The upcoming release of Mortal Kombat 1 is generating excitement among fans, and the latest news is sure to add to the anticipation. The game’s roster already features returning characters from the series’ 3D era, such as Ashrah and Havik. Now, another long-lost favorite is set to join the fight. Nitara, a vampire who made her debut in 2002’s Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, is making her long-awaited return.
Despite only making a few appearances in the past, Nitara has remained a beloved character among fans who grew up with the games from the 2000s era. With her deadly skills and captivating design, she is sure to make an impact in Mortal Kombat 1.
In an exciting development, actress Megan Fox has been enlisted to provide the voice for Nitara. In a press release, Fox expressed her honor and enthusiasm for the opportunity. “I grew up playing Mortal Kombat, and I can’t believe that I’m voicing a character in the new game,” she stated. “It’s an honor to be a part of one of the greatest video game legacies of all time.” This move follows the trend of NetherRealm Studios bringing in celebrities to voice their iconic characters, as seen with Ronda Rousey voicing Sonya Blade in Mortal Kombat 11.
Mortal Kombat 1 is set to launch on September 19 for PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X/S, Switch, and PC.
