Midway hawking Mortal Kombat rights

Bankruptcy blow could be a fatality.

Troubled publisher Midway is thought to have put the rights to the Mortal Kombat series up for sale in a last-ditch effort to save the company.

Midway Games sold for USD 100,000

Debt-riddled owner flogs shares.

Sumner Redstone has sold his controlling stake of Midway Games for a paltry USD 100,000 (GBP 66,718 / EUR 79,241), or just USD 0.0012 per share.

It's 1992 all over again. Two of gaming's greatest pugilists have revived their long-standing rivalry, with Mortal Kombat creator Ed Boon claiming his new game will "kick" Street Fighter IV's "ass", while Capcom has accused Midway of still "riding the coattails" of its brawler.

Even DC blokes have fatalities - Boon

In new Mortal Kombat. Well, "brutalities".

Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe jolly well will have fatalities, series co-creator Ed Boon has reiterated, and even the licensed good guys on the DC side will have equivalents.
