'Johnny Cage has a damn good chance of being in the game' - Maximilian covers the potential roster hints from the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event

There are now cases to be made for no less than 12 more additions to the character select screen

It's all speculation right now, but after a handful of Mortal Kombat community members got their hands on a build of the upcoming Mortal Kombat 11 last Thursday, they immediately started documenting all the little potential hints from both within the game and the presentations surrounding it.

Maximilian was amongst those fortunate enough to get some hands on time, and has since produced a video compiling all the known character references we got from the event.

The current character select screen offers room for a total of 25 fighters, seven of which are already accounted for as Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Skarlet, Baraka, Sonya and Geras were all playable at the event. We also know that Shao Kahn will be making his way to the roster as a special pre-order bonus character.

The remaining spots are all fair game at this point, but we've seen more than a few references that lead us to believe (with varying levels of confidence) that Kano, Rain, Kitana, Cassie Cage, Noob Saibot, Liu Kang, Kung Lao and others may be en route.

If we had to call out one character as most likely, we'd probably go with Kabal, seeing as he was directly teased during one of Thursday's many announcements. With their obvious showcasing in the game's story mode, Liu Kang and Kung Lao seem like fairly safe choices as well.

Things get a little more hazy from there, as old school favorites like Kitana, Kano and Rain all appear in stills amongst the game's menus. Give Max's video a watch and let us know who you think will show up on the roster in the coming weeks.
