With about 2 weeks until Mortal Kombat X hits your local game shops, we are going to go through the latest news about characters, hints and other surprises from the latest shaolin trailer. Beware of possible spoilers. Here we go.

First off, we see Raiden and some chubby man talking about the shaolin. This man is Bo Rai Cho, who happens to be the man who thought Liu Kang the skills of Mortal Kombat. He was referenced once and was possibly seen in the opening of MK9 where in Raiden's vision, every kombatant (excluding Raiden and Shao Kahn) was dead. Bo Rai Cho would probably be a cameo in story mode or as a playable character.

Then, we see shots of Liu Kang and Kung Lao with glowing orange eyes as if they are zombies. In my theory, either they get turned evil by Quan Chi or something is making them like that, possibly something to do with Shinnok, as Kung Lao stated in the trailer that he sensed that Shinnok and the Netherrealm are up to something evil and sinister. Liu Kang and Kung Lao are said to fight alongside Shinnok.

Which brings us to possible appearances by Nightwolf, Smoke, Stryker and Kabal as stated in reports that have appeared online early this month. All 4 of them are possibly still in Quan Chi's enslavement. In my theory, Quan Chi and Shinnok must be using them in order for them to own Earthrealm and Outworld.

Finally, Liu Kang's fatalities and fighting moves are totally awesome, better than in MK9. I love what he does to Raiden at the end of trailer. He grabs Raiden's neck and pulls his throat out, he then punches him in the mouth while he is holding his throat in his fist and finally, he just tips him on the forehead like nothing had happened and he falls over. In my case and I quote "Say hello to my little friend" and "Good Night"

So what do you guys think of all this? Please leave comments below.
