Mortal Kombat 11 Joker Gameplay, Fatality Revealed (VIDEO)
Mortal Kombat 11 already boasts a pretty expansive roster, but additional fighters have been steadily added over the course of the last several months. The likes of a glorious movie-accurate Shang Tsung, Native-American warrior Nightwolf, Arnold Schwarzenegger’s Terminator, and the series’ scream queen Sindel have graced the game so far, with two additional spots remaining for the game’s Kombat Pack DLC. The penultimate inclusion of DC’s Joker has now received a new gameplay trailer, showing off the crazed clown’s violent, comic-inspired moveset.
As revealed in the new footage, we see that the cackling trickster utilizes a largely prop-based set of attacks, featuring goofy weaponry like mechanical boxing gloves, explosive jack-in-the-boxes, and a projectile Batman puppet–in addition to a sickled cane for regular melee attacks. Things get especially violent with the showcase of his special attacks, in which the madman “puts a smile on the face” of his foes with a pair of knives. Finally, his Fatality is truly something special, as it begins as what appears to be a Friendship maneuver before Joker “surprises” with an exploding birthday cake and barrage of side-splitting gunfire. Check out the gameplay trailer below.
The showcase of this new Joker footage comes after significant teasing on the part of NetherRealm, with some dating back even before the character’s official reveal. This premiere also brings fans that much closer to the game’s next Kombat Pack fighter: the demonic superhero Spawn. While very little of the DLC has been shown off in the past, those familiar with the character may rest easy as the MK11 version is set to be voiced by Keith David from the hero’s original animated series.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for Nintendo Switch, PC, PlayStation 4, and Xbox One. Joker arrives on the Kombat Pack January 28th and as a standalone DLC on February 4th.
