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
Agreed. This post was made prior to them showing the full stage. But yeh. D'Vorah seems more likely. Or reptile (the statue with the dragon around the neck)
The leak may or may not be true, but Ed Boon himself said on Twitter that Kotal and Shao have no relation.
How much clearer than from the very creator of MK and Creative Director at NRS do people need???
'Kahn' translates to "great warrior". I think it's of either Chinese or Sanskrit derivation... I forget (Google isn't throwing anything conclusive up in the first couple of searches). I read this (IN A BOOK) somewhere years ago. Think: Genghis Kahn et al.Perhaps "Kahn" is like a title or something?
