Ed Boon, the creative director of NetherRealm Studios' Mortal Kombat 11, has revealed the character model for Sindel, one of the upcoming fighters that'll be included in the game's season pass. Sindel is one of six characters included in the season pass, and one of three returning season pass fighters.
Sindel made her debut in Mortal Kombat 3, and is well-known for using her supersonic screams to cause her opponents to explode. She also happens to be the mother of Kitana, who's already available on the base roster in Mortal Kombat 11 alongside her companion Jade. Although Sindel's move set hasn't been revealed as of right now, fans can expect her iconic techniques to make a return, with some gory adjustments.
Boon took to Twitter to share the first Sindel image, which can be seen below this paragraph. While this is the first time we're seeing what Sindel will look like in-game, fans have known that she'll be apart of the DLC roster for some time. As of right now, Shang Tsung is the only DLC character available, so that still leaves players with Night Wolf, Sindel, Spawn, and two unannounced fighters, all of which have no release date. Todd McFarlane's Spawn is making an appearance as the first guest character in-game. Shao Kahn is also available as DLC, but was given away for free to anyone who pre-ordered Mortal Kombat 11. Unfortunately, he does otherwise need to be bought separately, and is not included with the season pass.
Many fans have speculated that actor Bruce Campbell's iconic horror hero Ash would be making his way into the game as the second guest character. Unfortunately, Campbell squashed those rumors but they've since risen from the dead so who really knows what's going to happen. Ash would certainly be a welcome addition with his chainsaw arm and boomstick included, and would probably mistake Sindel for a Deadite.
Some longtime players were relatively upset at the season pass' lack of fan favorites who didn't make the cut in the base game. Characters like Kenshin, Mileena, Ermac, and Reptile are notably missing from Mortal Kombat 11. A few of them do make tiny appearances in different parts of the game, but playing as each of them would be so much better. What makes these missing characters' absence sting a little more is the fact that the three newcomers, as well as some of the returning characters, aren't nearly as compelling as those that are absent. The one positive about their exclusion though is the fact that some less popular characters may get the chance to shine a bit more. For now, gamers will have to be content with the DLC roster they've been given, including Sindel and her deadly hair.
