Janet Cage, an alternative timeline version of Johnny Cage, was announced a month ago, together with the Peacemaker trailer. In the recent Mortal Kombat 1 update, she was introduced to the game as a Kameo fighter. 

Together with Janet, the developers fixed some bugs, with most of them happening on Nintendo Switch. However, no big balance changes were made, and this may disappoint some fans. Read the full patch notes below:
