The game is said to include a new, original and non-linear storyline "showcasing some of the game's most prolific characters including Scorpion and Sub-Zero, while introducing new challengers that represent the forces of good and evil and tie the tale together." At E3 2014, it was confirmed that the story would begin at the end of the previous game and then eventually transition to twenty-five years into the future, placing emphasis on aged veterans, new characters and the next-generation offspring of the previous fighters. Characters Along with incumbents Scorpion and Sub-Zero, four new fighters have been announced so far: D'Vorah, a woman who controls insects; Ferra/Torr, a pairing consisting of a dwarf-woman and a giant masked brute; Cassie Cage, the daughter of Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade; and Kotal Kahn, an Aztec-inspired "blood god." According to series creator Ed Boon, the game's main antagonist will be a "surprise returning character." Each character will come in three very different versions. For example, Scorpion's three variations are "Hellfire", "Ninjutsu" and "Inferno".
