Five new Mortal Kombat 11 mini-bios have been added to the official website, leaving just eight characters unaccounted for on the present menu of twenty-nine options. This includes an official English translation for the Jax blurb mistakenly posted in German, last month. Read on:
Bios for Shaolin Monks Kung Lao and Liu Kang place emphasis on their living selves, despite Kung Lao being pictured in his revenant design. Kung Lao is also credited with the defeat of a "deadly alliance" between Shang Tsung and Quan Chi from the reboot -- loaded terminology for fans of the original timeline. Kotal Kahn will apparently wrestle with the noble difficulties of leading Outworld's denizens toward a better future, while Noob Saibot is free to pursue his own goals upon the death of Quan Chi.
Kung Lao (Respect)
Shaolin monk and descendant of Great Kung Lao. The younger Kung Lao claimed his greatness by beating the deadly alliance of Shang Tsung and Quan Chi in Mortal Kombat. Reckless and rebellious, but courageous and indomitable, Kung Lao fights to prove worthy of his glorious ancestors.
Jax Briggs (Duty)
Cyber-enhanced officer of the Special Forces. Jax Briggs lost both arms in the line of duty, but he came back to the battlefield twice as strong thanks to cybernetic upgrades. Even with that power, Jax’s sacrifices burden him. He soldiers onward, honorbound to protect Earthrealm.
Kotal Kahn (Order)
Osh-Tekk warrior and Emperor of Outworld. Years ago, Kotal saved the Empire from chaos and claimed the throne of Kahn. Now his reign is plagued by rising tensions at home and abroad. Determined to keep order, Kotal wrestles with the temptation to exercise the same brutal tactics as his predecessors.
Noob Saibot (Recognition)
Shadow of the Netherrealm. In life, Noob Saibot was known as Sub-Zero. Unjustly murdered by Scorpion, he was resurrected by Quan Chi and granted power over darkness, but as Quan Chi’s slave. Now, Quan Chi is dead. Noob Saibot is finally free to reclaim the honor that was stolen from him.
Liu Kang (Responsibility)
Shaolin monk and Champion of Earthrealm. Liu Kang was an orphan adopted and trained in the arts of kombat by the Shaolin order. He honored them by defeating Shang Tsung in Mortal Kombat and saving Earthrealm as "the Chosen One," a title that weighs heavy on his shoulders.
