I have seen the videos and all I can think is they suck!
The main character designer claims that they are doing it for realism, but realism can basically go to hell especially when we're doing a lot of series with alien ninjas, reptile monsters,Nosferatu with Wolverine claw-like swords, Thunder gods, Etc. That's without counting the fatalities which are ridiculously over-the-top.
Putting the female fighters in quote-unquote realistic clothes is bullshit. The clothing is Not Practical for combat as they're trying to claim. Help the bathing suits at the female ninja used in Mortal Kombat 2 and 3 or the gym clothes that Sonya used in Mortal Kombat 1 and 3 are far more realistic than any of the outfits used on the 3D CG versions of Mortal Kombat. One of the most recent reviews was Kitana who's practically wearing a scuba diving suit with a hole in its back and a boob window. These absolutely make no sense given that they practically covered her up from head to toe. Not to mention that the designs are ridiculously busy.
It's funny because the male characters outfits get even more ridiculous in this game but with the female characters they are like: "no they have to be realistic."
It's almost as if there was some sort of double standard at work here. It's a shame that Netherrealm Studios Has Fallen prey to the politically correct crap. Mortal Kombat is supposed to be not politically correct. The borderline racist stereotypes with Liu Kang being a Bruce Lee stereotype, Raiden being a stereotypical Eastern God, Scorpion and Sub-Zero being ninjas in ridiculously bright colors, or Johnny Cage being basically a parody of Jean Claude Van Damme. In later games you got like tractors like meat which were basically a meat bag you have motion capture guy then you have pretty much a fat drunk named after the term for drunk in Spanish.
Irreverence and political incorrectness has been part of an part of what makes Mortal Kombat, well, Mortal Kombat. So it's ridiculous to cater to the Social Justice Crew on a game that's basically Politically Incorrect, irreverent, offensive, and vulgar. It makes no sense.
I'm not asking for a jumbo tits and Mega asses worthy of Sir Mix-a-Lot to be covered by the tiniest sliver of cloth available. All I want is easily recognizable outfits that are based on the characters history. And this applies to all characters not specific to the female characters. ( though they main characters our kind of mix and match based on some classic outfits sadly it's The Awful 3D ones that have been the huge inspiration... like the stupid Shredder Sub-Zero look.)
Seriously what's next Johnny Cage cannot hit women with his low blow? Remember back when people complained about Mortal Kombat violence that for Mortal Kombat 2 they added the Babalities and friendships as a form of mockery? Pepperidge Farm remembers and I miss that Mortal Kombat... back when they had balls... now seems like they have been castrated. Where's that fuck your feelings attitude that the Mortal Kombat of old used to have?
