Mortal Kombat 11 panel at C2E2 reveals two new playable characters 'Noob Saibot' and 'Shang Tsung'
27 March 2019
Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios revealed a new Mortal Kombat™ 11 gameplay trailer featuring returning fan-favourite character, Noob Saibot, showcased during the official Mortal Kombat™ 11 Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo (C2E2) panel. Also announced was Shang Tsung, the first downloadable content (DLC) character revealed for Mortal Kombat™ 11. Actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa will lend his voice and likeness to the iconic character that he portrayed in the classic 1998 Mortal Kombat™ film.
Noob Saibot, once known by the name Bi-Han, and the original Sub-Zero, he was a cold-blooded assassin, corrupt from years of violence and evil. Murdered by his clan’s enemy, Scorpion, Bi-Han was resurrected as the black-clad wraith, Noob Saibot. Both shadowy and mysterious, his soul was stripped of compassion and remorse, and now he considers himself the perfect warrior using his ninja-like and phantom abilities to carry out his darkest impulses.
Shang Tsung was the host of the first Mortal Kombat tournament and faithful servant to Shao Khan. A powerful, shapeshifting sorcerer, he absorbs living souls to maintain his youthful appearance and command, while morphing into other characters to use his adversaries’ own moves against them in battle. Shang Tsung is one of six playable DLC fighters included in the Kombat Pack, which is part of the Mortal Kombat™ 11 Premium and Kollector’s Editions.
Noob Saibot and Shang Tsung join the growing roster of playable Mortal Kombat™ 11 fighters, alongside Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D'Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, and Kotal Kahn.
