Mortal Kombat 11: Kabal confirmed
With the release for Mortal Kombat 11 a little over 2 months away we are going to see various announcements over the coming weeks, especially news concerning the roster of fighters we are due to have upon release.
Recently an old favourite has been confirmed to make his return, Kabal. Making his first appearance in the series in its third instalment MK3 as a former member of the Black Dragon faction created by Kano, effectively putting Kabal on the side of good, while he may not have been a playable character in his debut he did play an important role in the story of Mortal Kombat 3. The loyalty of this character has swung between good and evil as his appearances have racked up, Kabal has appeared in the following games:
Mortal Kombat 3
Ultimate Mortal Kombat
Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3
MK Shaolin Monks
Mortal Kombat 2011
Kabal did appear very briefly in Mortal Kombat as an NPC in the story.
His weapons of choice are hook swords, Kabal is widely regarded as being one of the most powerful characters you can play as whenever he makes a playable appearance, a huge fan favourite for sure, it’s just a shame his previous fatalities left a little to be desired. Perhaps a little known fact about this character is that he was originally to be named the Sandman with buzzsaw blades upon his wrists, fortunately that idea was scrapped and we were given the highly popular Kabal instead, having said that I do think the character of Sandman could have been unique and interesting character for the franchise.
Over all I have to say I can’t wait to see a newly revived Kabal make his awaited return to the series, his move set is always fun to use and it even looks like he may have a more interesting fatality his time around.
