Mortal Kombat 11 Nominated for TGA Best Fighting Game
Vote now for 2019's best fighter!

Twelve months after Mortal Kombat 11 was first announced with a world premier announce trailer-- the best selling fighting game will return to The Game Awards as a nominee for 2019 Best Fighting Game! Read on for voting details:

Public voting is now open, with five fighting game releases nominated by a jury of experts. You can see the full nominations announcement by watching the embedded video above.

Mortal Kombat 11 takes on a deceptively tough field in the fighting game category, which also includes: Dead Or Alive 6 (Koei Tecmo), Jump Force (Bandai Namco), Samurai Shodown (SNK), and Super Smash Bros Ultimate (Nintendo).

Mortal Kombat X was a shoo-in when it took 2015 Best Fighting Game, but this year NetherRealm Studios will contend with strong competition from the mash-up mass appeal of Smash Bros and Jump Force, and the dedicated cult followings of DOA and Samurai Shodown. Nintendo's arcade fighting franchise may be the game to beat, having amassed one of the biggest competitive followings in the genre!

Voting closes December 12th when The Game Awards will announce winners via live stream. Do you think MK11 will secure the statue? Vote now and a dive into the comments section below to tell us what you think!

Klassic fighter makes exciting return!

She decimated the fighters of Earthrealm in Mortal Kombat and raised Hell as a revenant in Mortal Kombat X. Now Sindel makes her long awaited playable return as a downloadable fighter in Mortal Kombat 11! Watch the official gameplay trailer:

The queen is dead, long live the queen! Sindel returns with a potent arsenal of special moves combining sonic screams, animated hair tossing, a deadly kwan dao, and a booty that will literally break faces! Whether she fights alive or dead, her experiences as a revenant appear to have enhanced her moves with a spectral presence!

Sindel comes with an array of customizable kombat designs that should please fans of all incarnations. Purple and black reign supreme, with layered fabrics, ornate royal jewelery, and rock opera leather that brings back memories of the good old days.

Mortal Kombat 11 has no shortage of customizable attire and skin options. The latest trailer also shows off the upcoming Gothic Horror skin pack, with vampiric Impaler Raiden, patchwork monster Geras, and Queen of the Dead Cetrion, as well as a separate "Klassic" look for Cassie Cage!

Sindel will be the latest additional fighter to become available from the Kombat Pack. As the fourth character following The Terminator, she'll be available via early access starting November 26th.

Nitara Actress Confirmed for Mortal Kombat Movie
Kombat vampiress will return on the big screen!

Somewhere in the wilds of Australia the new Mortal Kombat movie is now deep into production. The live-action reboot will boast a roster of anticipated classic kombatants, but the latest casting confirmation has revealed someone fairly unexpected: NItara! Read on for details:

A behind-the-scenes Instagram video posted by Liu Kang actor Ludi Lin tipped fans off to the surprising inclusion. The clip features a tour of the actor's trailers, each labelled with their respective character's name, including a quarters shared by Nitara and Mileena.

Responding to fans via Twitter, writer Greg Russo clarified that stunt performer Elissa Cadwell (Aquaman) will play Nitara. Australian actress Sisi Stringer was announced in the role of Mileena back in August.

Rumors of Nitara's inclusion in the film first surfaced with an alleged script leak last year. The report was quickly condemned by producer James Wan and Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon. Its source was revealed to be part of an early script draft, by writer Greg Russo.

Nitara was first introduced to the series with 2002's landmark Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. She was a winged vampire seeking to liberate her realm, later dubbed Vaeternus, from its merged status with Outworld. Her mission led to the manipulation of Cyrax and Reptile.

The inclusion will come as a surprise to most fans, who anticipate a retelling of the early tournament mythology of the series. Nitara had little to do with that period of the saga, which may suggest a minor appearance in the 2021 film. Other anachronistic characters previously reported to appear include Reiko and Drahmin.


Nitara's first bio screen from 2002 debut Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance

Mortal Kombat began filming in September with director Simon McQuoid for a theatrical release March 5th, 2021. Check out the new movie dragon logo and follow all the news and discussion in the Media & Merchandise forum!
