Mortal Kombat writer Warner Bros. Video games has introduced that vampire warrior Nitara, who debuted in 2002’s Mortal Kombat: Lethal Alliance and was hardly ever seen once more, will return to the collection in forthcoming reboot Mortal Kombat 1. In case you’ve tragically misplaced Nitara within the 21 years of cobwebs that crowd your gaming reminiscence, then Warner Bros. has a option to lower via: this time, Nitara can be voiced by, and modeled after, Jennifer’s Physique actor Megan Fox.
“She comes from this bizarre realm,” Fox stated about Nitara in her reveal trailer. “She is a sort of vampire creature, she’s evil, however she’s additionally good; she’s making an attempt to save lots of her folks. I actually like her. She’s a vampire, which clearly resonates for no matter motive.”

For Valentine’s Day in 2021, Fox’s toothpick boyfriend, rapper Machine Gun Kelly, confirmed Instagram the drop of Fox’s blood he wears encased in a translucent necklace. In a 2022 interview, Fox informed Glamour UK that she and MGK additionally eat one another’s blood “once in a while”—“Only a few drops,” she stated, and “for ritual functions solely.” So I feel she’s acquired this technique performing factor down.
“I’m probably not simply voicing it, […] she’s form of me,” Fox continued within the trailer. “[The Nitara acting sessions] drive me to faucet into areas of myself that I’m not snug [with]. I’ve had loads of enjoyable doing it, and it’s brought about me to be extra free with myself.”
Nitara by no means shied from discomfort—in Lethal Alliance, the Feast of Blood fatality had Nitara howling earlier than pouncing on a sufferer and tearing out slabs of flesh together with her enamel.
Cute, however MK1 tries one thing new. The trailer seems to display a never-before-seen fatality, during which Nitara delivers her five-inch-long fingernails into her opponent’s abdomen, pulls out his entrails, then holds onto them like rope as her bat wings pump excessive into the air.
She yanks him up by the intestines, then kicks him again down with a lot drive that the pores and skin and meat falls off his physique. His clear skeleton shatters on the bottom.
It’s refined, it’s tasteful, I prefer it. And you’ll see much more Nitara when MK1 releases on PS5, Xbox Sequence X/S, Nintendo Change, and PC on September 19, although its premium and collector’s version grant early entry on September 14.
