Batman and Sub-Zero duke it out

As promised earlier, more content for the upcoming Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe title has been placed on the interweb. This trailer features Batman taking on Sub-Zero in what can only be described as just plain cool.

MK creator Ed Boon explained the plot in a recent interview. The game’s story takes in two perspectives. On one hand, you have MK characters against invading DC characters, and DC characters against invading MK characters on the other. Something supernatural happens that collides the two worlds together. As a result of this, some of the stronger characters like Superman have become vulnerable to normal attacks. Some of the more normal characters have gotten stronger to take on their god like opponents.

So far the only four officially announced characters that will make an appearance are Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Superman, and Batman. As the trailer suggests, there will be a different fighting mechanic in different situations. Boon says fighting while falling will be different than when you’re on the ground.

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe will grace the PS3 and Xbox 360 in the Fall.
