You gotta listen to the way people talk.
Fans had thought Arnie provided voice-acting for Mortal Kombat 11 after NetherRealm chief Ed Boon tweeted to say he couldn’t believe the developer had got Arnie in the game.
Part of me still can?t believe we got Arnold.

But it turns out it’s just his likeness that forms the basis of the T-800 that’s playable in Mortal Kombat 11. His dialogue will be provided by a sound-a-like – someone, I presume, who’s really good at doing an Arnie impression.
The news was first reported by The Hollywood Reporter, which said publisher Warner Bros. confirmed it.
It’s a shame real-life Arnie hasn’t provided voice work for virtual T-800, but the main thing is Mortal Kombat 11 has his likeness – and based on the reveal trailer, the game’s T-800 looks great.
