The ethereal realm of video gaming is all set to witness the re-entrance of a beloved character from 'Mortal Kombat 1'. This time, the character of Nitara, a vampiric femme fatale, will echo with the voice of renowned Hollywood actress Megan Fox. The confirmation came from none other than NetherRealm Studios, the creators behind this ever-popular fighting franchise, preparing for a launch this month.
The return of Nitara is noteworthy in itself. For those who don't know, she made her debut in 'Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance.' She is a vampire from Outworld and is slightly off the radar when it comes to the pantheon of Mortal Kombat characters. She made a few appearances in games and other media, marking her return to the series after a hibernation period of 17 years since her last appearance in 'MK: Armageddon.'
The freshly tailored trailer for the game unveils her makeover. Nitara can be seen retaining her iconic wings, donned in an intriguing, formidable-looking armor, a testament to her vampiric lineage. She can predominantly be seen fighting in the air, illustrating her unique combos and a new mechanism involving a ‘blood seal.’ A glimpse of the storyline also suggests that Nitara, despite being an antihero, may align with the villains in the game.
The voice of Megan Fox is a cherry on the cake! It is well known that she's a big fan of the Mortal Kombat franchise and has even expressed her desire to voice the character of Princess Kitana. While her wish to voice Princess Kitana remains unfulfilled, Megan does get to epitomize the character of Nitara, which undoubtedly would be a dream come true for her. The recording process, as Megan shared, allowed her to express herself freely and dive deep into the character of Nitara, making her experience a joyful one.
Mortal Kombat 1 is relaunching itself with an altered continuity, unveiling revised storylines and characters. While the initial characters, Liu Kang, Scorpion, and Johnny Cage, remain, the game promises an entirely new gaming experience, including the addition of Megan Fox's Nitara. If you share a penchant for fighting games, brace yourselves for an enthralling journey into the realm where the fight is for more than mortal.
