The news came via today’s edition of the Kombat Kast, which is a periodic live stream series held by NetherRealm to talk about all things related to Mortal Kombat. Today’s Kombat Kast was the first that has been held since MK11 was revealed and the studio didn’t waste any time by announcing Kabal to be joining the roster.
