While Mortal Kombat 11 has generally been well-received by fans, there are still existing nitpicks like Ronda Rousey's voice acting in Mortal Kombat 11. In the same vein, a new skin for Sub-Zero was recently added to Mortal Kombat 11 that gives him the appearance and voice acting performance of DJ Dimitri Vegas, the latter of which wasn't all too popular with the fans.
A recent Mortal Kombat 11 addition includes a skin for Sub-Zero that maintains the general appearance and color palette of the Sub-Zero fans know, minus the identical face to that of DJ Dimitri Vegas. Furthermore, it also contains a voice acting performance from DJ Dimitri Vegas that fans feel has left a lot to be desired.
While Sub-Zero's original voice acting performance in Mortal Kombat 11 was pretty solid, DJ Dimitri Vegas' take has many fans commenting on the performance. Many on Twitter took to posting clips of DJ Dimitri Vegas' performance simply to demonstrate its perceived bad quality.
While the original Sub-Zero comes off as gruff, jaded, and prepared for a fight, DJ Dimitri's Sub-Zero tends to lack these qualities. His performance also adds an element of awkwardness and it is very unintimidating in comparison with the original Sub-Zero's voice acting. Despite some being in the camp of the performance being so bad that it's good, others are simply unimpressed.
In order to give DJ Dimitri Vegas his due, he is not known to have done much voice acting work and isn't equipped with the necessary skills as such. Moreover, he is actually a celebrated modern DJ and even posted a remix of the Mortal Kombat theme on Twitter that his group made for Mortal Kombat 11's official launch trailer.
To celebrate my upcoming “Sub-Zero” playable character in #MortalKombat 11, we decided to release the music we did for the #MK11 trailer, along with a 🔥🔥🔥 clubmix! We’ve been fans of the game since forever... retweet if you’re too 🎮 pic.twitter.com/S7VQEVDiwF— Dimitri Vegas (@dimitrivegas) August 9, 2019
In reality, this complaint is relatively minor in comparison to the entire Mortal Kombat 11 experience. The game has earned positive marks for its polished fighting mechanics and impressive presentation. Moreover, it has been receiving other, more substantive additions in the form of new fighters. There are also still two upcoming fighters yet to be revealed for Mortal Kombat 11. There has been much speculation as to who those fighters might be, but hopefully, Mortal Kombat fans will know soon enough.
Mortal Kombat 11 is currently available on Xbox One, PlayStation 4, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
