So graceful, so beautiful, so deadly
It does not get much better than when a fighting game fan participates in creating one of their favorite characters, and that's what we have here with Kitana and the developer of NetherRealm Studios , Steve "16-bit" Brownback in Mortal Kombat 11.
During today 's Kombat, Steve was able to show the Edenic princess and we have put together a series of clips for an accelerated distribution so that you can get an idea of how she is playing here in this last iteration. .
One of the very first things that Steve points out is the fact that Kitana's normals have been completely redone, mainly because she almost always holds her distinctive fans.
He also notes that while she retains some of her classic MK moves, such as fan throwing and levitation, she also brings five or six new techniques to keep things fresh.
One of the first things we noticed during her unveiling is that she seems to be the most beautifully designed character of the game up to now (which says a lot about something). We are lucky to see it in regular or modified form, and we can only imagine where things are going with custom costumes.
Kitana is particularly graceful in her movement, almost memorizing chains of attacks. The problem is that they are quite difficult to hit, so players should be sure to land or risk being punished:

Fan Toss and Fan Lift are back, but they come with a new throat slot technique that can result in an overwhelming blow:
In the air, Kitana blocks his enemy or flickers to keep everything confused:
Projectile wars are not discouraged against her as she can absorb fireballs and get instant bonuses for all her fan attacks:
Edenian Razors is a technique that allows her fans to fly around her, securing the ropes and allowing new corner combos:
Finally, we see Kitana release the sai trademark that his sister Mileena usually uses. She can throw it in the air and then has some options from then on to inflict damage:
