Netherrealm Studios have finally given Mortal Kombat fans an insight into how Sindel will play in Mortal Kombat 11. Sindel will be the fourth Kombatant to be added to the game from the Kombat Pack. With Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, and Terminator T-800 all being welcome additions to the game’s roster, Sindel’s arrival has been highly anticipated by fans.
Who is Mortal Kombat’s Sindel?
Never heard of Sindel? She’s more important in Mortal Kombat’s lore than you might think. Originally, Sindel is both Shao Khan’s wife and Kitana’s mother. In Mortal Kombat 11, these two characters feature prominently throughout the game’s time-traveling plotline. The 2011 series reboot, however, alters this by having Quan Chi as the character who resurrects her from death. She is then seen as a revenant in Mortal Kombat X, much like Kung Lao and Liu Kang are seen early in the Mortal Kombat 11 story.

In previous Mortal Kombat titles, Sindel is one of a select few characters who utilize levitation in both their movements and attacks. She is also shown to have a supernatural scream, often linked to that of a banshee, which stuns opponents.
First Impressions of Sindel in Mortal Kombat 11?
The gameplay trailer showcases a whole host of exciting attacks and abilities. She uses her hair in a series of grabs and flips. Adding to this, it appears many of her basic attacks include the use of a spear. This gives Sindel quite a bit of range as a fighter, which will undoubtedly prove problematic for Kombatants such as Sonya Blade and Jacqui Briggs to combat. Still, heroes adept at zone-ing like Skarlet and Erron Black may prove better counter-picks. The fatality shown at the end shows her screaming the skin off of her opponent. Lovely.
