His ultimate now works on any stage and yet they still go out of the way to drive home the point that he’s the only one in the game to have one. I thought the entire reason ultimates were postponed was due to technical limitations with how stages worked, clearly that issue has been resolved but they seemed insistent that they won’t be added to the game for anyone else on the stream. It wasn’t even a “we’ll see” scenario, it sounded pretty much like we should give up hope.
My question is why? Why overcome this limitation if you only intend to have one character with an ultimate? I vaguely remember it being said that it wouldn’t be worth it to revamp the system to allow for ultimates on any stage just for one character, yet they went and did it anyway. As a long-time supporter of the idea, I’m left scratching my head after this one.
I think its due to the amount of time it would take to do the entire cast. that’s 17 more Ultimate’s plus another 8 for Season 3. that’s a lot of work that they obviously don’t have scheduled right now.
I think after S3 is done that will be there next trickle effect of content like Shadows was this season.
Did they say if Shago will have a Shadow?? I missed the stream.
I just think its fishy for them to revamp this camera system to allow the move to be performed on any stage, then outright refuse to even admit the possibility that other characters will get them. Oh and yes, they said he’ll have a shadow.
I disagree with this. I doubt that’s the reason they couldn’t do it. something as simple as snapping a neck, or freezing someone or burning them to ash in a manner not similar to bones and stuff there’s pl;enty of ways to kill without gore in KI. But it’s a sad excuse they wouldn’t do that because of this.
If they can just do it only on their stae I am gine, but the blackening background can really REALLY help.
I’ll be surprised if we don’t see anymore ultimates going forward. Now that the system is in place, (I’m assuming) it wouldn’t take much more work than adding an extra move for each character.I would expect to see atleast some of the season 3 cast to get an ultimate. The season 1 and 2 cast might have to wait a while to get theirs though.
I won’t let this kill my hype though, Shadow Jago has always been my main, so I will still be landing ultimates like crazy
I’m not a fan of the black screen but as you said its better than nothing. It kind of takes away from the awesome look of the different angles in the ultimate though… at least they made it “canon” though as the shadow comes from Shago and blacks out the screen like he’s pulling you into some shadow dimension.
