Earlier this week, long-time Mortal Kombat fighter Scorpion was revealed to be the latest addition to the Injustice: Gods Among Us cast. Now we know when the yellow, masked ninja will be playable.

On June 11, the Scorpion DLC will be available for $4.99 on the PlayStation Network or 400 Microsoft Points on Xbox 360. For season pass owners, Scorpion is the third entry in a list of four promised characters.

In the video below, Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon talks with co-publisher at DC Comics Jim Lee about Scorpion’s seemingly unusual entry into the DC universe. 

“As we made the first Mortal Kombat game, we actually made a comic book to introduce the story,” Boon said. “We felt that, in doing a DC game, to have a guest character who’s kind of rooted in comics seemed like a natural fit for the game.”
