Joker is finally in Mortal Kombat 11 but boy does he need some tweaks. Luckily, the team over at NetherRealm were more than aware of this and wasted no time when it came to diving into their fixes. Now that a new Mortal Kombat 11 update is here, it works a little balance magic though the majority of the latest patch is geared towards the latest fighter. 

Mortal Kombat 11 Update, February 

For starters, the latest update tackles a weird bug where a character would actually end up moving through another character after a Getup Forward Roll was performed. That's been fixed thankfully in addition to a few Erron Black tweaks, Jacqui Briggs' Danger Zone fix, and a few other minor adjustments to Kano, Khan, Kung Lao, Shang Tsung, Nightwolf, and Terminator. And Joker, but you already knew that by this point. 

Here's what's new
