New Mortal Kombat™ 11 reveals Kitana as latest playable character
11 April 2019
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios released a new Mortal Kombat™ 11 television spot revealing Kitana as the latest playable character. The TV spot is driven by the universal concept that each of us has a fighter within that pushes us to fight for what we believe in. To bring the concept to life, WBIE tapped Create Advertising Group, Director Joe Sill and Plastic Wax to craft a world where everyday people possess the strength and powers of the iconic Mortal Kombat™ 11 characters. To further push this concept, Plastic Wax added visual effects, including Sub-Zero’s ice manipulation, Raiden’s lightning and Kitana’s steel fan weapons. As one person passes through the shadows, a different person emerges, heading towards their final fight.
The TV spot also confirms that Kitana will be joining the Mortal Kombat™ 11 roster. 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. Tune in to NetherRealm’s popular Kombat Kast livestream this week for an in-depth gameplay walkthrough featuring Kitana, available on Twitch, YouTube, Twitter, Facebook and Mixer.
The growing roster of confirmed playable fighters in Mortal Kombat™ 11 includes Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D'Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax Briggs, Cetrion, The Kollector and Kitana, with more exciting reveals coming in the weeks ahead.
