Quan Chi: Finally found a way to kill me?
Kitana: I know of many!
I'm not gonna lie, I'm let down...literally 2 people who were "dead" are now back...I was hoping for new faces
As am I.
It doesn't even seem like Kung Lao was dead when Raiden asked where he was and Kitana is alive while Quan Chi is alive, so this smells of a retcon, which sucks because the MK9 story was pretty well written.
According to this, I'm guessing that NRS retconned Kabal, Smoke, Nightwolf, Jade, Liu Kang, Sindel and Stryker too.
What a let down.
