i still don't know to this day what his clocking on MK4 is all about .... what is that portal all about? where does he end up? Is he and Noob one in the same, if so, he would be sub-zero's brother, right? I've forgotten Reiko's story too :?
i dunno. on kahn's bio it said he replaced himself with a clone so kitana wouldnt find him. it also said reiko was thought dead until mk4. maybe reiko is the clone? so shang tsung and quan chi both killed him? i dunno, just a theory
Goraka's idea would serve a better answer. But they didn't mention it if he was him. Reiko is to me just another plot hole in the MK universe... One I WISH WOULD DIE IN THE MK4 GAME WHEN I WANT HIM TO INSTEAD OF ALWAYS THROWING IN THAT STUPID FINAL BLOW THAT FINSIHES ME!!!!! :evil:
Yeah he isn't really much of a character, so why bother with him?
yeah the wu tang game used the same engine n stuff. it pretty much was the same game, just without the french maid who orgasms after tearing peoples limbs off n stuff like that. it was planned for a UK release, i got the beta cos my uncle writes for a game magazine. thats how i got my beta of MK tournament edition too, although the bastard doesnt save. luckily though, our saviours the media stepped in with an army of worried parents and rescued us all from having fun once again
If I remember correctly, Reiko replaced Noob Saibot in MK4 (Noob was in the original lineup in very early releases of the game), which explains the similarity in their moves. The Shao Kahn connection was just something placed to screw with us (any MK fan knows that's nothing new) and should be disregarded completely.
So basically, Reiko was just a last-minute addition to a game in an attempt to have a slightly more original character take the place of a palette-swap ninja.
