Here's Johnny! New Mortal Kombat X trailer officially reveals Sonya Blade and Johnny Cage as playable

This morning, WBGames has released a brand new trailer focusing on the Cage family. Snappy dialogue, Fatalities, combos, and more await you. The family dynamic is both hilarious and brutal, especially considering the kind of universe the Cage's live in.

Despite constant violence and the risk of death, the Cage family comes off like they're from a 1980's sitcom. One-liners appear a healthy part of the bloodline. Not only that, but this trailer officially reveals that both Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade will be playable characters in Mortal Kombat X.

It's also worth noting that Shinnok, Baraka, Kenshi, and someone who appears to be Jax (a man with two cybernetic arms) show up in the trailer, though they're not confirmed as playable.

Mortal Kombat X move listings (in progress) added to EventHubs moves database

Mortal Kombat X is set to drop on April 14th of this year, and we here at EventHubs cannot wait to get our hands on NetherRealm's next big fighting game release.

In the mean time, we have decided to begin adding move listings for Mortal Kombat X to our moves database here on the site. As of right now, we have the special move quick lists (seen when the game is paused) for 12 of the 14 characters found on the character select screen during the last Kombat Kast. This includes everyone except for Goro and D'Vorah.

To get these move listings, we had to rummage through every stream and gameplay video we could find online. Though you'll find at least the basics for the 12 MK kombatants, some fighters have variation special moves as well.

We will be adding more special moves to our moves database as we spot them, and when the game officially drops you can expect a fully fleshed out moves section.

For now, be sure to get an early look at the Mortal Kombat X move listings right here on EventHubs!

Mortal Kombat X has seen a huge reveal this morning.

A trailer was officially released today that gives a much closer look at what we can expect to see from story mode once the game drops in April.

We are also introduced to three brand new fighters.

Taking place 25 years after the events of Mortal Kombat (2011), the new generation of characters will discover that Outworld is not the only threat they face. Fans will get a first look at the newest fighters to join Cassie Cage, including Jacqueline Briggs, daughter of Jax, Takashi Takeda, son of Kenshi, and Kung Jin, descendant of Kung Lao.

Shinnok and Mileena also make an appearance in this trailer, however, we don't see any actual gameplay footage of either, leading us to believe that they are merely a part of MKX's story. That doesn't rule the idea of them being playable out just yet, but as of now there is no confirmation.
