NetherRealm Studios have confirmed another returning playable character in Mortal Kombat 11.
Kitana, who made her debut in Mortal Kombat 2, is returning in the latest fighting game.
While she was seen in the briefest of snippets in a prior trailer, due to the plots time-travel shenanigans we could not be sure in what capacity she would be in the game. It seems much like Raiden and Liu Kang, the present/future version Kitana has also turned to evil.
“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.”
Mortal Kombat 11 is launching April 23rd for Windows PC (via Steam), Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One.
