A new update for Mortal Kombat 11 has removed the pixelization from Kabal’s screamer brutality. And, unfortunately, it doesn’t look very good. That is one curtain that should not have been peeled back. Honestly, it doesn’t seem like it was ever supposed to. Some secrets are better left uncovered.
Kabal’s screamer brutality in Mortal Kombat 11 is a call back to his fatality from Mortal Kombat 3. In it, he takes of his mask and scares the opponent to death with his hideous face. Well, that move is now a brutality, and Kabal’s face is censored through pixelization. Because, you know, it’s so scary. So, that’s kinda clever, right? It’s sorta funny, saves you animation costs in theory, it’s all good. Plus, considering that MK11 features versions of Kabal without the scars, it helps fudge the whole thing.
Then, the new update dropped, and uncensored the brutality. And it looks… very, very wrong. You can check out what it looks like in the video below, but here’s the basic gist. A few wormy strands of hair grow randomly and stand on end, and his eyes bulge cartoonishly. Oh, who am I kidding, it looks absolutely awful. I understand that they had to make it “universal” in some way, given the massive amount of customization you can pull off in MK11. What we ended up with, though, is something that looks terrible in every variant. Honestly, best to just put the censorship back up.
