Kotaku has the first word from the San Diego Comic-Con presentation. The four new characters announced are The Joker and Green Lantern from the DC Comics side and Jax and Kitana from the Mortal Kombat side. Also announced was that Jimmy Palmiotti, DC Comics writer, might be a hidden character in the game and that Superman's Fortress of Solitude was shown and will be an environment in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

The big reveal at Comic-Com was the announcement of a limited edition comic book, illustrated by none other than Mortal Kombat co-creator John Tobias. The comic book, written by the MK Team, will be included in the Kollectors Edition on both Xbox 360 and PLAYSTATION 3 platforms.

IGN has a write up on the event that features a render of The Joker, along with a video that was played at the event and a few questions and answer bullet points. Here's is the video shown at the event. Click the "widescreen" button to enlarge.


GameSpy has a minute by minute rundown of the presentation. Also, GameSpot has gameplay demonstration videos, featuring Shang Tsung and Catwoman.

Check out more coverage of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, including an in-depth interview with Ed Boon along with trailers available in 720p HD in our Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe GameRealm.

Not to ruin the buzz, but does it mean that John is even rejoining the MK team? Man I tell ya, we fans both MK and DC are getting the royal treatment on the whole deal! I'm gonna go for the special edition!

The special edition was a guarenteed pre-order from me the moment they announced the game. Now that goes double.

This game is shaping up to be better and better! Every reveal by the MK team (Ed Boon) has been getting excited and extremely optimistic. I really hope the game lives up to the hype.

Now the question is....3 spots left on each side....whose is it gonna be? No doubt a DCU spot will go to Wonder Women, but MK is still WAY up in the air.

I need to ask you guys a favor. I need to know ASAP if the Kollectors Edition will be released in Europe, and if it isn't I need to know if it will be region free. I don't want to miss out on a slice of MK history. EDIT: Yeah, that's one spot on each side on Worlds Collide, but if we look at the character select screen, it leaves three slots each. They did initially say 10 on each so I'm going with that.

LMAO, can you tell I've been awake for almost 30 hours straight? lol So damn tired i can even count, my bad. :sheep:

Well I'm still holding out for Shao Kahn. Even if he's not playable (although I hope he is) I'd be happy enough to just see him there. Boon did say that there WILL be characters that are non-playable that appear in the story mode.

We need more villians now...

I'm still shocked Raiden has not been announced.... And i'm still dreading the day i hear Johnny Cages name..... If Boon really had a sense of humor he would put in stryker.

And why would anyone want that?
July 26th, 2008 12:10 PM CST - jeary
MK - Kahn, Raiden, (goro, ermac, smoke, noob, quan chi, shinnok?) Dc - Wonder Woman, (Darkseid, doomsday, Luther?)

As far as Europe and the Kollectors Edition, that answer hasn't been made official yet. Everyone keeps saying that they don't see a reason why it won't be. I don't remember, did Armageddon get skipped in Europe?
July 26th, 2008 3:28 PM CST - Goraka
It says in the story line on WC that two Conquerors merge. So I'm guessing that we'll see a kind of amalgamation between Shao Kahn or Onaga and Darkseid or maybe Mongul? EDIT: Yeah, we only got the standard editions of all of the MKs so far.

UMK3 (not MK3, no riot gun) Stryker is fun as hell to play with. Example: http://youtube.com/watch?v=-WWVqIXvZ6M

Yes. Raiden & Wonder Woman, then 2 more baddies on each side would rock.

That may be so, but he doesn't have a place in this game's pantheon of MK legends. Jax is rather suspect, but there's little that can be done about that now.
July 26th, 2008 11:40 PM CST - Tim Static
The MKvDC is definitely has a Alex Ross feel, as seen with his Joker action figurine:
July 27th, 2008 12:43 PM CST - highwaytothelost
I'm really hoping for Lobo to be announced.
July 27th, 2008 5:55 PM CST - Mads
Jax?????????????????????????????????? Really?
July 27th, 2008 6:46 PM CST - Tim Static
Out of the 6 spots left, I am only really hoping for Raiden, Doomsday, Kabal & Wonder Woman. the other 2 I dont really care.
July 27th, 2008 10:08 PM CST - highwaytothelost
If they don't announce raiden soon... i'll flip lol. I've got to see his electricity on this new gen stuff.
July 27th, 2008 10:42 PM CST - jeary
We need villians! Besides Joker, Shang Tsung, and Scorpion (if you even consider him a villian), there are no bad guys at all! All six remaining need to be villians.
July 27th, 2008 11:12 PM CST - Glamador
Shao Kahn, Darkseid, Raiden, Reptile, Sektor, and Deathstroke. Those are my picks.
July 28th, 2008 1:01 AM CST - boJac
If Kahn and teh 'Seid are the main bosses, then they probably won't be playable. That being said, my six are: Wonder Woman, Lobo and (I'll go out on a limb) Booster Gold as well as Raiden, Johnny Cage and Kano. What about the sub bosses? Are they gonna have those? If so, Goro and Doomsday.

Reptile is an epic pick, no doubt. Sektor is very, VERY shaky though. I'm not too up for Sektor. Raiden will make it, why wouldn't he?

Maybe Raiden wont make the cut. I never really considered it, but theres way too many good guys. I could see Kahn, Reptile, and Baraka rounding out the final picks. I said in another thread that although Sektor would be awesome with the new graphics, he just doesnt quite fit, but either does stupid Jax, so who knows what will happen.

Well...we might be able to see Dark Raiden in. Reptile and Kano should make it in IMO. Bizzaro....lol

Right now... I want a Superman villian. I don't care if its Brainiac or the Toyman.

no way, lol. He didnt go dark until MK: D and this is supposed to take place between MKII & MK3, so....bad ass GOOD Raiden for this game! And Bizzaro is a good choice too.
July 31st, 2008 9:34 AM CST - Glamador
Arg, Bizzaro? Come on, we've already got Superman and Captain Marvel do we need another one? I'd rather have Brainiac.

Dark Raiden! Now we're talking. I would love to see him and kahn be dual bosses or something awesome like that.

The Joker.....that is so SWEET! I can't wait for this game.
