Mortal Kombat Reboot Introduces Vampire Warrior Nitara Voiced and Modeled by Megan Fox

Warner Bros. Games has announced that the long-lost vampire warrior Nitara is making a comeback in the forthcoming reboot of Mortal Kombat. First introduced in 2002's Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance, Nitara has been rarely seen since then. However, she will now return to the series in Mortal Kombat 1. What makes this announcement even more exciting is that Nitara will be voiced by and modeled after the talented actor Megan Fox, known for her roles in films such as “Jennifer’s Body.”

In a reveal trailer, Fox described Nitara as a vampire creature from a strange realm who is both evil and good. She explained that Nitara is on a mission to save her people. Fox expressed her affinity for the character and her vampire nature, mentioning that it resonates with her in some way.

It seems that Fox's involvement in the role goes beyond voice acting. She stated that playing Nitara requires her to tap into areas of herself that she is not comfortable with, thus pushing her to be more free with herself. This method acting approach adds another layer of authenticity to the character.

The Mortal Kombat 1 trailer also showcases a new fatality move by Nitara. Instead of the traditional brutal killings, Nitara impales her opponent's stomach with her long fingernails, pulls out their entrails, and holds onto them like a rope as her bat wings lift her into the air. She then yanks the opponent up by their intestines before forcefully kicking them back down, causing their skin and meat to fall off, leaving only a shattered skeleton.

Fans of the Mortal Kombat series can look forward to playing as Nitara when the game releases on September 19 for PS5, Xbox Series X/S, Nintendo Switch, and PC. However, those who opt for the premium or collector's edition will gain early access on September 14.

Overall, the reintroduction of Nitara and Megan Fox's involvement in bringing the character to life add a fresh and exciting element to the highly anticipated Mortal Kombat reboot.
