Mortal Kombat 11 gets two more fighters with six arms between them

The kombatants just keep on coming. Mortal Kombat 11 has been steadily revealing more and more content as it draws closer to release, and it’s showing no signs of slowing down anytime soon, as two more fighters have been shown off for the game in the space of three days.

First off we have the Kollector, a new fighter who is allied with Shao Kahn. Have a look at their reveal trailer below:

True to his name, the Kollector (who appears to be the love-child of Gollum and an avatar) has an avarice that extends to riches, power, and judging from his fatality, vital organs. It’s interesting to note the emphasis on speed in his moveset; past fighters who had four arms such as Goro and Kintaro were much more on the slow-but-powerful side,  with a physique that would have Arnold Schwarzenegger feeling inadequate.

Conversely,  Kollector is much leaner and varied with his movements,  as each hand seems to have a purpose beyond simply punching the other guy. Overall, he should be another fun addition to the Mortal Kombat 11 roster.

And a familiar monarch has graciously returned for Mortal Kombat 11

Next up is the return of Princess Kitana, who was revealed in a TV spot for the game. Stay to the end to see her in action:

What’s shown of her doesn’t seem to be in-game footage, but she still looks to be as quick and deadly as ever with her bladed fans. Knowing the developers, we won’t have to wait very long to see how she plays via their YouTube channel.

It’s worth noting that the Kitana we see here is still human, so it’s likely that this is another case of a past fighter being transported through time. It’ll be interesting to see how the princess of Edenia reacts to learning her current self is a revenant in charge of Outworld. Quite the shift in ideals, there.

More Mortal Kombat 11 news is sure to hit soon, so we’ll continue to bring it to you as it develops. The game is set for release on April 23rd, so we won’t have to wait much longer until we can start the carnage ourselves. I can’t wait to have my rear handed to me online a dozen times in a row.
