At recent preview event for Mortal Kombat X, IGN discovered some interesting news regarding Kitana and some hints at a few more possible characters.

Each character in MKX will have 3 variations that will include unique move sets and play styles. One of Kitana's is the 'Mournful' variation wherein she gets Jade's staff and glave.

Though traditionally, the inclusion of a character's specific weapons would likely hint at their being in the game, the situation here seems to point more toward Jade's demise in the story.

It sounds more like Kitana is mourning Jade's death and using her weapons to perhaps carry on her legacy.

You can see some footage of Kitana using Jade's purple staff as well as exposing her full face below.

Additionally, in one of the tower modes, wherein players will fight under varying special circumstances, Cyrax's bombs and Rain's water bubble were referenced.

Our guess is that this means you'll be fighting while Cyrax bombs or water bubbles randomly appear on the stage to disrupts the flow of the fight. None of the three characters referenced were at all confirmed to be in the game.
