Over the years Capcomâ€™s street fighters have faced a wealth of new faces to pummel, from Marvel Superheroes to SNKâ€™s lesser known brawlers. Midway have now decided to make a belated jump on the crossover bandwagon, with Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe. Shame it wasnâ€™t DC Thomson Universe – we could have had Scorpion fighting Minnie the Minx.
Notice something odd about this trailer? Thatâ€™s right – thereâ€™s no blood. Series creator Ed Boon has also told the press that there wonâ€™t be any fatalities either, presumably because DC wonâ€™t take well to seeing Batmanâ€™s head being ripped off. Arial combat looks fun though.
The worrying thing is how unbalanced the characters are going to be. Sure, Sub Zero vs Batman seems a fair enough fight… but against Superman? Not a chance.
