NetherRealm Studios has dropped a trailer revealing Kotal Kahn for Mortal Kombat 11. He’s a relative newbie to the MK universe having debuted in Mortal Kombat X but Kotal Kahn is, nevertheless, a beloved brute, all-around baddie, and possessing the superhuman strength to match his superhuman pecs.
For the uninitiated, Kotal Kahn is an Osh-Tekk warrior and Emperor of Outworld. He reached the throne by usurping Mileena, rescuing the Empire from chaos and preferring to focus on internal affairs rather than warmongering. All good things come to an end though, and his rule is disrupted by rising local tensions.
Kahn’s solution to all of this is to step into the ring and literally pop everyone’s heads with his gargantuan strength. He’s not a total oaf though, as Kotal Kahn can also summon the power of the sun to power up his abilities. Despite all that strength though, Kahn has met his match in a match-up with Jacqui Briggs.
The confirmed list of fighters in MK11 is now Kotal Kahn, Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D'Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, and Jacqui Briggs.
Mortal Kombat 11 is coming to PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch, on April 23rd, 2019.
