The deadly vampire of the realm of Vaeternus is back! Nitara is officially revealed in a new Mortal Kombat 1 trailer that confirms the widely rumored casting of Hollywood actress Megan Fox. The playable roster is almost complete! Watch and learn:
Nitara marks the return of another "3D era" klassic. Originally introduced in 2002's Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, she was MK's first bloodsucking vampire, and has been slowly making a comeback through minor appearances in the 2021 film reboot and Mortal Kombat Legends: Scorpion's Revenge. Along with a new celebrity face, Nitara has undergone a design update, switching her jet black locks and dark leathery wings for a subdued red & flesh tone.
Megan Fox is hardly the first actor to find their way into recent Mortal Kombat releases. MMA & WWE Champion Ronda Rousey played as a similar role as Sonya Blade in MK11, and MK1 will also add martial arts movie legend Jean-Claude Van Damme as a Johnny Cage skin! Not to mention all the crossover guest characters, such as John Cena's Peacemaker in Kombat Pack DLC.
