Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe hands-on

By Patrick Garratt, Saturday, 12 July 2008 09:26 GMT


Gamespot’s posted a play of Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe. To sum up:

Based on what we’ve played, MK vs. DC seems to be headed in the right direction. The fighting system tweaks have a good feel to them and definitely give the action a comfortable feel. At the same time the new pro moves, or whatever they wind up being called, add a nice skill element to the action we like. Overall we’re pleased by what Midway is doing and anxious to see more, especially the story mode, to see how it all comes together. Midway reps told us that new members of the roster would be announced in the months leading up to release and tossed us two to reveal in this preview: Captain Marvel and Liu Kang. In addition, it sounds as though more characters are set to be revealed at Comic-Con. Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is slated to ship this fall for the Xbox 360 and PS3. Check back for more on the game in the coming months and tune into our live E3 show next week where we’ll have Ed Boon showing off the demo.
