1 / 9
In 1995, Mortal Kombat was filmed and actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa became Shang Tsung. Now he is back to lend his voice and likeness

Intro and Victory Dialogue use quotes from the film, "And now a taste of things to come," and "Your soul is mine!"
3 / 9
The sorcerer brings back his old moves of flaming skulls and his iconic snake fighting style
4 / 9
Shang Tsung can also morph briefly into the four pallet-swapping ninjas to use their special moves: Smoke, Reptile, Ermac and Rain.
5 / 9
As expected, he can steal an opponent's soul to become that character for six seconds.
6 / 9
Shang Tsung's fatality is similar to MK2, where he tosses a soul into his poignant, and Kintaro bursts forth in all his rage
