"Wondering about Jean-Claude Van Damme as Johnny Cage? Gaming Age reveals the answer"
Jean-Claude Van Damme joins Mortal Kombat 1 as Johnny Cage in a new trailer, featuring his likeness and voice.
Mortal Kombat 1 marks the beginning of a fresh chapter filled with endless possibilities. One fascinating aspect of the series involves the urban legend surrounding Jean-Claude Van Damme's potential involvement in the game. Although he was initially approached to portray a character named Michael Grimm, the collaboration fell through, leading to the creation of the character Johnny Cage, played by Daniel Pesina.
Now, after 11 main titles and a staggering 80 million copies sold, it seems that Ed Boon's wish has finally come true. Jean-Claude Van Damme's likeness will be featured in the game as a premium skin for Johnny Cage. In a new trailer released by NetherRealm, we catch a glimpse of this skin, which perfectly captures Van Damme's iconic look. Sporting black shorts, a red sash, and black shoes, the skin pays homage to Van Damme's character Frank Dux in the film Bloodsport. Not only does the skin resemble Van Damme, but it also includes his voice and witty remarks, referencing his role in another popular fighting game series.
The JCVD Johnny Cage skin will be exclusively available in the premium edition of Mortal Kombat 1. This edition is already star-studded, as it features prominent voice roles from Kelly Hu and Megan Fox in addition to the first Kombat Pack, which includes JK Simmons and John Cena voicing Omni-Man and Peacekeeper, respectively. With such an impressive lineup, Mortal Kombat 1 is set to redefine the gaming experience on PC, Switch, PlayStation, and Xbox platforms, releasing on September 19th.
In celebration of this momentous occasion, NetherRealm has released the official Jean-Claude Van Damme trailer for Mortal Kombat 1.
