The next playable character for upcoming fighting game Mortal Kombat X has been revealed.

As was rumored, Johnny Cage will join the roster, fighting alongside his previously confirmed daughter, Cassie Cage. This is according to Adam Urbano, a senior producer at developer NetherRealm Studios.

Urbano says in a since-removed video interview with Game Crate (a mirror of which was also taken down) that Johnny Cage is indeed playable in Mortal Kombat X. He also suggests that Kenshi, another rumored fighter for the game, is confirmed for the game.

"You'll get to play as Johnny Cage, but we're also showing Cassie Cage, who is the daughter of Sonya and Johnny," Urbano said in the interview, according to IGN. "You'll get a chance to see Kenshi and a chance to see a couple more."

Mortal Kombat X launches April 14 for Xbox One, Xbox 360, PlayStation 4,PlayStation 3, and PC. A mobile version of the game is also in development. For more on the game's fighter roster, be sure to read GameSpot's roundup of every confirmed and rumored character so far.
