New DC skins heading to Mortal Kombat 11

DC ya soon!

We got to see the full gameplay reveal for the Joker in Mortal Kombat 11 earlier today, but that's not the only DC love the game is getting. A 'DC Elseworlds' skinpack is coming as well, and it includes some costumes fans of DC should be quite familiar with. Included in the lineup is "the menacing 'Darkest Knight' Noob Saibot, reptilian 'Killer Kroc' Baraka, sleek 'Katwoman of Outworld' Kitana, and Time Lord of Apokolips" Geras.

Mortal Kombat movie release date reconfirmed

Test your might

We are officially just under a year away from the release of the Mortal Kombat movie. Unless something goes wrong during editing, we can expect the film to release on Jan. 15th, 2021. This news was reconfirmed by both writer Greg Russo and actor Ludi Lin, with Lin sharing the special image above. Hopefully the wait for this film ends up being worth it!

Official profile for Joker's Mortal Kombat 11 appearance shared

This is not a joke

We'll be getting a gameplay trailer for Joker in Mortal Kombat 11 later today, but while we wait, we have a bit more info to check out. A profile for the character has been added to digital shop listings, which gives us a quick rundown of the character. Check out the full profile below.

"Unpredictable, violent, and incredibly dangerous, The Joker, is chaos personified. He's killed Robin, crippled Batgirl, and tortured and murdered countless people throughout the DC Universe. And now, he's the latest Kombatant to join in Mortal Kombat."

Mortal Kombat 11 'Joker' gameplay trailer seems set for release tomorrow

This town needs an enema!

Earlier this week, Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon teased a Mortal Kombat 11 Joker gameplay trailer. He said the trailer was coming soon, but we didn't know just how soon that would be. Now with another tease, it seems like we have our answer.

There's no doubt that Boon's tease and the above from the Mortal Kombat Twitter account are both pointing to the same thing. I guess we'll see Joker in action tomorrow!

Mortal Kombat 11 'Joker' gameplay trailer coming soon

Joke's on us soon

Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon has taken to Twitter to tease an upcoming trailer for Mortal Kombat 11. We'll soon get our best look yet at what Joker has to offer, as apparently a gameplay trailer for the clown prince of crime is coming soon. The single screen above is all that was shared alongside Boon's tease, but hopefully we'll get a full look at this trailer before the week closes out.

TT Games working to "benchmark and optimize" LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on Switch, are "really pleased" with the results

Looks good, this one does

LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga is most likely going to be a big hit on Switch, and TT Games knows the potential audience for the platform is huge. That's why they want to make sure they do the best they can with the Switch version. In an interview with NintendoEverything, TT Games creative leads Arthur Parsons talks about the continuing work on the Switch version, and where they're at right now.

In terms of the actual figures, we’re going to continue to benchmark and optimize. We’ll look at it more. Right now today we’re happy with what we’ve shown, and it looks good. We’re really pleased. And part of it was gauging, is this going to stand up when people see it for the first time? Are they going to go, “Oh, this doesn’t look so great.” Or are they going to go, “Woah”? And it was definitely the latter. Every time we’ve shown it, people have gone, “Wow, this is a big step up for LEGO games.” And we’re like, “Great, so that’s the benchmark for the visuals.” Let’s make sure we can make that perform. And we think we certainly can. But first, let’s make sure that this is the level that people expect from a next-generation LEGO game.

TT Games shares their love for Switch, says LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga runs like a dream on the platform

Big fans of Switch

TT Games has a very long history with Nintendo platforms, and they're continuing that line with LEGO Star Wars: The Skywalker Saga on Switch. In a NintendoEverything interview, TT Games' James Burgon and Arthur Parsons talk about their work on the Switch version of the game, as well as the Switch in general. Check out what they had to say below.

James Burgon: “It’s been really good actually. The first build that we had on Switch ran like a dream, so it’s great. With the new technology, we started off and had that in mind because Switch is one of our biggest platforms actually in the US, so we really want to do it justice on that platform.”

Arthur Parsons: “We love Switch. We love Nintendo. TT loves Nintendo, right? If you go back to the original Star Wars games with the Complete Saga which is one of the first game that I worked on back in 2006 – those games and Indy 1, and that kind of stuff, they were on Wii and then the Wii U. TT has been really good about doing the same game across all platforms without having to make it so much worse because we’ve been doing this for a long, long time. So the Switch, that’s not a challenge for us. Yeah there’s different technical hardware and software things with all consoles, but we work hard to make sure the experience is as good as it can be on all platforms including Switch.”
