    Well it was rumoured and it appears to be true.

    According to this website, Midway has confirmed that its true and less than an hour ago someone from Midway contacted Kotaku to say that it features "no fatalities and little-to-no blood".

    So you won't see the likes of Batman or Martian Mahunter without limbs. I see no point in a MK game without the over the top childish gore that its famous for. Shameless cash in really. Also Capcom have done the old "our best fighter vs comics" thing before.

    It seems fake but I wouldn't put it past it since Marvel Vs Capcom was a big hit and now DC/Midway want to hit up that cash cow.

    Althought I went to the website in the picture below "KOMING SOON"

    And its a dead end. "www.worldscollide.com"

    I'd also think since they always change the "C" to a "K" it would have been. "www.worldskollide.com" then again i'm no expert, this is just my opinion that its fake.

    Well 1up said that when the new MK is announced it'll sound like a late April Fools joke.

    I'd love it to be fake actually, there is just no point in a MK without the fatalities plus adding DC characters just doesn't make any sense at all, pure cash in to me.

    Marvel, DC's rival, had two very successful fighters under it's belt and they were crossovers. It's really not that unnatural to think that they'd want to do one as well.

    DC has more than enough:

    Batman (Not exactly super powered, is more of a detective and uses his mind more than combat but does know many martial arts.)
    Wonder Woman
    Black Canary
    Flash (not much of a fighter, he just runs fast.)
    Green Arrow (again not much of fighter)
    Martian Manhunter
    Green Lantern
    Blue Beetle
    Catwoman
    Captain Marvel
    V
    Superman
    Hawkman

    Plus many others and then of course you have the many many enemies especially Batman's. For me they just don't suit the world at all plus most wouldn't actually kill hence why there are no fatalities.

    WOW! Well I was totally wrong. Oh well wasn't the first time I was.

    Actually the game actually didn't look half bad looked pretty sweet actually. Its just the combination of franchises just bothers me LOL.

    Lol, that's sadly true. However, I'd prefer Batman over many Marvel heroes.

    If someone put V in a game, David Lloyd and Alan Moore would probably hire an assassination team to kill them.


    amd most of those other people are just meh, I mean superman? come on now, he can just fly over his opponent and shoot him with his laser eyes, or blow them away with his breath.

    He has beat him in a few comics I've read, all he needs is Kryptonite and that's that.

    I hope Robin is in this so I can beat the little shit.

    They better do a nice job with this one, the marvel fighting games have been really successful, but yeah, MK without fatalities sounds even more pointless than the regular MK.

    I'm kinda annoyed at the "No Fatalities = No Mortal Kombat" thing. There is an actual game in the Mortal Kombat series, you know. The fatalities are little 30 second segments at the end of each fight, which a lot of people I know don't even both doing them. The series became much better with the leap to 3D. Deception is my favorite actual fighter to date, I don't particularly care what others think.

    This is a Mortal Kombat game without fatalities. And it happens to have DC Characters in it. Now think about it - Put the Joker in the game. Batman vs. Joker. In a Mortal Kombat game. How could that be anything but greatness?

    It looks really good. But teasers and trailers always look good. So I won't be expecting much until the game actually comes out. Gonna get my cousin to buy it. I don't own a 360.
