One of the earliest stories that established the Mortal Kombat universe was the
relationship between Jax and Kano. Jax, a Special Forces agent, was hot on the trail of
career criminal Kano, when he was led into the Mortal Kombat tournament.
Kano represented the criminal underworld and Mortal Kombat was a supernatural event that
caused all of these things to collide. But, we've only hinted at their shaded past.
What events caused Kax to despise Kano so much? How did Kano himself come to be involved
with Shang Tsung? Why is Jax so bent on stopping Kano's gang. Is it the Black Dragon?
There's a story to be told here and one that will allow new elements of gameplay, while
remaining true to the myths that make up the Mortal Kombat universe.
Jax has a new mission. It's a mission He's always wanted to undertake, and the disdain
for his nemesis Kano is much too great to ignore any longer. Kano represents the criminal
underworld and Mortal Kombat was a supernatural event that
caused the chasm between these two powerful rivals.
Jax will be forced into hand to hand combat, as well as vicious gun battles as he hunts
down Kano. Join Jax in his search for Kano, destroying his henchmen along the way. Get
ready, another battle has just begun.
