American wrestling star and former UFC champion Ronda Rousey has officially been revealed as the voice behind Mortal Kombat 11’s Sonya Blade.

NetherRealm Studios made the announcement during their MK11 reveal event on January 17, with a behind-the-scenes segment that showed Rousey getting into character as one of the series’ mainstay female fighters.

Rousey admitted to being a longtime fan of the franchise, finding freedom in voice acting as opposed to being on camera.

“Sonya Blade was the first kickass girl I saw come onto the scene,” Rousey said of the role. “I’ve always admired her, and admittedly kind of emulated her in my own way. Now, I get to try to be her.”

Rousey was rumored to be part of the upcoming title after an alleged internal email from NetherRealm leaked onto Reddit, which claimed that the fighter would take part in the on-stage presentation.

Rousey appeared to confirm these rumors after posting her invitation to the event on Instagram on January 15. Now, it appears that the wrestler is part of the game, itself, which is set to officially release on April 23, 2019.

NRS’s MK11 reveal event was chock full of gory goodness for both casual and hardcore fans alike; complete with a tattoo parlor, art exhibit, and a nail-biting series of exhibition matches, the reveal even saw the appearances of other wrestling pros like Xavier Woods, Zelina Vega, and former WWE fighter Cody Rhodes.

The event likewise revealed a slew of upcoming characters for the game, including the likes of Baraka, Skarlet, and newcomer Geras, whose time-controlling abilities introduce an entirely new take on the classic fighting game franchise.

Fans can pre-order the title right now to cop Shao Kahn, the game’s titular, insult-slinging antagonist.

Some of the rarest skins in Apex Legends are making a return for the annual Black Friday sale, including Wraith’s famous Airship Assassin skin, cosmetics returning from Legendary Hunt bundles, and more.

It was heavily speculated in the runup to Thanksgiving week that Wraith’s fan-favorite skin would be returning for the second year in a row, and the shop update on November 24 confirmed those leaks and rumors.

Wraith isn’t the only hero getting some of her old skins up for sale again though, Octane’s highly sought-after Jester look will also be back, along with several from the Legendary Hunt themed event all the way back from Season 1.
