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.

    GriftGFX Oh no, a familiar game design mechanic that's actually pretty benign in the grand scheme of things. They ruined BoTW! (lol) (1 Hour ago)
