Did you enjoy the rebirth of Mortal Kombat? Well, NetheRealm Studios is taking that same engine and implementing that into a fighting game featuring DC Heroes. Only time will tell if this will be better than the MK vs DC Universe from a few years back. This game will lack the gore that Mortal Kombat had, however. But simply using the MK graphics and fighting engine should make this a good title. Warner Brothers released this morning the following information with a release date of April 16th for the PS3 and Xbox 360. It was earlier listed for the Wii U, but it looks like for now that is not the case. I do not know if there are no plans for a release on the U, or if they are pushing that back. I personally don't see a reason why this shouldn't come out on the U. Anyways, here's the information.
