The Mortal Kombat franchise has always put a lot of thought and development into the stories of each of the characters, so when announcing brand new characters, you can bet NetherRealm Studios will make a big deal out of it.
Recently, a new trailer was released, and alongside delving into part of the story players will experience in Mortal Kombat X, three new characters were announced for the game.
The new Mortal Kombat game will take 25 years after the last game, developed in 2011, and it will see Mileena take hold of a powerful talisman that grants her 'unimaginable power.'
The three new characters that were seen in the story trailer included Jacqueline Briggs, the daughter of Jax. The second character was Takashi Takeda, who is the son of Blind Kenshi.
Finally, the third character is Kung Jin, a character whom is the descendant of Kung Lao.
In total, 16 different characters have been confirmed for Mortal Kombat X. All 16 characters have been listed below.
Will NetherRealm announce any more characters before the launch of the game? It is possible, but this could also be the full character roster for Mortal Kombat X. Hopefully we will see another character reveal or two before the game is released next month for Xbox One, PS4, Xbox 360, PS3 and PC, on April 14th.
