An old favorite is returning in Mortal Kombat X, and his name is Kano, leader of the The Black Dragon. The devs really have been listening! In the new reveal trailer, we see Kano take on D'Vorah, the bug lady and newcomer to the series. Walking us through Kano's skill set is Mortal Kombat X creative director Ed Boon, a fellow who definitely knows a thing or two about this long-time fighting franchise (hint: he's the co-creator).
Interestingly, Kano appears to be slightly older in MKX, but he remains a cybernetic powerhouse thanks to all those implants. This half-man, half-machine fighter has three distinct variations just like any other fighter, dubbed Cutthroat, Cybernetic and Commando. The first equips Kano with enhanced knife-fighting abilities, leading to some rather awesome unique combos. In Cybernetic mode, the crime lord is equipped with more weapons, like his eye laser and grenades, which are just perfect for long-range or aerial combat. For players who prefer getting up close and personal, Commando might be your go-to option, making Kano a superior grappler that overwhelms opponents from close range.
Mortal Kombat X will be out some time next year, in 2015. See Kano in action in the trailer below; make it all the way through and you'll be treated to his laser-tastic Fatality.
