    Seems more realistic to me.

    I just hope Reiko is in. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him in game, and feel like he could be an interesting aspect in the modern story.

    Do we know of kittelson had total control on the story in the comics? Or did NRS just give him a guideline? Because kittleson on the main game, maybe his influence with affect the roster . ( Reiko, Havik)

    Re: Mortal Kombat 11 General Discussion Media Thread

    I'm pretty sure that Kittelsen was given a basic guideline as to "these are the characters we want and the ones you can kill off" and otherwise was given a good amount of free reign, which would explain why there were plotholes between some aspects of the comics-to-game story continuity.

    It kinda felt like he was given an outdated script or something simply because when the comic did reference game events they always felt slightly off.

    All MK covers should feature Rain - just Rain.

    Is it possible the game and the books were written at the same time, and Kittelsen was just given bullet points to work off of? "Here's this is basically what we're doing, we need this story by **** date." That would explain some of the discrepancies, as he only had a basic idea of the story. Just a thought.

    Yea that is most likely scenario, as a few of the inconsistencies felt too glaring to not be attributed to lack of info.

    Only THAT would give him the reason. Bruh. Kano ain't Dad material to begin with. Not to mention, how else he could have produced a child. He sees everyone as expendable, has no honor, no loyalty, would sell out his own blood if it paid good.

    The bigger question is, how many different mothers have filed paternity suits against him? That's a lot of child support that he likely didn't pay because he'd rather launder Black Dragon money.

    Boon tweeted that with the caption "Reptile Konfirmed?"


    This appears to be in game. Possibly from story mode, or maybe it's someone's intro where they kill and eat the lizard.

    It could also just be part of the arena, it could just have little things running around.

    I don't think they'd have the camera zoomed in and focused on a background asset like that. This is shot like focus is meant to be on the lizard.

    I really hope they skip story mode this time. Much rather have a Konquest Mode. Highly unlikely though.

    Random thought, I wonder if Reptile is in the game, will he have an alternate timeline version of himself where he's Lizardman? Or will they bring back human Reptile?

    If it were a full screenshot I'd agree with you but they only show us the lizard so they could have easily just taken a screen of it, they could have just done that to show the detail. I'm not saying that's what it is just that it could be.

    Just looks like a background creature, probably from a story mode cutscene. The placement of it is very specific.

    Didn't they explain that the only reason that he looked like human before was due to memory constrains... Doubt they are going down that road again. Which is good, less Clone Wars = better.

    While Kittelsen is a competent writer, and mostly seems a good person, I do hope we never have MK Comics like the last one EVER again.

    The comics were screaming "non canon" from a point in the story. It started VERY good, but I think after Kotal cut off Goro's arms it went sh1t. It wasn't just some small plot holes, there were things that conflicted DIRECTLY with what the game showed.

    But I think this is WBs fault, not even NRS. They probably said "Hey, Kittelsen, write any BS about the theme 'Reiko Accords'" and, as @Commander said, you can kill these and we want these others to appear".

    Is it bad to think that Reiko did some awful thing that made Earthrealm and Outworld come to a non aggression pact? Of course not. The problem is that Kittelsen wrote things that were absolutely off the game (Ermac on Mileena's side, Erron Black's desire of being a Black Dragon, Goro's side in the war and fate, Cassie and Jacqui in Outworld, Onaga and Red Dragon, time mistakes, Kano and Sub-Zero, Sub-Zero and Scorpion, and many more), and instead of saying "I actually didn't know what I was doing because the draft wasn't too deep and I didn't have access to the game script, so I started inventing things" he started making amends like "oh, but Ermac betrayed Mileena, then he went back, but then he betrayed again".

    Ffs, imagination is a good thing but to imagine these things to fix plot holes just breaks the mood.

    At the least this time give the writer full access to the story, to avoid BS.

    I loved how Kotal owned Goro in the comics. And his daddy for a good measure.

    The bullshit is that the comics should have been the game, the game should be NOTHING, that story was just so bad, boring and special forces based. The story in Special Forces (the jax game) was even better than X.

    And people that want human Reptile/Ninja clones back = LOL, why they even exist?
