While Kotal Kahn's face wasn't shown, there's no denying that the fighter's signature green skin and long sword being dragged across the floor is a giveaway.

Kotal Kahn was shown during the latest story trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. In it, Raiden approaches the fighter to help him take down Shao Kahn. Kronika, who is the main villain of MK 11 , has gone back in time to restore the timeline that Raiden has thrown off balance.

She approaches Shao Kahn to offer him help, but it's up to Raiden, Liu Kang and the rest of the Earthrealm fighters to take his army down. They hope Kotal Kahn can help them.
