Mortal Kombat 11’s character list is currently looking very healthy. From Scorpion’s undead ninja techniques to Baraka’s remarkable tooth setup, Mortal Kombat’s larger-than-life characters have always made it unique, and we’re thrilled to see so many of our favourites making a return in the grisly but still gloriously (or should that be gore-iously) pretty Mortal Kombat 11.
Mortal Kombat 11 continues on from the gore-filled drama of Mortal Kombat X, which ended with the defeat of its primary bad guy Shinnok, and saw the thunder god Raiden tampering with the events of the past. Now a goddess named Kronika is on the warpath, looking to punish Raiden for his interference. Her time-based powers make her a formidable opponent, and while she won’t be a playable character, she does have the honour of being the first female boss in the series.
She’s not the only new thing coming to Mortal Kombat 11 though. In amongst a whole pile of exciting gameplay reveals, we’ve also had our first glimpse at Mortal Kombat 11’s fighter lineup, and while we know and love a lot of the characters already, there are one or two fresh faces we can’t wait to see more of.
So here’s the full list of 24 playable characters that we know about so far, including the two DLC additions. Which of these formidable fighters is your all-time favourite?
Shang Tsung (DLC)
Shao Kahn (DLC)
