Linkage: Velocity and MK vs. DC

Various news bits today:

For their part, [senior designer Brian] Lebaron did say that Midway is trying to push the line as much as possible, both with DC and with the ESRB (the game is set to be rated T): he showed us a Scorpion fatality against the Flash where Bart Allen (at least we saw him as Bart Allen — when we asked Lebaron which Flash he was, Midway said they weren’t choosing a certain one) fell to the ground, his costume and skin charred and burned.

Flash Video in MK vs. DC

Game Trailers TV has posted an episode on Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe. Most of the 21-minute episode is a “making of” feature on MK vs. DCU, with interviews and video clips showing various characters in battle: Superman vs. Sub-Zero, Flash vs. Sonya, Batman vs. Scorpion, and more.

There’s a little about the storyline: cataclysmic events occur in both the DC and Mortal Kombat that result in the worlds merging (it’s called “Worlds Collide” after all), and each set of characters thinks the other is responsible.

Flash Confirmed for Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe

Reader Ungenesis pointed me to a set of images which confirm the presence of The Flash in the upcoming video game, Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe.

The costume isn’t quite one of the standard variations.  It’s got the V-shaped belt like Wally West’s, but the cutout on the boots is reminiscent of Bart Allen’s costume as Kid Flash, and the yellow armbands are entirely new. Edit: And as Ungenesis points out below, the gloves are yellow as well, another variation that doesn’t appear in any of the standard flash costumes — though it can be found in several alternate reality designs, including the original Earth-3 Johnny Quick, Ms. Flash, Earth-D’s Tanaka Rei and others.

Judging by the forums at Worlds Collide, the official site for the game, the images were probably scanned from the UK’s XboX 360 Magazine.

Update June 25: More screenshots have been released (available from CBR and elsewhere), including this one, which shows a much clearer view of the Flash’s costume:
