The Hollywood star is back for another Mortal Kombat appearance. Via IGN, Johnny Cage has officially been revealed to be apart of the Mortal Kombat 11 roster. You can check out his full reveal trailer down below:
Just like in many of his past iterations, the Mortal Kombat 11 version of Johnny Cage still appears to be a quick-paced character with combos as a heavy part of his skill-set. The Oscar-like trophy to the chest was a nice touch, as was the stunt-double and photograph attacks featured earlier in the trailer. But, there’s a good chance that fatality shown at the end will be the main talking point amongst fans. In pure Hollywood fashion, it took multiple takes for Johnny to be able to fully decapitate Kabal. This is one of the more creative fatalities the Mortal Kombat series has shown in a long time.
Johnny Cage joins the Mortal Kombat 11 roster along with Jade, Scorpion, Raiden, Sonya Blade, Sub-Zero, Baraka, Skarlet, Geras (new character), Kano, Kabal, D’Vorah, and Shao Kahn (as a pre-order bonus). Characters that are rumored to be playable are as follows: Cassie Cage, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, and Kronika (newcomer and the main antagonist of Mortal Kombat 11).
Mortal Kombat 11 will feature a gear system mechanic similar to that of 2017’s Injustice 2 and 2015’s Mortal Kombat X. You’ll be able to customize every playable character to your playstyle and change their look with new cosmetic items. For those who pre-order, you will get access to both Shao-Khan as a playable fighter and the game’s beta, which starts March 28th.
The official release date for Mortal Kombat 11 is April 23rd, 2019. You can purchase it for PC, Xbox One, PlayStation 4, and the Nintendo Switch. To see more of Johnny Cage in action, check out IGN’s Twitch stream, where more details were revealed about the character.
