Shang Tsung returns and his shape shifting!
The new Mortal Kombat game is about to be on shelves for everyone to pickup just next week. If your not excited then maybe this trailer form NetherRealm Studios will help. It details the story of Shang Tsung.
If you do not remember him or unfamiliar with the title, Shang Tsung is a deceptive wizard who’s role throughout the Mortal Kombat series has been to do whatever is necessary to ensure Outworld’s victory in the tournaments. This deadly wizard consumes the souls of his opponents after victory! This is how he retains his youth and life force, as well as bestowing the fallen opponent’s thoughts and memories to him.
The video depicts his arrival to Outworld, and how he became subservient to Shao Kahn. It also shows some of his moves, and the most notable of these is the return of the shape shifting abilities. In the past games, Shang Tsung’s doppelganger moves were left out due to a lack of memory, but it seems that is no longer an issue.
Mortal Kombat scheduled to hit shelves April 19 in the US and April 21 in the UK.
