It's True – No Fatalities in Mortal Kombat vs DC Comics
Back in September Jonathan posted an interesting notion about the new Mortal Kombat vs DC Comics game being devoid of fatalities. Today, an ex-Midway employee has confirmed this little fact, which to be quite honest has dashed my hopes of Scorpion ripping his mask off and burning The Green Lantern to death. Supposedly, according to this former employee, the game features “no fatalities and little-to-no blood”.
Then what is the point? I suppose, if you were to allow the MK characters to perform a fatality move, then Batman should be able to do the same thing – but that would be cool. He could swing his cape around, which would of course have razor sharp edges, and have it cut Sonya in half – or Robin the Boy Wonder could bitch slap Raiden to death. Just think of all the cool things they could do! Wonder Woman could use her lasso of truth to hang Reptile from a tree, The Flash could go into super speedster mode and literally jump through Kano and Aquaman could call denizen’s from the deep to eat Sub-Zero alive. The possibilities are endless, and it would make the game one of the biggest sellers of all time.
Alas, this will not be the case apparently. Check back for updates and release information, as I am sure something will be announced soon.
