‘Mortal Kombat 11’ Adds 1995 Film Character Skins And Voices

Mortal Kombat 11 has seen quite the addition of characters since its launch. They’ve added some fan-favorites like Mileena. Their third-party additions this time were some R-rated movie icons like Terminator, RoboCop, and even Rambo, who is actually voiced by Sylvester Stallone. Probably the biggest addition was that they redesigned Shang Tsung to look like his 1995 film counterpart Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa. Even better, he returned to voice the character in the Aftermath DLC. Well, it looks like that wasn’t the only trip down memory lane, as franchise creator and MK11 director Ed Boon revealed three more returning additions from the original film.

Yes, they are adding three more movie skins for Raiden, Johnny Cage, and Sonya Blade. Their original actors also return with Christopher Lambert, Linden Ashby, and Bridgette Wilson returning to the iconic roles. The trailer shows them off into action. Fans of the original might’ve noticed that they recreated some of their iconic fights from the film as well. They also added a rendition of the original’s iconic song, which was a great touch.

Hopefully, this new Skin Pack might also mean we are could see others return to the franchise. Robin Shou gave a memorable performance as Liu Kang and is sadly missing from this line-up. They could even be working on skins based on the franchise’s upcoming reboot, which may have been delayed due to the pandemic. This inclusion is such a great touch and showcases how MK11 also acts as a love letter to the franchise. Hopefully, we’ll see many more tributes in the future. Now, the only question remains will they acknowledge Mortal Kombat: Annihilation?
