Shang Tsung is back in Mortal Kombat 11 along with Noob Saibot, as revealed by NetherRealm Studios in a recent livestream.
Shang Tsung’s original film actor will be motion capturing the character model for the game which was the surprise announcement of the event. Shang Tsung was portrayed in the Mortal Kombat movie by Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa.
Shang Tsung will join along with Noob Saibot in Mortal Kombat 11. Both of these fan favorites were revealed in a new gameplay video which you can view below.
Here are the official bios for both of these new character additions to Mortal Kombat 11.
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.
Mortal Kombat 11 will be out on April 23, 2019, for the PS4, Xbox One, PC, and then at a later date for the Nintendo Switch.
