Megan Fox Revealed as Nitara for Mortal Kombat 1

Megan Fox Revealed as Nitara for Mortal Kombat 1

Every once in a while, the Mortal Kombat franchise will be able to bring in some popular celebrities to play characters. With MK 11 having cast Ronda Rousey as Sonya Blade, the sequel (or rather, reboot) has announced the game’s big celebrity that’s going to be playing a character.

Check out Megan Fox as Nitara:

After almost 17 years, the Vampire of Outworld has graced us with her presence. Megan Fox brings Nitara back to life.

Nitara was a character introduced way back during the 3D era of MK with Deadly Alliance. As the description reads, Nitara is a vampire, but unlike several characters who have their specific allegiances, Nitara is more of a self-serving entity in the game.

While they could have just cast anyone in the role of Nitara, it’s pretty great that they should nab Fox for the role. Though a lot of fans remember her best for being the leading lady of the early Transformers movies, Fox also has cult status with her role in Jennifer’s Body where she becomes a succubus that murders boys in high school.

Though we should always expect classics like Liu Kang, Sub-Zero, and Scorpion to appear in the game, it’s pretty great that characters from the 3D era of MK are now getting their chance to shine. Let’s hope that Fox’s Nitara becomes a fan-favorite for a new generation of gamers.

Watch out for Mortal Kombat 1 when the game launches for PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox One, Xbox Series X|S, and PlayStation 5 on Sept. 19.
