Sindel and Shao Kahn Revealed for Mortal Kombat 1

Sindel and Shao Kahn Revealed for Mortal Kombat 1

For a long time, the Mortal Kombat franchise has had Shao Kahn as one of the main villains of the games, and he’s had his appearances throughout the course of the different entries. With Liu Kang resetting the timeline though, it looks like ‘General Shao’ will have a different role in the upcoming MK1.

Check out the new Mortal Kombat 1 trailer which reveals the rulers of Outworld:

With Shao Kahn being demoted to a general, we can now see that the ruler of Outworld has become his wife Sindel. While a lot of people are familiar with how chaotic Outworld was when Shao was running it, it’s going to be interesting to see just how the realm flourished with Sindel on the throne.

Besides Shao and Sindel, the game has also revealed Motaro the centaur, a classic character that was introduced way back in Mortal Kombat III. Though he doesn’t seem to be a playable character, he does show off a lot of his powers from the original game including his teleport ability as well as his tail projectiles.

Raiden (or at least, human Raiden) also gets a chance to shine in the trailer, and his rivalry with Shao is put in the spotlight. Though Raiden has been the ‘mentor’ character of Mortal Kombat for decades, the fact that Liu Kang is now the new protector of Earth Realm means that it’s his turn to show the way for a Raiden reborn.

Though all seems good for a rebooted timeline, I am interested to see just how the conflict will manage to come up once again in new and unexpected ways.

Watch out for Mortal Kombat 1 when it launches on PC, Nintendo Switch, Xbox Series X|S, and PS5 on Sept. 19.
