Universes Collide: Mortal Kombat, DC Comics Ready for Battle

Now there have been numerous crossover fighting games, so it’s never too surprising when a new once gets announced, but a Mortal Kombat versus DC Comics crossover has never, ever crossed my mind so when initial reports of such a title began surfacing Friday into the weekend I just couldn’t believe it. Turns out, though, that there is in fact such a game in development, as Midway today came out with confirmation of the project officially titled Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

The title is due out this fall for PS3 and Xbox 360 and will see MK icons like Scorpion and Sub Zero doing battle with DC Comics superheros like Batman and Superman. Supposedly, from reports I read over the weekend the game won’t have fatalities due to Warner Bros. and DC being reluctant to have their iconic characters mutilated like that. So yeah, an MK game without fatalities is like a platformer without platforms, it just doesn’t sound right. But who knows, the MK franchise has been stuck in a rut for years now I think, so maybe a drastic change like this will breathe new life into it. At least the style looks cool, as you can see in the following debut teaser trailer.
