Know Your Enemy: The Fighting Variations of Kano

Mortal Kombat X has invaded Cologne, Germany, where its one of the demo titles on the floor of Gamescom 2014! Creative Director Ed Boon has been dropping morsels of info to attending press, while on the online front - Kano has led the charge as the newest character reveal!

High quality gameplay screenshots and an official render have showed off the Black Dragon mercenary's new look. Now delve deeper into his fighting style with the latest Character Variation infopics:



We've seen these infographics for D'Vorah, Sub-Zero & Raiden, offering explanations for the different Character Variations that adapt play styles in Mortal Kombat X. Of course, the images not only describe the strengths and weaknesses via the developers themselves, but also highlight the visual tells that expose each version on sight.

Cutthroat: In the Cutthroat Variation, Kano has the ability to power up his attacks by pounding on his cybernetic heart. His knife fighting skills are also dramatically enhanced, allowing Kano to execute a number of unique kombos and attacks.

Cybernetic: The Cybernetic Variation unleashes Kano's eye laser and grenade arsenal, allowing him to strike from long range, extend kombos, and defend against aerial attacks. Perfect for zoning, Cybernetic allows Kano to attack from virtually any distance.

Commando: The Commando Variation transforms Kano into a highly-skilled grappler. He is able to counter both high and low attacks, forcing opponents to modify their tactics. Commando is all about grounding opponents and dominating them at close range.

Stay with us as we update subsequent Variations as they become available. If you really can't wait - learn more about Kano's modes in the Ed Boon narrated reveal trailer!

At first I thought his chest pound in this variation was some sort of taunt but it seems it enhances his moves. I am liking all of Kano's variations so far so I will definitely try this one out, though Commando takes the gold

His chest crystal reminds me of those "Simon says" toys where you had to push the button when it lit up...

I wonder how many fans are going to muscle through Variations they don't like just to get the one that looks the most "right". I could see picking the red option. Wauughhh.

I'm using Commando no matter what, and I hate the color Yellow.

Can't lie, I'm a little disappointed we see Kano's variations before Cassie and she was revealed before him. Oh well.

I've been wondering about this too. Admittedly the "red option" is probably what I'd go to lol.

Kano don't care what colour he is. All that matters to him is that everyone is red on the inside.

How is the traffic light his "heart" when he can just remove it without a care? In the intro of the fight with D'Vorah, it was already out and had to be put in place.

Then what about those who might have green blood and insides? Or some other colour?

I can't tell if I like cybernetic the best because of what it does or because it's red.

RE: Know Your Enemy: The Fighting Variations of Kano [2/3]

Seeing this version of Kano has me soo excited with his 3 variants. I think he went from being alot of fans least favorite character to bein on everyone radar again. Kano has always and will be my favorite character and to see this revamp makes me feel awesome. I feel with all this attention and effort that was put into this new look gives me confidence that Kano might play a bigger role in the game and will be in future games

But as far as his variants go, i think Commando will be my favorite just by looking and what its description but i plan on mastering all Variants and kicking all Kano Hater's A$$!!!!!!

3/3


The Commando Variation transforms Kano into a highly-skilled grappler. He is able to counter both high and low attacks, forcing opponents to modify their tactics. Commando is all about grounding opponents and dominating them at close range.

I was never much of a fan of Kano but he looks really cool this time around. All the characters have been interesting so far, they really did a great job with them in this game. I think the variations were a great idea, they bring a lot more to each character than usual.

Kano looks a bit like Cyrax and maybe he stole his cybernetic parts.

I will rock you.

So cannot wait until Sonya is revealed
