Noob Saibot Returns to Mortal Kombat 11

Noob Saibot Returns to Mortal Kombat 11

 Later this month Mortal Kombat will return for the 11th installment of this highly popular brutal fighting game. Mortal Kombat is a game where mortals, sorceress, and ninjas with powers dual out in a fight to the death. Throughout this franchise the opponents you would have to face as the player would be brutal. And no one defines brutality more than Noob Saibot, who is returning for the first time to the game since 2011. 

Noob Saibot was not this cold blooded assassin’s first name. He once went by a very familiar name that comes up when talking about a deadly clan known as the Lin Kuei. He was named Bi-Han more known as the ice cold original Sub-Zero. Bi-Han became Noob when he had faced the resurrected spirit of vengeance known as Scorpion rival assassin from the Shirai Ryu clan. He was killed by Scorpion and was resurrected by the sorcerer Quan Chi. After being revived Noob Saibot was born and Sub-Zero was officially dead.

As Noob Saibot, he was given control of a shadowy spirit to control and use in combat. His brutality he uses within his combos would allow him to break his opponents bones causing them tremendous amounts of pain. As a ninja he fights using the fighting styles hapkido and pi gua. With these techniques and a high level of creativity Noob can produce limitless barrages of attacks using his shadow powers to control his opponents. He often will create a shadow image of himself to fight alongside.

Noob Saibot has not appeared in Mortal Kombat games as a playable character since Mortal Kombat 9 made by Netherrealm Studios. However, now with the reveal of Mortal Kombat 11 and his new trailer it clearly shows that Noob Saibot is tired of waiting to fight. Mortal Kombat originated in October of 1992 and has since spawned multiple games, movies, and more.
