Next Mortal Kombat: MK Vs. ???
Marvel Vs. Capcom. X-Men Vs. Street Fighter. And now, Mortal Kombat Vs. …somebody. That’s the rumor coming from TRMK, the website for all things Mortal Kombat. According to their sources, the next Mortal Kombat game (aside from the one slated for the DS) will be coming to PS3 and Xbox 360 and will be a “Vs.” title. There’s been a lot of speculation as to who the other fighting group could be, but all that is known is that it would be a well-known license. The main rumor around the internet is that license could be DC Comics, with such superhero favorites as Batman and Superman. The developers have discussed before how this next game will be built from the ground up, so the possibility of a lot of change — including the elimination of fatalities — could be open.
Hard to say what could happen with this one. DC is notoriously stingy with their characters, but they’ve begun to relax these policies a little with Marvel’s continuing success in Hollywood. If they did turn out to be the other group though, the fatalities would most likely have to go. Something tells me the idea of being able to, say, rip out Superman’s spine probably wouldn’t sit well with the DC guys.
