Ed Boon Teases Johnny Cage’s Return in Mortal Kombat X

by AOTF Staff

Mortal Kombat X’s next reveal could very well be Johnny Cage, if we’ve properly deciphered Ed Boon’s latest tweet. Boon took to Twitter to tease everyone with a picture of a t-shirt sporting the move input “back, forward + low kick”. He followed this picture with the question, “Which MK character does this belong to?”

Which MK character does this belong to?

The signs all clearly point to Johnny Cage. The strongest piece of evidence is that the aforementioned input is exclusive to this classic combatant in the original Mortal Kombat title. If you’re wondering, it executes Cage’s Shadow Kick. Reptile uses this move command for his Reverse Elbow maneuver in a later installment, but we can cross him off our list since he has already been announced.

So it may be safe to assume that we’ll be seeing Johnny Cage receive an announcement shortly and officially join his daughter, Cassie Cage, in the no-holds-barred tournament. Let’s hope Sonya Blade is up next to complete this brutal family outing.

Either way, more classic characters should be on the way if recent hints are to be believed. Mortal Kombat X will be released on April 14th for PS3, PS4, Xbox 360, Xbox One, and PC.
