Midway Officially Announces Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe with a Trailer

Midway has officially announced Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, and 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. How can either side prevail when rage blinds them to the dark threat poised to destroy them all?” That was culled straight from the press release and it stated more than I ever could.

For the first time ever Scorpion, Sub Zero and the warriors from Mortal Kombat will face off against Batman, Superman and other DC Super Heroes, featuring signature attacks for both sides and a unique, intertwining storyline written as a collaboration between the Mortal Kombat creative team and comic scribes Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray .

MK vs. DCU is slated to ship for the PS3 and Xbox 360 in the Fall.

Hit the jump to read the quotes from the press release which like most, are full of gushing praise for all involved.

I wonder if we will ever get a press release that includes quotes from people who hated to work with one another? For example: “Bob was drunk all the time and kept playing grab-ass with all the female employees” or “John was such a tyrant that I wanted to spit in his tall quadruple half-caff ,light foam latte with soy milk every morning. God I hated that guy” or “Pete stunk so bad that even after I got home of the evening I could taste cabbage in the air – even in my apartment”.

“It is a truly unique and extremely exciting effort to be teaming up with Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment and DC Comics for the first Mortal Kombat game on next generation platforms,” said Ed Boon, co-creator and executive producer for Mortal Kombat at Midway Amusement Games. “The DC Universe characters are some of the most popular and enduring characters in the world. By combining them with the Mortal Kombat mythology, all new gameplay modes and features, plus a completely unique storyline crafted by top comic writers, players will now be able to answer the question: what would happen if Batman fought Sub Zero?”

“Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe will provide a wide audience of fans and gamers match-ups of their favorite characters in battles like they’ve never experienced before,” said Scott Johnson, Vice President, Business Development for Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. “Midway’s new Mortal Kombat gameplay paired with DC Comics’ popular characters will offer players a multitude of combat options and incredible face offs.”

“For the first time, players will be able to go toe to toe with DC and MK characters in both arena and story mode,” said John Nee, Senior Vice President, Business Development for DC Comics. “We’ve worked very closely with Midway to bring an authentic DCU flavor to their Kombat and the result features our characters like they’ve never been seen before.”
