I didn't know about Kittelsen involved in the game story, I imagine because MK11 must be seconds after MKX.
Talking about rumours, that scene of Liu Kang and Kung Lao Shaolin Monks style smells like tag team to me.
Also, Kronika and Geras. If they are not enemies as the leak said, can't see why both would be split.
So far Kronika and Kitana are the only characters that I saw in the videos that I'm really excited about.
Skarlet is the only one out of the first 7 that I'd most likely play as.
I hope those 7 (or the classic 6 characters) will be in a demo.
