Mortal Kombat 1 Unveils Jean-Claude Van Damme As Johnny Cage In Brutal New Trailer

NetherRealm Studios has unleashed a punchy new trailer for Mortal Kombat 1, this time showcasing legendary action star Jean-Claude Van Damme as Johnny Cage.

Van Damme’s likeness and voice are used as a skin for Cage, so expect him to rock all the iconic moves you’ve come to expect from the classic Mortal Kombat character. Long-time fans probably won’t be surprised to see Van Damme appear, as Johnny Cage’s design was actually inspired by the action star and martial artist, notably Van Damme’s appearance in the film Bloodsport. In fact, Cage’s infamous nut punch was taken straight from Van Damme’s character from that movie.

Mortal Kombat 1 is scheduled for release on September 19, 2023 for PS5, PC, and Xbox Series X/S. The game takes place in a brand new reality created by Fire God Liu Kang, and introduces new stories and backgrounds for classic characters (for example, Scorpion and Sub-Zero are now brothers). One of the biggest additions is Kameo Fighters, who join the fight to deal extra damage from the side of the screen before retreating.
