'Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe' (PS3/X360) Developers vs. You Beatdown

by Rainier on Jan. 22, 2009 @ 5:38 p.m. PST

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.

For the first time in the series, players will step outside the Mortal Kombat universe to assume the heroic identities of world-renowned characters from the DC Universe, including Superman, Batman and Wonder Woman, as they join video game icons such as Scorpion, Sub-Zero and Raiden. Making a fiendish appearance alongside their comic counterparts will be notorious DC Universe villains such as CatWoman, Lex Luthor and The Joker, who along with MK favorites such as Liu Kang, Sonya and Shao Kahn, all play a part in unraveling the mystery of what has caused these two universes to collide...

  • Ed Boon - Creative Director/Team Lead
  • Paulo Garcia - Senior Designer
  • Brian Lebaron - Designer
