MK vs DCU Full Roster

After months of leaking minor details, Midway have released the full list of characters from both opposing forces from November’s Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe next-gen game.

Mortal Kombat
Shang Tsung
Liu Kang
Shao Kahn
DC Universe
Green Lantern
The Joker
Shazam (Captain Marvel)
The Flash
Wonder Woman
Lex Luthor

I’m quite unfamiliar with the MK characters, but the DCU cast look great, although slightly tweaked. You can visit the official site for more info, including some fantastic looking hi-res pics of most of the combatants, including Wonder Woman (above), Green Lantern and Deathstroke (below).

DC on Your PC (oh, and Marvel too)

This is a good year for gamers. The biggest gaming con E3 recently showed new footage including the inspired Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe game, which has you beating up MK characters as Superman, Batman, Flash, Catwoman and many others. It’s coming to the XBOX 360 and PS3 in November. Any chance to play as DC characters is great in my book, which will become even more intense with the DC Universe Online game. The trailer is great and a hi-res version can be seen here. Unfortunately it’s only for PS3 and PC players. Hopefully it will eventually make its way to the XBOX too. A release date has yet to be announced. Switching comic book companies, Marvel were set to launch their own MMO too, but it has since been canceled. Oh, what might have been… Marvel zombies can rest assured in the knowledge that the famous web-swinger will score yet another game though. Spider-Man: Web of Shadows is coming in October for all consoles. Fighting as Spidey is always a treat with the aerial gymnastics and swinging through cities with utter freedom. There’s nothing like it.
