In continuing anticipation of Injustice: Gods Among Us coming next month, let’s have a look at the Flash’s appearance in 2 more tournament fighting games, Mortal Kombat v. DC Universe (“MKvDC”) on Xbox360 and PS3, and the fan-made MUGEN on PC.
Pictured above: The Flash punching out Quan Chi with the psychic aid of Liu Kang in Mortal Kombat v. DC Universe. The story that just had to be told.
For a quick demonstration of the Flash in MKvDC, here is a video of the Flash’s Kombo Challenge where he beats down Captain Marvel.
As you will see there, the Flash is super cool in Mortal Kombat v. DC Universe. All of his moves have a beautiful motion blur and multiple hits. This makes him a blast to play, as you can rack up big combos effortlessly and dash around the screen instantaneously to really make it look like you’re toying with your opponent. Speed is the Flash’s thing, in both his normal attacks and special moves, which sets him apart from something like his appearance in Justice League Task Force. For once, a speedster character is done right in a tournament fighting game. I would even call it monumental.
