Johnny Cage Uppercuts His Way into Mortal Kombat 11

Recommended Videos

Everyone’s favorite nut punching, orb uppercutting, speed kicking guy is back. Johnny Cage is now officially confirmed for Mortal Kombat 11, and along with his good looks comes his trademark fighting style complete with some unique abilities. This includes his Fatality, which might just be one of the greatest, and funniest, we’ve ever seen.

Johnny’s classic moves, such as the green fireballs and the shadow kick make their return, as do his fighting variants from Mortal Kombat X. While we’re glad to see that Johnny hasn’t changed too much, he did gain a few new Hollywood-like abilities. For instance, he can now throw his sunglasses at his opponent, as well as blinding them with some flash photography. He also gains a brand new counter move where he pretends to be a mimic trapped inside a box, and his Fatal Blow shows him attacking his opponent with what appears to be an Oscar Award for best actor.

However, his new Fatality is what has everyone talking. Johnny uppercuts his opponents jaw clean off when a Director off screen yells out to redo the shoot, turning it into a blooper reel for an action scene. Johnny then proceeds to uppercut them two more times until his opponents head is pulled off and thrown into the camera. The exclamation point is where Johnny brings out an action figure of himself at the end. What a way to reintroduce one of your fighters Nether Realm.

Mortal Kombat 11 launches on April 23 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, and PC. You can check out Johnny Cage’s gameplay reveal here.
