Cetrion's design is based on the "dark side of Mother Earth." The image shown above shows a dark tone that was said to represent the destructive power of mother but not to the point as being seen as evil in nature. This is only part of Cetrion's multiple costumes. Mortal Kombat 11 is scheduled to launch on April 23 for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and PC. Stay tuned for more gaming news and updates.
