"Things are changing in the Mortal Kombat universe. The game has been through quite a few iterations over the last 15 years, but the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe will be the most jarring: It adds superheroes, and eschews the game's traditional Mature branding.
Instead, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe, which is due in November, will come with a relatively wholesome Teen rating.
I've long given up trying to make any sense of the Mortal Kombat franchise, so a crossover with comic book characters is just fine by me. But isn't there something a little hypocritical about sanitizing a series that was all about corrupting kids before videogame violence was cool?"
