, a Mortal Kombat
fan-site based out of Luxembourg
, has posted a video interview
(wmv, 55.1MB | YouTube Part I
, YouTube Part II
) with Creative Director, Ed Boon
. In this english-language interview, quite a few interesting and unknown details about Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
First off, MK vs DC Universe
will be region-free, meaning the game disc from each part of the world will work worldwide. The European PAL
versions of the game will be released at the same time as their North American NTSC
counterparts. In addition, some bad news for PAL
regions as the Limited Edition
version of the game will not be released in PAL
territories, but that has been the case for the last few releases.
The development team is shooting for two fatalities
per character. Boon
also explains that the yellow eyes
that each character has when performing a fatality
is a product of the "Rage"
angle the storyline features. The color is significant as that is the same color the glowing aura that envelops your character when you enable "Rage Mode"
In other storyline details, the collision of the two worlds is started by Superman
. The basic idea is that there are two events that happen at the same time and at the same place in the two dimensions. That starts the two universes overlapping and characters from one universe being transported to the other. The whole story deals with the characters invading each others' universe and why. Also, the end boss is a character that MK Fans
will not be familiar with and Shang Tsung
cannot morph in the game due to technical reasons.
The training mode will be more elaborate than those featured in the last two games. Also, there will not be any death traps in the arenas. Character endings
will not be in-game cinematics, but will be artwork graphics with a narrated storyline and text.
Finally, in an attempt to get at the names of hidden characters, Boon
states that Reptile
is not in Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe
. Overall a pretty interesting interview that reveals a lot of details that aren't available yet, including some details on the script of a possible new Mortal Kombat Movie
. Check it out
