The complete roster of Mortal Kombat X characters is still a mystery - but when the game ships in 2015, we know each fighter will have plenty to say to his or her opponents! Unique pre-match dialogues have been of intense interest during convention previews, but typically muffled by the roar of the crowds. Following up on other examples; NetherRealm Studios used Instagram to offer a complete demo of character interaction between Cassie Cage & Kotal Kahn. Watch (and listen) below:

Cassie Cage: Nice mini-skirt.
Kotal Kahn: A joke at my expense?
Cassie Cage: Nah. It's yours for free.

Second generation kombatant Cassie Cage delivers mocking levity with a nonchalance befitting of the daughter of both Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade. As you might expect, incoming Outworld conqueror Kotal Kahn plays a natural straight man in the one-two exchange.

Clues to story-driven details have drawn particular interest where character interactions have been concerned. This one doesn't give too much away, particularly given presumptions about both character's expected demeanours. Cassie is a little less exaggerated in her comedic delivery than her father - an interesting subtlety.

Will this muted characterization define Cassie Cage throughout? Is Kotal Kahn's mini-skirt truly up to the demands of the fickle winds of fashion? Register to share your thoughts on the Mortal Kombat X forum! Enjoy klassic video content by subscribing to Mortal Kombat Online on YouTube!
