‘Ello, baby: Kano confirmed to be in upcoming fighter Mortal Kombat X

NetherRealm Studios has recently revealed a new gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat X, featuring series favorite Kano. The trailer showcases his various play styles, which include “Cutthroat,” “Cybernetic,” and “Commando.” Take a look as Kano battles the new character, D’Vorah, with narration by creative director Ed Boon (those wings and bugs really creep me out).

Kano Returns In New Mortal Kombat X Trailer

A leaked video earlier today let the cat out of the bag regarding Kano’s moves, but Warner Bros. let us know that the video was not the final version. Warner Bros has now provided the final and complete HD version of that video, which helps to show off Kano’s brutal combat options.

In the video, we learn about Kano’s return to the upcoming Mortal Kombat X, and his three distinct combat variations: cutthroat, cybernetic, and commando. In a fight against new combatant D’vorah, each of the three variations offers new moves for the player. Cutthroat focuses on knife attacks and powerful slashing and throwing attacks. The Cybernetic variation focuses on long range and defense, with eye beam and grenade assaults taking center stage. The Commando build focuses on grappling skills and counters.

IGN spoke with Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon about Raiden's return, revealing that he will have three different variations: Displacer, Storm Lord, and the tentatively titled Thunder God Raiden. Displacer leverages his teleportation ability. Storm Lord allows him to throw out lightning bombs that will create a tether of electricity between them. Finally, Thunder God Raiden focuses on delivering big damage attacks.

You can check out the trailer below, which was recorded directly from the EVO 2014 Twitch stream, so apologies for some of the strange audio.

Ed Boon, Creative Director at NetherRealm Studios and whose name has been synonymous with Mortal Kombat since its inception, proclaimed:

“Mortal Kombat has always been about over-the-top, visceral fighting and with Mortal Kombat X we wanted to utilise the power of new-gen consoles to give players our most intense game yet. The team has worked hard to make sure Mortal Kombat X delivers everything fans expect along with new characters, new game modes and an all new graphics engine.”

For the first time in Mortal Kombat’s history, players will be able to choose between multiple variations of each kombatant that impacts their fighting style and strategy. New kharacters will join returning favorites like Scorpion and Sub-Zero in the battle between good, evil, and decent attire for the female fighters.
