Nintendo might have just accidentally leaked the arrival of Nightwolf in Mortal Kombat 11.
We’re pretty sure that Nightwolf is going to be the next DLC character to arrive in Mortal Kombat 11. Ed Boon’s latest teaser video ended with the words “you’re next” after showcasing Nightwolf’s intro sequence. However, Boon remained silent on just when the Native American warrior would arrive to fight for Earthrealm.
Nintendo, on the other hand, seemed to have looser lips. A recent leak has given us an August release date for Nightwolf, with Kombat Pack owners getting access a week early.
The leak comes courtesy of Reddit user fishingfights, who was just browsing the Nintendo.com games store when they noticed a strange addition to the MK11 lineup. In addition to a pretty sweet sale being offered (25% off between July 23rd and August 6th, in case you were wondering) there was also a picture of Nightwolf and the note that he would arrive for Kombat Pack owners on August 13th.
So there you have it. Nightwolf should be arriving on August 13th, which is just over two weeks away.
As with Shang Tsung, expect Nightwolf to arrive for Kombat Pack owners a week early, which means he won’t be available for download to non-Kombat Pack owners until August 20th.
In addition to the release date, we also got a pretty good look at Nightwolf’s combat leathers, which includes a harness, shoulder guards, and metal bracers. Nintendo has since removed the leak from there website.
We know you guys have been dying to get a glimpse at Nightwolf for Mortal Kombat 11. So here's that glimpse.... pic.twitter.com/hi5BrvlO22— Ed Boon (@noobde) July 19, 2019
As for what we can expect from Nightwolf, his intro featured a hatchet getting struck by lightning, so his abilities are probably going to revolve around those two themes. Previous games also included a spirit-powered arrow attack, a reflect, and an absorb, so we could see those return for MK11.
Mortal Kombat fans seem excited to get their hands on Nightwolf, so news of his imminent arrival is bound to go over well.
