The original movie actor for Shang Tsung is set to appear in Mortal Kombat 11’s first DLC pack, as Ash from Evil Dead is teased.
It looks like those rumours about Mortal Kombat 11 DLC characters were on the money, as NetherRealm has announced four new fighters for the game.
The only one they’ve shown is shapeshifting bad guy Shang Tsung, who will have the face and voice of Hollywood actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa – who portrayed the character in the original Mortal Kombat movie.
The ‘Your soul is mine!’ line is also straight out of the movie, which is a great touch and really makes the most of NetherRealm’s excellent facial animation system.
Confirmed by name are fellow Mortal Kombatants Nightwolf and Sindel, plus comic book character Spawn – who you might know from a similar cameo in the Xbox version of SoulCalibur II.
The trailer above also confirms two more guest characters (presumably a reference to the fact that they’re not Mortal Kombat regulars), as the screen is covered by blood and the sound of a chainsaw is heard.
Although that may seem a little ambiguous this is almost certainly a nod to Ash Williams from Evil Dead, because all these characters were leaked before and with that knowledge the chainsaw seems an obvious reference.
The only problem with the rumours is that they specified nine characters and the first ‘Kombat Pack’ only has six.
The other four names were Sheeva, Fujin, Joker, and the Terminator, and while the clue isn’t as blatant as Ash you could interpret the final bit of music at the end of the trailer as a version of The Terminator movie theme tune.
If you pre-order you can get a week’s early access and find out for sure as early as 18 June, with the pack also containing new skin and gear DLC for each character and 19 additional skins.
The only downside is the pack costs a whopping £32.99, only £22 less than the game itself.
