Series mainstay Kitana has been confirmed to once again appear in the newest entry of the ultra-brutal fighting game Mortal Kombat 11. Accompanying the news by Warner Bros. Interactive is a short TV spot. Sadly, it’s not actual gameplay but fully CG. Check out the trailer!
Developer NetherRealm’s 11th entry into the cult gory fighting series is almost upon us. Mortal Kombat 11 is launching next month, on April 23rd for PC, PlayStation, Xbox One and even the comparably weak Nintendo Switch. Ever since MK11 was officially unveiled back in December last year the hype machine has been ramping up. We previously shared our hands-on experience with an early build of Mortal Kombat 11 and suffice to say, the insane hype the game has managed to create in such a short time is well-deserved. You can read more in detail about our thoughts here.
The 10,000-year-old princess of Edenia grew up believing she was Shao Kahn’s biological daughter and served as one of his deadliest warriors. When Kitana learned the truth, she fought against Shao Kahn’s attempted conquest of Earthrealm, eventually dying in battle. After being resurrected as an evil revenant version of her former self, Kitana now rules the Netherrealm alongside revenant Liu Kang, dedicated to the destruction of all the realms.
We already know about a healthy amount of characters in Mortal Kombat 11. There are franchise veterans like Sub-Zero, Raiden, Johnny Cage, Sorpion, Sonja Blade and more, but also entirely new faces – to break – with the Elder God Cetrion and the Kollector. The return of Kitana isn’t really that surprising considering the fierce fighter with a penchant to bite off her opponent’s face has been a part of almost all Mortal Kombat games.
Probably more interesting than the expected return of Kitana is the story in Mortal Kombat 11 and what implications it will have. Time travel and multiple dimensions have already led to awesome and funny encounters, and the final game will no doubt double down on that aspect.
