True Game Headz has posted what they claim to be footage from the "final build" of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. During the video you get to see the first look at the game's single player cinematic scenes. During the clip you see Kano and The Flash battling it out before the actual fight begins. Appears to be a big step ahead from previous single player campaign videos we've seen before. You also see some fight footage of Captain Marvel (who is actually named that in-game) for the first time. You can also hear MK Producer Hector Sanchez talking about the game in the background.

Update: Forum Member Snow has found this image on the Gamestop's website that depicts the box art for the Collector's Edition of the game. We don't have a higher resolution image yet, but I'd expect one from Midway soon.

Awesome. Everything is lookin A-OK...... ....except Baraka.
October 3rd, 2008 1:40 PM CST - boJac
I think Baraka looks cool. All animalistic with sweet armor.
October 3rd, 2008 2:19 PM CST - jeary
I like everything about Baraka except the armor. I dont know if its the color or what, but whenever I glance at it, I just think boring.
October 3rd, 2008 2:23 PM CST - Tim Static
He seriously looks like he has a dress on or something. It looks awful. I was expecting alot more with him.

EDIT: ALEX ROSS cover, FTW!
October 3rd, 2008 5:56 PM CST - jeary
Now that is what the game cover should look like. That was obviously there plan. 1. Create a crappy looking boxart for the regular version. 2. Create a sweet looking boxart for Kollectors version so everyone buys that. 3. Success.
October 3rd, 2008 8:05 PM CST - Goraka
That'll be the Alex Ross removeable sleave then. Sweet.
October 3rd, 2008 8:31 PM CST - Tim Static
You know, the closer I put my face to the screen and look at the Kollector's edition, the more my jaw hits the floor. I WANT A POSTER OF THIS COVER!!!
October 3rd, 2008 9:07 PM CST - Goraka
Run a Google Image search for Alex Ross. The guy is mind blowing.
October 3rd, 2008 9:23 PM CST - MKF30-mkdc
The original doesn't look crappy at all, John Tobias did that one I believe from what I've heard due to the similar style and also did the comic book(and original MK comics) so I still love his style. The art styles are different obviously, this one seems more "dramatic" but both are very well done artisticly speaking. I think the KE one will appeal more to DC fans rather then MK fans, a lot of MK fans are happy John did some artwork for MK 8.
October 4th, 2008 11:59 AM CST - Glamador
Yea I've got no problems with Tobias' artwork. And I assume that's the artwork that will be under the removable sleeve on the Kollector's Edition Box. That's how it is on the SCIV one anyway, removable artwork sleeve with other boxart below (and on the gamecase inside the metal box). I'm loving it really. But Baraka rubs me the wrong way too...dunno what it is.

An additional cut-scene screenshot was added to Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon's personal website, noob.com. Ed continues to give us a tiny look at the single player campaign of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. This screenshot reveals a first ever look at a story mode situation where a DC Universe character is shown. Here we see Scorpion and The Joker falling to their possible deaths in the middle of what looks like downtown Gotham. It looks very similar to the free-fall combat mode, so it could be a situation where you are trained on how to properly use that mode.

With the upcoming release of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, the leading publisher of gaming strategy guides Prima Games is knee deep in putting together their "Official Game Guide" for the game. Each Mortal Kombat game usually has it's own changes which can change how a strategy guide is put together, so it's interesting to see what the publishers put together to offer the customers a great benefit from purchasing their guides.

So to get more insight into this process, Prima Games allowed TRMK contributor The Aces to conduct an exclusive interview with freelance writer Jason Wilson who is the content author for the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe - Prima Official Game Guide.

Here is a quick excerpt from the interview:

TRMK: Another of the gripes with the previous guides were that the story mode sections were rather incomplete. Do you intend to go very indepth in this guide on the story mode? For instance, will we see a list of cameos, who you run into/fight, what happens, etc?

JW: I think the different between this game and Armageddon is that MKA was a beast of a game, and I am pretty sure the authors did not have much time to delve into that as opposed to what they had access to. Story Mode is not the in-depth part of the strategy, as it is pretty self explanatory, and unlike Armageddon, which had modes similar to Deception, and tons of characters, the meat of this game is really the balanced Vs. Mode gameplay.

Crave Online has posted a lengthy interview with Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe developers Ed Boon and John Edwards. The interview questions vary from how the fatalities/brutality system work, to if the story is canon or not and even discussed how they paired up characters from each side that are similar to each other.

Here's an excerpt from the interview:

Crave Online: Do the Mortal Kombat characters have new powers?

John Edwards: Yeah, they're all still based on their theme basically. Subzero, obviously his stuff's all going to involve ice to some degree, but he does have a new teleport where he actually freezes himself into a puddle and pops out the other side. We definitely add new moves for all the MK characters as well to keep up with all the newness of the DC side.

Midway has released a new high-resolution renders of Lex Luthor and Baraka from the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Baraka looks very similar to how he has looked in the past, and Lex Luthor is inside of an updated battlesuit from the comics which has typically been given the ability to fly and been laced with kryptonite to weaken Superman.





Midway also sent us some in-game screenshots of the newly announced characters.

Another weekend brings us an additional cut-scene screenshot on Mortal Kombat co-creator Ed Boon's personal website, noob.com. Ed continues to give us a tiny look at the single player campaign of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. This screenshot shows two shadowy figures, and one is pleading for his life it sounds like over some owed money. This again shows some great use of cinematic techniques in the game, I can't wait to see the single player story unfold in game.

After last week's North American Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Kollector's Edition content was detailed, Eurogamer got information from Midway that details the European Kollector's Edition contents. It appear that they'll be getting completely different things than in North America, like a full sized Alex Ross poster and lithographs. Midway said that the details are still not final, so once we have official word we'll be sure to announce it here. Here is what Midway had to say about it to Eurogamer:

"We have a full complement of different offerings for Europe, a reward pack with a drawstring bag, comic and Alex Ross poster will be available with certain retailers; EU-exclusive t-shirts with a few partners; exclusive litho prints; and there's one last unannounced item that may be coming. Final details are being ironed out now."


Currently, UK game retailer GAME lists the "Special Edition" price at GBP 49.99 with the current release date set to Novemeber 21st, 2008 which is currently a date that Midway has not officially confirmed yet.

Senior Producer, Hans Lo and Associate Producer, Hector Sanchez are back to talk to the Mortal Kombat fanbase in the "official" MKast podcast. You can download the seventh episode at the WorldsCollide.com website.

This episode is in two parts, the first part Hans and Hector had special guest Shaun Himmerick (Former Mortal Kombat Producer.) They discussed Shaun's history with Mortal Kombat while producing games: Mortal Kombat: Armegeddon Wii, Mortal Kombat: Unchained and Mortal Kombat: Shaolin Monks. He also discussed on how what he learned during being on the Mortal Kombat team and how that has helped him with his current project Wheelman. He then goes on to tease that there is a character that'll be in both Wheelman and Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe.

The next episode of MKast should be Dave Pindara (Environemnets & Technical Lead) and Steve Beran (Art Director) according to Hector via the Midway Forums.

There is a lot more information in the "MKast" and you can listen to it here.

Today IGN posted up an interesting video profiling John Tobias creating the Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe Kollector's Edition comic. In it they talk about how John came back in to work with the MK team for the first time since his departure in 1999. John also discusses how drawing the characters again came so naturally, since he also drew comics for the first two arcade games in the series along with many pieces of concept art that was the foundation of the series.

The interesting element to the video is that the first ever pictures of the game's end boss, Dark Kahn are unveiled, and quite a bit at that. This is the first the public has seen of him since news of him broke a month ago. Go ahead and watch the video now for yourself!

of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. In the video Mortal Kombat Co-Producers Hans Lo and Hector Sanchez go over the game's new Kombat Modes: Klose, Freefall and Rage. It's the best in-depth look at these features as we'll see them in the finished game.

Also at the end of the video they'll show The Joker's new Fatality. I don't want to go give anything away, so you'll have to watch to see it for yourself. You can watch the embedded video directly below.

This morning Midway has sent along higher quality versions of the Kombat Modes feature from yesterday. The video clip goes into depth on the details of the various new fighting mechanics in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Here is how Midway describes the modes.

Freefall Kombat allows players to battle in mid-air while falling from one arena into the next. Players can fill up their meter to try and perform a super move -- but watch out or they might get countered!

Klose Kombat, a brutal up-close fighting mechanic, enhances the game's gritty visual tone through progressive damage inflicted on fighters during zoomed-in battles, with visible bruises, torn clothing, and more.

Rage Mode allows players the ultimate attack experience, releasing pent-up rage in a glowing torrent of consecutive attacks that are unable to be blocked.

So we have made a higher quality stream available below. You can also download the 720p HD clips in your format of choice directly below and also new iPhone 3G optimized clips.

Also don't forget the video has the first reveal of the second fatality for The Joker at the end of the clip. So if you don't want it to be spoiled, don't watch the full video until after you've seen it in the game.

After yesterday's fan-site exclusive sneak peeks, Midway has released all of the new screenshots of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe today. Like in their previously released video, the focus is on the three fighting mechanics of the game: Freefall Kombat, Klose Kombat and Rage Mode. Just this time in nice high detailed still shots of the action.

In the first two new shots, Rage Mode is detailed. You can see both Wonder Woman and Baraka entering Rage Mode in each screenshot. You can clearly see the yellow "aura" that surrounds the characters as they enter the mode.


In the next two you see some still images of Klose Kombat in progress. You see Baraka pummeling Death Stroke and Wonder Woman delivering Raiden a quick uppercut.



The final two screenshots show Freefall Kombat in some cityscape background, so it looks like both Gotham City and Metropolis. In one Batman and Liu Kang bust through an elevated train line. In the other Superman and Kano fall to their doom along side a number of skyscrapers.


4:35 PM CST -
IGN has posted a new video where Mortal Kombat team Senior Designers John Edwards and Paulo Garcia go over the Super and Pro Moves from Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. They go into depth on the various character's Super Moves. Also detailed are Pro Moves, which are more advanced variations on the character's regular Super Moves that require extra timing and directional and/or button presses. They are distinguished not only by variations on the regular actions, but different sounds as well. Very neat addition for the game.

You can check out the video below or head over to their site for their higher resolution copy with more detail.

The next episode of MKast has been posted. This week's episode features special guests Dave Pindara (Environemnets & Technical Lead) and Steve Beran (Art Director). They talk about the look and feel of the games and how they went about creating what they feel is the best looking Mortal Kombat game ever. It's a pretty long discussion, so share your discoveries in the comments.

Also a new Developers Blog was posted by Hector Sanchez. This blog entry is entitled "Kombo Challenge" and details the implementing of Achievements and Trophies into the game this time around.

KOMBO CHALLENGE is inherently what the name implies: a series of challenging combos for each character. Upon selecting this mode, you will be given the option of choosing the character you would like to perform as, as well as choosing your opponent (awesome) and choosing your background (awesome).

After last night's release of MKast 8 I had pondered why Midway had not yet provided a facility to easily access their MKast Podcasts via iTunes for those of us who listen to podcasts via their iPods and iPhones. It would also give a whole other way for people to come into contact with the game who come across the podcast on iTunes. Well it seems someone was thinking the same way as I, as last night Midway's "Web Monkey" dv8withn8 posted up to the Midway Boards news that it is now available on iTunes Music Store under Podcasts.


I suggest everyone with iTunes go out and subscribe to it to help boost their ranking, as there are a lot of video game podcasts out there.

Also they didn't forget all you without iTunes, they also have provided an RSS Feed for the Podcast for your favorite RSS Feed Reader. You can access that here.

Midway has sent along higher quality versions of the Super & Pro Moves feature from yesterday. The video clip goes into depth on the details of the various unique fighting mechanics in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Here is how Midway describes the modes.

Super Moves are what separates Mortal Kombat from other 3D fighters. With fighters that can teleport, shoot projectiles and cast spells, Mortal Kombat delivers the most exciting battles in fighting games today.

Pro Moves are enhanced versions of Super Moves for the hardcore players. With precise timing, players can expand their Super Moves into Pro Moves. For example, a Pro Move will launch two projectiles instead of one, inflict more damage or extend a combo beyond where it normally ends. While Pro Moves are more challenging to pull off, the rewards are also bigger.

Kotaku has come to give us a large batch of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe news this weekend. Their initial impressions are very positive after a long hands on session with the game recently, and they continue to love the game. This time they got to play a bit of the single player Story Mode for the first time. They thought the mode was really well executed, way better than they expected.
The story mode also helps explain exactly why the Mortal Kombat and DC universes are crossing over. That "Rage" mode, the reason why Captain Marvel and Green Lantern would ever fight each other, and just how Scorpion winds up in the Batcave are all explained rather elegantly through these scenes.


They also reveal a new feature, a Model Viewer that is being included with the game. So players can rotate the character models in any angle they'd like to see, something simple yet fun for the fans. They retrieved info on what some possible DLC could be. If things go well additional "alternate reality" costumes for the DC characters could be downloadable in the future. Currently they are hashing out things with DC on this idea, so keep your fingers crossed for some DLC in the future. I think a game like Mortal Kombat can really benefit from additional achievable and purchasable DLC, and I can't wait to see what Midway get out out there for us.

Kotaku also broke some controversial news that some of the fatalities in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe had to be toned down a bit to make the Teen Rating by the ESRB.

Anyway, it's been changed up a bit, toned down to just slightly less than awesome to secure that highly coveted T-rating that Midway and Warner Bros. are so adamant about. In the latest build, Joker still whips out his prank gun, a "BANG!" flag unfurling. Unfortunately, you won't see the follow up of Joker shooting someone in the face; that actually happens off screen now, the headshot safely out of sight.


This is not surprising as many games and films over time have had to make sacrifices and cuts to make a specific rating. In this case I know Midway's team tried their hardest to push the limits of that T rating. I think once the fans get their hands on the game, they'll quickly forget that the game is rated T at all when the red blood is spraying over the screen in their first fight.

The episode will be on at 8PM ET so check your local listings, but oddly enough you can also also now catch the segment below and over at X-Play's Blog.



One interesting note is Ed reveals a bit more about the online side of things in this game, mentioning there will be a lobby system that you can hang out and track and choose who you want to play. Sounds interesting, and very similar to the way things used to be in the arcade. Can't wait to see more!

Midway has sent along a higher quality versions of the Story Trailer from yesterday. The press release implies that we can expect a few more of these before the game is released.. The video clip shows the first look at the single player Story Mode of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. This is likely the video teased to us on noob.com to be coming soon. This is what Midway's press release had to say about the clip:

Today, Midway released an all-new video highlighting the Mortal KombatŪ vs. DC Universe storyline, providing a glimpse into the cataclysmic events that caused these two worlds to collide. Players can choose to live through the experience from the perspective of either the Mortal Kombat Universe or the DC Universe. The unique storyline intertwines both universes into an intensely dynamic fighting adventure. Face off in iconic areas like Metropolis and Gotham City for the DC Universe side and Hell and Graveyard from the Mortal Kombat side, as well as several never-before-seen combo arenas that blend the two universes together. 'Which Side Will You Choose?'.

This week's feature is Batman vs. Sub-Zero and Superman vs. Raiden This is what Midway's press release had to say about the clip:

This week the struggle for power ensues between Sub-Zero and Batman, while Superman and Raiden face off in bitter rivalry. Loaded with both cinematic scenes and extended gameplay footage each trailer answers the question, "What if the DC Universe was faced with Mortal Kombat?"
