NetherRealm Studios continues to surprise fans, this time with a thrilling new trailer for Mortal Kombat 1 (embedded above). The spotlight shines on Nitara, the enigmatic vampire from Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance. Moreover, the character comes to life under the talented portrayal of renowned actor Megan Fox.
Best known for her roles in movies like Transformers, Fox lends her charisma and star power to the Mortal Kombat universe. While Nitara’s thirst for blood is paramount to her survival, she is not naturally evil. As the trailer reveals, her intricate relationship with Lin Kuei, Ashrah, and even her provoking interactions with Kung Lao are set to be focal points in the game.
Speed and agility seem to be at the heart of Nitara’s fighting style. Her swift attacks and ability to soar through the sky make her a formidable opponent. Notably, she harnesses the power of blood, granting her enhanced capabilities. However, this power comes with a price; she might damage herself for an extra edge. While the trailer provides a tantalizing glimpse, players eagerly await further insights into her skillset.
Mortal Kombat 1 is slated for release on September 19th, available on Xbox Series X/S, PS5, PC, and the Nintendo Switch. However, it’s worth noting that there have been murmurs about performance issues on the Nintendo Switch, as indicated by recent leaks. For those who pre-order, an enticing bonus awaits – the iconic Shang Tsung as a playable character. Furthermore, for the ardent fans opting for the Premium Edition, early access is granted from September 14th.
