I think that IS the case. He can't morph into everybody because that requires loading every characters full model and data for matches with Shang, which would be impossible without a reasonable load time.

yep thats what i've been hearing. And the two times he has been shown so far (once in the video after the demo i believe) he only morphed into who he was fighting.

Thats pretty poor if you can only change it into a mirror match

Hasn't been confirmed but no one has seen otherwise. Seems pretty lame, but it probably isn't super easy to load in the character models. It was a lot easier back in the day of cartridges and 2D sprites.

That's probably why he had no shapeshifting powers whatsoever in previous 3D MK games. At least they've tried to bring back some of his powers.

    KORNdog that's my understanding of it anyway based on the little i've read about it. seems like it'll happen though. (4 Hours ago)

    KORNdog less risks (not like ubi are particualrly great in that regard anyway) and just barrier for them to do their job. (4 Hours ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @Moonwalker: it would be a conglomerate and that can be creatively very limiting if they don't fully understand the industry they've just dipped their toe in by buying a major publisher. (4 Hours ago)

    Sdarts Also, for the first time in BioWare's history, they are finally using full facial capture to record the actor's performance. Plus its the first time the Mass Effect team is using the Frostbite engine. (4 Hours ago)

    nostradamus @Moonwalker: well, i'll on a leg and say its a "lie". It seems on par with DA:I, and if they think thats fine for a reveal trailer, then it doesn't bode well for the final product. (4 Hours ago)
