- Mortal Kombat 11s new DLC features the Joker from DC comics.
- A trailer for the DLC just dropped, showing off Jokers moves as well as his fatality.
- This new fatality has a great callback to the early days of the series, and it might be the best one ever.
Mortal Kombat 11 is about to get some seriously great DLC. For the first time since Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, youll be able to play as the Joker.
The new trailer just dropped today, showing off the Jokers hilarious move set. Its impressive from start to finish, but by far, the best part of the entire video is the ending.
After clips of the Joker taking on numerous MK11 opponents, he finishes it off with a fatality. And that fatality is one of the best weve seen in a long time.
Watch Jokers MK11 Fatality in All Its Gory Glory
During the fatality, Joker hands his opponent a suspiciously-decorated cake. As the hapless enemy stands holding it, a sign drops down.
It says friendship, spelled out in balloons:

Just when you think Batmans nemesis might have finally made a friend, the cake explodes, ripping off the enemys arms and launching him or her into the air.
Joker then whips out a Tommy gun and fills them full of holes. This bursts the ballons, revealing the word fatality written in blood.
It has a lot in common with classic Mortal Kombat fatality sequences. Cassie Cages bubblegum fatality from Mortal Kombat X springs to mind.

Gruesome, yes, but hilarious and silly too. It brings the same sort of energy as Jokers fatality, but without his style or an amazing series callback that hearkens back to the days of Mortal Kombats origins.
Joker DLC Includes Epic Mortal Kombat Callback
Longtime fans will remember that friendships are an old series staple.
When Mortal Kombat 1 came out, its violence and gore triggered a moralistic panic. In response, the developers hilariously added the option to end a match by making friends with your opponent instead of ripping them limb-from-limb.
Friendships had been missing from the series since Mortal Kombat 4. And fans couldnt be happier that theyre finally back.
This really does give us Joker at his best. Utter mayhem, peppered with his trademark twisted sense of humor. DLC packages often underwhelm, but this one looks like its worth every penny.
