Earlier this year the Mortal Kombat movie celebrated its 25th anniversary and it looks like Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate will be marking the occasion with new character skins! NetherRealm Studios teased the addition with vanity shots of three of the film's leading characters. Take a look:
Movie-based skins have been a poorly kept secret in the age of data-mining, with in-game code betraying the inclusion of voice acting for Bridgette Wilson-Sampras as Sonya Blade, Linden Ashby as Johnny Cage, and Christopher Lambert as Raiden. Mortal Kombat socials played it coy with teaser art, but Ed Boon put it all into context via Twitter.
Mortal Kombat 11 already featured the likeness of film star Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa as Shang Tsung in the first downloadable character released from the original Kombat Pack.
Tagawa's voice can be heard guiding and chiding players through The Krypt, and fans eagerly anticipate the expected release of a Shang Tsung announcer pack. There are also rumors of another movie-inspired announcer pack.
