NetherRealm Studios has recently unveiled an exciting new trailer for Mortal Kombat 1, and this time, it shines the spotlight on the character portrayed by none other than Megan Fox.
In this thrilling preview, Megan Fox takes on the role of Nitara, a character deeply rooted in the Mortal Kombat universe. Nitara is a vampiric character, and in the video, Fox delves into what drew her to this particular role, her experience voicing the character, and her long-standing affinity for the franchise.

The trailer also tantalizingly reveals that General Shao and Sindel will join the ranks of playable characters, further heightening anticipation for the game’s release.
