GameTrailers has a special sneak peek of the special moves and fighting mechanics of The Joker, originally shot for the GameTrailers TV show on SpikeTV. In addition, we are given a glimpse of the Rage Meter in action. Finally at the end, we are given the first look of The Joker tricked out Fatality. The video speaks for itself. Check it out.



We can see that the green cloud move is a guessing game move that allows the player to perform different attacks out of the cloud. Definitely an unorthodox character for a Mortal Kombat game; however, it appears that this added element of variety falls right within Mortal Kombat's history of humor and violence. The biggest shocking moment is the gruesomeness of the gun shot to the head in The Joker's fatality, given the game's targeted T for Teen rating.

Thanks DeathcoreRyknow!

another cool fatality ruined by stupid yellow eyes!! omg! i think they shold remove those yellow eyes.

It's not ruined, it's just apart of the storyline. Fatality looks sick as hell, I don't even care about the eye thing honestly.

They did an amazing job with the joker. His specials are killer and that fatality is completely awesome.

Storyline? What? I love this fatality. Realistic compared to the other MK games where the head flies off. The glowing eyes ruin everything.

No they don't, it's something trivial that's not even a big deal...reminds me of the people complaining on MKO about "rainbow in the background" in Kitana's render...*shakes head* There's been hints that that happens due to the storyline in this particular game, but like I said it hardly ruins anything. If you read all over the net on every MK site, or GS, GT etc everyone loves the Joker's fatality for the most part.

The joker will be one of those guys thats fun to play as at first, but grows old real fast.

I love his fighting stance, it's the camp, slapstick Joker that everyone has forgotten about since TDK. For everyone who's never read a comic or even watched a DC cartoon, this is the awesome Joker you've all been missing out on. The glowing eyes are more of a WTF? moment than a game-ruining problem. Are they a fatality thing though, or something to do with Rage?

I dont know, but the glowing eyes is pretty dumb looking. And for the record, as much as I liked the fatality, it is August 23, and this game doesnt even come out until about a week & a half ito November, so this fatality will be quite old by then.

I'm pretty sure it'll have something to do with the storyline based off the hints of the storyline that we've been told so far, we'll see though. So happy to see the original fatalities back though since MKA's received a bad reception overall.

The glowing eyes are to do with the rage feature I think. It's mainly for the DC heroes because even though the brutalities don't kill, it's still "out of character" which is explained by them being enraged and going further then they usually would. And so they've just kept it with all the characters to look standard probably.

Yep, I was right hehe Boon just admitted in that new interview from mkuniverse that they are story related indeed : ) I find the fact that Superman and Raiden having key roles is rather very interesting with their parallel experience within the storyline.

Joker looks awesome!!! His fatality is cool, but the yellow eyes thing makes him and the characters look stupid as hell... And whats the deal with the game designer saying that rage mode looks sorta like "the glow" in the movie "the last dragon"??? why base something off that steaming pile of 80's crap to something awesome like MKvsDCU???
