D’vorah, or bug lady as I like to call her, is one of the characters introduced in Mortal Kombat X that will be returning for the upcoming sequel. In an interview with Game Informer, senior NetherRealm QA analyst Steve Brownback talked about some of the characters new moves that will be featured in Mortal Kombat 11.
As usual, returning characters from previous titles receive some additions to their kit in order to stay fresh for the new game. And as part of Game Informer’s exclusive coverage, details have been shared about D’Vorah’s new moves in the upcoming title. D’Vorah's default moveset should feel familiar to Mortal Kombat X players. Her Ovipositor Rush and Bug Blast attacks are still here with the addition of a few upgrades.
“Her ovipositors are always out this time, whereas in Mortal Kombat X they only came out for moves,” Brownback said. “So she uses them more than ever.”
Once you start looking deeper into her variations though, things start to get really cool. “[She has] moves that weren't even close to Mortal Kombat X moves," Brownback states. A few of these new moves give her some cool options in combat which include launching a slow-moving insect across the screen and amplifying it to launch two of them simultaneously. You can also get her to actually use her wings to fly around and drop a bug-bomb from above.
Brownback also revealed a brand new mechanic that she has at her disposal. He said: “She has this new mechanic where she actually attaches insects to you, and they'll float around you, and then she can have them bite you when she chooses.” Reportedly, the opponent can’t shake these off, and she can stack several of them at a time and order them all to bite for some heavy damage.
She also has a nasty ability that helps her prolong fights. Brownback explains: "There's an ability you can equip where, when she dies, one of her babies comes out of her, and you control the baby. It has its own moveset, and then [your opponent has] to kill the baby to actually kill her." This move reportedly takes up two of the three slots you can use to equip moves, but it also provides a big advantage.
The changes emphasize D’Vorah’s insect side, both mechanically and aesthetically so get ready for a lot of bugs. If you haven't already, check out the the latestet additiont to the MK11 roster, Kollector, and for more on Mortal Kombat 11 stay tuned to GameBuz.
