I love the idea, depth and story-wise Metal. And Happy Holidays to all. I definitely good with the ideas on movesets for the returning kombatants. As I thought of the a vicious X-Ray move for him in my earlier posts in here.
Perhaps this time round in the next game, Shinnok realises that the amulet he has got is a fake before he fights the earthrealm/outworld champion and secretly asks Sareena or someone to replace the orginal one Quan Chi has got and thus playing Quan Chi's game against him. I think it would be an interesting twist to the plot, making it much more harder to defeat Shinnok this time round.
Hmmm. Good point, but Quan Chi made the duplicate amulet exactly like the original, but with a flaw that Shinnok cannot even realize until it's too late.
What if Raiden tells him it's fake ? I wonder how things will change from there. Maybe Onaga won't happen? Damn, I'm curious now
NO. WAY. This would be WAAAAAAY to frusturating, to have to go through the fights leading up to him again.Yeah. Shinnok just needs a major appearance overhaul and make the final battle against him more as a scary thing, like "Oh shit!!! I'm about to be up against a very powerful fallen Elder God. I hope I'm capable of defeating him in Mortal Kombat."
Oh yeah. I know it's page out of SF Alpha 3, but I think in Story mode, make the final battle against Shinnok a one time thing. No continues after losing, then we can get the bad ending showing Shinnok finishing off whatever kombatant the player used in battle and laughing menacingly as he finally has conquered Earthrealm and without anymore opposition to go up against his apocalyptic rule. And he'll automatically do one of his two fatalities after the match.
