Kotal Kahn... a relative of Shao Kahn? The Konqueror himself?

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 was thinking that it could be related more to Ferra, given the Pygmy statue in that level, but who knows?

Ferra may be related to Kotal Kahn, she looks aztec.

Now, this stage is curious.

The jungle is TOTALLY MESOAMERICAN. The architecture also resembles the stone art of maya/aztecs.

But now explain me that chinese dragon :laugh:

Chinese dragon could just be a nod to MK itself, or it could be something else.

So many questions, which I can't wait to see the answers for in Story Mode.

Perhaps "Kahn" is like a title or something?
'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.
