Mortal Kombat 11 is due later this month and just before the release, we will get to see Shao Kahn in a detailed trailer as well. Shao Kahn was revealed as a pre-order bonus only character when the game was revealed last year, however, NetherRealm Studios has yet to launch a detailed trailer for the most-anticipated fighter coming to Mortal Kombat 11.
Fans have been reaching out to the developer on various platforms and recently, one of the fans reached out to the community manager of NetherRealm Studios in Mortal Kombat 11, Tyler Lansdown. Landsdown replied to the fan B13_HULK by saying that the reveal is planned for April 22nd which is the day before the title actually launches.
This confirms that a detailed trailer reveal for Shao Kahn is in the works and the developer has kept him for last for some unknown reason. We would love to see Shao Kahn in action and see how he managed to dish out some pain to his opponents. Shao Kahn is a limited pre-order only character at this moment and time is running out if you want to play as Shao Kahn when the game launches later this month.
April 22nd. Sounds good.

NetherRealm Studios has not yet revealed whether fans will be able to get access to Shao Kahn post-launch however he might arrive as a paid DLC character later or he might come back as a DLC character at all. If you want to add him to your roster, pre-order the game before it comes out and be on the safe side.
Earlier character reveals include Kitana, Cetrion, Liu Kang, Kung Lao, Jax, Noob, Shang Tsung, Kotal Kahn, Cassie Cage, Kano, Jade, Johny Cage, Kabal, and D’Vorah. NetherRealm Studios also discussed that female character design in Mortal Kombat 11 will be more mature and respectful. We also got to learn that Mortal Kombat 11’s main story will be 8 hours long.
Mortal Kombat 11 is releasing April 23, 2019, on PS4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC.
