I wish people shut up about Jax, forreal, how long are they going to keep complaining? Most of them hated the game anyway, just shut up.

I actually like this look for Kano. I just hate that he's in the game over vastly better and more important characters.

With Kano being my favorite character, I was so looking for to the render. But I can't help being a tad disappointed with the look.

What bugs me the most is that bright flashing light on his chest. It seems like it would be distracting in game, it takes away the focus from his iconic eye, and it is reminds me too much of Hsu Hao (not a very popular character) I know he has had this light before, but it seems a little brighter this time.

Secondly the detail engravings on the faceplate have far more detail than I would like. It looks far too bionic now compared to the silver skull-like look some of the previous versions looked like.

I’m also not a big fan of the more bionic eye look. I loved how ambiguous the eye was in the previous games being just a red flash. It was unclear if he was able to see from it, so the eye might just made to intimidate the opponent. To me, the whole bionic look makes Kano more into technology, keeping him away from his ruthless thug. I had always assumed he lost half his face for some reason and to stop the bleeding he welded hot steal to his face, more old fashion way suits Kano.

Also (and I hate that I'm complaining), the bread is a little much as it just because of the way it just connects to his normal hair. Trimming the beard just a tad would have made me happier.

With my complaints aside, I as so happy Kano is actually in the game. The best thing I like about his look is how simple the costume is aside from the flashing lights. His vest gives him a somewhat military look, with the sleeves cut to show off his massive arms. The coolest thing about the image is the cloth wrapped around his knuckles and how small the knives are. To me, shorter knives are more realistic and a bit scarier than the massive ones he had in the previous games.

... You can that a knife? This is a knife!

A nice render, he looks cool. His face has improved this time around IMO.

He looks okay, his pose is rather generic and unexciting.

The sad thing is Kano had/has potential to be a real badass of a character, but in all the games he's been the same brutish thug charcter. They really need to refresh his character; say, make him like Lobo...

Kano should grow a mullet, buy some leather, start riding a bike, and be a parody of everything MK once stood for that's completely lost on the fanbase that flocks to the unwavering levels of stupid with no irony?

... Wouldn't that be a minor difference to other MK characters? grin

Its a good render and that's about it. Nothing wow! Or that impressive.


Overall I have to agree somewhat. I'm not really taken with the idea of Kano in the game, so that might sway my opinion of his render. I don't think it's a great one, but it's not the worst one either.

On a side note I'm wondering why they chose to include his daggers, but omitted Kitana's fans from her render.


I think that's quite an intelligent move from the MK team (by not giving everyone their weapon in their render) because that would wear thin rather quick. Most of the characters have a unique/different pose in their renders... such as Tsung's souls, Flash's speed, Catwoman's stance, Deathstroke's gun and sword, Raiden's thunder, etc... Kitana's fan is VERY signature, but lets face it... not every character needs to sport their weapon in the render. It's best to come up with sometime a bit more fresh for most of them. Kitana happens to sport some kind of fighting stance which is just fine.

I don't mind it. I do however prefer bald Kano, but fuck it. This is still chill. I will be interested in seeing how he fights and what the cannonball looks like next gen.

Dam that render is cool and nice
There are alot of complains in this thread about kano especially for fans who hate kano.
The same thing happened to jax,kitana and to other unlike characters.
I mean I don't I understand how can you judge kano's render before seeing
him in gameplay.
some say what a waste spot,some say crap character..........so on.
I very glad that he came back, and I am very glad that the others didn't have the chance to make it.
what ever you say about kano he is still going to come, so get over it.
Bring back kano in the game means this proofs that he is very iconic character, and he is especially more icoinic than reptile, kunglao, and mileena.

Something about him looks really flat. It's not the best render IMO. He looks ok though, but nothing impressive... just meh.

The eyeplate looks a bit too much like the Terminator's,but you have to remember that's what it started off as.

FUCK YEAH BEARD. Beards are manly.

Little touches like leather straps on his forearm protectors and the bandages around his knuckles look great.

The dragon tattoo.

I like it.

Doesn't matter how it started out. The face plate Kano had from MK1-3 was perfect. Simple face plate with a fake eye. Nothing fancy. Now everytime I'll look at him, I'll wonder if John Connor is going to turn up as a playable character.

I really hate the Terminator faceplate revamp.
