A new trailer for Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath was released this morning that puts a major focus on Friendships. The returning finisher type aims to allow players to close out their games with a pleasant offering instead of a brutal bloodbath.

In this trailer, a quick glimpse at many of the roster's Friendships was shown, and there's quite a bit to take in. Right off the cuff, we see somewhat of a cameo from Batman in Joker's finisher, and Mileena fans will either be very happy or very unhappy with Mr. Ed Boon after watching this showcase.

Let's get right down to the nitty-gritty. Featured here we have a couple of seconds of Joker's Friendship, and in it, we see him pointing a gun at what I imagine is his opponent with the intent to do something very unfriendly.

We then see the camera shift focus to an incoming batarang, which barrels toward Joker and hits him in the back of the head. This stops him from firing the gun, and unfortunately, we don't get to see what happens next.

With the addition of Friendships, Boon and the NetherRealm Studios crew finally gave into the undying fan demand: they brought Mileena back. Instead of being a playable character, though, the ferocious ninja can be seen playing Patty Cake with her sister, Kitana, in the finisher for the latter.

There is plenty more to see here, with new Friendship reveals for Kabal, Kollector, Sindel, Fujin, Cassie Cage, and many others. We also see what might be the most epic of all of the finishers in Jax's, which you can catch at the end of the trailer.

Friendships are set to hit Mortal Kombat 11 as a free update on May 26, the same day Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath is being released. So, even if you don't put up the money for the upgrade, you will still be able to hit all of your friends with these friendly Friendships.
