The Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe DLC That Could've Been

Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe's roster of "kombatants" was missing some key names on both sides. That was something series co-creator Ed Boon and the MK team had hoped to address with downloadable content, which never happened.

Boon had hinted at appearances from characters like Kung Lao and Doomsday in interviews, showing designs for one MK Vs. DC character that was planned for release, Quan Chi, first introduced in Mortal Kombat 4. The MK team lead released a render of the Mortal Kombat character via his Twitter today.

Will we ever see characters like Lobo, Quan Chi and [insert your favourite MK/DC character]added to the crossover fighter? According to Boon, "right now I don't see it happening," despite the fact that he writes those additional downloadable characters were "just about done."

With work progressing on Mortal Kombat 9 and Mortal Kombat Vs. DC Universe now eight months old, we'd guess that Midway and new owners Warner Bros. won't see the value in dedicating more resources to such a thing. Shame.


    was it even a good game? the gameplay videos looked bad so i never bothered

      no, not really. it was pretty pathetic IMO. i played it for about an hour then returned it. thanx eb's for the 7 day hire policy ;)

    I've enjoyed it.
    The fighting and controls felt very accessible (simple).
    The graphics weren't stellar, but it wasn't dire either.
    The character and level designs were quite good.
    The single player story mode was very impressive and kept me interested.
    As a fighter, MK vs DC perhaps isn't top tier.
    As an MK game though, it's worth at look IMO.

    Mortal Kombat 9? That has to be trolling...Their CAN'T be a 9!

    i thought the game was alright there could of been things done better. 1. fatalities could be easier the littlest mistake and it wont work. 2. maybe threw a 3rd fatality in there like a animality. 3. put like 5 more characters for each side in there, cause i got bored quick with a lot of characters. I was a little upset that johnny cage and reptile weren't there. I would of also put kung lao, goro, and nightwolf. For dc maybe robin, doomsday, scarecrow
