NetherRealm Studios has released a new trailer for Mortal Kombat X which reveals that the evil sorcerer Quan Chi will be rejoining the fight. The latest iteration of the long-running brawler is set to release 0n April 14, 2015, on current and past-gen consoles.
Squaring off against the equally nefarious Kano, the trailer showcases the three distinct styles Quan Chi can wield. The warlock style allows the sorcerer to create portals that can lead to lengthy combos, while the sorcerer play style allows him to cast spells in order to improve attributes such as damage dealt and defense. Perhaps most interesting, however, is the summoner style, which allows Quan Chi to summon demons from the NetherRealm in order to assist him.
Originally making his debut in the Mortal Kombat: Defenders of the Realm television show, Quan Chi has played an important role in the series since his debut. While he was featured in the 2011 reboot of the franchise, his role will be greatly expanded in Mortal Kombat X. While this trailer doesn’t reveal exactly what he is up to, we do know that he will probably be working closely with disgraced Elder God Shinnok.
We will continue to have coverage of Mortal Kombat X in the lead-up to its 2015 release, so stay tuned.
