The latest Mortal Kombat X trailer is a look at the friendly Cage family: Johnny Cage, Sonya Blade, and Cassie Cage.
Okay, fine: they’re less “friendly” and more “a bit dysfunctional”, what with Johnny and Sonya being unhappily divorced, and all three of them being highly-trained hand-to-hand combatants with a penchant for snapping bones and pulling apart ribcages. This trailer gives a pretty good look at the sort of brutality all three of them are able to dish out, as well as a few quick glimpses of the family relationship.
Other than confirming Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade as playable characters, the trailer offers a quick glimpse at Kenshi. I don’t think there was any sign of him in the actual fighting segments, but he was standing around listening to a conversation. I’d say it’s likely he’s playable, but I’m not sure this is a confirmation.
Considering how shit I am at fighting games, I’m looking forward to Mortal Kombat X far too much. Not long to wait, though, as it’s due out on 14 April.

When not writing about games, Tim can occasionally be found speedrunning terrible ones, making people angry in Dota 2, or playing something obscure and random. He’s also weirdly proud of his status as (probably) the Isle of Man’s only professional games journalist.
