'Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe' (PS3/X360) Gets Official Podcast

by Rainier on July 4, 2008 @ 1:00 p.m. PDT

Midway mixes things up in the Mortal Kombat franchise by adding heroes from the DC Comics universe (Batman, Superman) to the mix, new characters, new moves, new settings, but no brutal fatalities.

When a cataclysmic force merges conquerors from two universes, conflict is inevitable. Kombat forces friends to fight, worlds to collide, and unlikely alliances to be forged. In order to save all they know, the heroes and villains of Mortal Kombat must wage war against the combined might of the DC Universe (DCU). How can either side prevail when rage blinds them to the dark threat poised to destroy them all?

For the first time ever Scorpion, Sub Zero and the warriors from Midway’s billion-dollar fighting franchise face off against Batman, Superman and other iconic and powerful DC Super Heroes, featuring signature attacks for both sides and a unique and intertwining storyline, written as a collaboration between the Mortal Kombat creative team and top comic scribes Jimmy Palmiotti (Painkiller Jane, Marvel Nights, Jonah Hex, 21 Down) and Justin Gray (Batman: Legends of the Dark Knight, JLA Classified, Punisher Red X-Mas, The Resistance).

Choose your side and challenge your opponents with a new fighting system including Freefall Kombat and Klose Kombat along with dynamic multi-tiered environments. Plus, pick your favorite character from MK or DCU and pursue a fighting adventure in the new single player mode with an intertwined storyline and two unique perspectives.

Found at the official Worlds Collide website, each episode of the MKast will reveal new features and secrets of one of the videogame industry's most successful franchises. Each MKast will feature members of the Mortal Kombat development team along with surprise special guests and will tackle topics ranging from development, Mortal Kombat history, Mortal Kombat secrets, special Q&A sessions and more!

In development at Midway Amusement Games in Chicago, MK vs. DCU is slated to ship for the PS3 and X360 in Fall 2008.
