KUNG LAO WINS! Oh, my apologies; I was absorbed in a flashback from my MK II days, a time when combos in the series consisted of spamming high-punch until your foe foolishly stumbled into its inescapable flurry. Today, however, Warner Bros. Interactive has released a trailer with highlights of Kitana and Kung Lao's fighting prowesses that are far more impressive and complex than continuous jabs to the forehead.
The trailer begins with Raiden materialising from a blast of lightning teleportation and asking the most important question any potential eavesdropper of Outworld could potentially overhear: "Where have you been, Kung Lao?!" Then Kitana responds to a taunt by brandishing her fan blades and getting into her pre-fight "Really?!" stance.

|"I mean, REALLY?!"|
She runs up Kano's torso as though his crotch and chest are components to a makeshift stair master, soars into the air over his head, and lands behind him, embedding her blades in his kisser.
|"This is a typical Monday morning for me, baybeeee."|
Presumably familiar with Kano's penchant for placing his hands on and between valuables that have no chance of ever belonging to him, Kitana relieves him of his most precious tools.
|"I can still hug with no hands, baybeeee."|
And of course, it wouldn't be a true Kitana/ Kung Lao trailer without Quan Chi screaming in unquestionable delight as his face is slowly forced into the supernatural buzz-saw that is Kung Lao's hat.
|"I LOVE A CLOSE SHAVE! AAAAAOOOOO!"|
You can check out the full trailer for yourself below. Just be sure to wear a rain coat; blood may spray from your screen and on to your brand new turtle neck.
