Mortal Kombat 11 Alternate Costumes for Raiden, Erron Black, Cetrion, and Shao Kahn Revealed

Mortal Kombat 11 Alternate Costumes for Raiden, Erron Black, Cetrion, and Shao Kahn Revealed

NeatherRealm has unveiled alternate costumes for four Mortal Kombat 11 characters just a few days before launch.

As we approach the launch of Mortal Kombat 11, player are starting to think about how they will individually customize their characters. The Custom Character Variation system gives a lot of leeway in terms of gameplay, even in the competitive scene, but what’s even cooler are the unique alternate costumes at players’ disposal. Today, NeatherRealm Lead Character Artist Brendan George took to PlayStation Blog to unveil some of these new costumes.

The first skin he showed off, which you can check out below, is an alternate skin for Erron Black. In general, Arron Black has an outlaw aesthetic, and this armored skin brings him a bit closer to how Ned Kelly, a famous Australian outlaw looked. It is a personal favorite of Brendan’s.

Next up was Shao Kahn, who the team decided to make a “far past” look for. This costume is meant to reflect how Shao Kahn looked when leading armies and ended up being quite intimidating. You can check out this alternate costume for this pre-order bonus character below:

The Raiden look the post then shows off is based on the character’s Mortal Kombat 2 look, though it has a different color scheme. It’s a fairly straightforward costume, but a good looking one nonetheless.

Finally, an alternate look for Cetrion, a brand new Mortal Kombat 11 character, was revealed. This “dark Cetrion” skin is much less natural looking than her normal design, and Brendan George says that’s supposed to reflect the “dual role mother nature must play to ensure balance.”

All four designs look pretty sweet, and give us a better idea of what we can expect the bar of quality to be on alternate costumes. Mortal Kombat 11 is poised to launch for PC, PS4, Xbox One, and Nintendo Switch on April 23, and is available to pre-order on Amazon.
