By now, you must be wondering which characters would be returning from MK9 who were either killed by Sindel and Shao Kahn, resurrected and enslaved by Quan Chi or accidentally killed in order to stop the antagonist.
Earlier, I found this picture of a character selection menu that looks like it is from [Mortal Kombat](movie:38705) X. It shows Liu Kang, Noob Saibot and Lord Shinnok as playable characters as Ed Boon tweeted on his page, although this leak could be fake. Before I talk about the characters, i would like to apologise to Ed Boon if I had stolen the image from the news report and copied the image to this post.
Lets start with Liu Kang, one of my favourite characters. He is the best friend of Kung lao, friend and ally to all of the good residents of Earthrealm and the love interest of princess Kitana. Throughout MK9, he, along with the other characters have to fight through the tournament in order to defeat Shao Kahn and when Quan Chi resurrected Sindel, she killed most of the Earthrealmers (minus Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade) as well as Kitana. She died while holding his hand. Following this, he wanted to kill Raiden to avenge Kitana's death as well as the good guys that have fallen. However, Raiden accidentally electrocuted him to death, leaving Johnny and Sonya the only surviving Earthrealmers than Raiden. WhenShao Kahn was finally defeated, Raiden tells Johnny and Sonya that they must rebuild Earthrealm and tend to the fallen (which could mean reviving Liu Kang). If Liu Kang does return, I am hoping to see more of him and Kitana as i think they make such a cute couple.
Next up is Noob Saibot. Bi-Han was the original Sub-Zero since the first game was released in 1992. He is killed by Scorpion for killing his family, making Sub Zero and Scorpion rivals to each other. His younger brother Kuai Liang takes on the identity of Sub Zero to avenge his brother's death. Meanwhile, Bi-Han became Noob Saibot. He was last seen trapped by Nightwolf in a magic tornado that exploded alongside him. His final fate is unknown prior to the explosion.
Finally we have Lord Shinnok. Shinnok, I have already mentioned before in my last post. But what I will say is that he could fit as the main antagonist of the game. After all, he hinted that he will soon be free and ready to claim Earthrealm and Outworld to be his to own.
Sonya and Jax have also been rumored to appear in the game after being hinted by Cassie Cage
