In the movies, The Terminator’s catchphrase is “I’ll be back.” In Mortal Kombat 11, however, the catchphrase arrives with a twist.
Win a match and The Terminator, which features Arnie’s likeness from the upcoming Terminator film, says, “You won’t be back.” Brutal.
NetherRealm’s Terminator is packed with references like this to the Terminator movies. Each intro and outtro, for example, is a direct reference to a moment in Terminator 2. One intro sees the Terminator walk forward, taking his trademark shotgun out of Johnny Cage doll box, which is a recreation of the iconic shotgun scene in Terminator 2 when Arnie turns up to save John Connor.
