Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon's latest Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath tease has Mortal Kombat fans abuzz with speculation. The game -- which is available to play on PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PC, and Nintendo Switch -- has seen a steady stream of new characters added via downloadable content, including cross-franchise appearances from RoboCop, Spawn, The Terminator, and the Joker. Boon enjoys interacting fans on Twitter, sometimes trolling and sometimes revealing actual "klues" about upcoming content, and not always clarifying which. Boon's latest tease came with a definitive hashtag, which now has the entire Mortal Kombat fanbase speculating over what's next for the violent fantasy fighting game.
The tease begins with a YouTube link Bohemian Rhapsody by Queen, and is then continued in a follow-up tweet that highlights the following lyrics: "Open your eyes.. look up to the skies and see." What does this mean? Well, that's the million-dollar question, but as Boon notes, this is an actual clue of what's coming to the game.
Below, you can check out the pair of teases for yourself:

Unfortunately, this teaser is vague enough it could be a lot of things, that said, it's presumably about an upcoming DLC character. But who could it be? Well, the most popular theories at the moment are throwing around names like Reptile, Rain, Ermac, and a Suicide Squad guest character, which would almost certainly be Harley Quinn. That said, right now, the links are pretty weak.
Okay it can be too many things.— thethiny 🐰 (@thethiny) September 19, 2020
Reptile: look to la Luna
Rain: Falls from sky
Ermac: also fell from the sky lol
Suicide Squad: queen song used in trailer (unlikely).
It's worth pointing out this could be not related to a DLC character at all, but something more minor like a skin or a stage. However, it seems unlikely Boon would go out of his way to tease something so inconsequential.
In the first tweet, Boon suggests there will be more teases in the future with his usage of "ActualKlue#1," however, you'd assume any future teaser will be equally cryptic.
