Just when we thought we had a pretty good idea of which characters might be en route to Mortal Kombat 11, a whole new potential twist emerges.

Enter Hideki Kamiya, the Director of Bayonetta and Writer/Supervisor behind Bayonetta 2. Kamiya recently took to Twitter for a very short, but very impactful statement concerning the titular character from the aforementioned franchise and Mortal Kombat... you can see where this is going.

Kamiya tweeted early Tuesday morning a simple "Mortal Kombat × Bayonetta," simultaneously piquing fan interest and leaving them to speculate whether this is a sudden announcement, cruel tease or a mere "hey, you know what might be cool?" thinking out loud type of sentiment concerning Mortal Kombat 11.

While Bayo is already a quite popular part of the Super Smash Bros. Ultimate (and Smash 4 before it) roster, the time-bending witch actually fits the bill quite nicely for an MK guest appearance in more ways than one.

First off, she already hails from a mature game that's filled to the brim with plenty of violence and sexuality, so there wouldn't be much in the way of culture shock should she find herself amongst the brutal battles of a Kombat title.

It's also the right time for some good old fashioned cross promotion as Bayonetta 3 is slated to release on the Nintendo Switch (MK11 will also be featured on the console) some time later this year. Check out Kamiya's tweet below and let us know what you think on the matter in the comments.
