Original Story - Shang Tsung is one of Mortal Kombat's original bad guys and it seems appropriate that he was added to Mortal Kombat 11 as part of the games Kombat Pack DLC.
That NetherRealm managed to get actor Cary-Hiroyuki Tagawa (from the Mortal Kombat film) to approve his likeness for the game makes his appearance all the more special.
His move set is also one of the more interesting additions to the game. Not only can he steal his opponent's moves, but he also has the powers of Rain, Ermac and Reptile in his kombos.
As always though, the best is saved for the fatalities, which are particularly gruesome.
The sorcerer is not the only DLC character added to MK11.
For the purpose of this page though, we're focusing on just Shang Tsung.
