It appears that the Bottle Cap Challenge, which has been going viral for a couple of days now has already reached the world of Mortal Kombat 11. The latest viral challenge requires contenders to unscrew the cap of a plastic bottle by doing a side-kick without knocking down the bottle itself. Videos of people performing the challenge have been flooding the Internet recently, including celebrities like actors Jason Statham and Ryan Reynolds.
Not wanting to back down from a challenge, Mortal Kombat 11's Jade is probably the first character from a video game to perform the Bottle Cap Challenge. Of course, given that Jade is a digital character, she was able to perform the latest viral trend effortlessly. However, NetherRealms added a little bit of a twist by letting Jade unscrew the bottle cap with her weapon instead of doing it the conventional way.
Given that the challenge is still fairly new, it is possible that more developers will be showcasing characters from their respective video games to perform the newest online craze before it dies down.
In other Mortal Kombat 11 news, rumors about its next DLC character has already been a hot topic for several days now. After the release of the game's latest DLC character Shang Tsung, an unofficial tweet from Ed Boon seems to suggest that Nightwolf will be the next to join Mortal Kombat 11's roster of fighters.
In his tweet, Boon posted an image of what is widely considered to be Nightwolf's axe. The photo was posted with a caption "And now a taste of things to kome..." which only fueled the speculation of Nightwolf becoming Mortal Kombat 11's next DLC character. Of course, until Ed Boon or NetherRealm releases more information, all fans can do for now is wait for the official announcement.
Mortal Kombat 11 is out now for PC, PS4, Switch, and Xbox One, with a Stadia version in development.
