Smoke spotted in Mortal Kombat X? Kotal Khan and Ferra/Torr's character variation animations show a grey, ninja-like figure

Six of Mortal Kombat X's characters have been unveiled so far, but we may have just caught a glimpse of another classic ninja warrior in NetherRealm Studios' upcoming title.


CD Jr., a prominent NRS player in the fighting game community, spotted something very peculiar in IGN's recent MKX gameplay demo. When hovering over Kotal Khan's "Sun God" variation, it appears as though the character is performing his Sun God Choke attack on a grey ninja that resembles Smoke. You can also see this same figure in one of Ferra/Torr's variation animations.

Whether or not this means Smoke will return as playable in Mortal Kombat X is still yet to be determined, but we know that the NRS team is fond of dropping cryptic hints on occasion, so the idea may not be too far-fetched.

Do you think this mysterious ninja is indeed Smoke? Or is this just a basic character model simply used for demonstration purposes? Let us know in the comments section below.
The clip in question begins at around 4 minutes into the demo.
