Johnny Cage kicks and flips his way into Mortal Kombat 11

Guard your testicles, fighting game fans! Everyone’s favorite Hollywood pretty boy Johnny Cage is returning for Mortal Kombat 11.

IGN has the timed exclusive on this reveal as seen in the trailer below. Johnny Cage joins a growing roster of fan favorites in style. Award statue Fatal Blows? Stunt double crotch shots? The greatest Fatality we’ve seen yet? Yeah, this trailer has got it all.

Johnny brings his action flick style moves in full doses here. The classics return such as the shadow kick, green fireballs, and dragon punch. One of the more interesting new moves, however, includes a counter stance from a “mime in the box” stance. Seems like Cage took some pointers from the set of his film Ninja Mime.

We also see Johnny Cage power up his fists, break out a camera in stunning fashion, and even call his own stunt double to help with the classic nut punch. The squishing sound you hear really sells it. The Fatal Blow has him lay the smackdown before showing off his “Excellence Award – Best Actor” award. Chances are he’ll have enough of these to crack skulls with.

However, the Fatality really steals the show with Johnny rearing up for his patented uppercut. What follows is silly, gross, and classic Cage.
