When Mortal Kombat 11 first revealed Joker's model in the game, it was an extremely brief look, but one that divided fans immediately. But slowly, over time, it would appear that NetherRealm Studios has won folks over as we've seen more of the character, and now that the gameplay trailer is actually out? Folks seem to actually, genuinely be loving the new character.
The new trailer shows off a whole slew of Joker's combat moves, including firing a gun out of the mouth of a Batman toy, and it is honestly fairly impressive overall. That doesn't even begin to touch on the goofy delight that is the featured Fatality. As someone that was previously on the fence about the upcoming DLC fighter, the trailer's gone a long way in convincing me to actually give him a shot. And it certainly sounds like I'm not alone.
