Another character has joined the ranks of Mortal Kombat X. According to a German magazine, franchise veteran Kano will join the fight. One of the leaked images suggests that his fighting styles will be wrestling, and that he will possess a flying knee special attack.
Ed Boon has teased more character announcements for Gamescom, and Kano was more than likely one of those announcements. Kano was one of the few characters to survive the events of Mortal Kombat (2011) so it isn’t surprising to see him pop up again in Mortal Kombat X.
This brings the current roster to eight: Sub-Zero, Scorpion, Raiden, and Kano return alongside new characters Cassie Cage, D’Vorah, Ferra/Torr, and Kotal Kahn. Mortal Kombat X is out sometime in 2015 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, PS3, and Xbox 360.
