Next Mortal Kombat "VS" Type?

While the Mortal Kombat universe has been dormant for the last few months, aside from the smattering of news about Ultimate Mortal Kombat for Nintendo DS, The guys over at TRMK have seen some signs of activity at the house of Mortal Kombat. Lately, they have started to hear a few rumblings around the Chicago-based developer in regards to the next title in the Mortal Kombat franchise, aka Mortal Kombat 8. The MK Team has in the past gone on the record in stating the the next Mortal Kombat game for this generation's consoles will feature a totally reinvented formula than the previous console-specific Mortal Kombat titles. Recently, the direction that Midway is considering on taking their most prized franchise has started to take shape.

The story is too old to be commented.

So i can perform a finishing move on one of the grumpy Fudgehogs that like to start fights.

Do not stray too far from what made the MK franchise what it was and is. MK with no fatalities is like Link with no Zelda. I hope is wont be a vs game. Please Mr. Boon..... Please. This game is a must have for me, please don't disappoint.

Add animalities, babalities, hara kiris, friendships, brutalities and other finishing moves besides fatalities. Also add more interactivity to the finnishing moves the way it happened with Armageddon.

And by the way, Mortal Kombat FTW, screw the haters.

I'm completely with you. MK FTW! Screw the haters.

Bubbles for you.

OMFG, Mortal Kombat news! MK news! After the horrible MK MMO rumors and other things, I want to see more of the darker Gears-ish MK NOW.
And both DC and Marvel are too childish compared to MK. Maybe Virgin characters might be a better choice (The Preacher Vs Johnny Cage!).

Superb, amazing news TotalEklypz. I know it's unusual but I'm crazy about any MK news so bubbles for you :)

Mortal Kombat VS DC would completely ruin the series. DC Comic characters are colorful, and not as gory as Mortal Kombat. Seriously, adding an established IP to renew the franchise will work for the opposite; it will dilute it and in the worst case, exterminate it. I just don't think that MK and DC are as compatible as SF was with Marvel.

Mortal Kombat needs more game genres to stay alive as a valuable IP, not just fighting games. Shaolin Monks and Mythologies were great. They should release the Jax/Sonya PS1 game on PSN/XBLA for starters.
