    Cool stuff. I really liked MK Deception. And what little I played of Shaolin Monks was quite good. I am quite excited.

    Looks like the plauge of oversized and poorly balanced character rosters has spread to 3D in spectacular style.

    I'll wait for this one to hit the bargain bins.

    Every character? Then that means... STRYKER! HELLS YEAH! :rock  :rock 

    I love Rain's new look. With him in the game, they've finally made the palette-swappers unique. Although Sektor still looks like a recolored Cyrax, but that makes sense considering the story.

    Considering the raging Shao Kahn/Reiko debate, I wonder how many diehard fans will be pissed off by Reiko's new look.

    Create a fighter sounds cool. Then again, create a character modes usually do sound cool.

    I have a feeling Motaro won't make the cut because he'd be a bit difficult to pull off in the Deadly Alliance/Deception game engine.

    I'm definitely getting this game. I've been an MK fan for ages, and I like Deadly Alliance and Deception, so it's just natural to finish the story.

    Blah, hopefully there'll be a Gamecube version released with some 'new' characters (Motaro?) down the road.

    2D or 3D? I have never really enjoyed the 3D versions.

    My only MK experience is MK 1 on the Master System, and more recently MK Gold on the Dreamcast. But 60 playable characters does sound pretty cool.

    His design. The whole centaur thing is a bit hard too pull off against a bunch off two legged fighters.

    So the game will have 20 Scorpion-ninja characters and 20 Sektor-ninja robots ? Not bad.

    Yes, I exaggerate.

    Sounds fun. I'll have to wait until I see a finished product though. I miss 2D fighters...

    It looks to me like they're MK:D A/Deception-ing all the pallette-swap guys. Like, giving them a personal costume redesign so they aren't just a recolour.

    The Deadly Alliance and Deception were both -surprisingly- decent to play, considering the series' roots, so I've got good hopes for this one.

    Sounds good, kind of like MK Trilogy. In a related note, I picked up MK: Deception Kollector's ed. yesterday for the Xbox. Great game, for those who haven't played, imho .
