Muimui turned out better than I expected. Looks very fun.

Kukri is very reminiscent of Gaara and Kan-Ra. He looks awesome. Hopefully he's not as painful to fight like Kan-Ra was.

Both characters look really fun.

Did not expect a sand user.

Definitely that Kukri looks like a mummy.. Unexpected. I liked  :)

Mui Mui looks good and fun, but is not the type of character I like.




Well, just let me say No Mai NO BUY.

Well that was way different than I expected. I thought for sure they'd officially confirm Joe.

Mui Mui seems interesting and I liked her burn to fight slots. I think the first combo may have contained a rekka like chain, she has equivalents to the anti airs of both Yun and Yang, a throw that sends the opponent a distance away, and then there were her supers, one interesting anti air-ish attack, and a projectile. Interesting character so far by the uniqueness of her moves.

I wouldn't have guessed we'd be getting Gaara I mean Kukri today, so far I count a projectile, a weird tatsu like move, a teleport, what might count as an air projectile, what may be an overhead,some kind of suffocation throw, and some sort of slide for his normals and specials, then some kind of psycho crusher and whatever that last one was for supers. I don't know if he's going to zone or be more of an all rounder but my guess isn't a rushdown character.

Short trailer but the characters looked like a lot of fun to use.

Mui mui looks like the solid & annoying to fight type character. Looks like a rage of the dragons style of fighter. Kukri looks to have tricky movements like the ninja's lin or duolon. Maybe from the same clan? Anyway, if the rest of the characters look this good then that's great for the game.

I thought the guy talking at the end is Kukri. Much like how Ryo has talking at the end of his reveal or vice at the end when she was revealed.

I guess Mui Mui is going to be in my team. She seems to be fun character.

Kukri on the other hand...  That hood is good at hiding his face. I wonder does he have good reason for that? Does he have face of Raziel from Legacy of Kain.... I got some Mortal Kombat vibes from that teleport.

Kukri is a typical knife from Nepal.

I'm liking this guy. The more I watch the trailer, the more I like him. He could be part of my alternate ninja team.

I wondered what my sister meant when she asked "Does Kukri have anything to do with Nepal?" when I showed the trailer...

Kukri reminds me of kabuto off naruto shippuden or even Terumi off blazblue...

I remember that from a Final Fantasy game. The spelling was different, I think.

Check out Noob Saibot in MK9. That's my immediate reaction. Kukri is the most interesting of the two to me. Muimui is a not too terribly offensive cutesy character.

My money is on Kukri been from the Hizoku clan, he gives me so much Ron vibes.

Mui mui is ok, but definitely not my kind of char.

Translated some of the txt about Nemo's stream today. The most useful information it says is about it being preparation for the event on 4/25? Please cover the game system lol.

Hah hah, I guess that I thought of that character, although my only "legal" expereince has been PC version of Mortal Kombat 3. To think that my brother had the chance to buy Jazz Jackrabbit 2 back then....

Could be, but I thought he was related to Those from the Past. On the other hand, it was implied that Ron had some interaction with Saiki, so who knows...

Agreed. This stream could be like an unofficial "gameplay mechanics trailer" that many of us have craved. It starts at 9:00 pm in Japan, right? Looks like I'm going sleep deprived tonight.
