Plus, pick your favorite 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.

Mortal Kombat warriors and DC Universe heroes engage in battle for the first time on the Xbox®360 and PlayStation®3. In the ultimate Elseworlds story, players can now explore what would happen when Sub-Zero faces off against Batman, and much more.
