Last week, NetherRealm Studios officially announced that Nightwolf, Mortal Kombat 11's second DLC character, will release in early access on August 13. This information was revealed by way of a Mortal Kombat 11 Nightwolf gameplay trailer, which also gave fans a look at the forthcoming MK11 DLC character's Fatal Blow, Fatality, and more. Now, players can see much more of Nightwolf in preface of his release, as an extensive new video has just been shared.
This new Mortal Kombat 11 Nightwolf video comes from YouTuber MrAquaman who has been granted early access to the DLC fighter. Over the course of this 28-minute MK11 Nightwolf video, MrAquaman delves into a number of aspects of Nightwolf, including his abilities, tournament variations, gear, and more.
The video begins with a look at all of Nightwolf's abilities, which include several projectiles and multiple summons. Additionally, the video highlights Nightwolf's two tournament variations, which competitive players will certainly be interested in seeing.
The first of these Nightwolf tournament variations is called Matoka Warrior, and it features two abilities: Rising Tomahawk, which launches an opponent into the air, and Spirit of Kiba, which is a summon that increases Nightwolf's damage. The other Nightwolf competitive variation is called Ancestral Gift, and it focuses around a grab called Tomahawk Swing, an extensions to some combos called Grappling Stalker, and the character's legendary Reflector.
After showing off Nightwolf's abilities and variations, the video goes through his gear and skins. For those that are curious, Nightwolf's gear in Mortal Kombat 11 includes headdresses, gunstock war clubs, and his iconic tomahawks. With respect to his skins, there is quite an extensive range of options, which should mean that most players can find a Nightwolf skin in Mortal Kombat 11 that they love.
The video then dives into the nitty-gritty of Nightwolf's gameplay in Mortal Kombat 11, looking at his input commands, strings, and available frame data. For approximately 20 minutes, MrAquaman takes Nightwolf into the lab, and there is a staggering amount of information to be found here. While this demonstration may not be quite as good as getting firsthand experience with Nightwolf, it is about as close as players can expect to get prior to his release next week.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version in development.
