Following fears that fatalities would be removed from Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, series creator Ed Boon has set the record straight on the issue. Basically, they’re in there, but they won’t be as brutal as they used to be.
“There was never any statement on our part that fatalities will be gone or that finishing moves will be gone,” Boon told GameTap.
“We did acknowledge that we won’t be able to do the same kinds of outrageous moves, like tearing someone’s head off and the spine being attached to it. But there are a lot of assumptions that there will be no blood in the game, that there are no fatalities in the game. It’s an assumption that, because the DC characters will be in there, those features will have to be dropped. My response is that, no, we’re modifying fatalities.
“But I have every intention to keep finishers. You know, to let gamers do a really cool secret button combination and follow with a really outrageous finishing move to end the match. The names of these moves, and the level of violence we use, are to be determined. But it’s certainly not a feature we plan on eliminating from the series.”
So now you know. The game is releasing for PS3 and 360 this autumn.
