    Looks like they updated MKvDC to the MK9 engine.


    Maybe we'll get a crossover MK character.

    It looks awesome.

    TIME FOR SOME BASELESS SPECULATION!

    - It looks 2d
    - I'm guessing those highly cinematic moves (punching into space) are supers
    - The stages are interactive

    Batman can kick Soloman Grundy a quarter mile through a building now?

    Calling it now, this is going to be as gimmicky a fighter as it gets.

    Power classes vs. Gadget classes with hybrids was what Boon had to say in his interview. Hopefully it gets more fleshed out.

    tbh a dc universe needs a much more fast paced game than the mk engine


    I'm very very disappointmented

    They should really consider doing a DC fighting game in vein to what MvC3 is. I think a 2D setting could provide a fresher take than making a MK vs. DC 2.0 game again.

    It's probably going to be MKvsDC, but with a better engine using MK9's engine.

    It reminds me of this.

    Granted it might not be 3D, but I seriously doubt it's going to be a competitive fighter.

    My thoughts exactly. It's gonna end up Rise of the Imperfects cut with MKvsDC.

    And as disillusioned as I am with Capcom currently, I really think going "edgy" and "Mortal Kombat" style for their characters isn't going to help this commercially. Going full on comic / cartoon styling would appeal to more people IMO.

    Sigh, why oh why can't Capcom or a good company just pony up and get the rights to Marvel vs DC? Split the costs and profits 3 ways and everyone would win huge on the biggest crossover ever. It'd have people buying it who never play fighters, and people buying it just because they're comic fans.

    And seriously, if they're gonna rip off UMvC3, rip off the art style (even if I do hate 2.5d) or the engine, not just the cinematic.

    So sad. I'd love a good fighter with the DCU involved.

    No different than the Marvel Vs series in being gimmicky. How can a street fighter or RE regular human character beat characters with the powers of a God!

    I still think MK9 is a game in the right direction, so I hope they just keep on messing with MK9's engine.

    It's seriously the closest thing to be a decent fighter.

    This is where the art style of a game is a big deal though. If you're going for a realistic look like this game clearly is, is ridiculous over the top stuff like that from a character like Batman a good idea?

    He's the apex of human potential in strategy and martial arts... I get it. But delivering a Lui Kang rising kick that throws a monster a quarter mile through a building just looks fucking dumb to me.

    If it's just going to be over the top stuff, do it in a comic styled animation IMO, if for no other reason than to pay homage to the characters. But edgy is what's in (or so NRS thinks) so that's what they're gonna get.

    I do hope this ends up being a good game, but hopefully there's more steak than sizzle. It really depends on what they do with the environments I guess. I'll keep an eye out for info on this, but I'm not holding my breath that it'll end up a competitive game by any stretch.

    Fresh in terms of the animation style and such. Hence why i feel it should be 2D instead of 3D if they're going over the top with it.

    ...or so DC thinks, and they're right. Gritty superheroes sell, and I've had enough of the cartoony fighting games. We have SF, Marvel, BB, KoF, GG, (insert anime inspired game here), Skullgirls... do we really need everything to look the same?

    You guys are really uninformed.
    MK9's engine IS the MKvsDC engine. The infamous input bug which cannot be fixed isn't a "MK9" problem but a problem from MKvsDC that moved along into MK9.

    So you want their new games to use a brand new engine, not the MK9 one. (I doubt that will happen though)

    NRS's clunky animations are more cartoony and ridiculous than anything on your list.

    Those "cartoony" fighting games would be to DC's benefit to try out rather than going all out edgy with it. The trailer was bland as hell and came off again too much like MK vs. DC.

    this game will out sell Marvel and Sf x tekken and be a fun gimick game.........because casuals will get there moneys worth and they know it and NRS has there trust.......Mk vs dc sold alot of copies for a game people shit on and created the story formula that brings in 4-5 times the sales of games with better fight systems that made mk9 a sales success

    Why? So they could follow in the path of MvC's tepid sales?

    I dunno, its distinctive, and I kind of think the problem is just that it's too different from what we're used to seeing in fighting games.

    I myself am really looking forward to this, NRS seem to be the only people out there right now who can actually make a godamn game (maybe Namco).

    Plus its a totally new series, which I fuckin' crave!

    yer because the art style was the reason why the game didn't break records right

    not the on disk dlc,lack of lobbies,lack of story,lack of modes

    it was all the style


    this game will sell well based on it will have all that good stuff that casual gamers care about

    will it actually be a good game though? prob not

    Because the art style would help in conveying the over the top nature of the game. I'm not believing for a second that Batman could kick the shit out Solomon Grundy in that trailer but if you were to show that same fight in the context of say a MvC3 type of gameplay and 2D art style, I'd be all over it.

    If you guys remember some of the old MK9 trailers Jhonny Cage's X-ray was completely different, Scorpion and Kano used to have identical throws, Sub-zero's x-ray was a full-screen ground freeze, among other things that were there as placeholders for trailers or beta builds, so there's a chance that Batman won't kick people through building in the final version.

    It will be a good game im sure. for SRK EVO competition doubt it and i really think they dont care, which im cool with .......Will it be unbalanced and have Op and cheap chars and glitches to exploit and they leave them in after maybee a patch or 2 im sure it will.........will they all have the same uppercutt and jumping in kick since mk1 is what im buying this game to see ,,,,,to BLOW my mind if they actually figured out everyone having the same moves is old and of course the loved dail o combo system

    First, I didn't say that the art style was what hurt the game's sales (although, I suspect it did because the target demo likes grit), I was responding to the claim that going gritty will hurt Injustice. If sales of other media is any indication (and it is), gritty superheroes sell better than cartoony superheroes, so this is the right choice... which is, of course, not really their choice to make, because the style guides are written and approved by DC, which is also owned by WB, but you still have to license these things even when you have the same parent company.

    Second, there is no reason to believe this won't be a good game for serious fighting game players. MK is a good game for serious players (taste aside), and that will inform their design process more than MK v DC will. Even so, it's too early to judge how this will play in competitive circles.
