During the latest Kombat Kast live stream, NetherRealm Studios showed off a gallery of concept arts. Here are some of the designs for Kitana [click to enlarge]:

Kitana is a signature member of the Mortal Kombat roster, so we wanted to come up with something exciting and fresh for her look in Mortal Kombat X.

Past incarnations have tended to favor the royal qualities of the character over the warrior aspects, so we decided to reverse that for her costume. She has a stealthier, more ninja inspired design with blue as an accent color against the black parts of her costume.

Apparently past designs have focused on Kitana's "royal qualities". That's certainly an interesting way of putting it. We might argue that's what's been missing from Kitana's usually pared down designs, especially in the last few games.

Executive Producer Shaun Himmerick recently confirmed a plethora of opportunities for additional DLC skins for Mortal Kombat X. Could one of these be Kitana's? Register to share your favorites on the forum!
