Mortal Kombat fans hoping to see a few more old faces when the gruesome fighting series’ eleventh instalment launches later this year are in luck: developer NetherRealm has revealed that masked swordsman Kabal and the insectoid D’Vorah are making a return.
Kabal, a former member the Black Dragon crime syndicate, first debuted in Mortal Kombat 3 back in 1995, and was originally intended to be one of the good guys. However, various story shenanigans since then have seen Kabal defeated and resurrected on the side of evil, which is where we find him in Mortal Kombat 11.
Kabal’s latest appearance (his first as a playable character since Mortal Kombat in 2011) sees the return of his iconic hookswords and respiratory mask, but introduces an enhanced move set. His new face-meet-floor Fatality, which debuts in the trailer below, really is quite something.
