Developer NetherRealm has revealed Quan Chi as he latest character added to the Mortal Kombat X roster.

Quan Chi, a sorcerer, uses spells to create standard fireballs and another projectile that lures players in. His powers can also be used to summon beasts, but perhaps the most inventive application of his repertoire is using portals to punch people from distance.

The character first appeared as a boss on the N64 game Mythologies: Sub-Zero, and was later introduced as a playable character in Mortal Kombat 4.

In the video above, the project's executive producer Shaun Himmerick offers an outline of Quan Chi's powers.

Mortal Kombat X's release date is marked for April 14, 2015, with it set to ship on Xbox One, PS4, PS3, Xbox 360, and PC.

After I saw Raiden I knew I must have this, Mortal Kombat IX was insane (Best one in my opinion with MK3 and MK4). But Quan Chi? OmG..

Is it really "returning" if he's been in every game since MK4?

MK9 was fantastic. This is looking to be a solid entry in the franchise as well. Love those Warlock moves.

I'm excited about this game, don't fuk it up NR.

With that said I still believe they should of skipped last-gen developpement. Probably would of got the game earlier and also a better game who takes full advantage of the newer hardware :/

<< LINK REMOVED >> They said they aren't developing for last gen. Their focus is entirely on current-gen. A third-party studio is going to port down the game, so they aren't wasting any time or resources on the 360 or PS3 versions.
