Midway Tones Down 'MK vs. DC Universe' To Get T-Rating
Posted By: James Elkin - Tuesday, October 28, 2008 3:08 PM

Bad news Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe awaiters, Midway has gone back and toned down the violence in an attempt to keep it teen friendly. Apparently, their standard teen is of the “Aw Shucks, Gee Whiz” variety.

Coveting a T-rating, Midway has focused on the fatalities, most tragically moving the best one in years off screen. Yes, the Joker’s “gag-bullet-followed-by-hearty-laugh-followed-by-genuine-bullet-to-the-face” will no longer be seen in its entirety. We’ll let you guess which part in the sequence they’ve slid off the tube. (Hint: it’s the real bullet to the face part.)

Will all this teen friendliness mean more in sales? Who knows. Will it mean that longtime fans could be disappointed? Chances are… good.

Senior Producer Hans Lo and Associate Producer Hector Sanchez discuss the new fighting mechanics in their new game, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, which releases on November 16, 2008 for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3.

In addition to franchise staples like Fatalities and special moves, the new title will also include three distinct gameplay additions. They are:

  • Freefall - Mid-air combat as combatants fall from one level of the arena down to another with a chance for massive damage on the way down.
  • Klose - A close-range brawl that lets fighters beat each other up in a mini-guessing game. If the enemy guesses your button press correctly, they'll counter out of your attack. Make sure to vary your attacks.
  • Rage - By building up a super meter, players can unleash their "Rage" and get 5-7 seconds of powered up attacks and increased defense.
