Shao Kahn isn't the only big bad terrorizing the realms of Mortal Kombat. NetherRealm Studios has announced that Quan Chi will be part of the playable cast in Mortal Kombat X, due April 2015. You might remember this stark-white, Kratos-looking sorceror from such games as Mortal Kombat 4 and Mortal Kombat Mythologies: Sub-Zero, but he actually originated with the Defenders of the Realm animated series.
Being a master of the dark arts, Quan Chi's three movesets show off his necromancy powers in full effect. There's Warlock, which opens up portals for extra avenues of attack, Summoner, where Quan Chi calls a freakin' Netherrealm Bat to fight as his side, and Sorcerer, which allows space control through buff/debuff fields. By this point, it goes without saying, but Quan Chi's X-Ray and Fatality moves are absolutely brutal. You can watch them with all their gory details in the reveal trailer below, then read on to find out who else is in the Mortal Kombat X roster.
