Here are all of the main variations from Mortal Kombat 11's playable build and their wacky names

No offical vairation names yet, but we do get hints as to what each one does

Like what we saw with Mortal Kombat X, character variations are back in Mortal Kombat 11 as players are treated to three unique tastes for each of their favorite characters.

While keeping the characters in tact, each of their sub-themes grants them access to different tools therefore allowing players to a wider breadth for personal expression and style.

This could mean the difference between playing the character as a rush down or a zoning type. For instance, let's say Sonya has one variation wherein she has access to far-reaching projectiles, one that enhances her up close attacks and then perhaps one that favors her use of gadgets from the mid range.

We got to see seven characters during last week's MK11 reveal event, each with distinct load outs. Our very own Steven "Dreamking" Chavez was the lucky recipient of one of those fancy black envelope invitations, and so he was able to attend in person and get images showing all available variations along with some examples of what you can do with the characters' wardrobes.

You'll notice names such as "Boon's Main," "Frozen AF," and "Sonic Foxy," as NetherRealm Studios chose to put placeholder titles instead of showing us the finished products. As we understand it, these will not be the variation names come the game's release in April.

Though the names and character costumes are customizable, we do get to see are the thumbnail images depicting the special moves available for each variation. For example, Sub-Zero's shows him performing an ice wall technique as well as his new ice daggers projectile.
