If you follow us here on Nerdgasm you will no doubt have found we are huge Mortal Kombat fans. I have played every title ever launched. While Mortal Kombat: Aftermath is the first try DLC to join the franchise. The installment isn’t quite done. This time it adds some summer fun.

I think this goes down nicely as an extension of Friendships. Don’t get me wrong. I love the blood and gore aspect of the game. It’s my second favorite thing after it’s rich mythology. However, I have always had a soft spot for friendships.

It’s just three main characters for now. Kitana dressed in seasonal Edenian attire as “Edenian Summer Kitana,” Barakaprepping his barbecue as “Off the Bone Baraka,” and Erron Black donning a red, white, and blue patriotic suit and top hat as “Fireworks Erron Black.”

This is just the start though with the Klassic Femme Fatale Skin Pack coming on Aug. 25, and the All Hallows’ Eve Skin Pack on Oct. 8, which will be available for all Mortal Kombat 11: Aftermath owners and include three new skins each. More information on the upcoming character skin packs will be announced at a later date.

Mortal Kombat is filled with such rich history and colorful characters, it’s hard to pass up on this if you a fan. Besides the fun element, it does bring a lot of freshness to the game.
