Jade Makes a Stunning Return in Mortal Kombat 11

NetherRealm Studios today confirmed that the fan-favorite female ninja is returning for Mortal Kombat 11.

Killed off in Mortal Kombat 2011, fans have long speculated what had happened to Jade. She didn’t appear in Mortal Kombat X as a revenant, and her 2011 ending teased another fate. Finally, we’re getting answers in Mortal Kombat 11.

During the weekly Kombat Kast, NetherRealm Studios confirmed that Jade is indeed returning. Though not confirmed in the trailer, it’s likely that she was resurrected by Kronika and serves her now. At least, it is what the developers hinted at when we spoke to them last month. In-game, Jade makes ample use of her staff to inflict heavy damage. She also makes use of magic to teleport around the battlefield and negate damage for a limited time. She also appears quite handy with a knife.

Mortal Kombat 11 is out April 23 on PS4, Xbox One, PC, and Switch.
