Hmm, y'know what you could do? Watch the web series. The live action one, it currently doesnt have a 3rd season, but the same people are working on a film that'll be in theaters.
Thanks, I'll look up MK9 when I'm free enough to set a few hours aside for gaming. Currently trying to start my own freelance 3d modeling business, and it's been hectic setting stuff up and learning the finer points of 3D sculpting software, but that's another story for another time.
I didn't know they had a recent MK series. The last live action MK series I watched was Konquest, and that was ages ago.

Not just the new characters either, wich are their own can of worms, but certain things threw it off, like why does Ivy still look so young, does she even age? I feel like something in the story says no, but that doesnt feel right. Speaking of Ivy though, her dad, my main Cervantes, why doesn't he look all undead anymore? He looks normal now. Raphael looks normal too, but apparently he's still a vanpire? Nightmare's just a regular guy in armor now too? Seigfried without Soul Edge? And what about Asteroth? He's just inconsistent.
Wow, I'm glad I didn't touch the SC games after the transition to PS3. I read the reviews and didn't like the super-short levels for each character.
Wait, Nightmare's a normal guy in armor? Now that's just stupid, Namco. He's a physical manifestation of Soul Edge, not an actual human.
That said, I heard that Tira's become the new fan favorite of the franchise. Her moves were always a little wonky, and despite being a speed character, she's not quite as agile as, say, Taki.

I particularly like Z.W.E.I because he's got some Jojo **** going on and mad combo potential. But why the replacements? And Don Pierre as the only DLC? Come on now... You couldn't give us Zasalamel? Talim? Setsuka? Anyone? Anyone but Don Pierre, he's just stupid to me.
I heard that Sophitia's kids are 2 of the main characters, and that they were beyond lame.
Wait, they removed Talim from the roster of regulars?! Oh, come on! She's as iconic to SC as Taki and Ivy!

Honestly, the news put me off to the point where I stopped caring about their later releases and haven't played any SF games for the PS3. Even when a friend invited me to his place for a few rounds of SF IV, I insisted on Tekken instead. Well, if they stop that shenanigans one day, I'll start buying SF games again.
