Good news for you MK fans: fatalities will be returning to Mortal Kombat after all.
Speaking in this Gamespot interview, Ed Boon's confirmed that all of the Mortal Kombat characters and DC villains will have fatalities, whilst the DC heroes will have 'brutalities', because they're goodies and aren't allowed to kill people.
Brutalities will function exactly like fatalities, but without killing the opponent, so you'll get to see Batman beating the hell out of the likes of Scorpion, which is always great.
When Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe was announced, Mortal Kombat fans were, to put it lightly, a bit miffed on the hazy future of the much-loved, really-brutal fatalities Mortal Kombat is known for.
If you've ever played a Mortal Kombat game, you can't possibly have missed just how violent and gory it was, and the fatalities were always the goriest and bloodiest parts of the "experience" - whether it was impaling opponents on spikes or breaking them into little pieces, it was always full of blood.
So rest easy. Everything's fine.
Thanks, Gaming Today.
