Kano Goes Commando in New Narrated Trailer

With Gamescom 2014 just days away - NetherRealm Studios Creative Director Ed Boon has helmed a new character preview trailer starring Kano! The latest European timed exclusive comes courtesy of Eurogamer and features the klassic warrior first revealed by GamePro Magazine!

There's a lot to be excited about in this latest reveal, which tells us a lot, and shows a little bit more! The trailer offers a decidedly more aged and mechanically upgraded version of Kano than appeared pictured in German GamePro [full story], suggesting the first concrete example of how Mortal Kombat X will adapt fighters across its 25 year story mode.

Like the Raiden trailer before it - Kano's Boon narrated feature highlights the Character Variation system that dictates fighting styles for all the fighters. Cutthroat (Enhanced Kombos), Cybernetic (Long Range Zoning) & Commando (Grappling Counters).

Kano's variations show exciting versatility from the Black Dragon villain, with excellent sharing between the trademark attacks he's utilized in the past. The Cutthroat style utilizes new focus on the bandolier cybernetic heart reactor that recalls Killer Instinct's Fulgore and his overclocking gimmick. Cybernetic shows strong aerial attack and defense with prominent use of cybernetic eye lasers and more. Commando shows a brutal grappling style with knife fighting giving the style a suitably brutal edge. These styles also come with varied glowing colors in Kano's vastly upgraded cybernetics -- an organic visual alteration.

Kano's evolved appearance isn't the only new element on offer. A rumoured Jungle arena is finally on show, with backstory adding to the tradition of mythology that lies behind most Mortal Kombat stages. Located in Outworld, it hints both at an unaccounted for race -- and also the continued significance of Outworld to the main plot. As to who this forgotten race is -- it conjures the likes of Reptile, but we wouldn't want to assume anything this early! For all we know, it could be volatile insects who once called this jungle home.

"We take the fight to the jungle - ancient ruins overgrown with wilderness that was once home to a now forgotten Outworld race."

Kano battles newcomer D'Vorah in the trailer. She and Sub-Zero have featured recently in graphic break downs of their own three-mode Character Variations. Both were featured during Sony E3 launch presentations in June [full story].

Mortal Kombat Online had high hopes for a character like Kano. We're thrilled with what has eventuated. The aged version recalls 1995's character-defining film performance by the late Trevor Goddard, with exactly the kind of cybernetic accoutrement we would hope for from a 25 year time leap! The stylistic tones of camouflage pants and a bare chest are quite understated for Mortal Kombat -- a welcome naturalistic shift with just the right blend of Mad Max tinged future grunge to make use of the new direction.

Fans within the MKOmmunity have already been energized by this exciting pre-Gamescom reveal. Do you think this is it for the German trade fair cycle? Do you like what you see? Register to immortalize your thoughts on the Mortal Kombat X forum!

RE: Kano reveal trailer (also jungle stage)

OMG! Bye bye Kurtis Stryker and Jax!

This Kano is AMAZING! I'm in love with his Laser-style, that is by far the best variation! Just what I said, more technology on Kano!

Love the jungle stage, it looks pretty! Too bad D'vorah didn't really showed anything new...

The Fatality looks cool, tho we didn't see the entire version of it yet.

This means that Kano isn't the one shown next!

Wow! I'm loving the counter style, I think it was called Commando? That and the lazer/grenade style. He looks good in my opinion.

Also, what the hell happened to his stomach? It looks like he got attacked by something vicious, like its got tons of scars.

The character select screen: Will the top row be returning characters and bottom row new characters?

RE: Kano reveal trailer (also jungle stage)

I love how his cyborg pieces changes color depending on the variation. But when Boon says he's "deadlier than ever" because of those pieces, Mr. Boon, I think you meant to say "faster than ever."

This is by no means a complaint, but my goodness he is freakishly fast.

OK, I take my words back.
Kano looks awesome and brutal. More brutal than ever before. I like his variations and how differences between handles in his costume.

New arena is great.

Looks like he cut out Hsu Hao's chest piece technology and stole it for himself.

I think it's an awesome update for Kano. He looks pretty cool and definitely like the badass he is supposed to be. Unfortunately his variations are confirming the variation trend theory I have....

Can't wait to see the full fatality. Also how many characters do they plan to reveal before release? Haha if this keeps up, surely we will see all of them right?

Very nice. Glad to see a valid confirmation of an original character that isn't boring me to death as of late.

I also noticed that D'Vorah referred to Kano directly by name. Maybe they become enemies or something

It would've been nice if his trailer shown him fighting Cassie.

Cassie: Kano!
Kano: You're pretty AND over the head! Just like your mommy and daddy.
Cassie: No one insults my parents, including you!

That was awesome. Kano looks fantastic, more brutal and faster than ever. The stage was amazing! I'm loving the stage detail. Such a sucker for the stages they create.

RE: Kano reveal trailer (also jungle stage)

My god.

Alright, I've watched it a few times now so a few thoughts...

1. The tattoos are back!!! First time I've ever been excited to see Kano. I love his little beard-tail. I'm not much for grapplers but his Commando variation will probably be the first I try. All those counters? Awsum. The Cybernetic variation is the next most promising. And the chest laser? Fantastic.

2. That arena looks outstanding. Home to a forgotten race, eh? Reptile or D'Vorah, maybe? And yay! Another interaction I like. That head slam into the statue was great.

3. Best X-Ray I've seen yet. That chest slice was just...oh my word.

I can't wait to see the full blown Fatality. Just that little bit of it was exciting.
I think they're getting great responses from these videos, so it's safe to assume that many other characters will be revealed with a video or at least have one following their reveal.
