Midway is set to bring Ultimate Mortal Kombat to Nintendo DS this November as part of a broader push to support Nintendo's money-spinning consoles.

UMK will combine the fighting of the original Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 release and the "Puzzle Kombat" of Mortal Kombat: Deception in a single cart, with a new record-keeping ability and online multiplayer, the publisher said.

It's not the only Midway game out in November mind - with racing title Cruis'n and mini-game compilation Game Party both announced for Wii yesterday.

They will be joined on shelves by The Bee Game (DS, GBA), which sees Maya the Bee and her friend Willie search for their friends, while Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends: Imagination Invades (DS) is based on a Cartoon Network programme of the same name.

"The Wii and Nintendo DS require games that are innovative and take full advantage of a unique control scheme to offer a truly different type of gameplay experience," said Matt Booty, Midway Worldwide Studios' executive vice president.

"We are very excited to be bringing classic Midway franchises such as Mortal Kombat and Cruis'n along with powerful licensed content like Foster's Home for Imaginary Friends to the massive installed base of Nintendo system owners."
