NetherRealm’s upcoming Mortal Kombat 1 reboot continues assembling its star-studded roster by recruiting actress Megan Fox as vampire vixen Nitara. Fox shared her excitement at voicing the antiheroic fighter in a new trailer spotlighting Nitara’s return.

Fox joins contemporaries like Tony Todd and Matthew Mercer in voicing the series’ violent icons. Her genre credentials as a fixture in the Transformers and Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles franchises make the casting a natural fit.

And she enthusiastically embraces the opportunity, declaring Mortal Kombat one of gaming’s greatest series in the reveal. Fox also professed love for Princess Kitana previously, making her fighting game involvement feel like manifest destiny.

Some predicted Fox was involved from earlier leaked teasers hinting at celebrity cameos. But her official arrival as forgotten fighter Nitara still surprised fans.

Recently Shao Khan, Motaro, Shujinko and Queen Sindel were revealed as new characters and the villains are now joined by another they can add to their rank.

Remixed Backstory Hints at Full Villain Role

Creative liberties seem taken remixing Nitara’s vague antihero motivations, with story snippets suggesting full villain status here. Her demonic armor also gets a foreboding upgrade befitting the darker tone.

Regardless of narrative changes, Nitara’s return satiates fans awaiting her homecoming after years absent. And Fox’s star power makes the revived role instantly iconic. Even obscure picks become spectacles with the right talent attached.

The gameplay footage from the trailer showcases her Arial abilities and obviously throws in a couple of fatalities in the mix for good measure. Megan Fox isn’t the only celebrity to get in on the act either, as WWE wrestler and actor Dave Bautista narrated a TV Spot for the fighting title.

Soon Fox’s Nitara spreads her wings alongside other franchise first-timers when MK1 launches on consoles and PC. Liu Kang’s new world order remains largely mysterious, but its warrior ranks continue expanding impressively.

Mortal Kombat 1 launches on September 19th for Windows PC, PS5, Switch, and Xbox Series X/S.
