Cassie Cage and Kitana may have been revealed as playable in Mortal Kombat 11 through official behind-the-scenes trailer

Yesterday's Mortal Kombat 11 event hit fans with a giant wave of information and announcements for the upcoming NetherRealm Studios fighting title.

Sonya Blade, Sub-Zero, Skarlet, and Baraka all returned as playable characters, and NRS also introduced newcomer Geras into the mix. On top of playable fighters, we were given our very first look at the gameplay for Mortal Kombat 11 — and there was a lot to see.

As official Mortal Kombat trailers dropped throughout the day, a behind-the-scenes video from the official Mortal Kombat YouTube channel surfaced online. While a look at the design process and word from the developers about it are a great treat here, some keen-eyed viewers focused more on the potential reveal of characters Cassie Cage and Kitana — and it looks like they might be playable.

During the trailer, we see a very quick scene that looks to be a pre-fight intro from Cassie Cage — a character who has not yet been revealed. While some think this might be Sonya with an alternate costume, we can see that this fighter has two dog tags that say "Cassie" and "CAGE" on them.

It's also worth noting that we now have confirmation of Ronda Rousey being the voice of Sonya in Mortal Kombat 11, and Cassie's voice doesn't sound quite like Sonya's here.

As for Kitana, the quick clip has Cassie saying "Kitana, empress of the dead." She says it in a manner of the character standing opposite her, so if this is indeed footage of an actual fight, the logical conclusion here is that both characters are playable.

It is also possible that this is simply a story mode-specific battle, like we saw in Mortal Kombat X where you could face characters who weren't actually on the playable roster. However, considering the popularity of Kitana and Cassie, both of them being a part of the cast is fairly likely.
