Kano is seriously underrated

His 50/50 game is strong - Amazing low sweep reach B4, amazing poke recovery D1... condition the opponent to expect these and throw out a F4,3 to fuck em up! When they get used to that, poke and throw. B3 is fast as fuck and a great way to get an easy KB *can also confirm into this from a connecting jump kick).

His air cannonball is great especially after a jump kick. If ever blocked simply amplify it for an overhead!

Thoughts? If anyone wants to see a high level Kano - Hit me up on PS for some matches :)

I seriously love Kano so much in this game. He’s my second main after Kitana, and I have embarrassed some really high skilled players with my Kano. I especially love to use Kano against Scorpion scrubs.

Too bad you’re on the PS. I play on the XB1.

I have nothing to contribute when it comes to discussing his gameplay in MK11 because I don't own the game. But I will chime in and say I feel he really gets the short end of the stick too often from both fans and the MK team.

He's often looked at as a sloppy cowardly buffoon who is easily brushed aside, when originally he was a cut throat dangerous resourceful leader of a large crime gang. I would love to see them give this character some respect again some day and show him to be this vicious man who was to be feared and led one of the most dangerous crime gangs in the world. The guy who gave the special forces such trouble and caused Sonya Blade such anguish.

Kano's gameplay is awesome. Just finished his Stage 5 towers.

Am I the only one who thinks he's the best looking male character? The facial features in "in his 50's" skins look so realistic and even kinda handsome. Having some chest hair makes Kano even more realistic and distinct from all the other smooth guys. Makes me wonder - does young Kano shave his body and if so, how does it fit his profile?

BTW, how can one unlock his Brutal Blade (b,f,1) brutality? His character towers unlock 2 different brutalities, but not the one I'm most interested in.

I tried out Kano last night and was really surprised at how good he is. I only labbed for like 30 minutes then went online and won my first set without really even knowing what I was doing. He's just a lot of fun to play; not sure why he gets dogged so much. I can't wait to explore this character more. I'm on XB1 if anyone wants to link up

He is a hot bear in MK11 - His aesthetic qualities are what drew me to him as I never really liked him in any other MK incarnation! Turns out, he's actually badass :D

I got this brutality. you get it if you success a normal tower island on the right side. You need a little luck to catch the right tower.

Well, Kano is my main. Even if I think his fatalities could be better I felt in love with his gameplay. He has some great combos and strings, he looks great and has a perfect classic MK3 fatality as a brutality. I just wish tehy gave him also his MK3 laser eye fatality, because i was a little bit disappointed that he uses his eye beam only in two specials but not in combos... :(. Damn, his look reminds me of Euron Greyjoy which is also a badass. So... perfect choice for me.

Yep, so I'm not the only one who noticed the similarities.

TBH, Kano is not my main, not even in my TOP3, but so far he is easily TOP5 material.

Thank you. These towers are really repetitive and unrewarding (except for the cash). Probably because I play the game the same hours every day. NRS should randomize them a bit more. I can't play the game during work hours.

As much as I love his MK3 appearance, I do find it a bit jarring in this game because MK3 Kano in MK11 looks like a completely different person. His facial features ect. I get why but they should have tried to make the two incarnations more cohesive because one looks like Trevor Goddard and the other looks like Rich Divizio.

I'm not complaining I like both incarnations of Kano, I'm just sayin.

I'm having a lot of fun with him in this game. His mixups are aweome. A lot of variety with his moveset. Not a lot of people play with him so most of the time an oppent doesn't know where your coming form
