Kitana joins the Mortal Kombat 11 roster

Mortal Kombat 11 - Kitana - MK11 - Nintendo Switch

It should come as no surprise that the adoptive daughter of Outworld’s evil emperor, Shao Kahn, is once again gracing the Mortal Kombat roster in Netherrealm’s upcoming Mortal Kombat 11. Kitana is a mainstay of the franchise alongside fan-favorites such as Raiden, Lui Kang, and Scorpion. The official “konfirmation” came in a cinematic trailer shared to Twitter early today featuring the Edenian princess trading blows with Scorpion. It’s rather short, but it appears to be a commercial spot which is usually relegated to 1 minute. In other words, no bloody devastation or fatalities are depicted in this trailer.  You can check it out for yourself below.

While we didn’t really get to see gameplay footage of Kitana in action, that might be for the best. We don’t want everything spoiled for us now do we? Besides, fans of the character likely already know what to expect. Those sharpened fan blades aren’t going to be looking that clean after a fight, that’s for sure. The game releases on April 23 which is just around the corner.

Mortal Kombat 11 on Nintendo Switch

If you are gearing up to pick up a copy of the Switch version of the game but have your reservations about the quality, check out our hands-on preview of the game running on Nintendo Switch. Also, if you’re just now joining the “konversation” — I know, sorry, I can’t help it — be sure to take a look at the other fighters that we do know about. Netherrealm has gradually released a host of details about the game mainly focusing on roster developments of characters both old and new. Many characters come with their only trailers featuring gameplay footage usually ending with a gut-wrenching fatality — literally and figuratively. And, I’m sure there’s more to come as the game will likely launch packed with its own surprises.
