Today the team at Mortal Kombat X brings us Kano. Remember that guy from the movie, that one with the half plated skull and the one who got his ass kicked by Sonya. That one!
Narrated by Mortal Kombat co-creator and NetherRealm Studios’ creative director Ed Boon, the new gameplay video features the overgrown Jungle environment and guides players through Kano’s character variations and play styles. Kano’s variations include “Cutthroat,” “Cybernetic” and “Commando.”
Despite being one of the original MK fighters, Kano has never reached the same popularity as say Jax. Here is hoping the latest trailer changes that and show us a shiny side of Kano (Get it!).
Mortal Kombat X will be arriving on PS3, PS4, Xbox One and the XBox 360 come 2015.
The game will be a direct sequel to Mortal Komabt 9, however will not be re-telling the story of Mortal Kombat 4 (unlike MK9 which rebooted Mortal Kombat 1-3).
New characters to the roster are being added and announced with gameplay trailers like the one you see above. The fighting style will borrow heavily from Injustice: Gods Among Us and promises us a new non-linear story featuring both new challengers and old veterans.
I have forever been a Mortal Kombat fan, and I would be relishing the opportunity to lay down some fatalities in 1080p screen resolution display and 60 FPS.
