Mortal Kombat X is at this year's Game Developers Conference, demonstrating the 2015 sequel and its revolutionary new Character Variation system, and recently previewed Story Mode.

In an interview with Game Crate, Senior Producer Adam Urbano dropped a massive spoiler, confirming the playable inclusion of hotly speculated Mortal Kombat (2011) return: Johnny Cage!

In the video -- since removed for unknown reasons -- Urbano describes Cage's brutality as one of his favourites.

The classic Mortal Kombat Trilogy era finisher was first teased in the Mortal Kombat X: Next trailer. NetherRealm Studios walked through the new kombo type during their Live Kombat Kast.

Returning fighter Kenshi was also confirmed for the console & PC versions, having already been revealed for MKX Mobile on the IGN App. IGN also picked up the Game Crate story.
