Megan Fox was given the voice-acting role of a vampiric outworld character called Nitara in Mortal Kombat 1, and Megan Fox has expressed great pleasure in taking on this role. However, there are many fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise who have criticized the fact that the creators have used a Hollywood actress instead of, in their opinion, a better option of a well-known voice actress, but it turns out that the voice actor in question did still have a part to play with regards to this character’s voice.

Why is there such an uproar about Megan Fox and her role in Mortal Kombat 1? Many fans of the Mortal Kombat franchise are up in arms because they believe a more qualified voice actress should have had the part of Nitara instead of a Hollywood actress. It turns out that Megan Fox will not be the only voice you hear when Nitara talks in the game, as Megan Fox and her voice were not enough, so in parts, there will be another voice playing the same part. The second voice you will hear is the voice of Cristina Valenzuela.
Cristina Valenzuela is a voice actress who has been in many anime roles such as Velvet Crowe from Tales of Berseria, Darkness from KonoSuba, and Helluva Boss, so it is fair to say Cristina Valenzuela has an impressive résumé, so you can see why many fans are less than happy. Cristina Valenzuela took to the social network X to announce that she will be working along with Megan Fox, be it battle grunts and groans in Mortal Kombat 1. Cristina Valenzuela says it’s exciting working on this project.
