Haute Cosplay's Shang Tsung can steal our souls any day; check out the amazing work of this cosplaying duo in their Mortal Kombat 11 best

The wife and husband cosplay team of Isabelle "Haute_Cosplay" Scott and Yusuf Daza is a match clearly made in heaven, (perhaps "the Netherrealm" is more apt considering the characters) as both have worked together to pull of some stunning Mortal Kombat 11-inspired looks.

We actually saw these two in video action a few days ago, but now we've rounded up a beautiful gallery as these two show off their best Noob, (technically without Saibot) gender-bender Shang Tsung, and Skarlet.

Someone put a gender-bender face swap filter on the Mortal Kombat 11 characters and you're not ready for Baraka

Life can't all be fun and games, and sometimes you have to ask the important questions like, "What would Shang Tsung look like as a woman?" Thanks to SHAAR and the relatively new FaceTime filter, now we know.

We're simultaneously excited and sorry to bring you this. When we first came across it there was definitely a hesitant "not all things are meant to be face-swapped" kind of feeling in our gut, (probably like the one you're feeling now). There was also a very real "we have to see, though" feeling in our hearts (probably like the one you're feeling now).

'Too bad you...will die' visual history of Sindel shows us how the scream queen has evolved over the last 24 years

It was 24 years ago in 1995 that we caught our first glimpse of Sindel, the Edenian queen with looks and a voice that could kill... as in she literally killed people with her hair and her scream.

Since the Mortal Kombat fanbase is currently awaiting Shao Kahn's reluctant bride as a new DLC character in Mortal Kombat 11, we thought we'd help pass the time with a visual history gallery so we can see how she's evolved since Mortal Kombat 3.

When will the next Mortal Kombat 11 DLC character launch? A look back over NetherRealm's previous practices may give us a pattern to follow

We've caught glimpses of both Nightwolf and Sindel as they'll appear in Mortal Kombat 11, but the game's fanbase still doesn't know who will be following Shang Tsung on the DLC roster and when they'll be dropping.

Rooflemonger has done a bit of research concerning NetherRealm Studios' previous DLC practices as they moved through similar motions back in the days of both Mortal Kombat X and Injustice 2. In his findings, we see something of a pattern emerge especially when it comes to the more recent Injustice 2.

The upcoming Mortal Kombat movie will be R-rated and feature Fatalities

The upcoming Mortal Kombat movie is gearing up to bring the extreme, gory violence the video game series is known for to the big screen. Not only will the film be rated R, but it will also feature Fatalities.

Writer Greg Russo said as much yesterday on Twitter, letting fans know that they can look forward to seeing Mortal Kombat's classic finishing moves for the first time ever in a Mortal Kombat film.

Dragon Quest's Hero needs to hurry up if he wants to be legal for EVO 2019, the major's new update deadline has been announced for next week

I'm not sure where 2019's gone off to, but somehow we're already less than one month away from the start of another EVO major where developers are now running out of time to get new content or fixes into their game before the deadline.

Joey "Mr. Wizard" Cuellar took to Twitter today to announce that the cut off date is less than a week from now, so any new DLC characters like Dragon Quest's Hero in Super Smash Bros. Ultimate or Sindel / Nightwolf have little time left to come out if they want to have a chance at showing up on the main stage.

Ed Boon releases new Nightwolf character render for Mortal Kombat 11

We've known for some time now that Nightwolf would be among the DLC characters coming to Mortal Kombat 11's first Kombat Pack though NetherRealm Studios had not shown off what the spiritual fighter will look like in-game... until now apparently.

Ed Boon has released what appears to be a character render showing off Nightwolf's head and face as he'll likely appear in Mortal Kombat 11 with the caption "Oh, you're sending the WOLF?"

Scorpion is becoming the most hated character in Mortal Kombat 11 for online players according to Rooflemonger

Mortal Kombat 11 has been developing in interesting ways since the title's release back in April. Although there are a number of top tiers that are succeeding for various reason, one character's ability to take advantage of the game's slower neutral game is apparently garnering some hate.

That character is Scorpion — someone who is often seen as the icon for the series these days. Rooflemonger has released a video detailing why Scorpion is both so strong and is developing this level of hate from players within the community.

Stay frosty boys: The new Mortal Kombat film has found its Sub-Zero in Fast & Furious and The Raid's Joe Taslim

Mortal Kombat's long-awaited return to the big screen is set to begin production starting later this year though it appears as though they've landed themselves their first lead actor role.

Joe Taslim has reportedly signed on to play the blue ninja Sub-Zero in the upcoming Mortal Kombat film, and if you've seen any of his previous action movies, you know he knows how to put up a fight.

Seventeen-year-old digital artist knocks our socks off with these otherworldly fighting game character depictions

We first caught sight of Mizuri's art because Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon was impressed enough by it to retweet with a caption deeming it "Next level Amazing." He wasn't wrong.

The 17-year-old digital artist from Melbourne is a self-taught fount of artistic skill. While they don't stick solely to fighting game characters, they have plenty of pieces depicting roster members from franchises like Marvel vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat, and Injustice.

Husband and wife pull off stunning Noob Saibot and gender-bender Shang Tsung Mortal Kombat 11 cosplays

We're looking into compiling a full gallery from the very talented Haute Cosplay and her husband Yusuf, but couldn't wait to share this pair of quick videos showcasing the couple's latest work.

It's very possible you may have recently seen an image or two of this near-perfect Mortal Kombat 11 Noob Saibot and/or hauntingly beautiful gender-bender Shang Tsung floating about social media. NetherRealm Studios Creative Director, Ed Boon, even shouted them out as "Ridiculously good. 🔥" via a retweet on his own account.

An enhanced view of Sindel in Mortal Kombat 11 shows off every available detail of the Edenian queen's latest look

We got our first official look at Sindel in Mortal Kombat 11 thanks to a post by Creative Director, Ed Boon, earlier today, and naturally the internet has begun analyzing this still image from every which way as we attempt to garner as much information as possible from it.

Both Rooflemonger and True Under Dawg Gaming have placed the fallen queen under the microscope (Photoshop enhancement) as they attempt to note and point out every little attribute, hoping each leads to a bigger picture view of the new kombatant.

First look at DLC character Sindel in Mortal Kombat 11 revealed

Mortal Kombat 11 is expecting five more DLC characters coming along with its Kombat Pack. We currently know the identities of three out of those five, but we have yet to see what they'll look like in-game.

That changes a bit this morning as Mortal Kombat series Co-Creator Ed Boon has given fans their first look at Sindel — one of the upcoming DLC characters.
