The next kombatant for Mortal Kombat X has stepped into the arena and it's another familiar face. Hot on the heels of Raiden's debut a few weeks ago, the hardened kriminal Kano is joining the fray once again. Ed Boon has offered another narrated video looking at the MK mainstay and his three fighting techniques.

Kano goes into battle using either his Cybernetic, Cutthroat, and Commando variations. Cutthroat Kano uses his cyber enhancements to up his knife-fighting skills. Cybernetic Kano can use his laser eye for ranged fighting and anti-air techniques. Commando Kano turns Kano into a grappling character that fights almost exclusively at close range, taking advantage of a variety of throws and holds. The demonstration is topped off with Kano's latest Fatality, in which uses his laser eye to give his opponent a new perspective.

The video also takes a look at the new Jungle stage, a lush wilderness filled with ancient ruins and overgrown plants.

Check out Kano's moves in the video below. Mortal Kombat X is koming soon.

Ozzie has been playing video games since picking up his first NES controller at age 5. He has been into games ever since, only briefly stepping away during his college years. But he was pulled back in after spending years in QA circles for both THQ and Activision, mostly spending time helping to push forward the Guitar Hero series at its peak. Ozzie has become a big fan of platformers, puzzle games, shooters, and RPGs, just to name a few genres, but he’s also a huge sucker for anything with a good, compelling narrative behind it. Because what are video games if you can't enjoy a good story with a fresh Cherry Coke?

      Pretty cool. He's got the same cybernetic chest piece as the ever unpopular Hsu Hao who was one of Kano's rivals.

        Jeeze, I forgot all about Hsu Hao. Everything between Deadly Alliance and MK9 is a blur to me.
