Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and NetherRealm Studios have revealed that Kitana and The Kollector have joined the playable character roster in Mortal Kombat 11.
Kitana is the 10,000-year-old princess of Edenia, who grew up believing that she was Shao Kahn’s biological daughter and served as one of his deadliest warriors. When she learned the truth, she fought against Shao Kahn’s attempted conquest of Earthrealm but was eventually slain in battle. After being resurrected as an evil revenant version of her former self, Kitana now rules the Netherrealm alongside revenant Liu Kang, dedicated to the destruction of all the realms.
Whereas The Kollector is a new fighter that joins the Mortal Kombat franchise. He was born into poverty and seized his collections duty with a zeal that impressed Shao Kahn, becoming one of the Emperor’s most feared associates. As more of a corrupt, mafia enforcer than a government official, The Kollector stole riches from Outworld’s people, rewarding himself with wealth and status in turn, but when Shao Kahn died, Kotal Kahn vowed to weed out the former regime’s corruption. After years in hiding, living off his ill-gotten gains, The Kollector was captured and now faces execution, determined to destroy anyone in his path.
The growing roster of playable fighters confirmed for Mortal Kombat 11 includes Scorpion, Raiden, Sub-Zero, Sonya Blade, Skarlet, Baraka, Geras, Kano, D’Vorah, Kabal, Jade, Johnny Cage, Cassie Cage, Erron Black, Jacqui Briggs, Kotal Kahn, Noob Saibot, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax Briggs, and Cetrion.
Mortal Kombat 11 will release for Nintendo Switch worldwide on April 23rd, with Shao Kahn available as a pre-order bonus.
