Midway has announced that Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe will be available to buy in North America on November 16th. Euro gamers will have to wait until Nov 21st to get their fix of Superman's 'Brutality'.
On the off chance you are unaware of what to expect, MK vs DC pits the goody-two-shoes DC heroes (Superman, Batman, et al - plus a couple of villains) against the altogether more violent Mortal Kombatants in a slightly less bloody than usual Kombat tournament.
By the looks of things, the Alex Ross illustrated Kollectors Edition will be out at the same time as the vanilla flavour, which will hopefully reduce the amount of time I will be required to spell C-words with a K - at least until the next installment.
