Mortal Kombat and DC Comics fans alike have been spoiled today, as Midway released a whole heap of media to quench our thirst while we await the release of Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.



First up comes the official release of the screenshots that were distributed among the six most popular fan sites. Hot on the heels of our exclusive Baraka and Deathstroke shot comes five more images, featuring Wonder Woman, Raiden, Scorpion, Baraka, Liu Kang, Batman, Kano and Superman engaging in various kombat modes.


Next up comes a further two screenshots, which shows off the game’s Practice mode. Within this mode players will have the option to take part in a Kombo Challenge, which will help them learn about the game’s expansive combo system.

Hans Lo and Hector Sanchez take up the microphone this week, as episode eight of the highly popular MKast is published after a hiatus. Joining the boys this week are Art Director Steve Beran and Technical Art and Environmental Lead Dave Pinrada. As always, the panel answer a few questions, and talk about the world of Mortal Kombat.

Finally, two new videos have emerged on IGN and GameTrailers, which showcase never-before-seen footage of the kombatants’ special moves and finishing moves. The first video, titled Super Moves/Pro Moves sees Senior Designers John Edwards and Paulo Garcia explain how advanced users can take advantage of the new Pro move system to formulate their own intricate combos.

The second video, labelled Finishing Moves, shows off three finishing moves from the game, including those of Green Lantern, Raiden and The Flash. To view either of the movies, click on the thumbnail images above.
