Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Jax confirmed for Mortal Kombat 11

Skar tissue.

NetherRealm has confirmed Lui Kang, Kung Lao and Jax for Mortal Kombat 11.

All three characters can be seen in the story trailer, below.

The video shows how past and present characters from the series meet up and sometimes fight each other. We see past and present Jax go at it, for example - in front of their daughter Jacqui. Awkward!

There are loads of nice little details in the video. Lui Kang's famous OG Fatality, which saw him call in a dragon to bite his opponent in half, makes an appearance in fiery form.

Present (and evil) Lui Kang is super pissed at past Raiden.

And when past Johnny Cage is cut in the face, a scar appears on present Johnny Cage. I expect plenty of time travel shenanigans in the story mode.

Also of note, NetherRealm appears to have changed the colour of Geras' blood from blue to red.

Oh, and there's a glimpse at Kitana, although she's yet to be confirmed as playable.

Here are the characters confirmed playable so far: Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D'Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Liu Kang, Kung Lao and Jax Briggs. Expect more ahead of Mortal Kombat 11's 23rd April release date.
