Mortal Kombat 11 Returning Characters Include Skarlet, Kabal, And More
One of the biggest surprises to come out of The Game Awards last month was the official reveal of Mortal Kombat 11. The game’s announcement was presented by Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon as a ‘mistakenly’ played video whilst presenting an award, but was surely a pleasant surprise to many. While little was shown in that trailer, it did assure Mortal Kombat fans of the return of series mainstays Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Raiden. Today, a major livestream and gameplay trailer for Mortal Kombat 11 was released, which confirmed several additional characters that are returning for Mortal Kombat 11.

The official Mortal Kombat Twitter account has shared all of the various new footage and trailers that made their debut today throughout the events promoting the latest entry in the series. Some of the most excited reactions came from the reveal of Baraka and his fatality in the new game. Another big highlight was the assurance of Sonya Blade’s return, who will now be voiced by UFC and WWE superstar Ronda Rousey. This casting seemed to be hinted at by Rousey recently on her Instagram account, and now it has been confirmed.
The rest of the returning characters seen today also included Skarlet, another popular female fighter. The footage also gave brief glimpses of Kabal, first introduced in Mortal Kombat 3, Liu Kang, who has been around since the first MK game, and Kung Lao. Lastly, Shao Kahn was announced to be an available fighter for those who pre-order. Footage of Mortal Kombat 11 also showed a character selection screen with 25 roster slots, so expect many more character confirmations before the launch in April.
