A bit of a surprise going into the weekend as NetherRealm Studios revealed Noob Saibot and Shang Tsung are joining Mortal Kombat 11. The news came out at C2E2 today, and while it’s nice to see them added, it’s also not so new at the moment. Noob was leaked over a week ago and Tsung being a part of the roster was rumored almost since the beginning. That all came with a brand new trailer showing off Noob Saibot’s moves as he faces off against his younger brother, the current Sub-Zero. The one disappointing factor in this is that Tsung is not part of the main roster, but is the first official DLC character, meaning you get him because of time travel but not as a part of the story. Here are the official character descriptions, artwork, and the new trailer for you to enjoy!
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.
