NetherRealm Studios have finally given us a first look at Spawn in action in the latest Mortal Kombat 11 trailer.
It shows the Image Comics character tearing through his foes using all kinds of weaponry. As expected, Spawn seems to be packing everything from an arsenal of guns, swords and even his trusty axe. If all these weren’t enough, his cape not only makes him look cool but also serves as a weapon and protects him from damage.
Spawn will join the Mortal Kombat roster as part of the game’s next Kombat Pack, alongside the rest of the downloadable characters, like Sindel, Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Terminator and the Joker.
A recent blog post on the official PlayStation blog mentions that Jacqui Briggs will also be getting a Spawn-spired “Hellspawn” character skin, which we have to say looks truly impressive.
Knowing how loyal the comic book character’s fans are, NetherRealm spent a lot of time on getting Spawn just right, from the proportions of his chains to how is iconic cape functions. Everything was meticulously recreated for the game.
Spawn’s creator, Todd McFarlane, commented in an interview about how fans are able to play the character in a way that best suits their interpretation of Spawn. Whether it is guns blazing or maybe focusing on using his more mystic powers, fans will have various options open to them.
It’s great to see NetherRealm including more and more pop culture characters into the Mortal Kombat 11 universe. Which character would you like to see join the game’s roster?
