Midway to unveil Mortal Kombat tonight

To include DC Universe characters?

Midway has said it will be unveiling its fresh Mortal Kombat game tonight, at around midnight UK time.

The eighth game in the brutal fighting series is reportedly going to include characters from DC Comics like Batman and Superman. Tom thinks Marvel is better; he likes Spider-Man.

Midway told us it was planning a "next-gen" Mortal Kombat instalment in a financial call last October, but has been Cagey on it since.

The Chicago studio responsible for the series was one of many Midway teams to be handed the Unreal Engine 3 in 2005.

Lui Kang expect to hear more soon, then.
