NetherRealm Studios revealed the full roster of its first Kombat Pack this week for Mortal Kombat 11, the latest and greatest installment in the inconic fighting video game franchise. Said reveal confirmed Spawn, Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator T-800, and DC Comics' classic Batman villain Joker. While folks seem generally excited for the upcoming DLC, the design for the game's Joker has taken a rather severe beating on social media.
The Joker, which you can check out in the video embedded above, does look a little... rough around the edges compared to the other designs. There's something oddly rough about him, and especially his face. It's kind of like if you'd taken a Sim from The Sims and dressed them like the Joker. It's too plastic, basically. And people have noticed, and are ravaging it online.
Joker will be VICIOUS ! https://t.co/i37cgn2BrF— Ed Boon (@noobde) August 22, 2019
The Terminator is set to release October 8th, followed by the previously teased Sindel on November 26th. Joker and Spawn are set to arrive in the new year on January 28th and March 17th, respectively. There should be more information released about the various characters in the coming weeks.
