Hail to the queen. Long may she scream.
IGN premiered the gameplay trailer for the Edenian banshee herself, the purple-clad Sindel, earlier today. After being a non-playable character in Mortal Kombat X, Sindel is returning to Kombat proper for the first time since the 2011 reboot. The Edenian queen and mother to Kitana looks better than ever before, wielding her Kwan Dao and her wicked white hair to punish those who conspire against her.
Her fatality shown in the video is reminiscent of her Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 skinned-by-a-scream finisher, though this time around she uses her banshee howl to systematically dismember her fallen opponent limb from limb. An enhanced version of her basic screech even sees her walk towards her opponent while she screams, which is a nice addition to the iconic special move.
As has been the case since the game's release this past April, Kombat Pack holders will gain access to this DLC fighter, as well as a special Gothic Horror Skin Pack, one week before the general public. That early access begins Tuesday, November 26, and the packs become available to all the following Tuesday, December 3.
