Johnny Cage Shows Why He's So Awesome In This New Mortal Kombat Video

Fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise all know that when it comes to being totally cocky and too egotistical that no one trumps Johnny Cage.  The man that’s supposed to be a riff on the Hollywood action stars that we love has been a fan-favorite character since he first appeared in MK1, way back in 1992.  Since debuting as a somewhat obvious parody on Jean-Claude Van Damme, Johnny Cage has since blossomed to become a character whose one-liners and attitude is completely unrivaled by anything we’ve seen before, whether it’s a real person or a completely fictitious one.

This latest Mortal Kombat trailer, or should I say trailer for the man & legend that is Johnny Cage, shows our favorite action star turned hero and how his ego is now roughly the size of small moon.  Johnny has always been portrayed as a smart-ass who lives in a different galaxy compared to everyone else.  Besides showing us how egotistical Johnny has gotten and how he will do anything necessarily to win (including punching a man repeatedly in the groin area), this new trailer shows us a good chunk of the cutscenes for Johnny’s section in the story mode.  Just like MK vs. DC Universe, the new MK game will have its story mode split up in chapters focusing on different characters ranging from like Liu Kang, Jax, Scorpion and even Jade.

If what we’ve seen today is any indication of what we can expect from Johnny’s story mode chapter and the rest of the game, then I think we’re going to be in store for a mode that perfectly encapsulates what the MK fans out there want.

The latest chapter of Mortal Kombat will be available on the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 on April 19th.
