    We have a new, in-game look at Shao Kahn for his upcoming release in Mortal Kombat 11. It looks like that fancy Samurai looking gear might be part of his new outfit, with the Emperor of Outworld looking to mix things up for his first playable debut in the modern MK era.


    And he looks absolutely awesome, imo!

    A Raiden render was subsequently released to go with the Shao Kahn render

      People saying they prefer "classic, non-flashy" Shao.... Um, really?

      Though I do indeed like this new look, Shao Kahn was a hot daddy in his original attire as well.

      ya really. If you don't see the difference between that and the render I don't know what to tell you. One guy is a dungeons and dragons barbarian man, and the other guy just stepped out of the bling factory.

      Don't worry, I'm sure with the gear customisation you'll be able to make your chrome-clad, homoerotic kahn.

      Leather Daddy!!!1! That chest cut out, eat your heart out power girl.

      but also, the dragon aspects are too prominent to ignore (arm spikes, claws, talons, skin colour mottling)
      Is it too much of a stretch to say Onaga influence?

      They could have pulled a Mileena and gave him scaly skin as a retcon.

      He has always been some type of half dragon thing, his head/face was the only thing that showed it though but you could never really see, except for in outside game stuff like comics and officially licensed figures.

      This is the first time any of it has showed up on his body, which I assume is to make him more visually distinct and clearly non-human.

      This is true, but it’s still a lot of effort to put in for a pre-order character, whereas Goro and Darkseid pretty much looked how you would expect them to look.

      Speaking with @TheGabStandard earlier, he brought up an interesting theory. With all the implications of timeline meddling so far, perhaps this is Shao Kahn after winning Armageddon in the original timeline, and might actually be canon to some degree.

      Honestly, this is how Shao Kahn should probably look in my opinion. I have nothing against the old designs -- they are great -- but this is how I would expect him to look like as an emperor of an entire realm. Comparing the design to previous versions of Shao Kahn, it is more or less the same but this time with more gold, engravings, and maybe slightly exaggerated spikes (they are taller and have more of a curve to them). Like I mentioned, it makes him look more like a greedy emperor without sacrificing the evil barbarian/samurai look which stays intact.

      The weirdest thing about it is that it looks like he is corrupted and is turning into a dragon somehow. But considering speculation this could be because 1) it has something to do with Onaga, or 2) they are just giving him more unique traits by changing how his race (which was never really explained) looks. Both of these are fine in concept, but I guess I will have to wait and see the execution to really get a solid opinion about it -- assuming he gets at least some story in the game that is canon: brief story mode scenes, canon arcade ending, etc.

      I do agree that it looks in-game, and I hope that is the case. It looks amazing and that background would be perfect for customization and menus, in my opinion. Whatever he's standing on reminds me of a clocktower, which I guess makes sense considering the game's story elements that were teased.

      I like how massive he looks, can’t wait to see how he plays. The design is decent, I still prefer MK2, but this isn’t bad at all. He’ll probably have most of his regular stuff available anyway.
    18. Jhonnykiller45
      Yes I do very much so believe this is a screenshot.
    19. Swindle
      I don’t understand.

      I can't wait to see what kind of gear we get omg

      But also

      Imagine Jade standing right where he's standing...and all the gear options she might have. Oof. The 17th can't get here sooner!! Ten more days of agonizing pain and teases from NRS. I don't know if I'll last. The only thing keeping me going is the thought of after the reveal, being bombarded with character trailers and reveals and teases out the ass. I need it.

      I have a feeling that, going off of the scaly arm and the design of the helmet, this look is supposed to be Onaga reincarnating himself using the clone of Shao Kahn that Quan Chi was creating (as seen in Quan Chi's Fortress in MKX).

      lol True, I don't even know why I thought that immediately I think it's cause I was watching a cooking show earlier and the chick cooking was using that lol yeah I thought of Shredder too a little bit with the spiked arms, definitely looks badass. I can't wait to see all the different helmets, masks we'll be able to get for him.


      lol guess I should have chosen my words more carefully:D

      We like some color and bling in America unlike you Canadians with your grey suits sitting under a grey cloud.
