* The announcement of ''VideoGame/MortalKombatVsDCUniverse'' was largely met with apathy and dread from MK fans, DC fans, and gaming press alike for separate reasons. and then the video of [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_Pf9ox0S_RU Joker's fatality]] was released.
** A more direct rejoicement was the announcement of [[ComicBook/{{Shazam}} Captain Marvel]] and Deathstroke as playable characters. This game marks their debut in video games for both of them. And in the MK side, [[BladeBelowTheShoulder Baraka]].

* Any serious MK fan would be rejoicing to the announcement that WB was giving the team as much time as they needed to complete the game. Why would this fit here? Before the buyout, Midway was notorious for [[ExecutiveMeddling screwing around with the games' deadlines and funding]], to the point of wanting to [[CashCowFranchise milk the franchise]] for a new game ''each year'', resulting in the subpar quality of the recent games. In essence, this announcement shows just how serious WB is with making a big positive impact with their first MK game.
** The better part? For [=PS3=] users, they will be treated with the GuestFighter of ''[[VideoGame/GodOfWar Kratos]]''.
* OK, so ''[=MK9=]'' is epic, yadda yadda... wait... why is Shang Tsung dressed like a clown... OH MAN, [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UjfT4UuaUQg THE JOKER FATALITY]] IS RESTORED.
* [[DownloadableContent DLC]] [[http://www.fightersgeneration.com/np7/mk9-dlc.jpg has finally been revealed:]] '''[[VideoGame/MortalKombatDeadlyAlliance Kenshi?]]''' '''[[AscendedMeme SKAR]][[AscendedGlitch LET?!]]''' OH. '''''YES.'''''
* [[ButWaitTheresMore It gets better]]; you might want to sit down for this one. Remember the purple ninja named Rain (yeah, let [[PunnyName the name]] [[Music/{{Prince}} sink in for a bit]])? One of two characters from [[VideoGame/MortalKombat the]] [[VideoGame/MortalKombat2 original]] [[VideoGame/MortalKombat3 trilogy]] to not be present in ''[=MK9=]'' (the other being Motaro, whose starkly non-bipedal form mostly likely [[GameBreakingBug would have been difficult to program around]])? [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fh3z69pEZH4#1m32s Yeah, guess who?]]
** [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=unBhr7bxiFY And he has the trademark Super Roundhouse Kick back!]]
** Fans bummed over Kratos being a [=PS3=] exclusive GuestFighter rejoiced when it was announced [[Franchise/ANightmareOnElmStreet Freddy Krueger]] would be joining as DLC.
* Now that ''Mortal Kombat: Komplete Edition'' is out on PC, many more old school fans rejoice.
