What you need to know

  • Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest fighting game in the acclaimed franchise.
  • The Nightwolf character may be getting a Thunder skin from Killer Instinct.
  • Both are Native American warriors who have amazing moves.
  • You can purchase the game for $60 on Amazon.

Updated August 1, 2019: Nightwolf got a new gameplay trailer which shows off his moves.

Mortal Kombat 11 is the latest entry in the acclaimed fighting game franchise and quite possibly, one of the best. It continues the story of Mortal Kombat X and can be seen as the conclusion to the saga which has gone on for decades. Not only does the game feature a stellar campaign, but it also includes a number of features that should keep players coming back for more.

Recently, Mortal Kombat 11 Creative Director Ed Boon asked Xbox One owners if they would like Killer Instinct's Thunder skin for Nightwolf. Both of them are Native American warriors who have amazing fighting moves. Hopefully, this wasn't just said in jest, and a Thunder skin will be available for Nightwolf as soon as he joins the Mortal Kombat 11's roster.

We'll keep you posted as soon as we know more. Maybe an official announcement will occur soon because Xbox head Phil Spencer and the official Killer Instinct Twitter account acknowledged Boon's tweet.

In our review, we said, "Mortal Kombat 11 is a stellar fighting game and is one of the best ones ever made in my opinion. The depth and variety it offers are unparalleled, even by the likes of Injustice 2, another NetherRealm creation. There are so many characters to customize and master — with many more on the horizon — which should keep you enthralled for months to come."
