The latest addition to the Mortal Kombat line-up of "kombatants" is an old favourite. Jax, the cybernetically armed special forces operative, who always has brain matter under his fingernails, will return.
Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon confirmed the inclusion of Jax in last night's episode of GameTrailers TV, calling him "bigger, more bad-ass then ever" and armed with "an insane fatality". The fighter first appeared in Mortal Kombat II. First footage of Jax in action shows off familiar moves, a stage set in a subway that has an environment fatality that must be seen to fully appreciate.
