As promised, the newest <a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/show/gametrailers-tv">GameTrailers TV</a> episode is on right now. From the intro segment it appears that <b>Spike TV</b> is set to unveil Kabal as the newest <a href="http://www.trmk.org/games/mortal_kombat_9/">Mortal Kombat (2011)</a> Character.

The entire episode is up on <a href="http://www.gametrailers.com/show/gametrailers-tv">GameTrailers TV</a>. For now you'll need to skip to the fourth chapter to see the <b>Kabal</b> reveal.

Here is a direct screenshot taken from a TiVo rip of mine to show Kabal's new character detail. As you can see his skin is now showing the most damage we've seen yet in his various incarnations. Other parts of his outfit have also got visual upgrades that I think look great. He's identifiable yet not an exact copy of previous incarnations.

Also here's a quick recap of what was shown during the clip:

<li>Kabal's got similar moves as before</li>
<li>Kabal's got a devistating X-Ray move where he uses the hooks</li>
<li>Re-imagined Soul Chamber stage shown for the first time</li>
<li>Kabal's air splice Fatality was also shown</li>

Also during Kabal's Fatality is a stage we can't identify. It seems to be filled with dead bodies on the ground, but the background can't be seen because of the Fatality darkness.

Any ideas what stage that maybe be? Could this be the first look at <b>Shang Tsung's Flesh Pits</b>?
