KOTAL KHAN AND JACQUI BRIGGS WILL FINISH YOU!
KOTAL KHAN AND JACQUI TO RETURN IN MORTAL KOMBAT 11
NetherRealm Studios decided to skip a week of Kombat Kast to reveal the story trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. Fans were quick to notice that the story trailer featured Kotal Khan and Jacqui (Jax’s daughter). With the cat out of the bag, NetherRealm Studios took to officially reveal both characters during this week’s Kombat Kast episode.
Kotal Khan returns from Mortal Kombat X with a revamped moveset. He resembles more of a brawler than before and in his breakdown video, it was revealed that he can equip totems or transform into a jaguar. The totems can be stacked and have various uses; one totem increases his damage output, while another allows him to heal based on damage dealt. Khan has a total of four totems, but only two can be used in a fight. His jaguar form is also exclusive to a different loadout, further stressing the strategic function of customization among the fighters. Kotal’s Sunbeams return and he now has a sword that can saw his opponents in half too.
Jacqui Briggs also returns from Mortal Kombat X, but her style and design are significantly different. Her style in Mortal Kombat 11 relies more on the Muy Thai fighting style. She also comes with cybernetic legs to match her gauntlets. She’s best as a close-range fighter and almost has a counter for everything. Her gauntlets can launch rockets and she’s very easy to start combos with (she has four cancels), while having various throw options to juggle opponents.
Along with Kotal Khan’s reveal, we learned where he was during the early versions of the franchise. Since the franchise has been building from a reboot, Kotal’s whereabouts were considered a plot hole in the overall story.
While still not an official reveal from a Kombat Kast episode, Jacqui and Kotal Khan join Cassie Cage, Johnny Cage, Kano, Jade, Kabal and D’Vorah as characters revealed after the initial roster announcement.
Mortal Kombat 11 launches April 23rd. Here’s the updated roster:
Geras (New character)
Shao Khan (Pre-order bonus)
