So, over the weekend, I got my hands on the Mortal Kombat 1 beta. More importantly, we got to play with movie star/fighter Johnny Cage, and outworld officer Li Mei, who hasn't been playable since Armageddon.
Johnny Cage has lost the green glow he usually has, but retains most of his moveset, plus he gains a in fight buff when he talks to the crowd. Li Mei has a lot of different mix ups and special move combinations that keep you zoned and away from her. Look at the non wombo combo video below, including the new fatal blows, and Kameo appearance of Frost.
