NetherRealm has announced a raft of DLC characters coming to Mortal Kombat 11.
A new video shows gameplay of veteran Mortal Kombat villain Shang Tsung. Mortal Kombat 11 uses the voice and likeness of actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa for the soul-stealing sorcerer. Tagawa played Shang Tsung in the Mortal Kombat movie, and there’s a wonderful nod to that appearance in Mortal Kombat 11 – one of Shang Tsung’s victory cutscenes shows him point at the screen and declare: “Your soul is mine!”
As for the gameplay, Shang Tsung’s soul-stealing ability takes centre stage, as does his shapeshifting ability. We see him transform into various characters during fights, including Raiden and the ninja characters. His fatal blow sees him transform into Sub-Zero, Scorpion and finally Noob Saibot for big damage. His fatality sees him create a manifestation of dead four-armed monstrosity Goro, who explodes from within his unfortunate opponent. Early access to Shang Tsung begins 18th June.
