Mortal Kombat vs DC To Be Rated Teen

Ripten's Jon Christensen writes:

"About a week ago we received the news that Mortal Kombat vs. DC was in fact going to have Fatalities. While this remains the case, in a interview with with Ed Boon stated that he may at some point be interested in publishing another M rated Mortal Kombat game in the future.

"…I also wouldn't rule out doing another M rated Mortal Kombat game."

That pretty much guarantees that this next installment of the MK universe will be rated teen. Some of you might be asking "how can the game include fatalities if it's rated T?" The answer is simple– they will likely tame them. "

Mortal Kombat is probably one of the main reasons ESRB's rating system existed in the first place, if this story is true, then they'd better make up for the downgrade, still have hope for this one, even though it's quite bleak.

I didn't expect this, but it doesn't surprise me. DC Comics wants kids to play the game with their characters in it.

It would be nice if there could be two versions though.

Like I said before, a T-rated Mortal Kombat is a game I will not buy. There will be better T-rated fighting games available in the near future. Mortal Kombat is meant to be M-rated.

...and I thought my expectations couldn't get any lower.

Thanx for thinking about us Mortal Kombat fans Midway. Great way to sh!t on your dwindling fanbase and ruin a once critically acclaimed franchise. I almost scared to ask what they will do next.

I really hope their next installment is MK vs the Care Bears. Seems like its the perfect fit for their new direction.
