There'll definitely be more skimming than we would ideally like, but I think that given how little attention Scorpion received in MK9, his development will get much higher priority this time around. Something like what [MENTION=6443]Ermac210[/MENTION] suggested seems likely.
Wall of speculation INC:
1. We can basically rule out Kenshi's chapter coming after Johnny Cage's, because NRS logic dictates that Kenshi and Scorpion must fight for Scorpion to redeem himself, and Johnny Cage already beat Scorpion up. It's not at all like NRS to repeat enemies that quickly.
2. Does Kenshi even get a chapter at all? Weeks ago, I speculated that Kenshi would get the first chapter in the game, based on his involvement with SF and his future history with Scorpion, but now that we know he doesn't get the first or second, I have to wonder if he gets one at all. Let's say there are 12 like in Injustice, I think Johnny Cage, Raiden, Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Kotal Kahn, Cassie, Takeda, Jacqui, Kung Jin, Erron Black, and Kano are all more likely than Kenshi to receive one. That brings us to 11 right there. MK9 and Injustice had a repeat chapter, so let's say Kotal Kahn gets two. That's 12 chapters. Done and done.
3. Scorpion having at least one chapter is guaranteed, and he would make a great transitional character to help NRS travel through time. We've already been introduced to him in chapter 1, then imagine he gets chapter 2: he can still fight Kenshi (and someone else) during the NRW, then at the 15 year mark we can see him spar with Takeda, and then in the present he can fight Raiden after Raiden comes to recruit Takeda for a mission with the Special Forces.
Food for thought, I guess.

You, sir, have missed out on some astounding games, the least accomplishment of which is to have redeemed the existence of QTEs. I urge you to rectify this situation posthaste, forthwith!
What's so good about them games? I kinda played DAI but it wasn't good as everyone was making it to be.
What? Dragon Age isn't amazing. Even Final Fantasy more amazing.
Well, we don't know the number of chapters. Could be 16 like MK9. Remember, MKvsDCU also had 15 chapters total.
About the characters getting chapters, I agree with all of them except for Kano and Erron Black. I do hope they give us a villain chapter (besides Kotal), but I'm not holding my breath.
Also, if anyone's getting repeat chapters, I doubt it's Kotal. I'd say it's either Sub-Zero or Scorpion.
What? Dragon Age isn't amazing. Even Final Fantasy is far more amazing.
When you say QTE in Mass Effect and Dragon Age, do you mean when having to choose a conversation point? Because those aren't QTE's.
