Classic Mortal Kombat characters Nightwolf, Shang Tsung, and Sindel have been revealed for the MK11 Kombat Pack. This DLC pack has been in the making for quite a while and brings beloved characters back to the tournament.
Shang Tsung is a shapeshifter who could become any fighter at will in older MK titles, we look forward to seeing the 2019 spin on that concept and hope its scope is large. So far, we know from the trailer that Shang Tsung has special moves of other MK ninjas including Smoke, Reptile, Rain, and more, and can even turn into the character he is fighting.

Nightwolf is a character with one of the smoothest move-sets in classic MK titles since his debut in MK3. His weaponry includes ethereal throwing axes Nightwolf was the first character to ever feature a temporary projectile deflect move. In MK9 the character was given further depth and pre-existing backstory finally animated.

Sindel was the Queen of Outworld after her kingdom was lost in the MK tournament and her realm was merged with that of Shao Kahn who forced her to rule at his side after enslaving and murdering her people. She is also the mother of Princess Kitana, a major character in MK11 as well as older MK titles. Her fighting styles include Zha Chuan, Fu Jow Pai, and a Kwan Dao weapon set.

Spawn will be added to MK11 marking the first time the dark comic book legend has appeared in a major fighting game since Soulcalibur 2. There is even some speculation that the red cape cameo seen in the trailer could indicate that Mortal Kombat 11 may attempt to be the first game to do Spawn’s iconic cape justice. Spawn should have some amazing moves with this living cape being a priceless weapon.
Two more characters will also be revealed for the Kombat Pack, likely at E3 2019. Leaks regarding data-mining hints at the following characters being potential Kombat Pack add-ons as well:
- Joker (Injustice DC Character)
- Terminator (The Terminator Film Character)
- Ash (Evil Dead Film Character)
- Johnny Cage & Raiden as announcers
Time will tell if these rumored add-ons are also part of the plan.
