NetherRealm Studios today formally unveiled Kotal Kahn for Mortal Kombat 11 in a humiliating reveal trailer.
Kotal Kahn, the Osh-Tek warrior who made his debut in Mortal Kombat X, was formally confirmed to return in the latest game. The news isn’t that surprising considering the story trailer from a few weeks back confirmed his presence. What is surprising is how insulting his debut trailer is. Typically, the character’s trailer showcases their Fatal Blow, Fatality, and Winning Pose. Kotal didn’t get any of that. Instead, he got annihilated by Jacqui Briggs.
The trailer was more a reveal for Jacqui than it was for Kotal. Still, the Kahn looks like an improvement over his Mortal Kombat X appearance. His animations appear cleaner, and he looks much quicker. Quite a few moves carry over, including his broadsword and sun-based attacks, but he also gets a few new ones. The ability to turn into a jaguar and maul his enemies looks nice. It’s a pity he didn’t get a proper reveal trailer like other characters.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out April 23 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
