is the UMK3 Kostume. Look at the design. They just took the mask off. Obviously NRS thought that the MK3 version of Sub-Zero wasn't the greatest kostume. And they could easily add a mask and palette swap this kostume for all the UMK3 ninjas. Very cost effective.

As long as he doesn't look like he's turning a crank while wearing it in MK9, I think it looks really good.

I don't care about unmasked Sub-Zero, I like the masked one much, much more. But damn, that CSZ UMK3 costume is enough for me to finally pick up on that character. Simply amazing! Wish Reptile could get one as well, in green. lol And lol@ the Hydro talk. Of course he looks like the Hydro, Hydro was a rip off an MK3 sprite turned into blue by a fan. It's dumb to compare something official to a fanmade sprite. He looks like Cyrax and Sektor, but in blue. That's what he looks like.
