Back in 2006 as Mortal Kombat: Armageddon was in development, the franchise characters of Sub-Zero and Scorpion were given their very own My space accounts. Though not been used to release material in quite some time, today Midway has used these accounts to reveal to us the render of the fifth confirmed Mortal Kombat character in the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, Liu Kang!

The long-time champion of Mortal Kombat appears in a brand new stage, the Wu Shi Academy that first appeared in Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance and was the place of his death at the hands of the sorcerers Shang Tsung and Quan Chi. Liu Kang sports most of his trademark attire as well as a large MK dragon buckle on his waist.

We will keep an eye out for the high res version of this render and add it to this lead once it is revealed.

Thanks to forum members and for the leads on this story.

EDIT: Midway has posted the high res version on the official website.
