Tanya – Mortal Kombat X – VIDEO Demo
An entire month after Mortal Kombat X’s first DLC character (Jason Voorhees) was released, fans are finally able to play as Tanya, often considered “the yellow female ninja.” Tanya has been relatively scarce in MK canon, first appearing in MK4 (and its upgrade MK Gold) and then again alongside every kombatant in MK Armageddon. Perhaps we’ll see more of her in this new timeline; her story has already shifted considerably from her original time-line counterpart. In the original continuity she masqueraded as a refugee from Edenia-turned-Outworld, though worked secretly as an ally to Shinnok. It would then seem appropriate for her to pop up in MKX, yet now she is a key figure in the Outworld rebellion along with Mileena and Rain. Unlike a few other characters, neither her pre-match dialog nor her ending shed any particularly useful light on her role in these events.
So here it is, a preliminary demonstration of the all-new Tanya, in her Dragon Naginata variation. She was a fun character to play a few battles with and jumping on the naginata was especially cool, though without a projectile (at least in this variation) and a very difficult to land X-ray attack, I’d be hard-pressed go into “serious” battle with her. Stayed tuned and maybe we’ll check out her other variations as well!
