Mortal Kombat 11 Players Discover MK3 Surprise

Mortal Kombat 11 Ultimate players on PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia have discovered a new Mortal Kombat 3 surprise, or, more specifically, a new Mortal Kombat Trilogy Easter egg. MK11 is brimming with Easter eggs to the point that even nearly two years later players are still discovering them. The latest involves Mortal Kombat Trilogy and the "secret" character, Aqua.

For those that don't know: Mortal Kombat Trilogy had a "secret" character dubbed Aqua, which, at the time, was simply a Scorpion palette swap but instead of a mask, Aqua wears a duckbill. And of course, there's lore attached to all of this. While the character is often referred to as a secret character of Mortal Kombat Trilogy, he's more technically a canceled character, or at least that's what the game's files suggest.

Unfortunately, NetherRealm Studios has done nothing with the character since, but it does look like they snuck an Easter egg in MK11 for the forgotten and aquatic ninja. In the game, whenever you select a dark blue Subzero skin with a hoodie and a belt, the character's mask turns yellow.

Now, there are some possible explanations for this, but none of them really add up. For now, this hasn't been confirmed as an Aqua Easter Egg, but it's unclear what else it could be.

At the moment of publishing, neither NetherRealm Studios nor WB Games have commented on this supposed Aqua Easter Egg. If this changes, we will be sure to update the story with whatever is provided.

Mortal Kombat 11 is available via the PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Xbox Series X, Xbox Series S, PC, Nintendo Switch, and Google Stadia. For more coverage on the game and all things Mortal Kombat click here or check out the relevant links below:
