MK vs DC Universe brutalizes stores November 16

Midway has announced that its crossover brawler Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe will hit stores in November 16 in the US and on November 21 in Europe. In just one month, you'll be able to pit the likes of Wonder Woman and Sonya Blade in a battle to the death. Well, the near death if you happen to be playing as a hero. Who will you choose? Who will come out on top? DC? Mortal Kombatants? The answer is neither. When you pit these two forces together, the one who wins is simple: Midway.

Video: Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe combat demo

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.

Of idle animations & exaggerations: MK VS DCU

We haven't been too kind to Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe in the past, but we did our best to reserve final judgment, hoping that the gameplay would redeem the premise, the art design and the series background. Well, the gameplay is here and it doesn't do the job we were quite hoping for. It's true that there are some interesting ideas, but there seems to be a certain level of ... disconnection that we can't put our finger on. Maybe it's the animation, the hit detection and a particular by-the-numbers flavor that the game seems to posses. Could just be us though.

MK VS DC new screens, plus "Brutalities"

When the game was first announced, fanboys on both sides were worried that Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe wouldn't be able to do justice to either property. While the main of that question is still up in the air, one small part of it has now been answered (for those few who really care). See, the very first episode of the MKast went up recently and promised again to its followers that the game would in fact feature the series' signature Fatalities.

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.

MK vs DC survey asks what you want in a potential 'Kollector's Edition'

Hot off the heels of announcing a new podcast related to the development of the upcoming fighter, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, a potential list of special edition extras was teased today. Gamers on Midway's mailing list for more info on MK vs. DC were treated with a survey earlier today that asked which extra they would be interested in if a "Kollector's Edition" was made available.

Possible extras include:
  • Comic Book
  • Art Book
  • Soundtrack
  • T-shirt
  • Animation Cell
  • Exclusive DC video
  • Making of MK vs DC video
To be honest we'd like something a bit cooler that deserves the extra few dollars. Not that an art book isn't nice, but how about a statue of Batman punching the lights out of Sub-Zero? Or you know, Kryptonite. In case Superman loses it and someone needs to take him out. Think we'd still prefer the statue, actually.

Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe ... Podcast?

Well, the Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe project (and indeed the series as a whole) has had a distinct tongue-in-cheek cheek feeling to it the entire time. And now, the developers appear to be embracing that mystique by starting up a podcast focused on the game. Scheduled to hit the tubes in a few weeks, the first episode is going to feature questions from message board posters, and we think we're going to give it a listen just for pure irony's sake.

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.

Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe Videos [Update]

Well, the official reveal of Mortal Kombat VS DC Universe is out of the way, and with the reactions only just beginning, GamesRadar posted their promised exclusive video. The forty-seven second trailer shows more than expected, including a few gameplay snippets with Batman and Sub-Zero, as well as some of the possible environmental interactions (breaking through walls). From what is seen though, it looks very much like Deadly Alliance and Deception, only there isn't any of the trademark blood or gore that was rumored to be absent. While this whole thing may be a ridiculous idea, does it really matter if the gameplay can be pulled off in a fun way? Regardless, we'll likely learn more at the end of the day when the embargo finally ends.
