Midway's kicked out the latest Mortal Kombat title to the US:

CHICAGO ? November 16, 2008 ? Midway Games Inc. (NYSE: MWY), a leading interactive entertainment publisher and developer, today announced that Mortal Kombat? vs. DC Universe has arrived on store shelves throughout North America and is available for purchase for the Xbox?360 video game and entertainment system from Microsoft, and the PLAYSTATION?3 computer entertainment system. The standard edition is available for a U.S. suggested retail price of $59.95, and the Kollector?s Edition is available for a U.S. suggested retail price of $69.95. Cultural icons collide for gamers and comic book fans alike as the eagerly anticipated face-off between heroes, anti-heroes, villains and vigilantes is unleashed in unmistakable Mortal Kombat style.

Some of the most popular characters from the DC Universe, like Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman and The Joker, go toe-to-toe against Mortal Kombat favorites, including Scorpion, Sub-Zero, Liu Kang, Sonya and more. Featuring a brand new fighting system and unique intertwining storyline written by top comics writing team Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe combines spectacular multi-tiered fighting environments, such as Metropolis or the Batcave, with a compelling line-up of fighters to challenge and master.

?Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe brings together iconic characters from both the DC Comics? and Mortal Kombat videogame universes to give gamers the opportunity to take part in extraordinary battles,? said Scott Johnson, vice president, business development, Warner Bros. Interactive Entertainment. ?Working with Midway, we are allowing fans to control the destiny of famous heroes and villains with enhanced graphics and combat.?

?Midway is proud to have been able to work so closely with the artists and visionaries at DC Comics to bring you a unique fighting experience that stays true to the hallmarks of the Mortal Kombat franchise,? said Matt Booty, president and CEO, Midway. ?With the broad market potential afforded by the T-Rating, the engaging story mode, the critical acclaim we are already seeing from reviewers, and enthusiastic support of the fans from both franchises, we expect this to be one of our most successful Mortal Kombat games.?

Although this is the first Mortal Kombat title to be given a ?T? rating by the ESRB, the game embodies all the qualities that made the franchise such an integral part of gaming culture, including the ability to perform the unique Fatalities and Heroic Brutalities that are a signature of the Mortal Kombat series. The title also features a re-vamped fighting system that harkens back to the wildly successful early Mortal Kombat games.

The special, limited-run North American Kollector?s Edition is delivered in special packaging and features an exclusive removable print designed by Alex Ross, one of the world?s most pre-eminent and respected comic book artists, as well as bonus video content and a 16-page comic book by DC Comics that chronicles the shocking, universe-shattering events that lead up to the in-game story mode.
Based on early testing we've done here at GU, it's a solid title. There are some quirks, but I'll lay it all out in the review shortly. MUCH better than some of the last few MK titles, though.
