Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios today revealed a new Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay trailer featuring returning fan-favorite character, Noob Saibot, showcased during the official Mortal Kombat 11 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) panel. Also announced was Shang Tsung, the first downloadable content (DLC) character revealed for Mortal Kombat 11. Actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa will lend his voice and likeness to the iconic character that he portrayed in the classic 1998 Mortal Kombat film.
Noob Saibot and Shang Tsung join the growing roster of playable Mortal Kombat 11 fighters, alongside Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D’Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, and Kotal Kahn.
NetherRealm has a reputation of adding some off beat characters to their games post launch such as Hellboy and the Ninja Turtles. Shang Tsung’s inclusion is natural but you can’t help but wonder what outside franchise Ed Boon and his team will bring to Mortal Kombat 11. Chucky? The cast of Stranger Things? We won’t have to wait much longer to find out as the game is set to launch this April with DLC to follow shortly.
Mortal Kombat 11 wil be available April 23, 2019 for PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch. A beta for Xbox and PlayStation pre-orders is coming at the end of March, to join simply pre-order from select retailers and digital stores.
