During their presentation at the Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo 2019, NetherRealm Studios officially revealed the newest fighter to the roster for Mortal Kombat 11, and it’s none other than Noob Saibot. The shadowy ninja makes a successful return after being absent in MKX, and with a totally new badass look to boot.
Noob’s fighting style is still very much the same since we first saw him in the mid 90’s, which is teleport, combo, teleport. However, he now has access to a sick hook sword that remind us of Malthael, the Angel of Death in the Diablo series. He also has the ability to throw a projectile and instantly teleport to wherever it lands. This kind of killer combo starter can be potentially devastating if his opponent isn’t ready to counter it.
Noob can send a shadowy version of himself to attack his opponent while he damages from afar, essentially making it a two on one fight for a brief moment. His Fatality may not be the flashiest, but it is arguably the goriest so far. Noob slices his opponent with his hook sword, disemboweling them in the process. He then sends his shadowy clone into the open stomach, where it emerges by ripping them in half from their head down.
Noob Saibot has definitely been a fan favorite since his inclusion way back in the day, and we are so excited to see his triumphant return to the series. Mortal Kombat 11 launches on April 23 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. You can check out Noob Saibots gameplay reveal here:
