Megan Fox is taking her acting skills to the Outworld. Fox will voice the vampire Nitara in Mortal Kombat 1, NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. Games announced on Wednesday (Sept. 6).
“She comes from this weird realm. She’s a type of vampire creature,” Fox explains in a teaser for the game released Wednesday. “She’s evil but she’s also good. She’s trying to save her people.”
Nitara is described as a “manipulative vampire” who wants to separate her home from the Outworld, a fictional realm within the Mortal Kombat Universe. The character made its debut in the Mortal Kombat: Deadly Alliance video game released in 2002.
“I really like her, she’s a vampire, which resonates for whatever reason,” Fox adds with a laugh. “It’s cool to be in the game because I’m not really just voicing [the character], she’s kind of…me.”
The video game will be released on Sept. 19, via Playstation 5, Xbox Series X|S, Nintendo Switch and PC. Warner Bros.You can pre-order Mortal Kombat 1 online at Amazon below, click here to pre-order from Best Buy.
