Contained within a Midway press release stating that Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe has shipped 1.8 million units, MK co-founder Ed Boon revealed that the team are already hard at work on another game.
Awesome news, this should be good enough for Midway to pay off their debts and hopefully learn from this ordeal and focus on quality over quantity.
loll i dont think its enough to pay their debts I hope they make a brand new Mortal kombat like it should have been from the start... with better combo system and not that robot one
Doesn't anyone else miss the gore? To me, that is what made Mortal Kombat
Totally agree Mr Bun. Mortal Combat without gore is like Madden without passing.
I sure hope their next MK will be a glorious return to MK1 and MK2 times. Dark humour, gore, no respect for life, bah, full disrespect for life. I miss good'ol' MKs. Personally I would like some more mature games. Playing the same games with kids in my nephew's age is a bit weak... Mortal Kombat 15+? Come on... I'm not gonna swallow that.
Daver: Do the math, also include TNA Impact and the causal line up Midway released in Q4 which did extremely well.
I hope they make the new MK like the were talkin (and working on) before they made MKvsDC. A MK that is darker and grittier and that will reboot the series.
They need to bring what people in here already said... gore, better combo system and plz.... make good fatality's like in the old days :/
I'm a long time MK fan I remember playing the first MK on my Genesis. The first fatality I saw changed my life. MK 3 was the best by far. Played 4 and Deadly Alliance as well. With modern tech it seems ridiculous to keep making the characters more and more cartoony. MK has a whipped horse for along time now here's how to fix it. 1. Bring back realistic actors like in MK 1-3. 2. Bring back Brutalities. 3. Bring back the Run feature from MK3. 4. Keep the multi-tiered environments. 5. Bring back the weapons feature from 4 that allowed you to smash your enemy face first into the screen. 6. Drop the stupid Quest mode 7. Keep the puzzle and chess mode 8. Bring back "Toasty" 9. Bring good ending cinematic's instead of the ridiculous story boards 10. Keep the crypt but use it for things like character upgrading 11. Make music that makes you want to kill. (harder)
In a fighting game, the gameplay is all that matters. I want those things you listed as well, but I've had the most hardcore sub-zero vs scorpion fights I've ever had with this new engine. Speaking strictly from a gameplay perspective I think this is the second best MK game ever behind MKII.
dude i was thinking the same thing if the next mortal kombat is not a 18 like the other past ones i am not buying it!!!!!!! MK Vs Dc Universe was a 15 btw!!!!!!
I enjoyed MKvsDC but I really hope this is a true MK sequel, with true Fatalities. The Next MK needs: -More diverse moves for each character (not more button combination)because each character still have the same punch/kick moves. -Bring Create a Character back, that will top SoulcaliburIV -Secret guess appearances from other FIGHTING games, SC, TK, DOA, SF, KOF, KI etc -Better single player story with a NEW Never before seen Boss being the threat. -Better online play (Tournaments, online Survival challenge, Online world tour mode) -Better Fatalities. Fatalities have become pretty silly in the past few games. And where the hell is Shaolin Monks2?
the only thing I enjoyed about MK vs DC was the story mode... the next MK game ...needs to follow the SF4 route.and go back to wat made the franchise so great and stop with the whole robotic feel to the combo system
I agree m8, the whole lets imrove the graphics and add another 10 or so moves (button combination combos) is getting boring and is making the animation systme in pace feel really boring. Bring back the days of MKIII (Trilogy)!!! And whilst there at it add in a decent enough story for each character ala Tekken, SC etc.. and a whole lot of unlockable features other than character art, and dev diarys. Still possibly my fav 2d fighter of all time. :D Ever since (in my opinion) the series has went 3d, it hasnt bn up to scratch in comparison to other games that made the jump, or to those that were born in the 3d generation.
Hopefully this new one won't suck.
I wanna get a Shaggy and kill Kitana witha a magic-brownie "Scoobality".
I like the fatalities in Mortal Kombat but i couldnt get accustomed to the fighting system. I was more into Street Fighter and King of Fighters, but its just me and this will be good news for MK fans everywhere.
How about bringing it out in the arcade only. I'd like to see something bring back the cades here in the US......
...has all the Mortal Kombat characters and now guest stars from other figthing games. Just focus on Mortal Kombat for a change!! A great adventure mode that's better than the one in Deception. Don't need that create a character...I hate to see all those lame costum characters that people create and think that they are cool. A great online mod would be awsome too. And a huge roster of characters. Like in Armageddon.
Nope it sold that many copies on both systems combined if you go and check out the vg chartz. Even a sony rep if I can find the link said that the game was a good seller for their system lol
vg chartz would be the last place to check anything... I skipped it cause of the T rating. No dumbed down MK for me.
I didn't buy this one, but I loved the previous gen MK games. Is it worth getting? I loved the weapon and multiple style in Deception and Armageddeon, is it here too? Or has it been cut back? EDIT: I just thought, they should totally include Vin Disel in the next one as a secret character because of The Wheelman, isn't that Midway?
Good. Maybe we can have a REAL Mortal Kombat now that the teenagers and casuals got theirs?
Give us the 2D gameplay back. For the past decade they have been releasing these 3D MK games and they all fail to have the gameplay formula in MK2 and UMK3 that made MK an amazing fighting game. We get these fighting games at least every 1-2 years and they are short lasting and the gameplay sucks and it's extremely broken.
What game have you been playing mk vs dc does have the 2d feel. Then you say you wish it was more like MK2 and UMK3, well if you really played this game you would notice that this game plays exactly like MK2 and UMK3 combined. I have played and own every single MK game that has come out and yes even the old tiger electronic game Lol and this game is one of their best ones yet. The reason people hate on it is because it has Dc characters in it, which I did not mind since I'm a huge Dc comics fans as well. If it sucked it would not have sold as many copies as it did, even the dude that was pissed about the announcement of this game and went on to rip the game on youtube had to take back all that he said about this game when it came out because of how fun it is lol
I didn't buy this last MK game because I didn't think it was a real MK game. I've been a fan since the early '90's. It's redemtion time for Ed Boon or the MK francise is done for good IMO. I want blood & gore back along with some nice fatalities. No more kreate-a-fatality crap.
Yeah people said when this Mk was released it flopped and it would be the end of the MK series and guess what it did not flop and they are making another lol
Mortal Kombat vs Looney Tunes?
Midway needs everything it can get
They BETTER make it a seriously gory game with a fat M and only MK characters.
YEEEEEEEEESSSS! Mortal kombat vs DC is excellent, anyone who hasnt got this game i advise you to get it now, so looking forward to the next game
At least they made kitana sexier in mk vs dc. I just hope they make the females in mk more sexier then they did in the other mk, because they looked really manly sometimes.
