Our European vendors returned from their New Year's holiday last week and our restock shipments of MK vs DCU have shipped. NCS expects delivery in the next few days and all backorders will ship once the game has been restocked. Thanks.

Update on December 17, 2008
  
Please note that our restock of the European version of PS3 Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe has not arrived yet and our shipment may not be delivered until after the Christmas holiday.

Update on December 5, 2008
 
   Backorders and new orders for the European version of MK vs DCU for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 will ship today. New orders are welcome.

Update on November 25, 2008
   NCS is accepting reservations for the second batch of MK vs DCU that is expected to ship in the first week of December 2008.

   The first shipment will arrive later today and earlier preorders will begin shipping to our customers this afternoon.

Update on November 18, 2008
   Please note the European version of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe has not been released yet. The game is scheduled to be released on November 20 in Europe and NCS expects our shipment to arrive on November 21 or November 24. Just to reiterate, the European version of the game has not been released yet. That is why preorders have not been processed yet.

Update on November 14, 2008
   Please note that the first batch of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe (Europe) that is expected to arrive next week is now completely SOLD OUT. Our suppliers in Europe have also met their preorder allocations and they are sold out as well. We expect another batch to arrive by the last week of November but we'll update accordingly once the second shipment is confirmed. Until that time, we are closing preorders. Thanks for reading.

NCS Preorder Synopsis
«©NCSX» In Midway's Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe, gamers finally get to answer daunting questions such as, "Can Superman beat Raiden?" and "What happens when Batman meets Kano?" These questions and more will be answered when MK vs DCU ships next week for the Playstation 3 and Xbox 360 in North America and Europe. Generally, games are the same in both territories but there'll be censoring in the U.S. version. To achieve a "Teen" rating in the States, Midway had to edit the Joker's gunshot-in-the-face fatality and Deathstroke's impale-him-then-shoot-him-in-the-head fatailty. Note that Kitana's fan-to-forehead-impaling fatality has been changed in all versions so that her fans are jammed into her opponent's chest. Seeing such heinous fictional acts would apparently traumatize the youth of North America.

    Europeans are apparently a more permissive lot as their version of MK vs DCU won't be censored. Both fatalities will make it to the production version of the game which is scheduled to ship on November 21 or 24. NCS is accepting preorders for the European edition of the game which should be in stock by November 21 or 24.

Region Free
  
The European version of MK vs DCU is region-free and may be played on any version of the Playstation 3 console hardware.

From the Publisher
   For the first time ever Scorpion, Sub-Zero and the Mortal Kombat warriors battle with Batman, Superman and other popular DC Universe superheroes. Choose your side and challenge your opponents with an all-new fighting system including Freefall Kombat and Klose Kombat along with dynamic multi-tiered environments. Plus, pick your favourite character from Mortal Kombat or DC Universe and pursue a fighting adventure in the new single-player mode with an intertwined storyline and two unique perspectives.

 
  • Choose your kombatant! Kombat forces friends to fight, worlds to collide and unlikely alliances to be forged. Mortal Kombat warriors and DC Universe heroes engage in battle for the first time on the PlayStation 3. In the ultimate Elseworlds story, players can now explore what would happen when Sub-Zero faces off against Batman, and much more.
  • Signature attacks. Each character has specific moves to take down opponents in his or her own signature style. Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe will also feature distinct finishing moves, tapping into the true Mortal Kombat experience.
  • All-new fighting mechanics. For the first time in Mortal Kombat history, players can face off with two all-new fighting mechanics, Freefall Kombat and Klose Kombat. Freefall Kombat allows players to battle in mid-air while falling from one arena into the next. Klose Kombat, a brutal up-close fighting mechanic, gives players the ability to grasp the gritty dark tone through progressive damage that is inflicted on fighters during battle through visible bruises, torn clothing, and more!
  • New single-player mode. Players choose their storyline experience beginning with either the Mortal Kombat or DC Universe. The unique storyline intertwines both the Mortal Kombat and DC Universes and characters into an exclusive dynamic fighting adventure.
  • The ultimate fighting arenas. Players will face off in various iconic arenas like Metropolis and Gotham City from the DC Universe side and Hell and Graveyard from the Mortal Kombat side, as well as several never-before-seen combo arenas that blend the two universes together!
  • Top writing talent. The game's dark, realistic tone is created through the collaborative partnership of top comics writing team Jimmy Palmiotti and Justin Gray along with veteran Mortal Kombat team members.
  • Take the battle online. Players will have the ability to choose sides, challenge friends and take the fight online!
    If you have a problem playing this game on your console
    Although Playstation 3 games are region-free, if you see an error message when loading the game, this problem is related to the high-definition video output that many PS3 games utilize. When a PAL game is played on a USA or Japanese PS3 console that is connected to a standard television via composite or S-Video cable, you will receive an error message.
     
    There is a work-around for this issue but note that a copy of "Resistance: Fall of Man" or "F1: Championship Edition" is required to perform a boot-swap. We have listed the methods below:
     
    To boot Mortal Kombat vs DCU using the Resistance boot method:
    0. Boot Resistance
    1. Play a campaign
    2. Press START in game (for the pause menu)
    3. At the pause menu, eject Resistance disc
    4. Insert the Mortal Kombat vs DCU disc
    5. Select "Save and quit" from the menu
    6. Mortal Kombat vs DCU will boot up
     
    To boot Mortal Kombat vs DCU using the F1: Championship Edition boot method:
    0. Boot F1: CE
    1. Go to multiplayer menu
    2. Select exit to main menu
    3. At the confirmation popup, swap the F1: CE disc with Mortal Kombat vs DCU
    4. Confirm the pop-up to exit to main menu
    5. Mortal Kombat vs DCU will boot
  • If you have an HDTV in your household, you can also connect the PS3 to that television and the boot methods listed above won't be necessary. The game will boot directly on an HDTV without issues.

    Regional Server

    This is to answer the inquiry about servers. The USA and UK servers are separate from each other. If you purchase this game, you'll be locked into using only the UK servers.

    NO LUCK WITH GAME BOOT
    James Alexander (Calgary) 12/7/2009 12:27 PM
    Have not been able to get this game to boot on the PS3. I have tried to boot swap with F1 Championship Edition but can not get it to work still. The instructions for how to boot with F1 does not have all too much details and I have tried everything to get this game to boot from F1. If anyone has had to do this with the F1 game, please post here to let me know the way that worked for you. Thanks.

    Quick Fix...
    Sam (Florida, U.S.) 12/3/2008 11:18 PM
    If you are playing this through component cables beware! There is a problem being that the game is in PAL format. A fix for this is available if you have a copy of Resistance: Fall Of Man. Put in Resistance and start (or continue) a campaign. Once the campaign is started, pause the game. On the pause menu, eject the game and insert the MK vs. DC disc. Select quit from the pause menu and MK v. DC will boot up. As far as the game goes, the game play is fun (not to deep, but fun none the less) and the graphics are gorgeous!
