Bryan Dawson (Prima Games): It's been stated on many occasions that Mortal Kombat X will feature more new characters than any previous Mortal Kombat video game. At the moment, NetherRealm Studios revealed four of those new characters: Cassie Cage, D'Vorah, Ferra/Torr and Kotal Kahn. With so many new characters, some of the fan favorite classic characters are bound to be cut. The question is, can these new characters replace any fan favorites, and how well do they fit into the general gameplay of the Mortal Kombat series?
With three fighting variants per character, it's difficult to classify the newcomers simply because each fighting style can vary drastically from the others. However, all three variants share a basic set of attacks, and each character still retains a general play style such as zoning or rushdown. Let's take a look at the four newcomers to see where they fit in and who they might replace.
