Mortal Kombat 11's newest TV spot featured Kitana as the latest playable character. NetherRealm Studios partnered with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment to create an announcement video.

NetherRealm explained Kitana's background in a press release:

"The 10,000-year-old princess of Edenia grew up believing she was Shao Kahn’s biological daughter and served as one of his deadliest warriors," NetherRealm wrote in the release. "When Kitana learned the truth, she fought against Shao Kahn’s attempted conquest of Earthrealm, eventually dying in battle. After being resurrected as an evil revenant version of her former self, Kitana now rules the Netherrealm alongside revenant Liu Kang, dedicated to the destruction of all the realms."

NetherRealms has slowly revealed different characters on the roster as the release date draws closer. Cetrion was one of those reveals. Cetrion's kit revolves around changing the land and is heavily involved with nature. Her abilities include plants, rocks, but she will also be able to use water, lightning, and other elements to cause damage to her opponents. Cetrion's finisher shows her growing to a dramatic size and then firing down a giant beam that will reduce her opponent to a few body parts.
