Kotal Kahn's Mortal Kombat 11 reveal trailer was hijacked by Jacqui Briggs who promptly beat up the corpulent fighter, showed her own fatal blow and a fatality. Meanwhile, all that Kotal Kahn showed some of his basic moves and kombos.

NetherRealm Studios seem to have misspelt Jacqui Briggs Reveal Trailer as Kotal Kahn Reveal Trailer. She showed her fancy moves, kombos, fatal blow and performed a fatality on the poor shapeshifter who only managed to show a handful of his own moves.

Kotal Kahn does seem to rely on the giant sword he wields on his back for the more brutal moves, on top of shapeshifting into a jaguar to nom his opponents and burning them with sunlight. On other occasions, he apparently enjoys getting beaten down by Jacqui Briggs in his own trailer, which might suggest a level of masochism, given that he was the only character in Mortal Kombat X that could perform and lose the match.

Meanwhile, Jacqui comes back with her empowered suit once again, with distinct Muay Thai moves and stance, all of which she uses to ruin Kotal's day. She is shown repeatedly using the basic Muay Thai body kick as well as using the more brutal knee and elbow moves, which seem to be tied to her grab.

Jacqui's suit allows her to deploy an energetic projectile, move, jump and hit at abnormal speeds. It is not her only gadget as she has a wrist-mounted gun along with some grenades that deploy an energy field that serves as a wall. She uses the same device to channel her inner and splits Kotal Kahn's lifeless body into pieces.

Mortal Kombat 11 is coming out in about a month, on 23 April 2019, which leaves plenty of time for new gruesome trailers. Fans are now hoping to see a proper reveal of Kotal Kahn with his own fatal blow and fatality, but considering the size of MK11's roster, it is highly likely we will keep getting introduced to other kombatants instead.
