Kano possibly spoiled as playable fighter in Mortal Kombat X

Any plans Ed Boon might've had to reveal Kano has a playable character in Mortal Kombat X at Gamescom have been spoiled thanks to screengrabs from a German magazine.

The images, which first popped up on Twitter, have yet to be confirmed, but it's looking like Kano will be one of the fighters in the upcoming game. The images also suggest that one of Kano's three versions will use wrestling moves and feature a Flying Knee special attack.

Series creator Ed Boon hasn't responded to rumor, but it's possible he could tease something ahead of Gamescom. He did something similar prior to the recent fighting game tournament EVO 2014 where the studio revealed Raiden and his three different fight styles. Other fighters confirmed for Mortal Kombat X include Scorpion, as well as new fighters Cassie Cage, D'Vorah, Ferra & Torr and Kotal Kahn.
