The closest thing Shao Kahn truly has to a child is Mileena...who should be the legal heir to Shao Kahn's throne.I really cannot wait for this game to answer these stupid questions. If I'm being honest that German Gamepro issue had to have messed up in translation, or they're just accidentally spewing shit out that isn't true. To be fair, it happens frequently. The fact that we had Boon's tweet and that he calls himself "The Kahn" has to be signs that he is not related to Shao. Him calling himself "The Kahn" when that's his last name would be goofy as all hell. Maybe "successor to Shao" and "sun God" got crossed in translation.. Yeah, I'm reachin'. I'm just really pullin' for this dude not to be a descendant. It just wouldn't make sense. If Kahn had a child, especially a SON, do you not think he would flaunt that little bastard around? Hell, he did that for Mileena.

Then again, the Outworld throne is not exactly known to change hands under peaceful circumstances.

I hope Kotal Kahn CRUSHES Mileena, offer her as sacrifice, I don't know. I really dislike that spammer teleporter (gameplay reasons, she's a remarkable character for story plot).
About Kotal Kahn, he seems to be taking over, not receiving the throne. Maybe what the translation meant to say that he will be proven to be Shao Kahn's son was Shao Kahn's successor.
If he is his son, I must watch and play the game to be convinced. I prefer him to be not related to The Konqueror now that seems the "Kahn" word is a title.
Fully agreed. It adds a layer of mystique if he just kinda shows up and takes shit over. ALSO I think the new Forest stage will have something to do with Kotal Kahn. Looks like it's aztec inspired! Took this screen from the uncompressed video
I really think Kotal Kahn IS Huitzilopochtli. So he is "younger" than Shao Kahn. If he is truly the Sun God who the Aztecs offered sacrifices, this would be a very nice connection!
I've also heard some people make the connection between Kotal Kahn and Kukulkan. Sounds similar.
So with having 'Kahn' in his name, is there a relation between Kotal Kahn and Shao Kahn or is ‘Kahn’ actually just a title befitting of emperors?
Boon: No. It's just a title.
You mean not related at all officially?http://www.thekombattether.com/gamescom/ed-boon-interview.html
There we have it folks. The two are related at all officially.
