Teasing characters by their footwear is old hat for Ed Boon, but in the latest hint for what's coming to Mortal Kombat 11, we're pretty sure we've got a good idea of what to expect. Nightwolf is coming to downloadable content soon and an eerie new screenshot teaser could be the first hint of a trailer. Check it out:

The new image appears to show DLC sorcerer Shang Tsung standing opposite a new challenger. The mystery warrior brandishes a small hand axe and is outfitted in distinctive foot and leg wear with feathers around the ankle. The red and blue palette suggests Nightwolf, whose trademark weapons have long included mystically charged tomahawks!

Identifying the boot is a lot easier than past cases. Nightwolf was one of three additional Kombat Pack characters announced in the Shang Tsung reveal trailer. The teaser screenshot is the first official glimpse, but we've also seen a sketch icon for the announced fighters.

The image could be an in-fight intro, but its black void seems in keeping with the style used in reveal trailers for Mortal Kombat X's Kombat Pack 1 and Kombat Pack 2. That could suggest we'll see a Nightwolf or dedicated MK11 Kombat Pack trailer soon!

Do you think the mystery fighter is Nightwolf? If so, what do you hope to see from a trailer? Tell us all about it in the comments below and join the discussion on the Mortal Kombat 11 forum!
