New Mortal Kombat X Fighter Revealed

Today, Ed Boon revealed a new fighter for NetherRealm Studios upcoming game, Mortal Kombat X. Much like Raiden, which was revealed at EVO, this new fighter is one of the original fighters.

Kano has been in the series since the first Mortal Kombat game came out in 1992, and the new trailer shows off Kano’s various fighting styles. For Mortal Kombat X, just like the other fighters, Kano will have three unique variants of play style. The new trailer also reveals a new stage called “Jungle”.

  • In the Cutthroat variant (with a green laser), Kano will use his enhanced skills with a knife to get in with devastating combos. Kano will also pound on his heart to power up his upcoming attacks.
  • In the Cybernetics variant (with a red laser), Kano will use his lasers to keep opponents at bay and will have quick combos relating the the laser. He will also use grenades to start up a juggle or stop aerial attacks.
  • In the Commando variant (with a yellow laser), Kano will use wrestling or UFC moves to perform powerful grappling moves. His grappling will allow Kano to counter high and low attacks. The video ended showing of a bit of Kano’s nasty X-Ray and a tease of one of his fatalities.

Mortal Kombat X will be released in 2015 for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox 360.

My Opinion:

Kano is one of mymost favorite fighters in the series, and having him back makes me excited. Considering that there is Cassie Cage, it shouldn’t be too long before they get the rest of my favorite fighters; Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage.
