Put on your reading glasses and take a looksy at the new video embedded above showcasing a solid four minutes of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe fighting footage. The game actually looks rather intense, true to form and with the addition of free fall combat and close combat scenarios, it could be a winner. Take in all the video goodness and cheer for the Batman. He and his newfound wealth are all the rage right now, don'tcha know.
Bu- bu- bu- but Batman doesn't kill! Indeed. To rectify this, the DC characters will have what are known as Brutalities instead. Just like a Fatality, except, y'know, not fatal. As you can tell, we're absolutely ecstatic about this news. Wee.
Possible extras include:
- Comic Book
- Art Book
- Animation Cell
- Exclusive DC video
- Making of MK vs DC video
We don't at all intend to insult the game or the developers, it's just that ... unless the show isn't very regular, we can't imagine that there's going to be a whole lot to discuss, it's a fighting game. The story isn't very deep, the character selection is supposed to be a bit of a secret, and the mechanics can't be too complicated so as to appeal to a wide audience. Basically, we hope it can pleasantly surprise us by actually being great.
[Update: Added Gamespot's interview video after the break]
Well we were right, the next Mortal Kombat title will indeed feature DC comics characters. Officially titled Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe the game was confirmed at Midway's Las Vegas event, and included a single piece of teaser art featuring a certain dark winter's knight and a more traditional MK frozen fighter. Not much is known at this time, but now that it's officially official, let the nerdy character speculation begin!
