In case you missed it, Mortal Kombat X is making waves with its gameplay and they've added a gay character.
Kung Jin—a one of the new Shaolin Monks fighting for Earthrealm—appears to be the first gay male character in Mortal Kombat. The revelation comes during a flashback cutscene.
Relevant dialogue starts at about 3:30 in the video above, where Raiden says, “Self-loathing has always been an unfortunate part of your make-up.” Later, after the thunder god tries to get Kung Jin to follow in his ancestors’ footsteps and become a warrior monk, Kung Jin says, “I can’t... They won’t accept...” Raiden—who knows what the young mortal’s talking about because, well, he’s a god—replies by saying, “They care about only what is in your heart; not whom your heart desires.”
