The Mortal Kombat 11 roster continues to expand.

NetherRealm Studios has announced two additional fighters for Mortal Kombat 11: Noob Saibot and Shang Tsung.

Noob Saibot’s first appearance was in Mortal Kombat 2 as a secret, unplayable character. He returned as playable in Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 and again as a secret character in Mortal Kombat 4.

Formerly known as Bi-Han, he is the original Sub-Zero and made his debut as the latter in arcade version of Mortal Kombat.

Along with Noon Saibot, NetherRealm also announced Shang Tsung as the first DLC character.

Actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa, who played the character in the 1995 Mortal Kombat film, will lend his likeness and voice to the character.

Both characters were revealed during a panel at Chicago Comic & Entertainment Expo on March 22. The reveal trailer for Tsung was captured by lzuniy and we’ve embedded it below.
