Transformers actress Megan Fox supplied her likeness and her voice for Nitara—a Mortal Kombat: Lethal Alliance vampiress reintroduced in NetherRealm Studios’ Mortal Kombat 1 reboot launched September 19—however followers can’t take it severely. Although NetherRealm blessed Nitara with incredible combos, none of them are spectacular sufficient to detract from what followers are calling needlessly lifeless voice appearing.
Nitara is undead, however she shouldn’t be boring. “It actually simply appears like [Fox is] studying off the paper with no effort in any respect,” TikTok gaming commentator Stoney Tha Nice stated in a recent video. “I’m simply saying, in the event you’re taking part in a blood-sucking vampire demon, it is best to most likely sound like one.”
Although it pains me to say this about my celeb crush and star of the 2000s’ all-time finest horror comedy, Jennifer’s Physique, Fox is usually disappointingly colorless in her MK1 dialogue. A few of her fight introduction lines particularly—“The blood spilled at this time received’t be mine,” “I’ll battle you to dying”—ought to encourage panic however as a substitute elicit gentle concern about her everlasting monotone, which some MK followers are evaluating to a different unpopular celeb voice efficiency: Ronda Rousey in MK11.
I’d remind everybody, although, that Mortal Kombat is just not finest identified for its subtlety. It’s a ridiculous combating recreation sequence with physics-defying evisceration and an incomprehensible sci-fi story—unintentionally horrible voice appearing solely enhances its camp, I believe.
However, irrespective of your ideas on how passionate a Megan Fox demon ought to sound, NeatherRealm introduced in Hunter x Hunter voice actress Cristina Vee Valenzuela to document Nitara’s screams, grunts, and different in-battle murmurings, she wrote on Twitter. Some issues are higher left to the professionals.
