Why is this even being debated? There are smarter, more informed, people who already debated this and determined the cover for the game. There is a huge marketing team behind MK at Warner Bros who made that decision. It's been chosen, it's final until they change their minds.
I stated this on MKO, seeing how there's the same problem with people complaining about how Scorpion is on the cover.
If you don't like it, take the paper out of the box and make your own cover.
I don't have a problem with this cover. I like it, and I am not really a fan of Scorpion. In my opinion, I don't think characters should be on the cover, just the logo. They've done it for such a long time, but if it's because they want to change things up, so let it be. I personally don't mind, because it's not like I'm going to stare at the damn thing longer then ten seconds. Heck, I'm more concerned about the back of the box more than the front. I like to read what the back cover throws at you.
Not to mention, I'll be seeing more of the side of the box more than anything, seeing that's how I have my games looking like on my shelf.
If a cover bothers you that badly, I don't know what to tell you. I find it mind-boggling insane how people are so overworked about some of the things that we've gotten. At least be a little thankful that they're revealing things at all to us this early.
Anyone willing to bet that the Japanese version will be much better?
Like I said, it makes sense for NRS to do this in this day and age, where their expectations are higher than when they were at Midway. We may not like it as diehards, but in order to make MK bigger, they need a symbol to be attached to it. The Dragon Logo isn't enough, an uber popular series has to have a character that has to be instantaneously recognizable even if you're not a fan of the series. Pokemon has Pikachu, Star Wars has Vader, and so on. That character for MK is Scorpion.
It sucks beyond belief, but it's just cover art so I don't really care.
It could have a pony on it and I'd be equally disappointed, since it doesn't affect my gameplay.
The cover should be Sheeva doing her sexy pose.
I like it, simplicity at its finest. Also, (and maybe this is a separate thread so apologies in advance) but it would be cool to see box art variants... Like 4 (one scorpion, one sub, one kitana, and one smoke). Kind of like that movie "A bugs life" when they did 4 or 5 different box arts.
