While competing franchise Soul Calibur roped in Yoda and Darth Vader and roster, Mortal Kombat has decided to go extreme by tying in with none other than the DC Universe itself. While this was supposedly rumoured to be in the past, fansite Mortal Kombat Online has hard facts on this, as well as the poster you see above.
Amusingly, the site mentioned on the poster appears to be dead as of this writing.
Hit the jump for some extra info.
Nicknamed ‘Mortal Kombat 8’, this version of MK will supposedly feature many new characters and only a few returning ones. The big news is of course, that your favourite DC characters will be joining the fray. Batman appears to be confirmed here, but we would also expect the likes of Superman and (gasp) Wonder Woman!
Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe is based on the Unreal Engine 3 and will arrive this year for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360. No word on a PC version as of yet.
