Cassie Cage, Kotal Kahn revealed for Mortal Kombat X, former character is daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya

Posted by Jonathan 'Catalyst' Grey • June 10, 2014 at 4:08 p.m. PDT

NetherRealm Studios Ed Boon showed some of the new characters in Mortal Kombat X today, Cassie Cage, who is Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade's daughter, and she has a combination of moves from both characters.

Also, we got a better look at Kotal Kahn, the character briefly shown in the gameplay trailer released yesterday.

We also found out that the half-human, half-insect creature is named D'Vorah, and Ferra/Torr is the Master Blaster Mad Max 3 character shown. Ferra is the little lady that rides on Torr's back. He can even throw her like a projectile.

The NRS team also showed off the option where you can select three different versions of the same character, as shown in the images below. In Scorpion's Ninjutsu mode, he actually fights with two swords.

As far as the story goes, it takes place right after Mortal Komat 9 ended, and goes as much as 25 years into the future.

You can expect aged characters, and the next generation of fighters to appear.

Ed Boon said the main bad guy will be a surprise returning character that people won't be expecting.

Colour me Excited.
I like the Variation idea, seems like it will give fresh face to the game and make mirrors not so tedious.
I hope Shang Tsung is in (Likely!)

But yes, and I hope to see more new character, I'm digging the 2 that were shown (playable)

The silhouettes are trolls. Its easy to spot anyway since the revealed 6 are all face on while the rest have some angle to their body, but bottom row, 2nd from the left is Obama.

Though I really like where the gameplay is going with this game, I haven't liked a single new character yet. I'm not against new characters on principle, but if Fujin or Li Mei miss out because of... female masterblaster? That would be depressing.

Seems like only 4 of the characters may be female if I am looking correctly and none of them look like a possible Jade....-sniffle- Guess the female ninjas have finally met the after life for good this time.

#18
sarif2soon said on June 10, 2014 at 3:46 p.m.

Yeah, I'm happy for Johnny for getting some and alla that, but what I'm really annoyed about is the fact that they didn't name her Nicole.

So she'd be Nicky Cage.

Well it can't be any returning boss then, because we'll expect that.

... Liu Kang?

I play for the story. Question remains what happened after the last game. All that happened was predicted by Shinook. Sub-Zero, Jax, Stryker, Kitana, Kabal, Nightwolf, Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Smoke are dead. Sub-Zero in question was a cyborg in the last game so how he become alive and human again is what I wish to know.

BTW sorry for spoilers.

#29

Shinnok is a guarantee and probably Montaro.

Perks in my MK? Just make it a good fighter instead of adding gimmicks like perks,interactables, and guest characters. and bring back the run button. and Drahmin too. 24 Kharacters is weak for a sequel game.

So you can alter some moves for match-ups, kinda like ultras! This one is gonna be so much deeper than 9 i can already tell.

I love how they always take MK to the next level & work really hard on. & there always giving that fresh new look, Select screen,stages etc

Not like SF where they do the same sh^t every game.

#40
maxi2099 said on June 10, 2014 at 4:30 p.m.

Looks like the story will feature only few things of MK4.
Maybe Shinok and Quan Chi ruined the world in this 25 years and Raiden and Fujin are trying to stop then, and that's all...
But at least we have a lot of newcomers. They are doing what Capcom is now afraid to do, put the majority of the "fan requested characters" to sleep and refreshing the cast.

I think the villain will be Lui Kang.

#53
1ButtonDash said on June 10, 2014 at 4:44 p.m.

I guarantee one of her fighting style's is sonia another is cage, then 3rd is prolly a combination. I'm sure she has that move thou

edit: also Kotal Kahn... Shao Kahn's son? I heard a rumor that Shao Kahn was gonna be a playable character, I guess not but this would makes sense if it was. Did Ed Boon say anything about that character?

I like hoe Scorpion's eye fire up when the cursor is on him, NR instills a lot of personality in their characters, and I like that.

urbaan said on June 10, 2014 at 4:53 p.m.

New boss? My guess is the Shao Kahn version of Reiko at the end of MK4 in his ending.

#59
RandomSelectMaster said on June 10, 2014 at 4:55 p.m.

Boon said a lot about the villain. I think it's either Liu Kang, Raiden, or Kitana (despite me saying she is one of the characters playable). I would be super happy though if it is Kung Lao (my fav. MK character). Although I prefer him to be good and the main char. of the series, I would love it if he had such a huge role in this game.

AlphaLegend said on June 10, 2014 at 5:02 p.m.

Im really liking this game and the story!!!!! I really hope out of everyone that died in the last game that they bring back Kitana & Jade from the dead if possible!! Other returning characters I like: Mileena, Quan Chi, Reiko, Tanya, Shinnok, Noob Saibot, & Frost

And what's funny is, Q could be from the MK world cause he has no origin from what we know. If Street Fighter VS. Mortal Kombat ever happens, I don't see the likes of Ryu, Chun Li in the game, but I see Q, Hugo, Twelve, Gill, Urien, Alex, Bison, Blanka, especially Ingrid, and Juri in it.

#66
UncannyChito said on June 10, 2014 at 5:15 p.m.

What about that one chick in Jade's ending in MK9? I hope she is playable and has some significant role for the story. Like who is she?

#67
cadnexus said on June 10, 2014 at 5:16 p.m.

Better be more than 24 characters, however that might not be the real character selection scren.... Well on the last MK I think Lui Kang turned bad, but that sounds like a lame boss character hero on bad. I think it's one of the old bosses returning I'm going with the Dragon King based on the style of the game. Other than that possibly:

Noob Saibot
Reiko
Blaze would be weird to come back
Lui Kang (most lame) because it's lame it might be him lol.

Dragon King would be most interesting to fight as a final boss, and could also have the most interesting design. It would also make sense for him to come back to regain his throne. He's also the least expected.Shinnok might just be a selectable character. Question is, who's the sub boss?

#68

I hope they add a new cyborg. Love my dude Sektor, but I'd like some new cyborg to play with.

My take on Mortal Kombat X so far

I believe the story takes place in a different world, and that's why the characters look "out of place." I happen to like the new characters, and it brings a fresh new look to Mortal Kombat.

Anyone remember Street Fighter 3? Capcom took out many of the likable characters from Street Fighter 2 and brought in many NEW characters. People had to adjust to the change but people fell in love with most of the new characters. If NRS keeps most of the fan favorite characters, I believe people will be satisfied.

Man... the details in this game are almost overwhelming as far as fighting game standards go.

I love the custom dialogue in the intros for the characters. I love how they walk forward on the select screen and show off their powers. The backgrounds are phenomenal explorations of the awesome MK universe. Chucking an old lady at your enemy? BRILLIANT!

Did you guys see the f*cking* X-ray where Sub-Zero freezes his opponents entrails and stabs them with it!? I squealed like a little girl.

I also think that the character variations could potentially be an excellent answer to counter-picking. If done right, it could mean exceptional balance.

There's so many little details that go so far in bringing the game to life and making the characters feel more dynamic than any other fighting game has ever even been close to.

I do hope we see enough returning characters. I don't want a completely brand new cast. MK has a ton of great characters that really shouldn't be forgotten. I'm stoked that we're finally getting GOOD new characters, though.
