Sub-Zero

I'm very unhappy with this trailer. Happy there's a new game, but I'm already dead. Jeebus, come on. Everyone knows in a fight Sub-Zero would never lose to Scorpion. Even the one time it did happen, it didn't really happen, I just pretended.

Or they pull an X-Men and say "just cuz". In this case though, I don't really care, I'm just happy my beloved HUMAN Sub-Zero is back!

Since when did Raiden have the ability to resurrect people? He tried in MK:D and we got a lifeless killer zombie in Liu Kang.

Bottom line is that we absolutely have no clue, and its up to NRS to inform us of this. My guess is that they're going to pull an X-Men, but hopefully Vogel has come up with some good shit.

Only Shang Tsung can transfer souls into a body. Which is why that theory of him being resurrected by Quan Chi can't work.
More than likely it'll be Subz711's idea of Cyber Sub Zero being cleansed by Quan Chi's Inner Sanctum. The same way Drahmin was in his MKDA ending.


:laugh: @ talking about fan fiction like it's confirmed canon

Everything happens for the first time sometime. Storywise, Raiden need more fighters on his side, fans need Sub-Zero, so it's a win win.

I doubt Vogel will come up with something unpredictable, because fans don't really care how he come back.

NRS should think twice before killing any characters in a first place. Vogel did it in MKDA, then ressurected them in MKD/MKU, did it in MKD intro, then ressurected Raiden in the game, then ressurected everyone in MKA without any explanations...did this again in MK9/MKA..he'll never learn.

Okay but you're basing your assumptions with zero evidence. You're just saying that it needs to happen, so it will. That doesn't mean jack shit.

I agree with the latter paragraphs of your post though.

Canon from MK4 goes that Raiden pleaded with the elder gods to resurrect Johnny Cage to help him fend off Shinnok's claim for Earthrealm. So it's not like he's always failed at bringing people back.

I'm assuming the story could go in the...

"Hey Elder Gods, it's me, Raiden. You know the guy that messes up a bunch but you still leave in charge? Yeah, well I kind of accidentally killed a lot of people and now this Shinnok guy is coming in and he's wanting to fight, and well, yeah, you know, think I could get a few "Get Out Of Netherrealm Free" cards or something?"

...direction.

Wonder how they're going to explain this


My MK9 Soulnado separation theory comes to mind.
Bi-Han and Noob get separated in the Soulnado / he gets cleansed, either giving us Bi-Han and Noob or just Bi-Han Sub-Zero (which fans care more about).

Plus, is everyone all of the sudden just forgetting all of the history between Quan Chi, Shinnok and Bi-Han in MKM: SZ, which took place before MK1???

Exactly, that's a great way to lead in. The fact he beat him before, he can do it again. Maybe Subby is going to be the hero of this game.

Liu Kang can stay dead plz. For good this time. No hook swinging zombie crap either. plz.

Just posting this here as well; the Playstation description for the MK X trailer was a bit more specific than the actual MK Community description lol:

Fueled by next-gen technology, Mortal Kombat X combines unparalleled, cinematic presentation with all new gameplay to deliver the most brutal Kombat experience ever. For the first time ever, Mortal Kombat X gives players the ability to choose from multiple variations of each character impacting both strategy and fighting style. And with a new fully-connected gameplay experience, players are launched into a persistent online contest where every fight matters in a global battle for supremacy.

Multiple variations would seem to explain why Sub is still a ninja in the trailer.
