New Audio for Intros/Outros in Season 3

Last Night during my interview with Adam Isgreen one of the questions asked was if there would be any new audio added to the game for characters. For example Orchid has been saying shes 1-step closer to flushing out Ultratech for about 4 years now and probably needs to have a new goal. I’m just posting this suggestion officially in the forums in hopes that since there is 3 months left until release perhaps they could fit this in somewhere.

Having new audio for characters even if it’s just 1 more line I think really spices things up for players and helps them feel as if it’s a brand new game and after last night’s interview that’s exactly what I think they are going for which is a fresh and new impression for people even veteran players of S1 and S2.

A quick suggestion that I think makes perfect sense for a new example line Orchid could say is
"Touch me again and I’ll break your face"


new audio with old intros is not enough.

what we need is new cinematics, with new audio in them ofc.

If it’s going to be just new winquotes I don’t want it.


Season 3 is like 60-80 days out, so I doubt they can just add these in for every character in time for launch when they’re probably hard at work polishing up what they have planned for launch. He implied there are new mechanics and some unexpected things, so it would be great if all of those mechanics and additions work flawlessly for the best first impression.

I think Isgreen followed up with his own suggestion of maybe offering additional DLC packs that include more costumes/accessories, new audio/intros, etc. I like that idea.

Animation would take to much time. Just write some new lines for the voice actors to perform. It works well enough for MKX.

I think it would be cool and viable if there were a few unique cinematics for important and lore friendly MUs like Kan-Ra V Aganos, Cinder V Glacius, and Jago V Orchid that are comparable to the intro that Capcom vs SNK 2 used to have.

Would anyone have ever had a chance to touch orchid???

I agree with the muppet like mouth animation, new audio could work.

‘I saw you comin’ ( Target spotted)
‘You think you have a chance’ (this should be quick)

The way the mouth 'moves ’ anything could be swapped for the flushing lines

‘Let that be a lesson to all who test my firecat’
(One step closer to flushing out Ultratech)

Definitely. Jago has been ending paths so many times, Kan-Ra has enough specimens, TJ knows that some have what it takes to beat the champ and Maya definitely thinks that maybe some are worthy prey after all.
What MKX did with the intros was refreshing, comical and a small addition that was still pretty unique. I’d love to see something like that in KI, character specific intros and outros, if only for certain MUs like Jago-Orchid, Maya-Kan Ra, TJ-Cinder etc.

MXK put a LOT of attention to making sure the mouths sync with the words. Games look really bad when that kind of thing isn’t correct, so i hope IG do fix that issue.

Sure, new audio intros and win quotes would be nice. Outside of a “stretch goal” like Adam mentioned, I don’t think it’s worth the time or money considering the alternatives.

But KI could get away with it since they are muppet like animation

Definetly a fan of of this idea. I’d be all for making this a stretch goal of the next community fund or something. Though honestly, I live for the day I get to see Omen declare “Bow before the herald of Gargos” to Gargos himself :stuck_out_tongue_closed_eyes:

I think it’d be a good thing to have, most certainly. I think it’d be good to re-use the TJ Cinder intro from the trailers, for one example - “Is that the best you got UltraTech?” Cinder flies into place “no” laughs* “try me…”

Kan-Ra: "I sense… An old enemy"
Aganos: Comes out and yells/roars/smashes something
Kan-ra: “Come then. Let us see who will prevail”

Or as an alternative:
Aganos: looks to the sky and sees aportal "Kan-Ra!.."
Kan-ra: comes out of a portal and lands/walks towards his opponent "Do you honestly think you can stop me? Pathetic!"
Aganos: pulls out a chunk/smashes an object “you die now”

as far as I know Aganos can actually speak so that should work.

So long as it’s not a huge thing and doesn’t take too much to implement I’m game.

Can he? I’ve never seen it mentioned in the game anywhere. I thought he just made noises.

It sounds like he speaks during his intro at least and they could make it sound like words to an extent even if it wasn’t obviously speech…

Aganos (smashes rock)

Aganos: (Again, smashes rock)
