Fans who have played previous Mortal Kombat games will be pleased to see the return of these three characters.
Here’s an overview of each character, via NetherRealm Studios and WBIE:
Liu KangÂ â€“ The greatest of the Shaolin monks, was an orphan adopted and trained in the arts of combat by the Shaolin order. He was handpicked by Raiden to be Earthrealmâ€™s Mortal Kombat champion and chief defender.
Kung LaoÂ â€“ He joined the Shaolin monks in a quest to become Earthrealmâ€™s new Mortal Kombat champion. Reckless and rebellious, but courageous and indomitable, Kung Lao fights to prove worthy of his glorious ancestors.
Major Jackson â€œJaxâ€ Briggs â€“ He was a decorated veteran of the Special Forces whose life changed forever when he fought in the Mortal Kombat tournament. His duty was now clearâ€”he would defend Earthrealm against Outworld and the Netherrealm.
In addition, the company also released a new trailer, dubbed ‘Old Skool vs. New Skool’, that showcases a variety of past and present character from the world of Mortal Kombat. In the story mode alone, players will take on the role of numerous fighters from different areas as they uncover a new plot in the game.
