12:03 AM CST -
The folks over at Mortal Kombat Online have been given the go ahead to release an image prior to the Midway Gamers' Day embargo of Friday, April 18th 4:00pm PDT (6:00pm CDT). Since we appreciate the collaborative efforts of MKO while out at Midway Gamers' Day, we'll be kind to simply point you to their website to check out the picture.


As of now, there is nothing else that we can reveal right now until the end of the press embargo. The game's official website WorldsCollide.com will one day feature content, but currently features a default setup page. Soon on TRMK you can expect a trailer, several images, and some detailed information on the new Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe game fairly shortly after it expires. Until then, head on over to our new Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Forum and discuss the latest revelations with fellow fans.

Reader Komments from the TRMK Forums:

Wow. Now everything on noob.com makes sense. Worlds collide.... wow, just wow. I'm stunned.

Come on, look at the last few releases, you guys were all just gonna slate it anyway, you always do. F*ck it, I'm excited anyway, regardless.
April 18th, 2008 12:47 AM CST - Glamador
I'm with you Goraka. I'm excited. I always said I wouldn't mind too much if it was MK vs. DC. I think it's rather fitting actually. MK and SF have had their rivalries, and Marvel and DC have as well. It's suitable that MK gets paired with the darker and grittier of the two competitors to team up against the more "kid-friendly" Marvel vs. Street Fighter. I know there are alot of questions like "will there be blood and fatalities anymore?" and "How will they mesh the story together from two totally different universes?" and "If they pull this off how will it not be totally gimicky?". I know it's hard, but we'll have news tomorrow and hopefully the trailer will put our minds at ease. Be optimistic people! Don't write it off before you've seen ANYTHING about it!
April 18th, 2008 12:51 AM CST - The 7th Number
Seems like the majority isnt liking this idea. I do agree that some of the DC characters like Joker, Batman, Carnage, and Venom are suited in a mortal kombat game. But there is no way they will allow fatalities, and blood in a DC game. Which is going to make the game seem more for kids. Its going to take away the mortal kombat feel from its characters. I mean how do you play a fighting game with mortal kombat characters and not be able to use a fatality on someone after you win? Thats like taking away Ryu's fireball. I just see it being kid friendly and to me that is a turn off.

This is the lamest, sorriest and most desperate piece of shit move ever. if i wanted mk v.s. d.c. i would go play mugen. this is depressing. i'm all for change, but not like this.
April 18th, 2008 12:58 AM CST - Glamador
Er...Venom and Carnage are from Spider-Man...a MARVEL property.
April 18th, 2008 1:02 AM CST - highwaytothelost
I'm interested in seeing the trailers, but if one of the DC characters kicks one of the MK characters ass... i'm going to be pissed lol.

Good. Go play Mugen. Mugen = Shit. This means you dont care for solid gameplay. What evah.
April 18th, 2008 1:19 AM CST - Glamador
Also I was just looking around the Joystiq and Kotaku and there seems to be skeptic optimism around the comments section.
April 18th, 2008 1:20 AM CST - squirrelpion
i'm just saying by comparison, i would rather play shitty mugen rather than a teen rated crossover mk. this kind of stunt would have been more exceptable 10 years ago with marvel v.s. capcom. i have played mortal kombat for 15-16 years, i just was expecting a more meaningful mk. it just seems so crazy.
April 18th, 2008 1:22 AM CST - The 7th Number
[FONT=Verdana]A game that was supposed to be more serious and darker, is actually going to be less serious and less likely to even have the special things that make Mortal Kombat what it is. Yeah cos they will make it so it gets a teen rating. Everyone at MKO is hating the idea....i wonder what boon is thinking if he is seeing all this negative feedback. Hopefully tomorrow they will shine a light on this. I mean if there is no blood or fatalities, then a lot of people are going to be pissed off. [/FONT]

Well since it's going to be MK vs DC i'll still buy it since it's a MK game. But since this is also a game with DC Characters most likely the Blood and Gore will not be in it? They might but very unlikely. They said long ago they wanted to start over and make MK a game for the next Generation? And in this case i guess you can look at this game and see that is what they are doing. They want the next Generation of MK different than the past MK games. With this game that will be different as you can get. They also want to sell the new game to the new generation as well. And how wuld they do that? They take out the blood and Gore and the game get's a T-Teen Rating like Street Fighter gets! That way a younger kid can goto the store and be able to buy it with a Teen Rating! So they sell more to a Younger Teen Fan's! And that is the next Generation of game players for XBox 360 and PS3 and Wii We are the older Generatio of MK fan's and they want this game for the Next Generation. So their focus is mostly likely for an younger Teen game fan's then? Of course they could go out and get an M rating and put the Blood and Gore into this game? But i don't see it at this point. Hopefully tomarrow we'll get full details on this and also what the Game Rating they are going for here? As i said i'll still buy it. But it's to bad if this is the only game they gave us instead of MK8. It would of been nice to get two seperate games! Say MK8 for XBox 360 and PS3 and then give us MK vs DC for Wii even PS2 since PS2 would be a good place to give a MK vs DC game to for Wii fan's and for the fan's that still are using a PS2 yet! But this now seems unlikely... Oh-Well! By: Captain-DC 04/18/2008

This is goddamn stupid if it's for real. If it's legit, I'm totally 100% done with Mortal Kombat. I've given this franchise I once worshiped too many extra chances since the embarassing pile of shit it has become since MK4. Ed Boon will never pull his head out of his ass.
April 18th, 2008 1:33 AM CST - jka12002
They are really driving MK into the ground this day and an age, why dont we just let MK rest in peice already

Just chill out dude. No official details have been released about this game. I am just hoping for solid gameplay, something missing since UMk3.

i agree
April 18th, 2008 2:53 AM CST - Angel
I'm a DC comics fan... And an MK fan... Why don't I like this idea? O.o Edit: This is the sort of game you'd expect to come out alongside an actual game. Unless, this is preperation for the proper MK8.
April 18th, 2008 2:53 AM CST - Kingraven00
Midway are 10 years late with this one. Like the other guy said, if this is legit, i'm 100% done aswell, i've been a loyal fan since MK2 and have defended them a few times from the diabolical decision to can the xbox version of MK Armageddon. Oh midway team, you just better know what you're doing.
April 18th, 2008 3:44 AM CST - Angel
Dear Midway.... To give something for the boys to eye at... Please release an image of these two women fighitng: -Angel Emfrbl Seriously... This one will be for the DC fans more then the MK fans.
April 18th, 2008 3:55 AM CST - Sai Enigma
Kotaku is reporting that they have been contacted by a former Midway employee who was part of early development on the game. He stated that the game was toned down significantly so that it could get a T-for-Teen rating. The game will have minimal blood and absolutely no gore. Yes, this means no fatalities.
April 18th, 2008 4:20 AM CST - Kona
As long as there are fatalities...I will get my chance of kicking the shit out of some lame kids fantasy characters...I hope.
April 18th, 2008 4:38 AM CST - Angel
I'm guessing this is more DCs idea then Midways. I imagine they paid a lot of money for this. On the one-hand, this might be the stick slapped on the rear to get MK to make a half-decent game. Because this time if they screw up, its DC fans that get the stick instead of just MK fans.
April 18th, 2008 5:55 AM CST - Kai
Are you serious?! All this time Ed has been telling us about wiping the slate clean and we're getting this?! Sigh It's not that I'm not excited, but I'm just wondering if this is a check that Midway will fail to cash.
April 18th, 2008 6:36 AM CST - Tim Static
I wanna see footage. Now.
April 18th, 2008 7:54 AM CST - QuanChiKiller
This is CRAZY! LOL! Let me guess....Sub-Zero pissed off Batman cause he kidnapped Alfred, so the bat called up his whole Justice League crew to the rescue. Subby started feelin outnumbered so he called up the whole MK crew to get his back. After having a bunch of gang fights and drive-by shootings, they decided to hold a tournament to settle it all. LOL! Naw but really, its probably just Kahn again tryin to merge the realms but instead of Earthrealm, I guess its Gotham...uh...realm.

Hey guys I'm new to these forums. Been playing MK since the beginning. Agreed. To be honest, I hope that this is the Wii version because no gore, blood, and fatalities are going to make this game feel generic despite it being an MK title. I'm surprised that Ed Boon picked DC to cross over with mainly due to the fact that their fighting titles, as well as a majority of their other games, don't sell too well. If the MK franchise did want to aim this towards younger players, they picked the wrong franchise to cross over with. They should have gone with Marvel, even if they did the game wouldn't feel right *Hulk brutality*. I hope things can be set straight as soon as we see some gameplay footage.
April 18th, 2008 8:55 AM CST - Shujinko
i think there will be 2 mk games in the making. i mean this render looks not like ue3 to me. the mk team in chicago ( mk8 ), and the san diago team ( mkVSdc ). what ya think?

April 18th, 2008 9:08 AM CST - CrispyDragon
I'm inclined to agree with those that seem to think this is a side project. It makes sense after all, Midway would have to be blind and deaf to be unaware of the backlash MK: Armageddon received. Perhaps this is just a stop gap where they work out the kinks in the new engine before dedicating a game to the next chapter of MK. Oh well it could be worse, at least it's not MK vs Power Rangers....

Yeah, I think i'm starting to wish it was Primal Rage after all. At least it had blood and Fatalities.
April 18th, 2008 9:39 AM CST - Malitor Greymaulkin
This has to be just an additional game, not really MK8... I mean this is really a joke if they are counting this as MK8... is it just me, or is it April 1st again?

wtf kind of post is this? What is the UE3 "supposed" to look like? and dream on about 2 games. This iis ONE game, called MK vs DC Universe. Get used to it. Get excited, but let tonights screenshots, fottage, etc do some of the explaining before you go running of a cliff for ****s sake.
April 18th, 2008 10:55 AM CST - Captain-DC
Marvel? I don't know if this is true or not. But i heard on a Capcom board not to long ago that Capcom got the rights to Marvel games now. So if that news is true then Midway couldn't use Marvel if Capcom got it. I'm not into any Marvel games unless it was a Crossover with Street Fighter like they did in the past. So i don't know if that information is 100% or not. But that is what was posted not that long ago. So if that's the case Marvel went to Capcom. Hmmm!?!?!? So DC is the only thing left far as Superheroes. And i figured they were trying for the T-Teen Rating thing with MK vs DC as they want it for a New Generation and that is Teens! Not old fans! I been buying Mortal Kombat games since Mortal Kombat 1. All the way till now. And i'll even buy this one even if it is a T-Teen game. Oh-Well! It looks like Armageddon will be the best of the old Game Series to me. Oh-Ok.... By: Captain-DC 04/18/2008

This game is done by the MK Team in Chicago. We can't reveal more right now, but come back when the Embargo lifts around 6pm Central time.

I though the embargo was lifted at 6pm Central time.

Well if this is the way MK is going wich is the Nio Blood, no Fatality, then when they say each game come to an end this is the time for Mk wich this new stupid idea, i haven'T seen one positif word about the game yet, wtf?? i hope the info will put my mind up!!!

Actually, Capcom only has partial rights to the Marvel franchise. The big owners now are EA, Activision still has the rights to Spiderman, and I believe Sega for Ironman as of right now. In all honesty, I really hope that this is some gimmick to get us all riled up for the actual thing or I'm gonna flip. I know this might be a little off topic, but do you think there's gonna be a Konquest mode? If so, is it gonna play more like MKSM or fixed like the MK games?

I don't think the Embargo is lifted until later tonight. I'm guessing Gamesradar jumped the gun. There's supposed to be screenshots and stuff as well.

The trailer is already up on The Radar web site and its STUPID GAME, i dont see what is that have to do with the End and what would hapopend after MK Armageddon theres no connection!!!!

There's going to be an question and answer session coming up. Did you guys come up with good questions?
April 18th, 2008 1:02 PM CST - -illusion-
What the hell is this crap? Since when do superheroes in spandex have any relevancy to Mortal Kombat? This isn't the MK that earned its reputation since the 90's. It's gotten pansy-like since after the released of MK:Deception and MK:Armageddon and now we're suppose to "enjoy" this? Iím more curious to see how this idea will fail miserably more than the actual released date. Expect this game to earn a Rated T rating because there is no way Batman can perform a fatality; that will cause an uproar and tear DC a new asshole.

look, all these new members who have only just signed up and are pissing and moaning about a game they haven't even played yet, let alone know anything about, what was the point in even signing up? If all you want is gore in a game go play manhunt. I mean it, what was the point in even signing up? Plus, there's plenty of gore in a lot of DC comics, what's to say it won't just make use of each consoles parental settings? Look, if all you're gonna do is write "wah wah wah this isn't exactly 100% the most amazing game anyone has ever made, I'm gonna stop playing mortal kombat forever and send Boon death threats", then do us all a favour and don't bother. If the game is released and it's shit, then whatever, but it hasn't and it might not be, so for f*ck's sake stop crying!
April 18th, 2008 1:50 PM CST - Glamador
Well said! But even so from the interview with Boon the game looks VERY promising. An all new fighting mechanic with all sorts of new features. There WILL be finishers. Unfortunately it's not going to be rated M...but I'm optimistic.
April 18th, 2008 1:57 PM CST - casess1
I still have hope for this game. I feel Midway will not do "Fatalities" but I hope it's something along the lines of a super combo "IE:Killer Instinct" ending with a death move. I thinking that would go over well with both MK and DC fans.

I don't know how long you been on the MK Community for you to be in a pedestal and tell veterans who probably been here on the community longer than you have to quit ****ing crying when you're doing in right now too. The game might not be out but that does not stop people from voicing their opinion about the obvious truth: This Mortal Kombat game is going to be the biggest tainted piece of crap that has ever smear the name of Mortal Kombat.

Plus, there's plenty of gore in a lot of DC comics, what's to say it won't just make use of each consoles parental settings? Look, if all you're gonna do is write "wah wah wah this isn't exactly 100% the most amazing game anyone has ever made, I'm gonna stop playing mortal kombat forever and send Boon death threats", then do us all a favour and don't bother. If the game is released and it's shit, then whatever, but it hasn't and it might not be, so for f*ck's sake stop crying!
Ive been on MKO for years Im a 16 year MK VET! I have defended this series from the beginning but simply cant do so anymore. You are obviously a DC fan so you are looking forward to this.

I agree with Glamador....I can't stand these ungrateful, unpleased, "perfectionist" for MK fans.....I see them all the time on MKO and it sickens me to see the ignorance and arrogance of such crap posted all over the place. I swear some MK fans are seriously hopeless lol, Midway just can't win...you think you can make a better MK game? ha, ha highly doubtful... A.OMG, OMG soo because we aren't getting fatalities, this means the game will automatically suck right? right... B.Don't you people(the MK/DC haters) remember a game called MVC2? Even though it's broken to hell, it's still fun and was received well with it's cartoonish look....a point Glamador brought up earlier which I totally agree with, MK vs. DC LOOKS DARK, can you NOT see this people? C. The MKO interview said Boon says most likely it'll be rated T for teen BUT they will push the limits for an M rating, so don't assume the rating just yet(like it matters anyway...) D.This match up "concept" wise is no more silly or stupid then Marvel's Venom taking on Ryu....yet people have having a 'crap fit about Sub going up against Batman....:sleep: E. I love it how after one teaser vid, pics and information of change that fans have been COMPLAINING about constantly for months after day one we immediately get the same old crying, bickering and unappreciate MK fanbase crying up a storm because "they don't like the change" seriously, judging the game WAYYYYYYYYYY before it's even out is just boarderline stupid and a very UNWISE policy. Give it a chance and try to be optimistic...ha, ha like that will happen with certain fans that claim to love MK... If you truly love MK and are openminded to new ideas, then you'll be fair and NOT judge it many, many months before the games even out. Enough said. On a personal note I love boths series and feel it'll be a great game, something new to the table. Fans cried they wanted change, Boon said alright we'll give you change, here's your change. Accept it or go ride on another fighting game series in which they're also doing crossovers, DC with Yoda, Vader, SSBB with Snake, MVC games etc, etc.... Later

To be honest I've only been in the 'community' for a few years, but I've been playing since day one when my brother in law brought home MK1 on the Genesis, and loved each game more than the last. I even managed to sit through Special Forces, and even enjoy it to a degree. I wasn't questioning the size of your MK penis, I was just saying what's the point of signing up for a forum if all you're going to do is moan about shit you don't even really know about yet. All these people who keep posting just to say the same thing over and over and threatening to leave and never play MK again should quit whining, and just do it. Leave the 4-or-so of us who are actually optimistic to have constructive conversations. And if you are just signing up to complain, go do it at another forum.

People are entitled to their opinion. Even if it is knee-jerk, the world is ending, the sky is falling, etc. A lot of people started to build their own vision of what a completely re-imaging of the series would look like. And when Ed Boon's vision of a new start looks nothing like their vision, kaboom! We get the outcry and derision. Still it is important that people are able to voice their reaction. Even if it is completely negative. Once it gets closer to when the game is going to be released and more information is being let out, then we'll see if people have the same opinion.

Each to their own opinion, but after watching the trailer and seeing those screenshots of Sub-Zero vs. Batman, I'm warming up to the idea! I say go for it! I'm a little indifferent to the fatalities being replaced seeing how they've been in every single MK game, but if Boon says they're gonna push for an M rating then I'm ok with it. One match-up my friends and I hope to see is Sub-Zero vs. Mr. Freeze! At first I was whining and *****ing like others, but Street Fighter and Marvel have had their own versus games, and I believe MK and DC have waited long enough.

hey there squirrelpion from the past! would you like some humble pie?

Yeah, a lot of people's tones changed I've noticed from negative to very positive now that we've actually seen gameplay. I'm pumped for this game : )
