Johnny Cage Gets His Own Reveal Trailer for Mortal Kombat 11
One of the series’ original characters is coming back for this highly-anticipated title.
By Jay Gervais
Mortal Kombat 11’s character roster continues to grow and earlier today it was announced that Johnny Cage, one of the series’ original characters, would be appearing in the latest installment as well. This news shouldn’t come as too much of a surprise, considering he has appeared in most of the other games. Have a look above for Johnny Cage’s reveal trailer.
In the video, we can see Cage fighting with Kabal, who was a character recently revealed along with a few others. He also engages in a battle with Baraka, who we’ve known since last month’s reveal event is appearing in the title. Fans may also notice Cage’s appearance has changed somewhat from the last game in the series, Mortal Kombat X, where he had a significant role in the events of that game.
Mortal Kombat 11 picks up immediately after the previous entry in the series, Mortal Kombat X, where Raiden upsets the balance of history after beheading and killing Shinnok. These events prompt a new and mysterious character named Kronika, The Keeper of Time and one who’s apparently been watching over everything that has happened since the first game, to bring order to the universe by whatever means necessary.
In case you missed our coverage on Mortal Kombat 11 thus far, you can check out the game’s first brutal trailer from 2018’s The Game Awards along with another character announcement, where it was revealed that Jade would be appearing in this title.
Mortal Kombat 11 releases worldwide later this year on April 23rd for all major platforms, which includes PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Stay tuned to Dead Entertainment for all the latest news on Mortal Kombat and the latest entry in the series!
