The only confirmed characters playable characters to appear in MK11 are Raiden, Scorpion, Baraka, Geras (a new male character), Skarlet (from MK9), Sonya Blade, Sub-Zero, Kronika (a new female character) and Shao Kahn (pre-order bonus). Scorpion and Raiden were confirmed in the announcement trailer, while Baraka, Geras, Skarlet, Sonya, Sub-Zero and Kronika were confirmed playable at the reveal event in January. At that same event, Kitana, Kano and Cassie Cage were shown off in menus of the game, making them virtually confirmed as playable, although we haven't seen them in action just yet. Meanwhile, Kung Lao, Liu Kang and Shinnok were shown in the story mode, but not confirmed to be playable just yet (although at least Liu Kang and Kung Lao are expected to be playable). Finally, glimpses of Johnny Cage were shown multiple times in a behind the scenes video, confirming he is playable.

We can now officially confirm that Kano (not his son) is part of the MK11 roster. He was revealed in late January via an official Brazilian stream showcasing artwork of the legacy character. With a new Kombat Kast rescheduled for Tuesday, February 5, there's a chance we'll see Kano in action alongside the full reveal of Kabal.

D'Vorah was confirmed on Inside Xbox in early February, but no gameplay has been shown of her yet. In addition, another female character will be announced during the second Kombat Kast on February 14. Since it's Valentine's Day, start guessing as to which female character this will be.

Shao Kahn is a pre-order bonus, so make sure you pre-order the game if you want him on day one without having to pay extra. Pre-ordering will also give you access to the beta that begins in March. Like many previous Mortal Kombat and Injustice pre-order bonus characters, it’s extremely likely Shao Kahn will be available to purchase as DLC after launch.

One big mystery about Mortal Kombat 11 is how these characters will feature in the game. During the cinematic announcement trailer, two different versions of Scorpion were present. The modern, Mortal Kombat X version of Scorpion faced off against Dark Raiden first. Once Raiden defeated him, the classic version of Scorpion from Ultimate MK3 stepped up to take down the Thunder God.

Some speculate that this will be an “ultimate” version of Mortal Kombat, with multiple versions of each character. This would be a natural progression from the three play style feature each character had in Mortal Kombat X, but at the January 17 community reveal event, it was confirmed that the variations return, alongside custom variations. That means that we'll have to wait a bit longer to see if the classic (time shifting) versions of these characters appear in story mode.

Stay tuned to this article as we continue to update it with any new character announcements, including anything that gets announced during the community reveal event. Mortal Kombat 11 releases on April 23, 2019 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One and PC.
