Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon has teased a series of skins based on actors from the 1995 Mortal Kombat movie for Mortal Kombat 11.
You can see three polaroids in the embedded tweet from Boon below, showing off alternate costumes for Raiden, Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade. If you’ve seen the 1995 movie, you’ll recognize these skins as they’re using the likeness of Christopher Lambert’s Raiden, Linden Ashby’s Johnny Cage, and Bridgette Wilson’s Sonya Blade.

It’s not clear when these new skins will arrive in-game, but it’s a nice touch for fans of the cult classic movie, directed by Paul W. S. Anderson of 2002’s Resident Evil and the upcoming Monster Hunter movie. A Reddit leak from a few months ago teased that the aforementioned actors may return to lend their voice to the game, suggesting a fully-fledged Mortal Kombat movie pack is on the way.
Back in October, Mortal Kombat 11 added Rambo as DLC and revealed that the game was coming to the PS5 and Xbox Series X and S. We reviewed Mortal Kombat 11 upon release, scoring it a 9 and calling it “the best game in the 27-year-old series.”
