Please don't have a T rating... Please don't have a T rating...

Especially considering the whole premise of this setting. Fatalities would be awesome. I'm interested enough to keep my eye on it. Not a day one buy though unlike MK games.

I don't read comics, but I wonder if this will use the New 52 character designs... 'cus I wouldn't really know.

I didn't realize Solomon Grundy had green blood...I can't wait to see the inevitable Joker Trailer! Also the inevitable Lanterns trailer! Also the inevitable JLA trailer!

While I'm excited about the upcoming game, I really hope there's a wide variety of unlockable costumes...I just don't care for the armored look (even if it is the only thing keeping Flash from surviving re-entry)

I really look forward to this! Since this is it's own game the roaster can really be beefed up. Also, since this is a nether realms game, we can already assume that The Lanterns will be this games ninja-clones!

I'm hoping it's given the M...also that bit in the trailer of Solomon Grundy pulling a slab of concrete out of his...gut looked pretty bloody.

Did.... Did Superman just spike Flash into the ground from Orbit for a Hyper/Super?

Must not buy....

Yeah this game is going to stress a lot of nerdy DC fans, I am reasonably nerdy and for instance I know that though Batman is the best (in my opinion) but he would not be able to kick Solomon Grundy up through 3 floors of a building, I suppose it could be justifiable if he had some sort of hydraulic bat boot or something.
The super heroes are unbalanced for instance Harley quinn would have no chance against Superman, so stuff if she manages to beat up supey that will not be realistic (comic realistic)so it is not very true to the source material.

I don't really care though it looks like a fun game with an amazing redesign on the super heroes, the art in this game looks fantastic.

I will say though if those characters are the only ones in the game, then that is beyond poor. Although I am unfamiliar with fighting games, it does seem highly unlikely that would happen.

What I really want to do but I doubt will happen is to play as the gay green lantern, but massively camp. With scenes of him soaring over the city, pulling off a mid flight camp hand :)

if there be fatalities in this game, I shall get it.

Because nothing would be more hilarious than crushing Auqaman's head as Superman, Batman, or the Flash.

*Sees Harley's name in the character roster, squeals like a Twlight fan-girl*
*Sees her character model, dies a little inside.*

Sounds cool, I'll have to keep an eye out for this.

The trailer made me instantly want to buy the game, if that is any indication of anything.

Consider me hyped.

This means we will finally know who wins in a fight: Batman or Superman

Wait, people actually debate that?

'Cause my money would be on the one that can move faster than light and push planets around. Seems like a pretty safe bet.

Ahem allow me to put my nerd glasses on. But In the comics they have fought like 6 times and batman has won 4.

I know theres alot of MK nay sayers, but look at MK9! its the only fighting game that has kept me occupied for months! you know why? Content! content content content! Theres just so much to do other than just practising combos over and over, I have high hopes for this game as it is in the hands of a Developer who can make a game that isnt stuck in the arcade era.

Please no "My Superpowers are stronger" Trophy tho lol..

You'd think there'd be at least ONE person who'd want to take over the world and NOT be a total bastard about it.

Sometimes that can be Lex Luthor's thing. He wants to take over the world because he honestly believes he could do a better job of it. The other times he's a crazy bastard who just likes to fuck shit up.

Honestly? This could be pretty good. MK vs DC and the new MK were both good quality fighting games. They had good, fluid controls, combat really flowed, they a decent number of combos and as far as fighters go a pretty damn good story mood tht didn't just take half an hour to beat and got you familiarised with most of the roster. The only problem with MK vs DC was it lacked staying power. Once you completed the story (and got all the arcade mode endings if that's your thing) it didn't offer much besides pretty crappy online play. They need to get their shit together and get decent online this time around.

Batman's gonna feel broken and stupid though. No offence to the fans I just think Batman feels more like a character from Vertigo than DC. I mean people can talk about Batman's "preptime" all they want but really at least Superman has a magic off switch. Captain Marvel, Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Martian Manhunter should all be able to knock Batman around without breaking a sweat but Deus Ex Machina Bullshit usually lets Batman hold his own. Seriously Batman can come up with a plan if he wants but pretty much every DC character realistically would snap him like a twig long before he could do anything. Superman, Flash and captain Marvel could punch him into the sun in the blink of an eye. Green Lantern could win literally as quick as he can think of how he wants to win. And this is a straight up fighting game, a guy who fights with the strength of a normal guy is going to get turned into a pile of porridge if he goes up against Solomon Grundy in a straight fight.

Well if he was going up against Green Lantern it wouldn't exactly be a straight fight now would it?

In the words of Bro Team, Fucking Zing.

OT: Cool, Its like MK VS DC only with the DC.

Aw, it's a fighter.

For a few glorious moments I was imagining an interesting story where a bunch of superheroes say "Fuck this" and set about installing themselves as modern god-kings.

And next you're going to tell me a raccoon couldn't punch out the Incredible Hulk.

One word. Preptime.

Also Sups gave Batman a kryptonite ring just incase he went crazy

That all assumes that Superman is going to be an idiot and go for a straight punch up with Bats. If S-man was smart (and he is) he just do something like grab some asteroids from the belt and orbital bombard Batman into oblivion.

When it comes down to it, prep time just doesn't cut it when your enemy not only knows that you're prepping but also has powers untoward of a god on steroids. The only reason why the Dark Knight has every beaten the Man of Steel is because the writers wanted him to win, as realistically this versus match is like a titmouse going up against the Death Star. Batman is going to lose. Period.

Aside: BTW I hate to be a language nazi, but "preptime" is two words, not one

Oh, cool! There's never been a Mortal Kombat game with DC characters before.

DC again? Since they are owned by Warner Bros. doesn't that mean they have the rights to a shit load of movie characters? Cause a fighting game full of movie villains would be a helluva lot more interesting.

You'd think so. But then Frank Miller thought he was clever and all the teenagers that read DKR thought THEY were clever and "grew" up to become the creative staff and Batman morphs from beaming courage at Superman during Crisis on Infinite Earths (because as you've noted what exactly does a man in a Batsuit contribute to a fight Superman is barely hanging in) to an indulgent pissing match (because of the inherent allure of anyone could be Batman, regardless of how true that allure is) where the cool Batman puts the alien in his place.

I mean yes Batman with prep can make life difficult for Superman. It's REALLY too bad Superman has never, EVER faced a supersmart human with the resources of a small nation, knowledge of his personal weaknesses, a psychological fixation on destroying him, and indefinite and one-sided planning in hopes of defeating him...

The writers also have to ignore the fact that Superman fights a supersmart, dedicated, rich A-hole willing to do ANYTHING to defeat him, and still, for the most part comes out on top.

Intriguing concept, but not $60 worth of intrigue. I detest fighting games, so I'm going to pass on this one.

Also, Flash with body armor makes me conflicted.

Well this actually looks promising.

Still, fighter games like this need some good gameplay vids before I buy anything related.

There are, but no one goes to see the movies with them in it.

Wait, wait, wait, did Batman just punch Solomon Grundy through a building? That would be Batman, the guy who has no powers, none whatsoever, punching Solomon Grundy, the huge hulking zombie made of pure muscle and bone (and...knives, apparently) through a building. Like, all the way through and out the other side.
Huh.
Game, do you actually understand the characters you're featuring? Could you not have him do some sort of ninja thing? Or hell, just call down a missile strike from the Batwing or some killsat Wayne Industries inevitably owns if you wanted something big and bombastic.

Also, Batman design totally reminds me of the Justice Lord version of himself from the Justice League cartoon, with the silver armour (?) highlights and everything

Have to feel sorry for the Flash, whose only job in this trailer is to get beaten up by the other guys. Seriously, he appears getting shot by ice, getting the shit kicked out of him by Batman and then getting punched into orbit then back down to earth again by Superman. C'mon guys, give the man something cool-looking to do!

Great idea, because Mortal Kombat vs DC was such a huge success!

/sarcasm

Wait, is this essentially Mortal Kombat 9 DC Comics style? Because if it is, awesome.

On the subject, any other (new) fighting games out there that function the same way as MK9? As in, completely 2D fighting gameplay, straight up combos and stuff? Tried stuff like SoulCalibur, but it's just pissing me off, I prefer 2D fighters.

banthro:
I feel sorry for Aquaman... Him and the Batman villains, because if Batman can beat them (and he has no powers) God knows what Superman could do.

Aquaman isn't as gimped of a super hero as most people make him out to be. Especially not after the reboot. He's basically the ocean's version of earlier Superman. He can swim super fast underwater, leap huge distances on land, has a bulletproof scale armor chestpiece, can mind control sea creatures and has an amazing level of strength.
