NetherRealm Studios and Warner Bros. are still adding DLC skins to the hit fighting game Mortal Kombat 11, and one of them transforms one of the games' Kombatants into DC's infamous antihero and occasional villain, Harley Quinn.
As announced on the game's official Twitter page, Mortal Kombat fighter Cassie Cage, the adult daughter of series mainstays Johnny Cage and Sonya Blade, will be able to don an altered Harley Quinn outfit that's similar to Harley's Injustice 2's design.
In a nod to the Birds of Prey film slated for 2020, the Mortal Kombat 11 Twitter page pokes fun at the idea of Cassie Cage auditioning for the movie. Sadly, it seems Cassie has inherited the same acting "skills" as her father, Johnny Cage.
In the video, she's facing off against Arnold Schwarzenegger's Terminator T-800, another new playable character introduced through the game's DLC Kombat Pack. After the Terminator takes his gun out of a flower box filled with Johnny Cage action figures in a nod to Terminator 2: Judgement Day , Cassie closes out the teaser video sighing, "Welcome to the jungle," a reference to The Predator 1987 movie which is another Schwarzenegger role.
While Harley still doesn't technically appear in the game, her one-time beau, the Joker, is set to be released as a DLC guest-fighter for the game.
Those who order the Kombat Pack rather than purchasing the characters individually will have early access to the exclusive gear and skins. Cassie Quinn and the T-800 will be available to players on Oct. 8, along with Sindel being released on Nov. 26, Joker on Jan. 28 and finally Spawn on March 17.
Mortal Kombat 11 is developed by NetherRealm Studios and published by Warner Bros. Interactive. It is currently available for PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch and PC. Additionally, a Mortal Kombat 11 free trial will be available from Oct. 11-14 on PlayStation 4 and Xbox One, offering access to all multiplayer game modes, a portion of the Story mode, the full base game roster of characters and a preview of the recently added Kombat Pack fighters
