Mortal Kombat is known for sexy female character designs but that would change in Mortal Kombat 11. Art director on the game Steve Beran talked about how the team is approaching female character design in Mortal Kombat 11 and the following is what he had to say regarding the matter:
Our character lead, Brendan George, has been a breath of fresh air of just introducing new ideas. Our design is just getting more mature and respectful. You’re not going to wear a bikini to a fight. You’re not going to be showing so much skin. I think it’s just what the game is about: You’re going in to fight for your life, and you’re not going to be wearing such scantily clad items.
This is something that will disappoint some fans and this is something that the devs understand. He mentioned that this is the right choice for the game and that the team is going to stick with it. Feminists are very touchy when it comes to such things and you can imagine why developers are not taking every small detail into consideration. Games are out under a microscope and people just want to create issues out of nothing. He went on to mention the following:
I’m sure that will disappoint some fans. We don’t have bathing suit fighters, and I think that’s fine. If people are disappointed, I don’t regret making that change by any means.
NetherRealm Studios has already revealed that the story mode will be 8 hours long and that plenty of cools stuff will be coming to the game after launch. Recently the reveal trailer of Noob Saibot was also shown off.
