In one of her most classic poses, the stern and relentless fighter directs and blows a kiss that will bring the fatality to whoever challenges her. With old tombs and skulls abandoned at her feet, the pedestal of an old cemetery terrain as seen in one of the game’s stages complement the athletic warrior with golden hair, wearing her classic green and white sportswear with details in black. With her look inspired by her original concept and Mortal Kombat III, Iron Studios present the statue of Sonya Blade, the general of the defending forces of Earthrealm.
Mortal Kombat is a tournament of martial arts that happens between different realms or dimensions from generation to generation and needs to be won 10 times in a row to guarantee the winner the chance to control the realm where the competition takes place. In the past, she was a soldier member of the OIA (Outer World Investigation Agency) Special Force unit on the series of fighting games Mortal Kombat, until she became commander of every Special Forces and Units operation. Debuting in the first Mortal Kombat arcade game, Sonya Blade is a tough and obstinate fighter, with many skills thanks to her training in the Special Forces. Iron Studios pay tribute to two of Mortal Kombat’s creators, the sound designer Dan Forden, better known for his photo and voice shouting “Toasty!” in falsetto on the right corner of the screen in some parts of the game (an inside joke between the members of the developing team), and the series’ head writer John Vogel, writing their names on the tombs in the pedestal with skulls, moss, and an old lamp.
