This may just be speculation but what if one of the producers or the camera guy from GameTrailers took these pictures while they were doing the Jax and subway reveal when no one was looking?
Am I the only guy who misses the pallet swap ninjas? I mean, it's cool and all that they have the ability to make everyone look different and original, but yeah... the lack of pallet swap charm really hurts my feelings.
I think there is lack of red color in ermac's new look. When I look at his head and shoulders, my first thought is about Reptile's MKSM costume. Maybe we can't see his whole colors but with a little bit more red I would love his new look.
Goro was always my favorite sub-boss! A MK four-armed MK champion, how cool is that?^^
As for the palette swap ninjas: I love them. They symbolized MK. Some people who don't know MK very well say always kind a "uuuh MK is too bad to make different characters"-thing. But there is more. They always had a standard ninja costume but in different colors. But I can understand that NR Studio can't do it anymore. They have new opportunities with next-gen. Until MK3/UMK3 ninjas were only palette swap. Since MKDA they all are different. I think the best thing was in MK4. Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Reptile(ninja) looked similar, but not exactly the same way. They had different masks. But in MK movie too, BTW I like ninjas in MK movie. In MK2 movie ninjas suck
I'll say this, I bet that they are unhappy that these images are being posted by whoever it was.
They are not being posted originally to TRMK, but being passed around the community by whoever first discovered them. We will gladly take down the posts if requested, but so far haven't heard anything.
Whoever took the photos likely should not have been taking photos at all, but defied that and did so anyways. This is also the reason we're not running a story about this on the front page, we'll wait until characters are officially announced. I believe Ed said himself in the Game Trailers piece, the final roster hasn't even been determined yet.
Ok even though is really good proof im finding one thing that makes me still not believe....On twitter he said"I don't get it...how is this a "leak"? http://www.hadoken.net/?p=2208&cpage=1"
I love ermacs look, and goros, in fact, i was never a big fan of the whole palette swap, it all just seemed like they had to do that to save money and it was just cheap, and what are the chances every damn ninja will just happen to wear the same outfit, and everyone wearing a different color?!?!
