Johnny Cage has made a massive entry into Mortal Kombat 11, kicking, punching and even throwing his sunglasses at his opponents. Not to mention a fatality that will certainly be remembered.
Johnny Cage is one of the original first seven Mortal Kombat fighters and appeared in the first release of the Mortal Kombat series in 1992. Cage's character is narcissistic Hollywood movie star who has been mostly viewed by the audience as the character that applies some level of comic relief. What we see in today fighter reveal trailer released through the IGN YouTube Channel is exactly that. Cages large variety of moves are quite funny, such as taking photos of his opponent and even throwing his sunglasses at them. Not to mention the brutal combinations of punches and kicks.
Most note worthy though is definitely Cage's 'fatality', the actor takes the opponent to the set of movie theatre where a movie shot is being taken for a 'brutal uppercut'. We see the movie clapperboard with 'take 02' on it, as well as in the director category Mortal Kombat 11's director 'Ed Boon'. Cage attempts to hit the perfect uppercut on his opponent, eventually taking his/hers head off, he then proceeds to throw it at the camera. I would say this has been the most creative fatality we have seen from Mortal Kombat 11 so far.
What also adds to the awesomeness of this fatality is the origin of fatalities themselves. If you didn't know, Cage was the first character to receive the coding or the option of a 'fatality', as at the time of development he was the only character made for 'Mortal Kombat.' The fatality Cage does in the first Mortal Kombat is a brutal uppercut that takes the head off his opponent, so I would assume Ed Boon and NetherRealm Studios are giving a 'wink' back to the very first fatality ever made with this new one for Mortal Kombat 11.
In other news about Mortal Kombat 11, Johnny Cage isn't the only fighter that has been revealed through a trailer, check out Kabal and Jade. Unfortunately NetherRealm Studios said that Scooby-Doo's Shaggy didn't make the cut, more on that here.
