Mortal Kombat vs. DC Universe at the MCM Expo

For the first time ever Scorpion, Sub-Zero and the Mortal Kombat warriors battle with Batman, Superman and other popular DC Universe super heroes... and now you can get closer to the action than ever before at this October’s MCM Expo.

Midway’s stand will host playable pods of Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe for consumers to experience the game for the first time in the UK, as well as offer tons of giveaways and goodies up for grubs, weekend long competitions and a VIP area for the MK community to meet, connect and play against the staff of Midway.

The MCM expo also plays host to a number of DC artists, including John McCrea (Superman, Hitman), Ethan Van Sciver (Green Lantern, The Flash), Andie Tong (Batman), Lee Townsend and Kev Walker (Legion of Superheroes).

Interview opportunities are open with the artists, and would make a fantastic extra to any features planned on Mortal Kombat vs DC Universe.
