It was revealed during the Mortal Kombat 11 Brazil live stream event that Brazil will be receiving an exclusive "Kangaceiro" costume for Kano, a character that was only just now announced.

The Mortal Kombat Twitter account also revealed Kano's default appearance. Unsurprisingly, he still has his iconic cyber face plate and gruff appearance.

His left arm has a tattoo on it. This is visible as he is shirtless aside from a strap that appears to hold some sort of cybernetic chest piece.

Of course, it wouldn't be Kano without him holding his knife. This will very likely be thrown as a projectile attack similarly to how he wielded it in previous Mortal Kombat titles.

Despite typically fighting as a mercenary for Outworld, Kano is actually originally from Earthrealm. His accent has always revealed that he's from Australia.

He's previous run-ins with Sonya Blade and Jax (unannounced) has made him a natural rival for them in the past. We'll likely see this antagonistic interaction return in Mortal Kombat 11.

In Brazilian culture, the cangaceiros are known to steal from the rich in order to protest against poverty. Essentially, they are bandits. The concept appears to be very similar to that of Robin Hood.
