NetherRealm Studios may have its own DC Universe-inspired brawler in the form of Injustice 2, but that’s not stopping Batman’s arch-nemesis the Joker from popping up in Mortal Kombat 11. Due out on 28th January in Early Access and 4th February for everyone else, the maniacal clown is at his brutal best, as he cracks skulls with his staff and uses explosive decoys to detonate his adversaries.

As you’d expect from the villain, there’s a sadistic silliness to his attacks, which are exemplified by his fatality. While we’ll refrain from spoiling it too much if you really don’t want to know, he feigns friendship before ripping his prey to smithereens – it’s really good fun. Will you be finishing him later this month? Fight in the comments section below.
