    18. Kung Jin
    19. Fujin

    23. Daegon
    24. Taven
    25. Onaga (Final boss. Possessed by a bigger threat and more powerful deity than Kronika such as the one in Sonya's MK11 ending. Or maybe the One Being.)

    Pre-Order Bonus: Motaro (With 4 legs.) OR Kintaro (Has Goro's and Sheeva's moves.)

    Kombat Pack:
    1. Raiden
    2. Kung Lao

    We can have him be DLC instead of Nitara (since Mileena is already in the roster). In fact here's another MK12 Kombat Pack idea....

    Kombat Pack 1 :
    1. Raiden
    2. Reptile
    3. Jade
    4. Cyborg Smoke, Cyborg Cyrax, OR Cyborg Sektor (With the moves of ALL cyborgs in previous games.)

    Are you high?! What makes you think it's a good idea to have Raiden, Kung Lao, and Jax as DLC instead of being available out of the box?! You know fans will riot over that; especially Raiden, since he's essentially one of the main protagonists of the entire franchise!

    As strange as it may seem, I agree with you 100% on this.
    With MKX and MK11, it seems that NRS has deemed the must-have characters to sell an MK game as:
    - The MK1 original 7
    - Kitana
    - Kung Lao
    - Jax

    Everyone else is replaceable on the main roster for MK, but those seem to be their bread and butter characters.

    Man..... Jax. Should have been retired from the games 10 years ago. Just some bad GI Joe and a never-seizing roster spot taking futility. SF has really damaged this game in the last 3 entries. I prefer the 3D era mythology-based characters over these new SF

    He's enough of a fan favorite to justify a roster spot. That should be reason enough. And besides, Special Forces has been a staple of MK since Day 1.

    Re: Future of MK

    Technically, Jax is an MK1 character since he was going to be "Kurtis Stryker" until they decided to go with Sonya if I recall correctly. I think Kitana even was in the works during MK1.

    Hopefully, it'll just be a soft reboot that kind of skips through time

    1. Scorpion
    2. Sub Zero (Bi-Han or Kuai Liang as a Legacy Skin for the other)
    3. Johnny Cage
    4. Cassie (Sonya as a Legacy Skin)
    5. Jax
    6. Kung Lao
    7. Baraka
    8. Mileena (really wish we got clone bodies in Story Mode so we could get away with doing fatalities)
    9. Kitana
    10. Tremor/Geras (Love them both. Geras could always come back since he got eaten by a fish)
    11. Kano
    12. Ermac (maybe a Jerrod skin just for cosmetic or story)
    13. Kenshi (Eric Meyers/Vergil actor as a scan would be cool since he played him in the MK Machinima series IIRC correctly)
    14. Takeda (he's the most marketable new-gen character) (or use Fox as an alternative skin if he doesn't fit story-wise)
    15. Erron Black
    16. Reptile
    17. Tri-Borg
    18. Raiden (Ashrah could work as a Legacy skin if they really felt like altering certain animations and the lightning effects).
    19. Liu Kang
    20. Kotal
    21. Rain
    22. Noob Saibot (Again could be substituted by Reiko)
    23. Skarlet (But please give me a reason why she wears long-fitting clothes instead of bathing in her enemies blood)
    24. Jade
    25. Goro

    DLC
    1. Motaro (Anyone would sacrifice all of the DLC slots for a return of Motaro. Even as a sub-boss character that could only be utilized in offline with no variations)
    2. Daegon and Taven (One of them can be a legacy skin of the other)

    New Additions: A New Nightwolf (never really cared for old Nightwolf or his playstyle. He was pretty good in MK9, but just wasn't fun for me personally), a Black Dragon/Red Dragon Member.

    Re: Future of MK

    It's impossible to know where the story will go next. I do feel like Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Raiden, Liu Kang, and Sonya will always return because I view them as the big 5 of MK. They appear in the most games out of everyone else.

    Re: Future of MK

    Imo, again, it seems like the MK1 OG characters, Jax, Kitana and Kung Lao are the 10 characters that NRS deems "must have" for any MK game.
    This is just my assumption going off of MK9, MKX and MK11 where those characters haven't skipped out on a single game. That said, at the Brasil Games Show Boon said that MK11 was the end of this story and MK11 ended with another Armageddon (a temporal one this time).
    So, based off of that I'm led to believe that MK12 (whenever it comes) could very well just be another MK9 type of reboot.

    The current Trilogy (MK9 thru MK11) lines up with the old timeline if you look at all of the right story mode clues between all of the games and the MKX comics.

    - MK9 = MK1 & MKII thru alternate UMK3, Liu Kang is once again killed off (now a revenant and not a Zombie). Which brings us to......

    - MKX = beginning is pretty much MK4, then goes off on another tangent with Quan Chi and Revenant Liu Kang (as opposed to Zombie Kang) joining forced to bring Shinnok back, and then we end up with a Deception / Dark Raiden once again promising to do whatever it takes to make sure that no one ever invades EarthRealm again (wonder where I heard that before?).

    - MKX Comics = Reiko and Havik are the new Deadly Alliance, with the Blood Magik being the reason for joining forces, rather than Shang Tsung and Quan Chi in the old timeline trying to revive the Dragon King's Army.

    - MK11 = now a super powerful being (Kronika instead of Blaze) sets events into motion to destroy Raiden's forces in order to balance things out, but instead ends up causing a temporal Armageddon.
    Yet again, the time has been reset, but instead of Shao Kahn being victorious at the end of Armageddon / beginning intro of MK9 it's Liu Kang and Kitana at the end of MK11.

    Re: Future of MK

    A playable version of Kronika and Onaga should be a DLC. just like Gill and Seth in SF5.

    Also, MK11 should have non-playable hidden characters in arcade mode like Reptile in MK1 and Jade, Smoke, and Noob Saibot in MK2.

    The only "must have" characters should be Scorpion and Sub-Zero.

    Re: Future of MK

    OK, so if spoilers are true NRS will just reboot the events of MK11 with messing with time travel and Aftermatch 2 will be a reboot of reboot of reboot and true master of puppets will be revealed as... nah, look yourselves into spoilers. Plus, the new rumors about Jade's origin...

    I like how they're diving deeper and deeper into 3D era, first that gorgeus Deadlly Alliance / Deception costumes, then this.

    They are finally fixing things.

    Re: Future of MK

    It'd be a good idea utilize 3D era characters by having them be possessed by the likes of stronger boss characters from previous MK games or having the abilities of boss characters from previous MK games. Similar to how Zafina (Tekken 7) has the abilities of Azazel (boss character of Tekken 6).

    * Li Mei being possessed by Cetrion.

    * Ashrah being possessed by Kronika.

    * Reiko being possessed by Shao Kahn.

    * Any of the other male 3D era characters (such as Taven, Daegon, Kobra, Mavada, Kai, or etc.) being possessed by Shinnok and/or Shang Tsung.

    Then we can have Kira replace Kano with similar moves but also be able to summon rockets from the sky.

    You'll believe God is a woman.
