I think Reptile returning is a good thing. Reptile is one of the most popular characters in the series and has been in almost every MK game since MK1. I think they can give him proper development for once with Shao Kahn gone.
WHY REPTILE?!?!!?!???? Because hes AWESOME!!!
Cause, it's Reptile and he was apart of the OG characters!
Reptile looks and plays awesome.
I hope Liu Kang will be in this game though :/.
The Emperor, Liu Kang.
1. The mask opens up (in addition to having a metallic look to it)
2. Reptile's tongue now being present as an in-game weapon adds to his look like never before
3. Bones are on his V-neck now and arranged in a tribal-like fashion
4. The hood has a silver material stretched over the black, meaning it is double layered. If you pause the reveal trailer at 1:03, you can also see there are line patterns on the side of it
5. The back loin cloth is shorter this time around
Those are just a few that jumped right out at me. Why don't you name some actual specifics instead of saying "loin cloth, mask, etc." AKA things that are pretty much staples in EVERY ninja's costume in Mortal Kombat?
I think it is a universally accepted opinion that this was the most hated design of Reptile in the game's history. I deviated from the ninja gimmick way too much for fans to take seriously. Funny thing is: this particular design followed Reptile's other hated design. Purple parachute pants, anyone?
He wears a hood and a mask.
He wears a V-cut vest.
He wears a loincloth.
He wears arm bracers.
He wears shin guards.
Its the same basic elements. You are right, the details are different, but the elements remain the same, and they go back to the palette swap look.
I honestly think what Incubus (and others) wants is a human-looking Reptile. They probably miss the original design. I don't fault them for that, his MK2 and Trilogy costumes were great! Still, the reptilian aspects make him standout amongst his peers in the ninja category. It also allows for more details, like the scales and tongue. I still say it is different. What exactly would it take in terms of a design or costume for you to say, "Hmm, that is out of the ordinary for Reptile?" I'm interested in hearing this...
What I want is for NRS to scrap the palette swap ninja look and try to make him look unique!
I prefer Lizardman, from Soulcalibur, over Reptile to be honest. In my personal opinion, he looks a lot better.
"One Kiss and You're Dead"
It makes sense that he would be included for the simple fact that he was never killed in MK9 is reason enough for me. Add to that, Reptile is a survivor, he's gonna always find a way to survive. He looks awesome. I ve never been a reptile fan but I have to say he looks pretty beast this time around.
