RAW Women’s Champion Ronda Rousey is rumored to voice Sonya Blade in The Mortal Kombat 11 Video Game that comes out on April 23rd for Microsoft Windows, Nintendo Switch, PlayStation 4 a& Xbox One.
The Nerd Mag reported on a Reddit leak for the game that has since been confirmed, according to their update. There will be a big MK11 reveal on Thursday, January 17th and word is that Rousey will be there for the livestream presentation on stage. The report also stated that there will be a short trailer released to introduce Rousey as the one who will be voicing Blade. It was noted that there will be a hype trailer to promote the full trailer release, which will confirm Rousey as Blade.
There is a new article by Michael Leri that was published on Friday on GameRevolution.com which reads the following:
Ronda Rousey Rumored As Mortal Kombat 11 Voice Actor
“Fighting games are often the victim of rampant rumor-mongering because of how easy it is to “leak” a wish list gussied up as a roster. However, some turn out to have a bit more weight than others. The recent Mortal Kombat 11 cover reveal may not seem like much but it lends credibility to the recent leaked email that talked about incoming gameplay features, the names of a few new characters, and how Ronda Rousey would voice Sonya Blade.
Ed Boon, co-creator of Mortal Kombat, recently tweeted out the official key art, which features Scorpion against a bright yellow background. But this isn’t the first time this image has floated across the internet. A batch of leaked emails came out in early December with the same cover art. Thus, while still unconfirmed by NetherRealm, everything in that email has garnered a bit more credence because of how it sits next to the official confirmed cover art. The email even shows the two parties discussing which version to go with.
Rousey’s inclusion is one of the bigger leaks from the email. The messages state that she will be at the Mortal Kombat 11 reveal event on January 17 to announce her role as Sonya Blade. Rousey, who starred as herself in 2016’s UFC 2, has talked about her love for games in the past and even stated how she would always play as Kitana.”
