During the Mortal Kombat 11 gameplay reveal that was live-streamed today, courtesy of Netherrealm Studios, it was revealed that world-renowned UCF fighter, Ronda Rousey, would be playing the role of Sonya Blade.
All of which is a long-winded way of saying, guest characters in Mortal Kombat haven't been around as long as you may imagine, and there probably haven't been as many as you think.
Regarding gameplay itself, Mortal Kombat 11 still takes place on a 2.5D plane, featuring one-on-one kombat between two bloodthirsty characters.
It will be available on Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 and Xbox One. Feel free to share your thoughts with us in the comments section, as usual.
Tonight's event is expected to reveal more characters - though how many more is up for debate. "But with Mortal Kombat, I didn't have to make anyone up".

Anyone who wants to jump on the update early can manually trigger an update in Windows 10 , but we'd suggest waiting this one out. After December 10th, any Windows 10 Mobile on the 1709 build will stop receiving any updates whether security related or not.
Notably, Sub Zero and Sonya Blade made it in.
Whilst we wouldn't normally believe anything without a large pinch of salt, this leak correctly predicted the cover art before Ed Boon was able to reveal it on Twitter. Ronda will be voicing Sonya in what looks to be an epic story mode and throughout the fights. It should give fans and first timers a concrete idea of what to expect on the Mortal Kombat 11 release date of April 23. She's the first female boss character to ever feature in a Mortal Kombat title, and she's going to bring order back to the universe however she sees fit. I'm not one to read into a winking emoticon typically, but it sure does seem suspicious in this case. We got a look at a chunk of the character roster, which includes newcomer Geras, and some of the new gameplay systems.
At the time of writing though, we can't find this demo rumour on Reddit and Gamerant haven't linked to it.
