NetherRealm Studios revealed a new trailer featuring fan-favourite Kitana, as well as D’Vorah. So, while last week we only saw Kitana through a small cameo in a cinematic, this week is dedicated to her.
Returning to the tournament wielding her iconic fans, Kitana also brings about a deadly skillset, featuring many of her previous moves. Watching the reveal trailer shows Kitana picked up some new moves, too, and they pack a punch (and kick!).
Kitana, the 10,000-year-old princess of Edenia, grew up believing she was Shao Kahn’s biological daughter and served as one of his deadliest warriors. When Kitana learned the truth, she fought against Shao Kahn’s attempted conquest of Earthrealm, eventually dying in battle. After being resurrected as an evil revenant version of her former self, Kitana now rules the Netherrealm alongside revenant Liu Kang, dedicated to the destruction of all the realms.
D’Vorah is one among many Kytinn, a swarm of sentient insects who share a hive mind. D’Vorah has served Shao Kahn, Kotal Kahn, and Shinnok, but her true allegiance is to the swarm. She lies, cheats, and backstabs so that when everyone else has died, the Kytinn hive will survive.
So while Kitana was the featured kombatant today, D’Vorah chimed in as well, and well, left me squeamish after watching her fatality. This go-around, D’Vorah spawns miniature insects that replace her in battle. This insect has it’s own moves, too!
