Jeff Buckland reports:
''Midway surprised a lot of gamers a few months ago with the announcement of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, especially since the last MK game was billed at least in some way to be the final game in the series. But it seems that it was successful enough for the publisher to move on, admittedly with a new focus of crossing over their characters with that of the comic book world.
That's not to say that putting comic book characters into a fighting game is some kind of ridiculous or useless concept, as Capcom has been doing it successfully for years with X-Men vs Street Fighter and on to the Marvel vs Capcom series. And now, that "other" fighting game franchise (back before there were a ton of them at least) has teamed up with that "other" comic book publisher, and the result feels surprisingly fresh.''
