After over a month's worth of teases and jokes, NetherRealm Studios finally revealed the debut gameplay trailer for Joker from the DC Universe as he'll appear in Mortal Kombat 11.

This showcase provides a look at the various tools the Batman villain can use in combat. Differing from Injustice, it appears that Joker's gameplay now revolves around using his cane.

Joker's moveset utilizes several different items that are fitting for the mad clown. Instead of having the one giant, retractable boxing glove from Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, Joker now has two of them he pummels opponents with.

One of the additions to Joker's repertoire is a Batman hand puppet that masks a pistol. We see him utilize the funny little Caped Crusader in throws and as a projectile special move.

Joker also calls in cronies to help him in battle. A tied-up ally hops across the screen before exploding, and we also see someone in a wheelchair roll in before being grabbed by Joker and swung at the opponent.

For his Fatal Blow, The Joker stabs the opponent several times before viciously beating them with his cane. The screen fills up with blood splatters, and this is where the screenshot from earlier in the week came from.

Finally, Joker's Fatality sees him hand the opponent a cake that explodes and pops them up. He then proceeds to fire a machine gun at them as they're pressed up against a large "FRIENDSHIP" sign that becomes a "FATALITY" sign as they get shot up further.

We are nearing the end of Mortal Kombat 11's Kombat Pack as Joker marks the fifth character to be released. Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, Terminator T-800, and Sindel all preceded the Batman villain, and Spawn will follow in March to close out this wave of DLC.

Joker is coming to Mortal Kombat 11 via early access for Kombat Pack owners on January 28. He will be released to everyone else one week after.
