The Klown Prince of Krime
While the Game Awards last night was a time for major reveals and announcements, there were of course some smaller ones as well. Namely our first look at the Mortal Kombat 11 Joker DLC coming next month. We have known about the Joker since the Kombat Pack was first revealed, and even before that when the DLC character files were datamined. I would say this is the first time we’ve seen Joker in Mortal Kombat, but that wouldn’t exactly be true. He was in the Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe crossover, the Injustice games, and now Mortal Kombat 11.
At the Game Awards, an ad for Mortal Kombat 11 played, but at the tail-end we saw Joker’s introduction. He prances around in his purple suit with his cane and is confronted by Cassie Cage in her Harley Quinn outfit. He comments on her appearance and after a brief exchange, the teaser ends. With only about 20 seconds of footage, we do not really see him in action. That will no doubt come at a later date. Other than Scorpion, Joker is the only character to appear in the MK/DC crossover, Injustice, and a Mortal Kombat main-series game.
When the Bat’s away, Joker’s goin’ to play. See you soon kiddos!
